I said it earlier, and I'll say it again: traders trade, investors invest, and those with a longer term time horizon--months instead of weeks; weeks instead of days--will reap the rewards when it comes to Apple.
The fact is, Apple has beaten the Street for the past seven straight quarters, and there's every indication that the company will do so again this time around. And yet the stock still languishes.
