“Puts are cheap enough,” Terranova offered.
Colin Gillis, an analyst at BGC Financial, maintained a “hold” rating on the stock and said he would review his price target of $450 per share.
Gillis noted increasing competition from Samsung in the smartphone and tablet markets, Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility and Amazon’s popular Kindle platform as challenges for Apple.
Plus, there was the issue of cash reserves.
“That cash on the balance sheet is more than any company in their right mind could ever possibly deploy, so it’s got to come back at some point via dividends or stock buybacks, and I think most people know that.”
