Apple (AAPL) Stock: The Case for Up

By Jan 2, 2013, 2:12 PM Author's Blog  

With the VIX at lows, and central banks across the globe printing money at breakneck pace, it seems a great time to be long equities. Not that I think this is good for the long run, but for at least a couple years this should be great for equities.

Specifically, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has decline 25% from its peak in September, probably due to investors with large gains taking their capital gains before 2013 when such capital gains rates will go up.

Apple (AAPL) Stock: The Case for Up

Given so many interest groups have an interest in asset prices rising, and the central banks across the world have this as their priority, I think once banks get some of their final legacy lawsuits off their backs they will start lending again, M2 will explode, and prices will rise. First in assets.
