That will be great for shareholders when it happens, but it's going to take more than a year to hit those milestones.

But I'm going to show you an easy-to-make trade that made my Money Calendar Alert Members as much as 175% in the 11 days it took shareholders to book just 2.46%.

But a closer look at the AAPL Q3 earnings shows the sharply negative reaction wasn't justified. If anything, it shows that Apple has spoiled investors with spectacular earnings beats.

But the newest big story out of Cupertino is hardly the status quo - even for a firm like Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL).

It will also be the perfect boost to Apple's stock price as the market gyrates daily around it. Let me show you why and how you can profit....

This morning I've got a $1,000 piece of useless high-tech hardware hanging over my fireplace at home in Oregon. It used to be a fabulous 50-inch Samsung SmartHub television.

Today I'll tell you a story about what's happened because it illuminates something critically important when it comes to your money - why you won't see me recommend a single retail tech stock - save two.

That may strike you as odd given how often we've spoken about Technology as one of the six Unstoppable Trends we're following, but there's a reason.

Several, actually.

Beginning with an experience that may hit close to home for you, too... and fortunately is going to point us to the only two retail tech stocks I recommend as a "buy."

Apple Stock Price Flat Despite Impressive Q2 Earnings (AAPL)

Stock market news

Apple stock slipped 1% in early morning trading Tuesday and later went flat as Wall Street yawned at another great quarter for the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant.

AAPL stock had gained 5% in the week leading up to its Q2 earnings announcement, and even was up about 1% in after-hours trading. Apple stock closed at $132.65 yesterday.

The mild reaction is oddly dismissive of a striking earnings beat for Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL).
