tech company

We just heard a bad idea for a tech company that tops them all: this one involves Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL)...

A major media source recently suggested that Apple should drop one of its most popular products.

Here's the dumb advice we hope Apple doesn't take...

That's because a lot about how the stock market works is misunderstood.

Anyone expecting great things from the Apple stock price today following a flurry of announcements at the tech giant’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) was sorely disappointed.

But Wall Street totally missed how these WWDC announcements have the ability to drive the Apple stock price much higher…

Two Tech Firms with a Retail Presence I Can Get Behind

pre-market movers

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."

Q4 aapl earnings

We love Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) just as much as the next savvy investor... perhaps even more. We've long been invested in the innovative company, and we use its products day in and day out.

But last week, activist investor Carl Icahn made waves by stating Apple shares are worth $240... right now.

Here are three reasons why he's wrong. Trust us, you'll be glad you didn't listen to him once you know why...

How the UPS Guy Tweaked My Apple Stock Prediction

Apple Stock

We believe the iWatch will be one of the major catalysts that will drive Apple stock to a $1 trillion market cap.

After all, CEO Tim Cook promised that the new iDevice was his company's most "personal" product yet.

Here's why we couldn't agree more...

An Apple Stock History Timeline

Apple stock history

The Apple stock history reflects the remarkable journey this tech giant has had.

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) has one of the most compelling histories in Silicon Valley. Its return from near-death in the late 1990s under the leadership of tech icon Steve Jobs is the stuff of legend.

The company has gone from a market leader to irrelevance to the dominant tech titan it is today. And AAPL shareholders have been along for the ride.

This Apple stock history timeline tells the whole story...

How Much Money Does Apple Have? (AAPL)

How much money does Apple have?

In one sense, answering the question "How much money does Apple have?" is easy.

During its Q2 earnings conference call Monday, Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) reported that it now has $193.5 billion in cash and cash equivalents on its balance sheet.

That's a big number. But what could you do with it?

Here are a few crazy ideas...

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).

But the Q2 Apple earnings beat was no fluke. And it speaks volumes about the direction of Apple stock...

New Apple Stock Price Predictions See AAPL Soaring to $200

20150415-KFG-Varney

Of all the Apple stock price predictions out there, this may be the boldest: AAPL shares will reach $200 within 24 months.

And that bold call belongs to a seasoned market analyst with 33 years of experience -- Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald.

He wasn't shy about it, either. He made the call on the FOX Business program "Varney & Co." earlier this month, startling host Stuart Varney. Most AAPL stock price predictions are much lower.

Here's why Fitz-Gerald is so extraordinarily bullish on Apple stock right now...

Apple Earnings Estimates for Q2 and What to Expect Today

AAPL

Despite rising expectations, the consensus for the Q2 Apple earnings estimates will likely turn out to be too low.

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) reports its fiscal Q2 earnings after the market close today (Monday).

As usual, the iPhone will determine the size of the success of Apple's earnings. Apple's flagship product usually generates about 55% of the Cupertino, Calif.-based company's revenue.

Wall Street expects big things from Apple today. Here's what to look for...

How the Apple Watch Led to My Next Big Prediction (Nasdaq: AAPL)

The Apple Watch will be one of the catalysts that drives Apple Inc. to a $1 trillion market cap. Today, I predict how long it will take to get there - and how much that will boost Apple's share price.

We love our Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) products - the Apple Watch, the iPad, the MacBook, the iPhone. In fact, we say this company no longer sells products; it sells an entire ecosystem.

It sells itself.

Which is why we made the following prediction about its future share price...

Q2 AAPL Earnings Will Beat on Strength of iPhone 6

AAPL Earnings

The iPhone 6 may be the lone outperformer in the Q2 AAPL earnings, but that's all Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) needs to beat expectations.

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company reports its fiscal Q2 results Monday after the market close.

The iPhone makes up the majority of Apple's revenue, making it the key to success for AAPL earnings. And the figures will show the iPhone 6 had a stellar quarter.

That's because China has been snapping up iPhones like crazy. Just take a look at these numbers...
