Why I bought AAPL on Oct 8

I bought $49,761 of AAPL on Oct 8.  Permalink to this paragraph

My investment is now worth $54,933. Permalink to this paragraph

That's 10.5 percent growth in less than a month. Permalink to this paragraph

A picture named imac.gifI bought the stock because I was going to buy everything Apple sold from now until forever. The last product I had yet to purchase was the company's stock. That was a mistake. The beauty of owning the stock is that you can use the increase in value to fund the hardware habit. So far so good.  Permalink to this paragraph

I recognize the signs.  Permalink to this paragraph

It's like a virus I tell you. Permalink to this paragraph

PS: I just checked on at the Apple store. My family pack of Leopard has shipped, and will arrive tomorrow by 10:30AM. Now that's cool! No penalty for ordering online vs visiting the store. Way to go. Permalink to this paragraph
