As someone who is a value investor and who does not believe in the Efficient Market Hypothesis, I can't get excited about the stocks you mentioned, because they are all overvalued.

Apple sells luxury goods that can be found cheaper elsewhere.  There's no reason anymore to buy an Apple product except for a cult following.  That is, until they come up with the next big thing, but from what I see, Google has more playing cards than Apple, not that I'd recommend anyone invest in GOOG.


That reminds me, MySpace had a cult following.  What are those shares worth today?

 

Anyway, you might have recommended AAPL a couple weeks ago when it was $450 a share and not now when it's $500 a share.

I guess basically we are looking at long term investments, albeit maybe pricey on some.

 

There certainly are a lot more worse bets, but then again there are better also..

We all pick our poisons, we just don't want to kill ourselves.

 

Thanks for naming Equities before having to go through slide show..

But did anyway, for further details....Thanks anyway.

What a joke-a "cash proof" stock. Is there even one stock that didn't go down August 2007-March 2009?
You shouldn't hold any stock in a bear market.

Exxon and Apple are two of the biggest companies screwing this country.  No surprise they'd end up on this list.
