    $135? I'm definitely fine with that. I bought apple when it was around $72 or so, it raised to $95 a week or two ago, but now it's sitting at about $85. I will be extremely pleased if it peaks over $110, let alone $135.

    Several hours of looking at Apple blogs, so I can't track exact sources down. I have read it though, basically they predict a niche market and that's it, down to the price.

    Rofl, if you invest simply on what an analyst says, then you deserve to lose the money. You can't just go in and throw money into a stock that you know nothing about. Look at the XBox 360 release... I am sure everyone thought MSFT was going to skyrocket, but it didn't... in fact, it lost around 11% the first week of the XBox 360 release.

    But people invest depending on suggestions and probability - don't they.
    You need to take the risk.

    No, morons invest based on suggestions and probabilities. People who make good money invest on research and probabilities. It's not that hard to dig up some SEC filings, conference calls, etc.

    But that's how the most money is made, by looking at the way a company is going and then predicting what it will end up as.

    Stocks and shares are a completey new world to me though, I really find it funny when you switch on Bloomberg to be confronted with an array of numbers general babble.
