I am curious about how Apples stock is going to handle the lawsuit the DOJ is announcing today at noon about price fixing. I'm sure this is just the begining of things for Apple, wouldn't surprise me if they get hit like Microsoft constantly did.

Out of those 3 stocks I would have the least confidence in Priceline. With as emotionally driven as the stock market is, I can't understand why values that flucuate by the minute matter to such a large amount of the population. Everybody is so focused on these stock values that they overlook things like where the company is headed, the company's past, and how liquid is the company.

@Jacob: it scares me that the market is so prone to mood swings, though. Last I checked the Dow was down 200 points on some minor bad news. Yet Apple did OK even after Steve Jobs died...go figure.

You are welcome Wale. 

I think it depends on the products you are selling. Innovation is relative to the product line. If a firm launches an innovative feature or hardware it should take appriopriate measures to highlight that innovation to the customers. 

As your example suggests, a firm cannot rely only on innovation to maintain sustainability. There are certain other factors that play an important role in maintaing market share.

Stock markets are always in fluxuating mood and hence there may be chances for both profit and loss. Since last year some corrections are happened, it’s difficult to predict about any more changes in near future. But any investment in equity for a long time (minimum 5 years) can help you to get a better yield.

@Wale. It's all relative when it comes to investments. Concepts such as 'early' and 'late' vary from investor to investor. It's a function of how much one is willing to lose in return for a future possibility of making higher gains. You can choose to wait even though you keep on losing a bit everyday but there is always a possibility that the downward trend will be reversed tomorrow.

If you are already in profit, it's easier to wait for longer. However, if the losses start eating away from the initial investment, a quick exit may start to look appealing. It is a tough call though I must admit...

Agreed Cryptoman, share both the risk and profits. Meanwhile, isnt it more precarious taking an earlier exit at this present time or later?

Thanks Seydzunair. Keeping the sustainability heavily hinged on innovations they could conjure up that may draw consumers atttraction as well, investors. Take a look at RIM today, touch screen innovation caught up with its BB big time and now at back foot of consumer markets.

@Wale: I agree with you completely and that is why I said that I was concerned about Apple sustaining its growth in the upcoming years. 

I have seen that over the years it becomes difficult for companies to grow as rapidly as they did before. At a later stage, it just becomes a game of sustainability. If a company is able to sustain is profits, keep its shareholders and consumers happy I believe it is doing a great job. And I would love to invest in such an enterprise.
