I am unwavering in my view that Apple's stock is worth owning despite analyst-inspired turbulence.
As I mentioned today in Columnist Conversations, Credit Suisse has reduced its 2016 earning-per-share estimate for Apple (AAPL) by about 6% owing to signs of slowing orders in the company's supply chain.
I often and routinely trade around my long and short investment positions.

I give the win to the bears today (finally!), as Mr. Market (thus far) has made two failing attempts to rally. Bonds continued to drop in price and rise in yield. As I mentioned, in response to Kim G in the Comments section, I expect only a gradual rate rise in 2015 through 2017.The 10-year U.S. note, now at about 2.24%, has probably made most of its room to the upside in yield for the balance of the year. Municipals were flat to slightly lower as was high yield -- though Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) is up a penny on the day.   Closed-end municipal bond funds are basically unchanged on the day. As I wrote at the end of September, I don't expect any/much capital appreciation in the year ahead, but I see the funds returning their dividends (annualized appreciation of about 6%). I believe this return will outperform the U.S. stock market over the next 12 months. Crude ends the session at lows, down by almost $1.15 a barrel. I initiated shorts in Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM), the latter of which went on my Best Ideas List yesterday. There will be more names as I move down the quality spectrum. The group got schmeissed today.  The U.S. dollar was a tad weaker; consumer nondurables -- especially of a Procter & Gamble (PG) kind -- continue to respond negatively to the overall recent trend in our currency (higher). CNBC Blather Index: This week I counted (when I wasn't under the influence of anesthesia) 49 bulls and three bears. Enough said --- a Bull Market in Complacency is back in force. Crickets from talking heads on Qualcomm (QCOM), down $10 today, and FireEye ( FEYE), down $7 today, who expressed confidence in the names and pro-forma earnings earlier in the week.  Remember: Fast talking and sound bites are not a reason to listen to these imbeciles who are three miles wide and an inch or two deep. Enough said. Banks continue their winning streak as the Pavlovian reaction to a rise in the 10-year U.S. note yield of 15 basis points in the last few weeks has now gotten a bit carried away. I am still long but down to tag ends and expect some serious profit-taking  in a market correction (5% to 10%).  In the life insurance sector, MetLife (MET) followed Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) with weak results. MET recently was put back on my Best Ideas List (short) and I added to it and Lincoln National (LNC) short yesterday. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), as a commentator mentioned in Columnist Conversation, appears to be rolling over Autos still skidding. Apple (AAPL), after a nice run, could have an appointment under $120 a share; I have been adding to my short position this week. The dive by Valeant (VRX) is weighing on Biowreck;  iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) is down by nearly 2% on the day. I wrote critically about the company about a week ago.  Mark today. (T)FANG might have topped -- just gauge the cheerleading. Radian (RDN), though up 2% today, has gotten quite inexpensive; it finally is rallying a bit today. Thanks for the comments on my accounting analysis of Facebook (FB).  Critical analysis is always important to read. I did my shorting yesterday, and I w
