This Sure Is One Tough Market Real Money Pro($)

Stocks have basically gone nowhere since the Fed ended QE in 2014.

And We're Off! Real Money Pro($)

The iPhone 7. The first cycle involves the iPhone's annual update. We think customers and investors are both attuned to this cycle and will buy accordingly. The odds are that Apple shares will remain range-bound until we get closer to late summer, when iPhone 7 buzz will really build and the Apple rumor mill will kick into high gear. Until then, major movement for AAPL's share price seems unlikely no matter what Buffett does. The Future. The second product cycle that Apple must contend with is the "What's Next for the iPhone?" one. Global smart-phone penetration rates still point to growth ahead for what's arguably the most addictive device on the planet. But at some point, Apple will need to have a new product (and preferably several). Consumers and investors expect Apple to deliver groundbreaking innovation each year these days, but that's a hard or impossible expectation to live up to. However, while many are waiting for Apple to unveil a new, groundbreaking product, the tech giant is not-so-quietly building up its service business. We like that given the growing subscription nature of Apple's services. After all, subscriptions tend to drive both predictable cash flow and expansion of earnings multiples. To us, this is just one more reason for Buffett to be patient. One final thought: As we saw with Buffett's original IBM investment in 2011, The Oracle's timing isn't always perfect. So, we'd recommend holding off on buying Apple shares until we clear through most of the summer. However, we'll definitely put a tickler in our iPhone calendars to check out Apple stock in early August!
Berkshire Hathaway revealed a $1 billion stake in Apple. 
And buying it about to be indicated.
That means we should be thinking more about defense than buying.
Upbeat but unfounded forward estimates can make us feel better, but they can cost us money, so be careful out there.
J.C. Penney was showing signs of volatility following its latest earnings release. 
It's fair to ask how so many people failed to foresee the recent downturn in business prospects for Apple (AAPL), the earnings disappointment at Disney (DIS) or this week's "Retail Wreck."
