So, my question is - what is the value to me now of dropping $50k into AAPL? It doesn't seem like the gains would be significant.

Future gains may or may not be significant but chances are (although never say never) you won't lose money. Your savings account is probably giving you .03 interest; APPL will certainly be an improvement on that.

Or if it goes to 600 by year end when they hype the new Apple TV that is a 20% gain, if you have 50k in a CD or High Yield Savings Account you might be pulling in 0.8% - 0.9% - plus if they do decide on a one time dividend to use some of their $100B cash, you get an extra bonus. I'd take an easy 10k for doing nothing.

As impressive as the past decade has been for Apple, the company's "best days are still in the future," according to Ron Johnson, Apple's former retail chief and current CEO of J.C. Penney. Johnson, who helped build Apple into a retail juggernaut, says the company is poised to keep growing and taking market share because of its intense commitment to "innovation and quality." Apple is "incredible at creating products that people love," he says. "Nobody does hardware better; nobody does software better. Nobody does retail better. And they're just getting started in places like China." While the passing of Steve Jobs leaves a void at the firm, Johnson lauds his former colleagues. Apple has a "huge reservoir of talent," he says, citing CEO Tim Cook and design chief Johnny Ives as notable examples. Steve Jobs "built a team that is equally unmatched" and "I expect that team to really excel in the decade ahead," Johnson declares.

I'm just going to buy a couple thousand shares tomorrow. I've been questioning this move since it was under $300. I don't know where the ceiling is but this seems like a really safe investment. Plus, I really think iTV is going to be freaking huge when it's revealed later this year.
BTW, iPad 3 reveal is scheduled for March 7thish. 65 million iPad "retina" displays are in production from Samsung and LG. Confirmed LTE with VZW and AT&T. 1080p iTunes content to be announced with the iPad 3 along with a new Apple TV box (separate from iTV).

I'm not quite willing to risk my entire IRA on AAPL but, while GOOG and BIDU have done well by me lately, I may move all my tech money to AAPL.

Apple’s Hottest New 'Thing' May Be Dividend, Not iPad3
A dividend yield of 2.5 percent would equate to an annual dividend of $12.50 a share, or $11.65 billion. Many investors feel that is nothing for a company with an unprecedented $98 billion cash hoard. Plus, its estimated by Wu that Apple generated $45 billion in cash over just the last four quarters.

My accountant just scoffed at that and told me to only buy 1,000 shares tomorrow morning (instead of 2,000). So I'll only buy 1,000 shares tomorrow morning. Still pretty significant.

financial advisor: "hey, let me help 'diversify' your portfolio"
