    Can't take this +50 BMI clown. His "up speak" is beyond grating. Shut it off after deriding Trump. OK, clown shoe ... you just alienated ~50% of viewers with that puerile comment.

    Long Fitbit in May 2018, down 45%. Short AAPL in Jan 2019, up 33%. Tells you everything you need to know about his recycled ideas.

      To be fair to Mr Snarky, the Fitbit trade was a winner. His political commentary seems to be more hateful than before.

    Notwithstanding my down vote I hope MW is a regular as I find him useful for my contrarian trades against his recommendations. Crapple is just another obscenely overvalued US Tech firm and I look forward to the day it gets down to 120 per MW's earlier theory but given Trumptard watches this stock very closely and has Jay Powell firmly in his back pocket [pair of flip flop's], the combination of the intelligent idiots at the Fed and the buybacks could potentially keep this and the rest of the casino [Craps] stocks levitated for a few more years though I'm hoping we have a far worse repeat of last year's September until late Dec so I can get a buy order in at 120 or lower.

    At this point I think trying to short one of the biggest most successful companies in the world is just sub-optimal and very tricky for the average investor. John Burbank mentioned this re 'world class' companies and how even in bad markets they might just keep on chugging along for a long time. Just feel like there are other better ways to go short the market and put this stuff in the 'too hard' basket. Having said that, I respect the downside case and Apple definitely will get hurt if and when China uses them to retaliate against Trump's trade war tariffs.

    The uptalk makes this unwatchable.
