Bought two seperate positions of equivalent dollar amounts.

Per share price:
APPL: $268.30
MSFT: $24.53

Which position will be worth more at the end of the calendar year?

Bought AAPL $10 below its 52-week high.
Bought MSFT at a 9-month low and $2.50 above its 52-week high low.

Edit: f'd that up. Didn't make sense before.

Hmm, tough call.  I like both of them, and tech in general these days.

I vote AAPL, though, just because I've been meaning to sell half my position there for a while, but still haven't pulled the trigger and it's worked out for me.  laziness ftw.

Closed the day at 24. Not bad. I was hanging around 18.50-19.00 for about two hours too.  Oops

Initial offering went from 14 to 17, which sounds pretty good.

I cast the lone bet on MSFT


you should put a position in on TSLA.

you'll either go broke or rich on it.

If you had gone long at the open and dumped it and gone short around 11:30, you would have made a killing today.

Both stocks are performing almost identically on a percentage basis from my purchase price. It's uncanny.

Unfortunately, they're both down ~6.2% in 1.5 days of trading.  Sad
