In this video, Motley Fool analyst Austin Smith has a message for investors: Don't get too comfortable with the current state of things. He reminds us that only a few months ago, the Dow was way down and Apple was at $700 per share. Now, Apple is tumbling, and the Dow is reaching historic highs. Austin tells us some of the factors behind these rises and falls and cautions against investing based on short-term market trends. He reminds us that the best way to invest is always to look at the fundamentals and make smart decisions about good companies -- whether the market likes them or not.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on reasons both to buy and to sell Apple, as well as what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward. To get instant access to his latest thoughts on Apple, simply click here now.
