Is Apple a Buy After This Huge Surge?


Today,'s Austin Smith and Chris Bledsoe look at whether Apple is a buy today after clocking an impressive 7.2% pop.

While many are left scratching their head at the outsized gain, Austin and Chris attribute it to built-up optimism and strengthening fundamentals that got swept under the rug of fiscal-cliff uncertainty. While everyone was worried about what lawmakers would do, Apple quietly slipped into "too-crazy-cheap-to-ignore" territory, and all it took was one big day to unlock the bulls.

There is absolutely no argument that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with more than 1,000% gains. 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 both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and more importantly, your portfolio) going forward.
