This Market Has Sinewy Legs: Apple Inc. (AAPL), The Boeing Company (BA)

“Did the fire look at you?” – Ronald Bartel, Backdraft

I am constantly amazed at the overwhelming number of analysts and screaming TV heads that discuss “the market” as if it were a living, breathing being, capable of thoughts, feelings, even speech. As I listen to these people and read their words, “Mr. Market” takes an animated, human form, and depending on the market’s “mood,” it has a vast number of characteristics, the most annoying when there’s little volume and it just lays on the couch, scratching stubble, and doing little more than taking up space.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)

As the Dow Jones Industrial Average slowly grinds upward, unrelenting, paying no mind to GDP talk, The Boeing Company (NYSE:BA), batteries ablaze, or the confusing downfall and sudden “uncoolness” of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), it’s time to put our speculative slacks on, roll up our sleeves, and scratch our heads as we enjoy this run up, all the way to 14,000 and beyond. Warm up the confetti cannons.

“Market wants higher…” one of my all-time favorite quotes as though the market is Shaun White, soaring 24-feet above the pipe deck in the Winter X games. Moving higher, as we listen to countless reasons why someone thinks a stock is experiencing a sell-off. Over the course of a few months it starts to sound like whiny excuses. It started as “profit-taking”, then it was for “tax reasons”, then it was “broken”, and ultimately the miniscule miss that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) reported had everyone dumping the stock as if it had the flu.

Now we have a market that “behaves” independent of the performance of the once-golden super fruit, and he/she continues to move upward, in spite of the bitter Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) cider being served up. Even as an Apple investor, I grew weary of the incessant, often forced conversations about the stock. No wonder so many people hate it. Enough already; who cares, it’s your perception that’s broken, not the company. There isn’t a CEO roaming the planet that would gladly welcome Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s “problems.”

So given the overreaction to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s recent call, Dow component, Boeing, should have a similar reactionary sell-off. Their Dreamliners going up in flames, the stock has only shed a microscopic 3% year-to-date, “Mr. Market” laughing in the faces of everyone, “wanting more”. While Boeing floats around $74 resistance levels, regardless of their juicy 2.6% dividend yield, I would rather wait for the rumors, news, scandals, and smoke to clear before considering a position.
