Someone educate me here... So, the stock is going to split down to lets say $90 a share on Monday. For a person who has never invested/bought stocks before, is this a good time to buy? I am thinking that the stock (more than likely) will increase to at least $200 in the next 5 years or so (probably even sooner). What is the likelihood that Apple wont release something new and everyone will go googoo/gaga over it? What is the likelihood that Apple stock won't go up over time? I am not looking for a "get rich quick" stock... just saying, now that the stock is "more affordable" for common people like me, wouldn't it be a good idea to buy?
