One of the biggest pieces of news in 2017 so far.
It was the news in February 2017, that Warren Buffett massively increased his stake in Apple stock. ¬†His stake was increased from $1.5 billion to a whopping $18.5 billion. ¬†That is a pretty big jump, all happening in about 4-6 months.
This is HUGE NEWS.
One of the reasons is that he doesn’t go that big on very many stocks. ¬†It’s usually just a few stocks that he goes that big on, the +$10 billion category. ¬†So when he does that he is showing massive conviction in the trade.
There is also the surprise that he would buy so much of a technology stock. ¬†Normally he doesn’t do that. ¬†He sticks to companies that he knows about and can understand.
Eventually Buffett figured out that Apple has “a sticky product.”
There are also several others reasons why he did it. ¬†Some of the that the average investor does not see. ¬†All these reasons are covered, plus so much more in The Apple Trade. ¬†
This was a very big vindication of the strategies taught in both The Order Flow Mastery Course and The Apple Trade.
The reasons are because first of all, I still owned a bunch of Apple stock at the time this news was announced. ¬†So it did help keep the uptrend going and I did profit more. ¬†(and for those of you not into equity trading yet – it is a possibility that should be seriously explored)
Also because back around the year 2012, I created a lesson in The Mastery Course, which talked about Buffett’s big mistake. ¬†About how he had bought so much of IBM stock, when he should have bought Apple stock. ¬†And that if he bought Apple stock back in 2011 or 2012, he would have made SO MUCH MORE MONEY. ¬†It’s in the lesson called: ¬†“Ideal Goal Of An Order Flow Trader.” ¬†Now, finally after five years or so, Buffett has corrected his mistake, sold some of his IBM stock, and bought a ton of Apple stock. ¬†So the old dog can learn new tricks.
