How A Celebrity Apple Analyst Lost Millions Of Dollars Betting Big On AAPL

Andy Zaky

This guy bet big on Apple and lost hard.

Andy Zaky has been one of the most famous independent Apple analysts for years. The self-taught, 33-year-old investor has offered some of the most wildly accurate predictions on Wall Street, and in the past he’s been pretty spot on with his bullish calls to buy AAPL stock.

But something happened to Apple’s stock value after hitting its September 2012 high of $700+ per share. It suddenly plummeted, and it has continued to decrease for the past 5-6 months. Speculation abounds, but no one has been able to pinpoint exactly why AAPL has been—and still is—taking such a beating.

As you can imagine, many investors have lost a lot of money betting on Apple’s success over the past several months, and morale is weakening on Wall Street. Zaky is one of the best examples of how incorrectly predicting Apple’s stock value can have grave consequences.

Apple Stock Continues To Soar, Hits $680 A Share Following Victory Over Samsung

So predictable.

You’re probably going to see a lot of stories like this in the coming weeks.

And unsurprisingly, Zaky was right. Apple stock hit an all-time high of $636.64 last Friday, but that’s nothing compared to today’s price of $660.73, which makes Apple the most valuable publicly-traded stock of all time.

Apple Stock Hits All-Time High As Investors Rush To Get In Early Before iPhone 5

Apple Stock Hits All-Time High As Investors Rush To Get In Early Before iPhone 5

Watch it go up and up and up.

Apple stock hit an all-time high of $636.64 per share on Thursday, and today that price continues to rise. The last time Apple jumped above $630 a share was back in April, right before its share price began a six-week decline that knocked $115 off the price — and $100 billion off Apple’s market cap — when it ended on May 18.

It’s unlikely we’ll see a repeat of that now, however. According to one analyst, investors are so keen to plough their money into Apple before the iPhone 5 sends share prices rocketing that there’s no sign of those prices dropping anytime soon.
