-- Jonathan Baker, a Senior Portfolio Manager at Bristol Financial in Luxembourg recommends investors have a dual-faceted investment strategy with Apple Computer Inc. Speaking from his companies offshore banking division in Panama, Jonathan says "I am putting the firms bigger clients heavily into Apple Computer but not just Stock. Now is the time to invest in Apple Call Options for between 10%-20% of the value of your portfolio depending on how much risk you are comfortable with"
He goes on to talk about the figures "Even a small block of $20,000 invested in this stock at $250 will be worth $30,000 at $375. With 20% of the $10,000 invested in a $280 call option the total investment is likely to be worth more than $75,000 because of the leverage in the options. Of course there is more risk involved in options but in this case we feel the risk/reward ratio is heavily in our favor"
Various analysts worried that iPad strength may slow Mac sales which of course would have been counterproductive to Apple's sales on the whole but this has proven to be wrong. Mac sales are strong and the release of the new iPod and iPod Nano will drive holidays sales demand.
Disclosure: Jonathan holds several open positions in Apple Computer Inc.
