This is one of the things that I think is actually a smart thing to do, rather than a thing for dummies to do. If you want to get in on the iPhone 5 mania and make money buying Apple stock, you need to buy the stock NOW, before the September 12, 2012 announcement and NOT after the announcement.
Stocks run up on ANTICIPATION and before the announcement that is when the anticipation builds up. Once the announcement is made (along with any other news like perhaps the iPad mini), the stock might actually go down.
So, if you are thinking of profiting from Apples extreme popularity before the iPhone 5, the iPad mini, and the Apple TV you need to be buying the stock right now before any of those things actually become a reality. That is not saying that the stock will not go up after those things are rolled out but there might be a lull or even pull back between the announcement and the earnings that show just how popular those products are.
If you haven’t bought stock before, check out this quick tutorial on how to buy Apple stock.
