Apple Bottom: I Told You So

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- There's value in being recognized for doing something notable. It gets respect from your peers, elevates your status and opens doors. But there's little value in asking for that recognition.

It might stick in your craw that your peers simply ignored the notable thing, or even worse, throw ad hominem attacks and demean you by calling you a kamikaze, or some such thing. Yet, at the risk of sounding a bit undignified, I just can't help myself to stick it back in their craw and say: "See, I told you so."

Back on April 2, right here on TheStreet, I called the $390 bottom for Apple (AAPL), to the dollar. I also said that Apple and the major indexes would rocket forward and issued a strong buy alert. And both predictions came true.

But have Apple bears even mentioned a single word about it? No! Instead they have been busy writing scathing articles about Apple, prognosticating the iMaker's impending doom, and calling Tim Cook a blithering idiot. I guess if that's what it takes to get readers, you gotta do, what you gotta do.

Still, I feel empty. Because this article will come and go; many people will ignore it ... which is very puzzling.

So, I'll continue to fight the good fight. TheStreet needs someone to balance the unbridled and misplaced vitriol from Apple bears. Let's start by reaffirming that Apple is the best hope for leading the U.S. economy to a full and complete recovery.

Apple is not succumbing to mediocrity, nor is it being murdered by Tim Cook, and this run is not only real, it's the start of a historic bull run, the likes of which have never been seen. So I restate my Kamikaze call, that Apple will ultimately reach $1,600 sometime in 2015, and $1,404 by the end of 2014.

This fight is never-ending, it's like that scene from Matrix Reloaded where Neo battles thousands of replicating Agent Smiths. These agents are Apple analysts, who are, in my opinion, glorified financial reporters. They are the tools of investment brokers and big consultancies. They have extracted incredible damage on our brokerage accounts because of their inane assessments. It is unnatural these analysts should wield such power.
