Apple ( AAPL) ($415.05) traded as low as $385.10 on April 19, and dipped below $400 again on June 28 to $388.87. My weekly value level is $401.45 with my annual pivot at $421.05 and annual risky level at $510.64. I haven't bought an iPad, iPod or iPhone, or any other Apple product since the Apple 2E.

Dell ( DELL) ($13.44) has been trading back and forth around $13.00 as the potential deals to take the company private continue to take shape. On Monday, Michael Dell's $24 billion LBO was endorsed by ISS.

Three years ago I bought my first Dell desktop computer and it's been three years of grief. About a month after setup and installing all my software and files the computer kept crashing. They wanted to send me a new hard drive and install it myself. Finally they sent me a new computer. After another month or so I tried to print graphs and the keyboard was faulty as that function would not work. Dell had to send me a new keyboard. Then two months ago my computer crashed again. Dell support sent me a new operating system to install. This did not work so they told me that I needed new hard drives. I fired them and went to a local PC expert and with fingers crossed I am back up and running. My son had a similar experience with a Dell laptop. I say avoid Dell products and I hope they go private so I do not have to track the stock anymore.

Hewlett Packard ( HPQ) ($25.17) set its 2013 high at $25.87 on June 19 and again on July 8. My semiannual value level is $24.24 with a monthly risky level at $26.67. Remember when HP was considering getting out of the PC business? My son is glad they didn't as he endorses his new H-P laptop. We recently found an old Packard PC in our storage garage, vintage mid-1990s. My son set it up over the weekend and it still worked. He was able to extract all of the files he wanted.

IBM ( IBM) ($194.98) set its 2013 low at $187.68 on April 22 and on June 28 there was a secondary low at $188.41. My annual value level is $171.70 with a weekly pivot at $197.12 and monthly risky level at $203.60. I owned and liked three Think Pads over the years and was upset when that line was sold to Lenovo.

Intel ( INTC) ($23.18) set its 2013 high at $25.98 on June 4 and traded down to $23.03 on Monday on a Wall Street downgrade. Weakness in the stock price resulted in an upgrade to buy from hold at www.ValuEngine.com. My monthly value level is $22.95 with a weekly pivot at $24.01 and quarterly risky level at $25.38. I like Intel as most of my PCs and Laptops had 'Intel Inside.'
