Better to buy Apple stock or options on Apple stock?

Asked by kevbo (25611points) June 17th, 2008 from iPhone

I’ve never traded, but I figure Apple is a safe bet for the year ahead given the worldwide iPhone release. Do you know which is the better play?

it depends. if you just want a quick profit in the short run, then i would buy stocks. if youre in it for a bigger investment, i’d go either way.

@Kevin: check out the Apple spread sheet, financial analysis, and price/earnings ratio, for starters.  has had an enormous surge since I bought it at $40, thinking myself so smart ( and sold at $20).

Talked about this quite a bit in http://www.fluther.com/disc/14969/invest-in-apple/ . I wouldn’t invest in them right now… but it all ultimately depends on:

* How much are you looking to invest?
* For how long?

Give us some information and there are plenty of people on Fluther who will be happy to advise.
