Wall Street is Mars, the Silicon Valley of Venus

The dichotomy of reactions Silicon Valley and Wall Street the most recent quarter Apple are so remote that it is comical. At least, it would be comical if it did not include tens of billions of dollars flying out the window proverbial.

Apple posted monster 1st quarter, recording a whopping $ 54.5 billion in revenue and $ 13.1 billion in revenue. The company sold 47.8 million iPhones and 22.9 million iPads during the quarter, all records for Apple.

Apple rewards? A sharp sell-off on Wall Street who fell during the action of the company by 12 percent to $ 450.46. More than $ 50 billion market capitalization parties in 24 hours.

Reaction of Silicon Valley? Widespread shock and derision. Here are some of my favorites
    "Long story short, many people are either playing on the market today or be pretty stupid. Not quite as stupid as last year, but still stupid. Consequently, I am good on my word, and purchase shares of Apple as it is below $ 500 per share. would be stupid not to. Simply look at the numbers. "~ MG Siegler
    "To say that investors are idiots, it's really unfair to a search of idiots." ~ Mark Sigal
    "With a price-earnings ratio of less than ten years, Apple is incredibly cheaper than Amazon, which sports a ridiculous P / E 3583, believe it or not. And cheaper than Microsoft, which at least is safe to mind about 15, and Google, with a little No higher 23., which when all stacked, seems to make no sense at all. "~ John Koetsier
    ". This is why I do not think there is one thing that causes investors to flee Instead, there is a larger, more nebulous worry: When people start talking about Apple "hit a wall" or losing its "magic", what they are really saying is that they fear a deep gap in the business, a lack of passion and innovation that made it so special for so long n ' there is no data to support this allegation. anything in this quarterly report argues that this is just a basic. sense of fear that caused by the death of Steve Jobs and confirmed by all the stories we hear slightly negative Apple. "~ Farhad Manjoo

To say the technology community is not satisfied with Wall Street would be an understatement. But the truth of the matter is that there is a certain logic to the fall of Apple stock in the short term: People seem to forget that the stock market, like any market, is composed of people. Their emotional whims fluctuations cause some consider rational and others consider crazy. What, you do not think Wall Street found some of our valuations of start-up crazy? This is why I agree with the school of technical analysis when it comes to investing in the stock market.

Maybe Apple, Facebook, and roll the technology community roller coaster on Wall Street will result in more high-tech companies staying private instead of heading towards a possible IPO. Mark Zuckerberg did not have a Facebook IPO for these reasons, and other companies are finding ways to delay an IPO.

That all the drivel on profit Apple tells me, however, is that Silicon Valley and Wall Street are simply not on the same page. In fact, they are not on the same planet. Wall Street is Mars, the Silicon Valley of Venus.

Here's how I see it: all markets, large or small, are predictable irrational, because they are simply collections of irrational human beings. None of us is immune or innocent. Remember that, before investing on Wall Street or in a start-up.
