Buying stock on the day a product is released is foolish (and contrary to the intended purpose of stock market investments).

Based on development cycles of technology, an investor should buy stock 2 to 5 years before the release dates, which is to say, buying stock for the iPhone 5 phase should have been done during the iPhone 1 or 2 phase...

But let's not let realism and fairness get in the way of short term investment scams which are what the modern stock market exchanges make their money from.
