    Yes, they are being generous by returning them, because they are not legally required to do so. Dividends and buybacks are bonuses to investors. They are not required.

    I think $125 may be more realistic.

    I think that's a bit optimistic, especially given the state of the market currently and Apple's tendency to sell off when it launches products.

    It can be seen as a bullish sign because it shows those bearish on the name are running away from the stock. Had short interest been at a 2014 high, it would have been seen as definitely bearish I believe.

    Oh, if this had been a short idea, and I had disclosed a short position, I would have been blasted for it.

    As a personal preference, I usually do not hold positions (long or short) in anything I write about.

    On the flip side, if I held a position, I'd be criticized for being biased.

  • Apple: A Record Quarter That Slightly Disappointed [View article]
    I wouldn't say heavy volume - it was basically 1/2 of the April quarter's day after volume and roughly 1/3 of the January quarter's day.

    Sure, it looks heavy compared to recent days, but for an earnings day, it wasn't that much.

    I thought it might pull back a little on the disappointing revenue number and low guidance. Maybe a market pullback as well.

    Many people out there were looking for 38 million plus. I thought my estimate was rather reasonable.

    That's also because they took out $14 billion in debt.

    Not quite the top end. And when you have a huge blowout last quarter plus a huge rise in the stock, Apple needed to do a little better.

    Apple gets the most coverage because it has the largest market cap, so it has the most impact on several indices (S&P 500, NASDAQ).

    Well, remember that the statement was 40% increase in production by Dec. 30th. Any models produced on 12/30 are likely not going to be sold until the following quarter (fiscal Q2).
