  • Apple Stock Price Likely To Peak Before Long [View article]
    Blair
    You wear glasses, but are not only shortsighted, but cannot see ahead. Everything you say is looking in the rear view mirror.
    Nowhere in your analysis is the possibility of Apple having created a new and novel product that they will unleash. All you do is sit there like an accountant analyzing figures and sales with God knows what sources (Blair estimates perhaps)
    Yeah, eventually most new awesome products become commoditized. Look at the HP Laser Jet which sold for thousands of dollars in 1980, and that's in 1980 dollars. A smaller, faster, much better laser printer today costs $130 or something in 2014 dollars.
    GEE, I wonder whether innovation will be a key to growth and maintaining the brand. GEE I wonder. But keep predicting doom and gloom for a company whose founder predicted it would take 5 years for the competition to catch up to it (which it has largely) but go ahead and keep looking backwards if you want to keep losing your money.

  • Best Buy: Intrinsic Value Stays In The $30+ Region, Strong Buy [View article]
    I don't get it. Same store Sales are down. Profits are up due to cost cutting only. How long can you cut costs while sales drop. They need the iPhone 6 to come out to spur sales, or whatever super hot gadget will grab the public's attention.
    People are shopping differently today than the past. I went to Best Buy to purchase a computer, and though the guy who helped me was very nice and knowledgeable, he was the only person working in the section and wasn't able to offer his help for a long long time (aka- cost cutting)
    The Macbook Air was still priced at $100 above what I could get it for at the Apple Store. Yeah, they'll match, but why do I want to wait for them to do so. I associate Best Buy with a ripoff and won't want to shop there.
    I will say, the store within a store idea has some merit, and the Samsung employee helping my friend was great, but why shop at Best Buy really when I can get a superior experience elsewhere?
    I'm not the only one who feels this way, you want to look at charts and numbers rather than the actual experience, you're going to lose. Same as the idiots who don't pay attention to the fact that Blackberry was losing massive sales to Apple when my friends and others were all switching over.
    What will make same store sales rise?? Where is the profit coming from when they have to match Amazon's thin margins to generate a sale?

    when it comes to high-end smart phones, it is Not a question of what people "need" but rather want.
    If you're looking at a Motorola E, perhas this gets more blurry, not in this case

    the iPhone 6 will certainly cost more than the 5s. Samsung sells the Note to a premium to the S5. The larger screen, the faster processor etc. Not to mention all the new tech Apple is putting in it (Sapphire perhaps) etc etc.

    Blairs assumption of cost is not totally out of the ballpark

    I have read the Samsung fngerprint scanner, I believe on their latest Galaxy, is unreliable.

    This is idiotic. The FIngerprint scanner is anything but a gimmick. It is very valuable. You clearly know nothing of biometrics. This was a serious advancement.

    Apple sells well in China as it is a product which states affluence, and in general, Chinese society is about status and ego.
    Additionally, Japan and Korea are historical enemies in China, creating psychological barriers for people purchasing the product there.

    To address the "psychological" 7-1 split, here is a column addressing that http://bit.ly/1f9fiwU which I hope is of interest

    In fairness, the whole market has been rising. That said, to be bullish a dying Blackberry that was obviously in decline if one just looked at what their friends were buying/ trading it in for, is pretty much idiotic.

  • Apple: Q2 Results Are Not What They Seem [View article]
    there is something so logically flawed in what you state. CHina Mobile, with 700 million or so subscribers starts selling the iPhone for their network in January, to a population more than double the United States, and you contend that Apple lost market share.
    It just doesn't make sense. For sure some of the products sit in inventory yet to be sold, but come on man, just look from a birds eye view without your precious numbers.

    there is pretty big chasm in differences between luxury cars and high end phones. Much more noticeable. Sorry, your analogy does not hold up.
