  • Apple Earnings Make a Mockery of the System - Again [View article]
    This is not an attack on Apple so please don't misconstrue the commentary. Perhaps the title is a bit misleading....The point of the piece is to show that the analysts are not adding value via their research. They are essentially part of the sales team that helps generate attention for a product their company wants to sell. We can debate the merits of that, but I think it's pretty clear that most analysts are not very good at predicting anything and therefore we have to call into question their purpose. If they are just helping sell stuff then that's fine. It should be disclosed as such. But pawning these people off as "experts" creates a conflict of interest and is very misleading.

    I think Apple is a fantastic company for what it's worth....This story has nothing to do with them really....
