  • Apple: Analyzing The Icahn Buyback Potential [View article]
    Great article, Bill!

    Oppenheimer is probably kicking himself a bit for not taking on more debt in May. It's all good, though. Apple is doing the smart thing with these buybacks.

  • Apple: Boring Can Be Beautiful [View article]
    Nice article, Bill.

    Not sure how I feel about the Icahn purchase. This guy could be interested in extracting as much cash from Apple as he can. He's already talked to Tim Cook, discussing Apple's cash pile and thinking "if Apple were to do a huge immediate buyback how much would the price go up?"

    He holds way too many names. Diversify enough and you'll get the market average.

  • Apple: Boring Can Be Beautiful [View article]
    "Apple still doesn't have good innovation base on the message for 9/10."

    Apple hasn't even officially announced the event, relax.


    "The competion is tough for iPhone and iPad, look at the new nexus 7."

    The Nexus 7 has a nice display and that's it. The Nexus 7 is not an iPad competitor. The amount of people that purchase iPads vs Nexus products couldn't be any more opposite in size.


    "If iPad mini go to retina, the margin will be very low."

    You don't know what Apple plans on pricing it at so stop speculating on margins.


    "Also the cheap intelligent phone is very good nowadays."

    Welcome the iPhone 5C for people like you.

  • Icahn discloses Apple position, calls for bigger buyback; shares jump [View news story]
    CNBC is a jerk.

    What Ellison doesn't realize is that Steve Jobs knew that he would have to assemble Apple for his departure. It's not like last time in the 80s when he was fired. When Jobs departed Apple this last time, he made sure that it would not only survive without him but also prevail.

    Go Home Ellison, You Are Drunk

  • Apple's 5C Coming: BlackBerry Better Hurry [View article]
    Where do you come up with these "razor thin" margins?

    Make it for $150 and sell it for $300.

    Looks like 50% margins to me...

  • What Company Will Win The Race To $1,000? [View article]
    $1,000 is just a number... Multiply that number by all outstanding shares and then you get something worth talking about - Market Cap.

    By default, Apple could reach $1,000 just by continuing to repurchase shares while their market cap remains the same.

  • Apple seeks Samsung ban in court, ITC cases [View news story]
    FRAND patents and User Interface patents are two entirely different patents.

    Apple violated a FRAND patent because Samsung was unreasonable in their terms, while being reasonable in other business licensing terms. Samsung violated Apple's rubber banding patent because they're into copying without compensating the original inventor.

    As far as I'm concerned, all Samsung smartphones running android should be banned, but I'm a little biased.
