    The Classic UGG boot is its own category, which means it's not a fad and it's here for the long run. Think heels, flats or flip flops.

    For those of you complaining about what Apple should do with regard to spending more on R&D, reducing buybacks and making hefty dividends:

    I call BS until I see some numbers from you, Bob...

    Share price drops on specific dividend pay dates. Even though you should really be using ex-dividend dates.

    Hop to it!

    That share price reduction is usually tied to "special dividends" and not ordinary ongoing ones. Go look at AAPL's share price and dividend payment correlation that you speak of and report back...

    Bottom Line:

    If Apple thinks their stock price is still undervalued, they will continue loading up on buybacks. And they'll continue doing buybacks until they no longer make sense, at which point they will focus on major dividend increases.

    We'll have to wait for a republican to take the President's seat before we see any repatriation...

    For those of you butchering AAPL's dividend history:

    2012 = $1.51 per year split adjusted

    2013 = $1.74

    2014 = $1.88

    The increase from 2012 to 2013 was 15.1%. 2013 to 2014 was a 7.9% increase, but Apple had a splendid Q1FY15 and a 15% increase to $2.16 is more than covered by $3.06 in earnings. We are talking 142% covered vs last year's 110%.

    A 6.4% increase to $2.00 is way too low...

    Expect a 15% raise to $2.16. This will setup next year's 15% increase to $2.50.

  • Coca Cola - Undervalued: Stock Valuation Using A 10-Year Cash Flow Projection And Algorithmic Analysis [View article]
    I believe KO is in the midst of a major transition and is not the same guaranteed success story that it was in the past. KO needs to continue to reinvent itself in order to push past the ever-growing reduction in cabonated drink consumption.

    Bottom line, since 2009 I've owned a substantial amount of KO that has been paying a healthy dividend. As a long-term investor, I am relatively concerned about KO's continued dividend growth. The past 50 years have been a phenominal growth period, but the next 50 might not be for KO. At current prices, KO is neither a bargain nor overvalued. KO is fairly priced. Holding.

    "We plan to triple the number of Apple Retail Stores over the next two years."

    I wonder if Tim was only talking about China here.

  • Apple: Time For A Dividend Raise [View article]
    Bill - Great article as always. I also came to the conclusion that Apple will raise the dividend to $14/year. A nice 3.5% yield for those lucky enough to get in around $400 last year.
