  • Apple iWatch: A Big Deal Or Not? [View article]
    I second jjkiam's comments. Apple fulfills human needs and desires that are often unrecognized by individuals and current markets. If a wrist band can send me an alert that I am about to have a heart attack, the potential sales of such a divide will easily exceed the iPod and iPhone together. It could well do more for the advancement of healthcare than the Affordable Care Act.

  • Apple: The Next 2 Months Are Critical [View article]
    I agree with LowRiskValue StrayTrader, start writing articles on this site as you seem to be a lot more knowledgeable than most of the current contributors. I would start with GTAT ;√).

  • Apple: The Next 2 Months Are Critical [View article]
    Thanks LARick:

    Apple has been notorious for very conservative guidance. How do you think they will handle guidance considering this new mix of products and the real possibility of unknown product introductions (still waiting on my 4K Ultra HD Apple TV)(Large Screen iPhone 6)(13" Giant iPad)(Car AppRadio)(????????) ?

    There are so many unknowns and only one guarantee, they will all be somewhat - insanely profitable for AAPL.

    Thanks for you comments, Michael

  • GT Advanced Technologies Vs. Corning: Crystalline Sapphire Is Better (And Worse) Than Gorilla Glass [View article]
    When the 500 pound Gorilla makes a decision to buy then I would argue that the market has already decided. Apple has the engineering expertise to make the scientific and material science evaluation of which is better and they came down on the side of sapphire.

    Then why utilize sapphire? You may just be stuck with an old and hopefully incorrect assumption about the future of PV's.

    Time will tell, Michael

    Unlimited uses after it is scaled up to accommodate larger size projects.

    Imagine your car's windshield generating enough electricity to:
    1) Dramatically extend your driving range 2) and/or recharge your Tesla or hybrid in just a few hours.

  • Apple Is Building A Mobile Payments Platform To Rival PayPal [View article]
    Priority Date for first patent cited was Apr. 2, 2012. We are at the two babies time mark of 18 months. I agree with HuFlungDung - Apple needs to move into these strategic opportunities in a much more efficient and effective manor. On the positive side I would hope that two years of time passing would portend the end of R&D and the launch of this produce in the near future.

  • Why I Sold Apple And Bought Yahoo [View article]
    Larry: I think you are blocked by the word "watch." It's no more a watch than the iPhone is an iPod. You need to think outside of the box. I don't disagree with your Yahoo pick, but why not both. Michael

  • BofA's $8.5B mortgage settlement approved [View news story]
    My understanding is this is not the end of the settlements with institutions. Several others still in the wings including AIG.

    When will those be behind BAC, then it's an investment. To many unknowns at this point in time.

  • Bank Of America: Why My 'Shares Will Double' Call May Prove Conservative [View article]
    I was waiting for the final disposition of all fines and penalties relating to the mortgage fiasco i.e., CountryWide. Estimates based on JP Morgans fine put BofA's at somewhere around 20 Billion. If it comes in well below that the stock will go up, if it comes in a lot higher, and it could, then the stock will take it in the shorts. As the largest offender in this scam I would not be surprised to see BofA made an example of, and the fines Headline making. Some of this is already priced in but not a figure like 50 Billion.
