Apple (AAPL) roundup: 1) HTC, which has a relatively weak patent hand, says it has no plans to settle with Apple following the Samsung verdict. The fact Apple doesn't seem interested in seriously negotiating with Android OEMs could be a reason why. 2) Delta Air Lines (DAL) plans to deploy 4,500 iPads at its 3 airport hubs to provide information and food/beverage services to travelers. 3) Apple is reportedly planning an AirPlay upgrade that will allow music to be streamed to speakers via Bluetooth instead of Wi-Fi.

  • The sum of all the noise is that AAPL is the Big Gorilla on the block and the momentum is moving in their favor. All the negative commentary is from shorts and contrarian advisors who have gotten behind the curve.

  • I have been around the block in investing, from Scudder to T Rowe Price and am now a cool handed 85-year old Luke. Treasury yields should tell you that common stocks are the place to be. AAPL is the preferred choice in that spectrum.

  • "Old age and treachery will always overcome youth and enthusiasm"--a quote I must increasingly live by as I approach "Prime Time". And Apple's been my ticket to ride this time around--since 2005.

     

    I was a whole lot dumber/younger when I sold APPL in 1997, 2000, and 2001. Had to crawl back in at a far higher level in 2005/6. Have a tiny piece left that I bought in 2000...it's up 5340%.

     

    And I do see a swirl of "SA evildoers" constantly scheming to beat the stock down--so that they can get in! Sadly, they don't get that the stock is already beat down relative to an Amazon. Together, these are the New World.

     

    Catch new about Amazon AWS--see the future. And Apple is the other half. With these two tools--you are in business world-wide in a heartbeat.

  • Why Apple and not Android? Simple in my book. Originator - Inovator vs. copycats. Apple has a proven record of consistent design and implementation superiority. That's worth money in any business. Anything less is a toy. As for the price... Ever heard the phrase " what the market will bear"? That's what it's all about once you cover costs. Once someone comes up with a better product overall, including the support, OS, and apps, they'll knock Apple off its perch. Don't hold your breath shorties.

  • All I see is just another reason for Delta to raise prices.
