After digesting Samsung's Q4, IDC thinks the company sold 63.7M smartphones in Q4, +76% Y/Y and good for a 29% share (+650 bps). Apple's 47.8M iPhone sales (+29%) yielded a 21.8% share (-120 bps). Low-end Android juggernaut Huawei became the world's #3 vendor with a 4.9% share (+140 bps). #4 Sony's share rose 60 bps to 4.5%. Nokia and RIM didn't make the top-5. Total smartphone growth is pegged at 36.4% (down from Q3's 45.3%), but total mobile phone growth at just 1.9%. Smartphones made up 45.5% of phone sales. (Strategy Analytics)

    it would be very interesting to see profit numbers for these market shares. I bet AAPL makes more on their 21.8% share than Samsung makes on their 29% share. By a lot.

    It is much easier for Samsung to maintain its profit in smartphone than Apple. How long can Apple keep its profit margin and revenue?

    Mass hysteria isn't manipulation. We are solidly into Orwell's Group Think, drowning in Double Speak. Social conformity and compliance were taught to the last couple generations from an early age by the well-protected teachers looking out for their own interest. Disciplinary use of force to assure compliance got called "a contract" by those sadists.

     

    So just as quickly as Apple is toast according to the universal single opinion of things, it could become an underdog or King again.

    "For the fourth quarter, Samsung's net profit rose to 7.04 trillion won, or $6.6 billion, from 4.01 trillion won a year earlier. In the third quarter, the company posted a record profit of 6.56 trillion won. ....

     

    Samsung's largest business—cellphones and telecom equipment—accounted for 62% of its operating profit in the fourth quarter. Analysts have forecast overall shipments of cellphones at 110 million and smartphones at 60 million in the fourth quarter. Apple said it sold 47.8 million iPhones in the same period. Samsung doesn't release details on the number of phones it sells in its earnings reports.

     

    Samsung's profit margin for cellphones fell to 17.4% in the fourth quarter, down from the 18.8% marked in the previous quarter. And the pace of cellphone revenue growth continued to slide, as it has through the year. In the latest quarter, cellphone year-on-year revenue growth was 58%, down from 82% in the third quarter. "

     

    http://on.wsj.com/10UaK0o

     

    ======================...

     

    62% of $6.6B = ~$4B [cellphones and telecom equipment]

     

    Margins: 17.4% on cellphones

     

    Can you imagine what would happen to AAPL if they reported 17% margins?

     

    Apple reportes three times the profit of Samsung's cellphone telecom equipment business and 38.4% margins and Apple gets hammered.

    @Doyle True about AAPL's profits but markets 6-9m forward looking not backward and very worried about Asian ODMs like China Wireless and their CoolPad at $100. It's not just AAPL but all ODMs that are going to be fighting for increased unit numbers while ASP is falling cery fast like PCs. AAPL"s a buy for now at $500-450 less $146 PS in cash for net of $300-350. AAPL should spend $25b and buy Nokia and become agnostic about brands and sell WP also and get camera, maps and patents to boot. Google and Microsoft would have a fit!

    Apple make roughly 3 times more actual profit on phones, than Samsung do on their phones even though Samsung sell more actual units.

     

    It is estimated Apple make 60-55% of the all the profits made in smartphone sales worldwide.

     

    If Apple release a lower cost smartphone it is clear Samsung will face some serious headwinds as Samsung relies on price to sell their products. Survey after survey has shown consumers want an iPhone with the only barrier being price. After all $800 for a phone is not cheap.

    Hey belltvguy,

     

    I feel your pain & like you have a lot of apple shares. No one can say how long it will take to restore & no one can know what unforeseen problem might occur that could suddenly cause another drop. You shouldn't look back with remorse, but rather ask what you can learn from this that will help you be a better trader. At some point apple has to become a value & people will start driving it back up. I do think apple is easily worth 550-610, and maybe after a floor is established you can buy back in & maintain some good stop losses to protect your gains. Any company that brings in 54 billion in 3 months & is profiting at 1 billion a week is a company worth owning. So I think you did the right thing, but hopefully this crisis will be turned into an opportunity if you can buy back in at 400 or less.

    I assume you are relatively close to retirement. In any case, $1.3M is a good chunk of money. If you pull 5% a year, that is $65k a year, which will last for 20 years. You should contact a reputable financial advisor. .A competent advisor can make your money last much longer safely.

     

    Bottom line, consider yourself lucky, you got and have very nice retirement nest egg, do not risk it anymore.

    You can put the $1.3 million in a bank CD. At 3% annual interest on a 5 year CD, your money will grow steadily and the only risk is a bank default. Another option, buy preferred shares or bonds. With bonds, as long as you hold till maturity and that the bond issuer doesn't default, you are guaranteed your money back plus interest (coupon rate). Preferred shares are usually less volatile than common shares are usually give a dividend around 7%.

    About leaving heirs money, in my personal opinion, my parents didn't help me after college (yes, they helped pay my food and books), so why should I leave anything for my kids? I could graduate debt free, which was more than enough. Hopefully, I can help them also graduate debt free. After that, you're on you're own. Kids need to learn to make their own future.

    I think retirement money should be looked at carefully. You had a big stake in Apple, and if you made money, no one can fault you. I wish we could he from the bull guru Andy Zaky. It does feel very eerie that everyone got this wrong. What happened to $800 by the end of January, $1000 by the Fall. All I can think is that there is so much bearish sentiment towards Apple we are at a bottom.

    I agree AAPL has fallen quite a bit, but it is rightly so. Market valuation is based on future growth estimates, not today's earnings. Apple growth is decelerating, and innovation has all but stopped after the iPhone, itunes and ipad. And no Steve Jobs unfortunately. It seems that investors perceive the company as a cash cow, not a leading innovator anymore, and are betting on the future, not the present.

    Show us a co. which has a better growth than Apple.
    35% (after 14 weeks adjustment) Revenue growth is NO GROWTH in your opinion.
    8% (after 14 weeks adjustment) EPS growth is also a NO GROWTH in your opinion.

     

    Perhaps Netflix $700K benefit (roughly $0.01 EPS) is more growth to you.
    Compare Apple's growth to Google, Microsoft, Samsung, etc. You will realize that Apple has almost the best top line growth $ the highest bottom line growth on yearly base.

     

    A 40% growth is not sustainable. The market size & it's growth is the limit. Apple's market size is limited to the size of the high end of the smartphone market. In US Apple has more than 51% of the total smartphone market. This means more than 80% of the high end market. It's growth shall be compared to the growth of the segment of the market.

     

    WS makes money on bullish & bearish sentiments & this changes all the time without any fundamental reason just momentum.

    No disrespect, but you can't predict the future. You have no idea what Apple is going to do next. This is the same crap the analysts, Doug "Gecko" Kass, and the muppet head media have been serving up to us to drive the stock down and get retail investors out. Does anyone here doubt that Apple won't get a deal done with China Telecom this year? Of course they will. What will that do to the stock? And, considering how incestuous and low the financial and banking community is, you don't think the hedges aren't aware that Apple is preparing for a major stock split and move out of the Nasdaq to mitigate volatility and short selling? Why do you think they brought in the new financial guy, because Oppenheimer needs an assistant? Finally, I've worked with Apple in the past and met Jobs. He was about hiring smart people and building a culture of innovation. He started that in earnest on his return in 1995. Many of those core innovators are still there, including Joni Ives. Cook is a lousy communicator, I'll grant that. But this ongoing mantra that is continually spewed in forums about Apple being done after the greatest quarter of revenue and profit generation in corporate history is mind blowing. Just what Kass and company want us to believe. Unfortunately, many, too many, have taken their bait hook, line and sinker.

    spoken by someone with no knowledge of chips or product enginnering. Whay do you consider innovation, a Phablet? A large plastic phone? NFC, which is something any compay can add to their phone? maybe it's the best selling Samsung phone worldwide, the 3-inch Galaxy Y?

     

    rate of growth is of course decelerating, it can't grow 100% forever.

     

    Apple has a history of new prodyct launches every 3-6 years, it has only been barely 3 since iPad.

     

    please stop parroting stuff you heard elsewheer that likely started in Samsung's marketing room. Take a look at how the iPhone is made (hint, they don't glue a piece of glass onto plastic)

    Hey rperson, I hope everything you think will happen comes true. No disrespect here, but I don't trade based on "what ifs's," I think we can only trade on the givens. Apple, IMO, had great growth & revenue this part quarter & maybe macs missed because of constraints or because tablets are replacing PC's. But I don't think anyone can say that china mobile or an itv will happen soon. We just don't know. I would like to know more if as you say "apple is preparing a major stock split & it's moving off the Nasdaq," just how you know that for sure when there's been absolutely no indications from the company of such moves? It's one thing to know, another to pretend like you do. However, if you ave facts to back that up, I'd love to see them.

    I agree with many of your points. Yes, compared to competitors Apple has the highest past and estimated future earnings growth, but as you said there is a limit to growth with one, or few products, even with a unified platform.

     

    Few years back I was discussing with friends what would happen when more than 50% of the US market is on the i- platform, particularly with an iPhone, and I think it is realistic to expect consumers in this market would desire product variety and choices for personalization. Can we expect to have 70-80% of the smartphone market on one platform? Do we even want that?

     

    This just means slower growth in the US, and a need to look for new high growth markets, geographical or product-wise. And the company may very well deliver on this, as it had in the past. WS has very high expectations from AAPL as a leading tech innovator and is waiting for the next big growth thing that will change the world, as the iPhone did. Not here yet.

    I agree, and apologize if sounded too sharp. You are bringing valid points and possible strategic moves that could positively affect the stock price. The company may also choose to compete in the lower end market in China and elsewhere, where its products penetration is now low, but margins would be too. What I think investors are missing at this moment though is exactly the perception of Apple leading the innovation in tech, bringing big new ideas and trying new products.

I would check the price every few hours while I performed my work (IT related) The fact that I was trading whilst in an emotional state and not from an intellectual vantage, started to concern me. Personally I hope that I have learned something from this such as not to put "All of my Apples in One Basket" Ouch. By in and sell in tranches....Mackes more sense.

    IMHO in one year from now, Apple will launch the Ipad mini 2 (no need for the retina display because of margins), The Ipad 5, The Iphone5S (may be in different colors), May be the low price Iphone, may be the large screen Iphone, may be ITV, may be THE NEXT TOTALLY NEW IDEVICE.
    In one years from now, the deal with China mobile may also be inked.
    In one years from now, the dividend may be doubled or the share buyback may be increased to a more significant level.

     

    Some body knows what will do Netflix, Google, MS, etc. in one year from now & what new product will they bring to the market or what new markets will they reach ?

    As expected this is completely being misreported by the media, which paints the impression that Samsung sold so many more high end phones than apple. Only 18m galaxy S3 sold last quarter.

     

    Most of samsungs smartphones are the "Galaxy Y" a three inch screened very basic phone, and others even more basic feature phone type models popular in India and China for their cheapness. Not knocking Samsung for selling phones of course but the journalists reporting on this are doing a poor job

     

    Samsungs marketing department must be cheering because the face of samsungs smartphones is the expensive Galaxy
    s3 and Note 2, which in fact make up a distinct numerical niche of their overall sales( kind of like GM making the Corvette the face Chevy).

     

    I don't see any article using a photo of the much more popular Galaxy Y phones. Google images of that and you will see why Samsung doesn't want that.

    I think the problem with (AAPL) now is that many people are new to (AAPL). If you don't know how to use it, you don't like it. I love my iPhone and iPad and see the Mac as superior to the PC. But for some functions I prefer a PC. The iPhone is not perfect, but it is great. Most apps work well, but some suck. Had to wait for the bus for 30 minutes in 26 degree weather. If it wasn't for the bus app, I would have waited outside the entire time. But since I could see where the bus was on the my iPhone, I could go inside and come back out just before it got there.

     

    Some people are probably annoyed by the high cost of owning a smartphone. $40 a month for me, but that is because I share plans with my family. But is the price for other smartphones any better?

     

    The iPhone costs $499-$899 depending on the amount of memory you want and the data plan. Yes, Galaxy is cheaper, but it is all preference. I don't like how the Galaxy looks. And it is too thin for me. Plus, I don't want a bigger phone. Isn't the purpose of a phone to call from one place to another, not to watch movies or play games

    Galaxy phones are like 1950s sports cars, good performance when they're not in the shop.

     

    they have impressive specs, but poor build quality leading to frequent freezes and other nits. this is from freinds who have them, and quick search on internet.

    if "Isn't the purpose of a phone to call from one place to another, not to watch movies or play games ", then why are you buying iPhone?

     

    A feature phone is good enough for you.....

     

    you are talking nonsense.

    "why are you buying iPhone?"

     

    I'm not. I just got an iPhone because it would be cheaper if we shared the plan then got an individual won. And the phone itself was free for me.

    I sometimes think (AAPL) is like the New England Patriots. The Patriots have surged since 2003, just like (AAPL). Everybody hates a dominant team or company. I think the (AAPL) haters are just jealous

    I am still confident that Apple is committed to building the best products on the planet. I for one, am happy about this. The problem with that strategy (targeting a higher end with functional simplicity and real quality) has temporarily broken down because some Korean washing machine manufacturer figured out how to copy them and flooded the market with their cheap plastic crap. People love cheap plastic crap, but thats all they have...cheap plastic crap.

     

    I just hope Apple doesn't begin reverting back to chasing this tornado with dozens of new models with cutesy little names, lighter, thinner, bigger, smaller, faster, whatever..... it actually feels like Coca Cola when somebody thought it would be good idea to change the recipe. We all know how that turned out. In many ways, the iPhone 4S is exactly analogous to the original Coke - it is, and has been, somehow amazingly and simply perfect for what it is.

     

    As for innovation - this is THE MOST innovative company in the world...does anyone seriously believe they have just stopped doing what they do best? Many prototypes are in place now. SIRI and iTunes Genius to name two, for example will provide an eventual replacement for iOS based upon voice. Many more dynamic apps that "learn" from us will emerge from this new framework with new relationships for our devices. In this context, iTV is actually fairly minor, as it is nothing more than a large iPad, but it will benefit nicely.

    Retired value investor. My portfolio is self managed after having asset managers review it over the years. I find that if you stay the course you will have time to relax.
