  • iPhone Surging, iPad Collapsing - Apple May Be Near Its Peak [View article]
    The higher AAPL goes above a pre-split $800 level the higher the chance Blair will be proved right.

    When AAPL crossed $700 the first time, there seemed to be no real barriers to its continued rise. A mix of (seemingly) marginal numbers and a whole lot of FUD helped drive the stock to ridiculous lows.

    The only point here is that if it happened before, it could happen again. The only thing we can be sure of is that if it does, it won't be because of any amazing prescience on Blair's part. As the saying goes, a broken clock is still right twice a day.

  • Strategy Analytics Q3 2014 Smartphone Shipments: Android Up Top; iOS Stagnates [View article]
    "Tech is about the future, not the past, and right now Apple is not improving their tech enough to keep up. "

    Keep up with who, exactly? The ongoing success of Apple indicates that your conclusion is flawed.

  • HomeAway -15.6% AH on soft Q4 guidance [View news story]
    This year the Homeaway group of companies decided to start blocking email addresses in email correspondence between owners and potential guests.

    This was done under the guise of 'protecting' both groups, but I think it's an effort to force traffic to their portal... in any event, it's annoying as hell and has made me less likely to renew with them.

    Not saying that's a reason for the poor results, but the approach they took in this case indicates they do not have the best business sense.

    "ruh-roh the apple kids are upset about the facts again?"

    Apple kids that happen to be AAPL holders are in fact quite happy about the facts.

    Android kids, probably not so much. If you don't get it, see my first post relating to profit vs. market share.

    You know what 84% of $0 is?

    I'll give you a hint: it's a lot less than 12% of a bajillion dollars.

    When you find a bank that lets you buy and sell 'market share' let me know, until then I'll stick with the company that actually makes money.

  • Report: New bond sale for Apple planned [View news story]
    Can anybody explain why they would do an offering in Euros? Presumably a large portion of their overseas cash is in Europe and therefore already Euro denominated?

  • Why Apple Could Have Upside To $136 Per Share [View article]
    "While I'm not sure that is a quantitative measurement, I am always impressed with the traffic in/out of the stores."

    Not everything can be quantified... there's always the "smell test". One of the reasons I kept buying AAPL all the way down to the low $400's was that every time I went into their stores they were jammed with people. People buying stuff.

    I never bought COST because even when it was in the 90's (2 years ago) it was still 'expensive' based on some basic metrics. But every time I went there (usually weekly) the place was always busy. In hindsight it was a poor decision. Of course now I'm still not buying it because it still seems expensive. But hey, I never said I was a clever fellow...

    Not everything can - or should be - quantifiable.

  • Titans Clash: MCX Vs. Apple Pay [View article]
    "Guys, this is the internet age. It doesn't take much to confirm MB's background."

    Based on the fact that Rexall Canada appears to have been founded in 1904, I'm going to guess that Pharmx Rexall (Ontario) and Rexall Canada aren't the same thing.

    For a normal person posting here this probably wouldn't be an issue, but when one holds one's self (oneself?) out to be an authority on any number of subjects then claiming to have founded a nationally recognized company will definitely draw some attention.

  • Titans Clash: MCX Vs. Apple Pay [View article]
    " I founded the Rexall drug store chain in Canada and I can tell you the credit card expenses were material."

    I'm sure there's an explanation, and I'd love to hear it, so I'll ask:

    According to the Rexall website (http://www.rexall.ca):

    "Rexall in Canada was established in 1904 in the early days of the United Drug Company and quickly established itself as an innovator in retail pharmacy."

    I'm guessing you're not more than 110 years old, but I'd be happy - and quite amazed - to admit I was wrong.

  • Drug retailers cut out Apple Pay [View news story]
    "Apple has destroyed music industry, now they want to destroy payments system, hmmm "

    Yes, they totally destroyed the music system by making music easily accessible for consumers and making it easy for artists to get paid.

    Oh, the humanity.

    Maybe you'd be happier to see a BitTorrent or Kazaa mobile payment solution?

  • Drug retailers cut out Apple Pay [View news story]
    When it comes to a digital wallet solution, I'd rather back a technology company like Apple than the IT department at a drugstore chain.

    As an extension, will these retail outlets also ban credit cards once their system is up and running? Or just competing digital payment systems?

  • EU: Apple Tax Deals Granted By Ireland Broke State Rules [View article]
    I'm still curious about your pedigree as an investment advisor. You very clearly make recommendations but I don't think I've ever seen anything that would make anybody take you seriously.

    You have made multiple erroneous claims and assumptions, yet you carry on as if they never happened and each day is a clean slate.

    You are very obviously free to post here as often as you want (twice today on AAPL alone!), but it would be great to understand what exactly is behind the "Shock Exchange" moniker when you make proclamations.

    Actually, that last bit was a lie - I know exactly what's behind it, but it would still be great to hear you try to defend it.

  • European Commission Tax Probe Could Cost Apple Billions [View article]
    "^ Would you let this person manage your money?"

    No, but to be honest it has less to do with any juvenile comments, and more to do with the fact that s/he insists on referring to him/herself in the 3rd person...

  • European Commission Tax Probe Could Cost Apple Billions [View article]
    I think you should point out the worst case scenario - that the probe could cost Apple TRILLIONS. I mean, in theory, it COULD, right?

    Just to clarify one thing for you - the EU is going to publish the REASONS for their investigation tomorrow. Not results. Big difference.

    Finally, read this piece on Forbes about the reality of the situation, then come back and report.

  • European Commission to accuse Apple over illegal Irish tax deals [View news story]
    Looks like SA editors are too busy approving Michael Blair smear articles to do any proper fact checking?

    I keep expecting SA to post a "Market Current" saying that Apple is falsifying iphone sales numbers, then linking to Blair's article as a source.
