  • Apple's High Margins Are Out Of Sync With Reality [View article]
    Yes, you sell the sizzle, the pizzaz, and in the case of Apple the eco-system and the quality. Slice and dice all the numbers you want, but the fact is this company keeps coming up with innovation making products that are high quality that people will pay a premium for. Wal-Mart is all about prices. Apple is not. It is unique. The market constantly undervalues this company. That will change.

  • BlackBerry Is Worth A Look, Especially If You Believe In The Power Of Software [View article]
    Apple is undervalued based on what it makes in revenue and Amazon is wildly overvalued based on its revenue. What is there to not understand. One can control one`s emotions but a market of buyers and sellers who often can not seems fairly obvious. For a guy who had no idea what to say you did anyway.

  • BlackBerry Is Worth A Look, Especially If You Believe In The Power Of Software [View article]
    So why do those metrics work for Blackberry but not Apple? One makes gobs of cash, zillions of phones and the other doesn´t. Amazon with minuscule profit is at a 9 zillion PE. The market makes sense according to you based on those indicators, but it makes no sense with Apple or Amazon. Greed and fear. Controlling yours is possible. Controlling a mob full of one or the other is not.

    You´ve been pounding that kettle for months nay years. Even a blind hog finds an acorn in the forest occasionally.

  • Apple Has Become A Trading Stock [View article]
    You are exactly correct in you analysis. Over the last 6 months it has been obvious the least critical article, in this case the Credit Suisse supply chain one, causes a collapse. Then along comes favorable info and up it goes. It is like a yo-yo. But the bottom line is it is not a holder. It is a trader. It s also a one-trick pony, and I have had iPads, am typing on a 4 year old MacBook Air which is great and would never use anything else. But…4 years. It will go another 4 years. Apple is a great company. But the stock is not so great unless one takes advantage of what you have written. Good article.

  • The Road Is Clear As Far As The Eye Can See - Short General Motors Co. [View article]
    Yeau, Detroit was real swift in the 60s and into the 70s and then the Germans and the Asians ate their lunch. The one rule of life is change never abates, randomness, pure luck, is mistaken for skill, and Ford and Chevy scoffed at first the VW then the Japanese. How did that work out. Now you scoff at Silicon valley.

  • How Microsoft Trumped Apple And Why It Will Continue To Do So [View article]
    Ayy…MS is at about 3% of the phone market. The rest is lines of code. Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don`t. Apple makes more money than a politician.

  • Apple: The Music Will Stop Eventually [View article]
    You say tomato. I say tomahhto. The position of the writer is a viewpoint, and his point has some validity. The iPhone is 66% of Apple´s income. I have had 3 or 4 and have one now, but I also have a Windows phone and bought a Passport. All three are really good phones, but it seems fair to say that the competition will not abate and while China and India may keep the band playing sooner or later the music will soften. It may be way down the road. But if Cook is seriously looking at cars as the next genie then even he is doing so because the knows that nothing lasts forever, except of course death, taxes, and the Kardashians. So, Icahn may be right and all the others on the sky is the limit. It certainly seems to be for Amazon and Alphabet, funny name that. But Apple needs something more down the road. In any case, the investment community continues to treat it like a bastard child in valuation. It is definitely worth more. Why it does not get it is a conundrum.

    That is insanity buttressed by rank stupidity and surrounded by an aura of greed.

  • Microsoft Is Copying Apple's Strategy, And It Will Work [View article]
    Yeau but it still has that awful OS. Apple has always been easier to use with an integrated ecosystem. MS has been software and nothing but. The phone OS is however frankly a good one. But too much competition, a late entry, and Apple as is obvious has the monopoly. It invented the smart phone. It will not be caught by MS. Insofar as the MS OS it has been buggy at times, horrible at other times, and adequate mostly. Apple just invented a better one. For that reason and all the rest it sits on top and will stay there.

  • 7 Quality U.S. Stocks That Can Be Purchased At A Discount Right Now [View article]
    Would that wrong on the part of Bernie be getting Iraq wrong? You folks like the proctors on this site have a lot of knowledge about investing in stocks. But that is it. Stick to what you know because you know nothing about politics. Bernie details what he will do and where he gets the money. Hedge fund managers pay 15%. Romney paid an effective 14%. Really the entire tax code is inequitable and the reason is money in politics. And that comment isn´t about politics per se. It is about voodoo economics currently in vogue. And I AM a Bernie supporter along with a heck of a lot of others.

  • Use The Biotech Selloff To Buy Gilead [View article]
    The guy may be stellar on GILD. And I think he is right. Owning AAPL and GILD right now is difficult even though AAPL is blazing ahead. Bizarre. But on politics he knows nothing. Hillary is the odds on favorite. But the odds can always change.
