  • Apple Beats But Treated As Second Class  [View article]
    Bill, excellent analysis. Your statement about Apple is being treated unfairly is exactly right and the comparison against recent result from Google shows this cut and clear.
    But this unfair treatment is not new and I wonder why?
    I still fail to find a valid reason why a Co like Apple with one of the most solid balance sheet in the world, conservative management and clearly focused in producing the best quality products show such disconnection with its stock value.

  • Apple Stays Rotten  [View article]
    Wow! and why not you includes the 4S ongoing sales of this year as well?
    What's deal is to measure the sales of new models in the launch weekend. Happens to be that this year Apple decided to released two new models instead of one. In fact, according to the sales ratio between 5S and 5C(3.4 to 1), if Apple would have released only the 5S, the number would have been greater than 9 mm.
    Including sales of older models are a quiet bizarre way of not wanting to accept the reality of a blowout number launch.

  • Apple pares early gains as SocGen cuts shares to Hold  [View news story]
    Davy, You are not confused and you are absolutely right in your statements.
    Who is confused is Perkins. This is an absolute lack of competence! All these bunch of so called "Analysts" would have a good career in a Circus (but not in Cirque du Soleil)...

    Quote from Mr. Trainer article:
    "Apple can no longer justify premium pricing on its products, as evidenced by its declining market share"

    Did you learn how much Iphones Apple sold on weekend?

    You could not pick any worst day to write this article....
    I believe you could have a good career in a Circus (but not in Cirque Du Soleil)...

  • Apple's New 64-Bit ARM A7 Chip Is Absolutely Amazing  [View article]
    Mr. Papa San,
    With all due respect, I just want to tell you that for years, I used to own Windows PC and android phones. A few years ago, I started to experience a quality degradation specially on PC's. Mid Last year, I bought an Apple Mac Book Pro, I discovered what an efficient and user friendly is. Very intuitive. Just in less than 10 seconds is up when I turned on and so far, I failed to find something to complaint. Fastest PC I have ever. Same experience with my Iphone 4S which I bought a year ago and without a doubt it is the best smartphone I have ever. The new generation 5C and 5s are by far better in everything.
    Nice advise: Stop by the Apple Store when you go to supermarket and spend just a few minutes of your precious time taking a look of the Mac Air or Mac Pro there. Also take a look about the iPhones. I am sure, you will be appreciate this advise.

  • Apple's (AAPL -0.5%) iPad shipments are expected to drop to just 10-12M units in Q3 from 14.6M in Q2 (and 19,5M in Q1), according to Digitimes, citing upstream supply chain sources. In addition to seasonal issues, there's market share, and the iPad's is estimated to have dropped to 30-35% in Q2 vs. about 40% in Q1.  [View news story]

    Regarding Ipad estimates, I believe that the "education quarter" factor will be key in supporting sales during June quarter.

  • Apple Shares Are In The Reign Of Uncertainty  [View article]
    Mr. Blair,
    I fail to understand your statement about Apple does not get it into the ecosystem? I believe you are very wrong informed. Apple is who invented the ecosystem concept, it is who has the best ecosystem in the whole industry. In fact, its global business strategy is based on that. Currently, it has 575 million credit card accounts in its ecosystem. I dare you to tell me which Company is even close to that figure. And you said Microsoft Blackberry got it ?? Got it what?? Take the time to investigate more seriously the real status of these two Co. If you are short on Apple based on these facts, you are very wrong..

  • Apple's Magic Is Broken  [View article]
    --Samsung's Galaxy S 4 to hit 10 million in sales next week, says CEO JK Shin". 10 million within 1 month, 5 million in the first weekend, it's nearly matching the iPhone 5 ... -
    Mr Santos,
    I really don't get your math. 10 Million GS4 in 4 weeks its nearly match 5 Million Iphone in 3 days??? In which planet ? How an average of 333,333 units GS4/day "its nearly match" 1,666,667 units Iphone /day??
    On top, please take the time to pay a closer read and you will see that Samsung is talking about sales to carriers, not end users. Not quite the same thing.
    One more thing, it is well known how Samsung cheats and manipulates their figures. So, any info from them must be taken with a ton of salt. Nobody knows what their real sales are and your whole article is supported on info coming from Samsung...
    Always remember that lack of ethics is one of Samsung "values"

  • More Tepper: Turning to individual ideas, he says Citigroup (C) has become one of his biggest positions. On Apple (AAPL): If the company doesn't have something "revolutionary" coming, it better do something "evolutionary" - bigger screen, cheap iPhone. If we don't see anything by September, then it's "Houston we got a problem," and Tepper hopes he's quicker on the sell button than everybody else.  [View news story]
    Who is Tepper???

  • Some Apple (AAPL) commentary: 1) Horace Dediu estimates the iPhone and iPad's component costs respectively rose 29% and 65% Y/Y in FQ2, well above rev. growth of 3% and 40%. This, along with a mix shift towards iPads, is mostly responsible for Apple's gross margin drop (rather than price pressure). 2) Tero Kuittinen sees similarities between 2013 Apple and 2007 Nokia. "The strongest parallel is in the weird way both companies started fighting the consumer preference for larger displays … and then dug in as margins began eroding rapidly." Tim Cook may have just hinted a bigger iPhone will eventually arrive. But how long will it take? (yesterday[View news story]

    Yes Samsung makes the majority of its components but nobody knows its real unit sales even less its real costs. They never have revealed their real true numbers. Why it will be ?

  • Tim Cook: The (Negative) $250,000,000,000 Man  [View article]
    Bill. I congratulate you for a fair and balanced article. I coincide with your statements 100%. I just would add that being a primary duty of the management any public Company to preserve stockholder value, management inaction can not be justified in front of this disproportionate lost of value. Since January, with the stock already broke, they are seated on a huge pile of 137 BILLION $, enough to fast put back on track Apple stock with some of top hits mentioned above and so far, they did deliver nothing within the most absolute silence. In my book, this is negligence but responsibility falls not only on Tim Cook but on the whole BOD.
