  • Apple's Clash: Rising Stock Price Vs. Declining Company Superiority [View article]
    Or when someone posts ill thought out hogwash there will also be negative comments. He is hoping that someone will listen to him and then he can get back in at $500 or less. May be possible, but not because of his strange three strikes post. The earnings report as a strike is absurd. It was easily explained by people waiting for the iphone 4S, and then blown away with the next earning report. That is clear evidence to stretching the facts to try and influence investors. The true intent of his post was to find a way to convince people to sell.

  • Apple's Clash: Rising Stock Price Vs. Declining Company Superiority [View article]
    Sounds like you are trying to justify selling at $500. You lost out on quite a gain by selling so early. Now you are likely afraid you will be on the sideline as Apple moves towards $600 in the near future.

    People have finally started to catch on to what Apple is doing.
    They sell not only devices such as the ipod, iphone, ipad, macbook air, macbook pro, iMac, but they are also selling a huge amount of music, sofware(apps), books, movies, and letting you store it all in one place.

    What they are doing is extraordinary. They are killing such companies as RIMM, Nokia, Sony, MSFT, Best Buy, Circuit City(already dead), Barnes and Noble, Borders, Blockbuster, etc...
    The are also going to be earning a cut from school textbooks being sold all over the world. They are becoming the one stop shop for digital media, and devices. The iTV will also change the way people watch TV all over the world. They are a world wide dominant player that is locking it's customers into a lifelong relationship where the customers will not want to ever leave.

    I would not be sitting on the sidelines now.

    No other manufacturer comes close to the quality product that Apple produces. They are putting the competition out of business. RIMM will be the first to disappear. Apple killed them with great products.

    The 4S was only a disappointment to those with an iphone 4 wanting a reason to upgrade.

    People forget that the iphone 4s was put out to get the 3gs users to switch to the 4S, not for 4 to switch to 4S. Maybe the 5 will be more likely to get some 4S users to switch then the 4S was to the 4 users. Most wait until contracts can be extended anyway and that is usually 18 months to 2 years.

    Happy with my 4S after using the 3gs for 18 months.

    Apple is not longer just about the iphone, but the Iphone is King. You compare Android (how many different phones?) vs. iphone. Windows is not even in the game at this point.

    Nokia is dying like Blackberry. They are dying because of Apple.

    iPad is also kicking butt. Sales will increase drastically over the next years.

    Mac sales increasing.

    Apple TV coming out within the year?

    Oh and Apple also sells Software, Music, Movies, Tv shows, Books, advertising. What company can they even be compared with?

    How well are customers locked into Apple? There is no comparision!! Once with Apple you will never leave.

    Coming dividend at some point? Other new products???

    Apple is WAY undervalued if you take into account the full picture.

    Apple is rocking, and finally be recognized by investors. Do not expect the recent action to stop anytime soon.

  • Reviewing Apple Price Changes Before Significant Events - Part 2 [View article]
    Funny how people can stretch facts regarding Apple.

    Here are some facts for you.

    The workers in China producing Apple products make more money then the average worker in China.

    They also commit suicide much less often then an average Chinese person.

    There are more workers killed in US Factories then in those where Apple products are made in China.

    Apple is helping to improve the quality of life for Chinese people, as well as the rest of the world.

    Virtually every Apple competitor is also having their products built in Asia. I don't think you can even buy a smartphone or tablet that is made in America.

    Apple is a leader, not a follower, but that said no company is perfect. You should not expect Apple to be either.

    It would be interesting to also see afterwards. Then you would know if it would have been good to get in before the news or not.

    What about the five days after the events noted? After people had time to digest what had taken place? It seems to take people a while to figure out what Apple is up to.

    However people may now be catching on that Apple is becoming dominant in so many areas. Mp3, smartphones, Tablet computer, Laptop, desktop computers, Workplace computers, (could be TVs soon), Music, Tv shows, Movies, Software(apps). Apple may well rule the world in a few years. LOL Time will tell.

  • This Time, Let Apple Estimates Be Conservative [View article]
    The point is that if they earn less then the analysts expect the share price should not be affected. The earnings should be compared to prior quarters, and prior years earnings. If they beat expectations, but expenses or something else is not in order then the stock would go down.

    Apple shares are valued at about half of what they should be at the moment. I think a share buy back program, and spilt would get it to where it deserves to be.

  • 4 Of George Soros' Favorite High Growth Stocks [View article]
    One big point that I have not seen mentioned regarding Apple is that for every new Iphone sold to an existing iphone owner, a second person is buying the old iphone. For example I recently purchased an Iphone 4S, and then sold my Iphone 3GS on ebay for close to $275. While the money for the 3GS goes to me, the buyer must activate with an itunes account, creating another Apple customer. These new customers will buy Apps and music, and then in the future also upgrade to a newer Iphone. (last count 80%+ of Iphone users will stay with Apple)

    My theory therefore is that their are way more Iphones being sold then the analysts are actually looking at if you count second hand purchasers. I know the revenue for those phones comes later, but clearly this is a factor for accelerating Apple growth in the future.

    Maybe someone can dig into this idea.
