  • Apple Approaching Fundamental And Technical Harmony [View article]
    A close above 570 today would be big technically;especially in this market.When growth is scarce seek out growth stocks;when growth is abundant(now)look for value(AAPL).

    Brian,Time marches on.I also have an interest in BJJ.I was lucky enough to have a sixth dan college professor (Sachio Ashida)at the University of Michigan who operated a judo club at the school.That was 1971.Enough personal stuff and back to business.I'm on pins and needles about Wednesday.The faithful need a break.It was tough sitting on dead money along with my clients when the market roared last year.But that's why you don't put all of your money in one stock.Happy Easter, JUDOKA

    Have you ever met or talked with Tim Cook.If you own AAPL go to the annual meeting.Cupertino California is on the map,and most airlines have flights to the city.Also,the company has a shareholder relations department.It may make you feel better to vent.If none of this works for you,sell the stock.

  • A Sneak Peek At Apple's Earnings [View article]
    Quoth.Very nice article.The problem is that for the last 6 months everything about AAPL has been rumor.They do not tend to hype their own stock(very commendable),but if there is light under the bushel basket they need to keep from hiding it.I am LONG AAPLin a big way and have been for @ two years,but even my patience is getting tried.Need positive news on dividend and buyback,but also at least a hint at what they have for the future.Bearing all helps your competition prepare,but the total silent treatment has gotten old.Again,nice article.

    Brian,Good article,and for the most part not beating the drum.When a "growth"stock turns to "value"it can take extreme patience to gut out the situation.Cash will never be repatriated with the current attitude toward "business".New products will need to be revolutionary;something out of left field that no one forsees at this time.Meantime,enjoy the dividend increase and enhanced buyback which I believe will come.Apple could replace the cash used for these items in a year or two.They stiil have cash for a meaningful acquisition.They have been very careful in this area;unlike GOOG which has made more than one big losing buy.

  • Apple: The Case Against A Dividend Increase [View article]
    Apple has plenty in reserve.The key is innovation.INTC and CSCO make products that have become commoditized.Apple has been successful at innovation.Some of the products have and will be commoditized,but the innovation is still there.

  • Apple: The Case Against A Dividend Increase [View article]
    Point well taken,but there will be a dividend increase as well as a buyback.Please note that even with the current buyback and the current dividend that cash on hand has still grown.Apple has been wise in not making senseless acquisitions(ala GOOG)but the cash available can sustain the return to shareholders as well as possible acquisitions.By the way,concerning borrowing to finance buybacks,this ability to borrow has not been crippled.Rates are not much if any higher than when AAPL borrowed to finance the buyback.I am in the market every day buying taxable as well as tax free bonds,and yields are not much(or any)higher than when AAPL started to borrow.
