  • Is It Time To Move To The Sidelines? [View article]
    Goldman Sachs is a big Obama administration supporter. If you add politics into this analysis you ask what is the worse thing for the Obama administration. The answer is the economy going into the tank before the 2014 election cycle. That would mean his dream of "transforming America" would be dead. How would he try to prevent this. He would have those that owe him continue to analyze gold negatively. A strong price for gold would compete with the dollar as a safe haven and throw the economy into hyper inflation. I have tracked gold for the past 4 years against the dollar and the Euro. It has never diverged like this. Usually when the dollar declines against other currencies like the Euro gold prices go up. The dollar is trading at about .7398 dollars to 1 Euro. down from a high of .78265 and gold is down $1600 oz in the same period. Call it conspiracy theory, but I don't trust this administration and its governing.

  • Apple Should Not Give In To Icahn [View article]
    Apple needs to do more than iPhone 5Sand 5C. Buying shares back will make the company less vulnerable to wild swings in price and provide real value to investors

  • (Almost) Kudos To You, Mr. Cook [View article]
    While you make this detailed article of why not having a cheaper price fro the 5c is interesting you miss the point. The stock is once again in the tank. It does not matter what argument you make. The perception is that Apple has lost it's edge. Right or wrong that is what is being priced by perception of falling EPS. In the mean time once again investors are given hype about great new innovation that doesn't occur. Enough is enough. I agree with Ican buy back more shares if you cannot move out of a saturated smartphone market than you doomed to be the next Microsoft

  • Apple: Please Quit Your Whining [View article]
    Thank you Bill Maurer. It was predictable when I saw the stock price go up in advance of the launch I thought these same people will build up hopes to take advantage of the rush to buy in then slam Apple immediately after the launch to take advantage by shorting the stock. I for one am tired of those same people with the same agenda doing it every quarter.

  • Apple $700: Don't Get Burned Again [View article]
    You need to read the article by Matthew Frankel dated 18 Aug. "Can Apple get back to $700". You both interpret the same material, but come up with different conclusions.

  • AllThingsD: Next iPhone to be unveiled on Sep. 10 [View news story]
    AAPL will go the route of other innovators that ran out of gas. The smartphone market is saturated with products all with good features and at all price ranges. If AAPL is to survive at it's present level it needs a new market that can be innovated. There are only so many things that a person can and wants to do on a cell phone. A bigger display is not the answer. The bigger display means a bigger phone which becomes too inconvenient to carry uses too much power and cannibalizes the mini iPad market. Where is all these new products promised by Mr. Cook? He cannot last on Steve Jobs legacy for too much longer, Investors want to see growth potential. Not promises.

  • Report: Apple board pressuring Cook over "pace of innovation" [View news story]
    I don't know what rock you live under, but when a high tech stock like Apple drops 35% in value the board should put pressure on the person in charge. This article only reported what was happening.

    It is about time that somebody on Apple's board listened to investors. The company has talked about all sorts of new innovative products but released nothing.

  • Apple: It's Panic Time [View article]
    Can you expalin why Google is selling at over $870 a share with a P/E of 26.63 and EPS of $33.42. It baffles me why anybody would think that is a great investment and not another bubble stock waiting to crash?

  • "It is time to break up Google (GOOG)," writes Richard Sennett of the London School of Economics. "The problem is simple: the company is just too powerful, as are Apple (AAPL) and many other big tech groups." Sennett harks back to when the Supreme Court broke up Standard Oil in 1911, when "an overmighty business was shattered into 33 shards." He also cites the progressives of a century ago, such as Herbery Croly, who believed that successful start-ups would extinguish competition and become monopolies. Breaking them up "would set talent free." [View news story]
    Is the country bankrupt now or is it close to it. $14T in debt and climbing. Out of control social programs that can never be funded. There isn't that much money in the world. So what do socialists do they print worthless paper and cal it money. Is it worth as much as it was 10 years ago NO. The government and the socialists have screwed everybody by giving more and more with no means to pay. There answer is to tax the rich except even if you took all the money from the so called rich you still would not pay off the debt. If you used a little research you would find that we are borrowing money be issuing bonds to pay the interest on bonds we that are already issued.

  • Apple: Short-Term Challenges, Long-Term Optimism [View article]
    I wish Mr. Cook would wake up or leave. He is doing nothing to increase Apple's value. Every so often they will mention revolutionary iTV or some other product that never really materializes. With all the cash they have you would think they could either buy or develop the next evolutionary tech product. Sure they raised the dividend. That was good for a few points on the market price. It is getting to be an old song. Do something to increase revenue and growth or leave.

  • Peter Schiff Has It Totally Backwards - Gold Is Not Going 'To The Moon' [View article]
    I presume you have been tracking the movement of gold in relation to the dollar and interest rates. When interest rates creek up (which they are doing) the Treasuries like the ETF TLT go down and the dollar drops in relation to the EURO. Gold is priced in dollars. It is a simple axiom that if you are buying something with dollars that a worth less than before the item will cost more dollars. This is also true of oil which is priced in dollars. As slowing down the economy it will eventually if the rates get too high. Most home buyers now expect to get rates below 4.0%. As these rates creep up new sales will eventually dry up.

  • Apple's WWDC Preview: Thoughts On Innovation, Market Position, And Observer Psychology [View article]
    Adding Apple Store sales needs to be done as you stated to get an accurate read of smartphone sales. I believe this could be accomplished by determining what phones as being serviced by each wireless provider. Phones bought at the Apple Store eventually need to subscribe to a wireless provider
