  • Apple Demographic Trends Confirm A Bullish Year [View article]
    Consider myself a typical baby boomer. Have migrated from DOS to Windows to iOS. Have migrated from Atari to desktop to laptop to tablet and recently to smart phones. Do not marginalize the spending power or evolution of the older crowd. It may take us longer to adopt new technology but once we do we are loyal. My point, like Cathy Bates in Fried Green Tomatoes, I have more insurance and money and am willing to spend it on products that meet or exceed my requirements. Apple products are intuitive, have more apps and the internet crooks have a difficult time loading viruses in my Apple devices.

  • Will Beyonce And Dre Come To Apple's Aid? [View article]
    I've read the contributors get paid by number of clicks on Seeking Alpha. I'm guessing article that has AAPL in it gets more clicks?

  • Apple's Beats Deal Sparks Rumors Of Sirius Acquisition [View article]
    Why would Apple want Sirius? Sirius is doing the death rattle. The product is obsolete.

    Obviously a lot of work went into this article. The conclusion may be right it may be wrong not enough knowns or facts to substantiate the conclusion.

  • Apple: Examining The Dividend Disappointment [View article]
    Apple's greatest flaw is it's success. If Apple had the same product standards, revenue or profit margin of any of the companies it is compared, to the world of wanna bees would be singing Cook's praises. It's difficult to be perceived as that damn good.

    Where were all the whiners when Icahn wanted to do the "financial engineering"?

  • Cook Does Icahn's Dirty Work At Apple [View article]
    George ACS or Tm Cook and Carl Icahn? Best to stick with the money rather than the Want Ta Bees.

  • Apple Faces A Problem And Increasing Prices Will Make It Worse [View article]
    Will carriers pay more for a device where the customer historically uses more data? My guess is yes. ATT, Verizon, T-Mobile, etc. Are in the business of selling data. As long as the non iphone devices sell less data the carriers in affluent markets will give into Apple's demands. China and India may be a different story, but they will get the generation 5(s) at a discount after the 6 is released.

  • Apple Is Significantly Undervalued - Shares Are Worth North Of $650 [View article]
    To start I'm long AAPL. My 2001 Miata with 60k miles, new tires paid $1,200, new exhaust paid $400, new top paid $700, new brakes paid $200, new paint paid $2,000 is worth $8,000 to me but buyers are only willing to pay $4,000. Unfortunately, my AAPL will only generate a transaction price that someone is willing to pay and Friday that was $532. Valuation justifications are futile exercises. The value of anything and everything is based on buyer's and seller's emotions. My AAPL is emotionally worth $592 to me but I haven't found a buyer that agrees at this point.

  • Apple's Q2 Results Are Likely To Disappoint [View article]
    At the end other day, I'd rather sell 10 widgets making $1000 profit than 100 widgets making $500 profit. Selling the most should not be the goal of any business. Read my lips, "It's profit stupid"

  • Microsoft Office For iPad Is A Boon For Apple [View article]
    Can only speak for myself. Owned an iPad. Bought a Surface because I could not get Office for the IPad. Will not need to replace the Surface with another Surface. Will be able to use the iPads for business and pleasure going forward.

  • Apple: Very Strong Demand For Mac Pro 2014 [View article]
    It's been many years since ECON 101 or 202 for that matter, but to the best of my recollection when demand is greater than supply the price/value goes up up up. Don't see how selling more than you can produce at the Apple premium is bad for AAPL? Is Samsung going to step in and steal the Mac customers? Won't people, amateur analysts, put your name in print more and novices start to believe the product must be great?

  • Apple: Dividend Increase Coming Soon [View article]
    Look for a 10% increase in the dividend. Cook was raised by depression era parents, keep the cash for a rainy day. Like to see AAPL buy Netflix with 26 billion of the cash reserve.

  • Apple's Low Valuation Combined With Higher Volatility Risk - A Lethal Mix [View article]
    Fair value of AAPL is the price I'm willing to sell and you are willing to buy. Apple is currently traded on emotions and rumors not fundamentals or multiples.
