  • Only 3 weeks after falling on an earnings miss, Apple (AAPL +1.1%) is trading near its highs. Today's gains come with the help of Jefferies' coverage launch, and in spite of a report China Unicom (CHU) is thinking about ending iPhone subsidies. This isn't as big of a deal in China, where a large chunk of iPhone purchases are unsubsidized, as it is in the U.S., but could still have some impact on sales. The report follows one earlier this month claiming Unicom is thinking of slashing low-end Android subsidies. [View news story]
    Godda love the hedge funds. Apple reaches All time high today and then they come out with China Unicom story to try to curb there losses. What a joke

  • My China Syndrome With Apple [View article]
    Thanks for your update. I really don think the iPhone is slowing down in the US per say. Every Q2 iPhone sales have been lower than Q1. Q1 is the holiday quarter so more iPhones will be sold. The Q2 drop in US iPhone sales is normal. There will also be a US drop in Q4, while every one waits for the next iPhone. Q1 2013 is be crazy again. Great thing is about this is apple has expanding markets that will keep the iPhone sale hummin for a while

  • Apple - Time To Take Profits As It Cedes Computing Market To Google [View article]
    Maybe the author should read something from a semi respectable publication. Read this, and then you come back and change your article:

  • One Risk To Apple's Business: The 'Cool' Factor [View article]
    So android has 68% smart phone market share, while apple has 16%
    Does than me we can assume all those android users are going to want to "try something new", like the iPhone?

  • Apple Blundered A Little With The New iPad [View article]
    Wow, ok so I know you probably more of a stock analyst than a tech analyst. But both of your points, while slightly true are really a non issue.
    Sure it would have been nice to see 4 core cpu, but the 28nm manufacturing process was not ready yet. With out making the die smaller apple would have a a really hard time with power and size and heat constraints. You would not be seeing a 10 battery hour time, it would run hotter than it does now and the cpu would take allot more space. So apple did do the right thing.
    Now games that are not modified for the new res look fine and play fine, they are not slower than the iPad2. Games that take advantage of the new res can run slower if they are not optimized. Most game publishers would not release a game like that, so its really a moot point. Apple has an advantage, just like game consoles, it can do more with less because the hardware is known and a game can be optimized to it.
    The size issue is also not a big deal. Most games were already too big to be downloaded on cellular connection and the size increases are worth the higher res you get if your gamer and your really probably only playing 2-3 Big games @ once. (remember you can always remove and re-download a game for free)
    In the future maybe apple will detect what iPad you have and download different assets.

    These 2 "issues" will not be stopping any one from buying an iPad 3. The real question is the cheaper price of iPad 2 might be tempting to new tablet users. But apple has that covered with using a smaller size A5 (32nm) which is cheaper to manufacturer

  • Doubling Down On Apple [View article]
    Im an a HUGE apple bull, love the company and products. The thing that "worries" me is apple's guidance for qtr 2 2014 revenue ($42 – $44) will be around the same same as qtr 2 2013 (43.6). apples P/E @ the time of qtr 2 2013 ER was 9.6, right now even with the ER drop its @12.87

  • Hedge Fund Picking Means Apple Season [View article]
    Good article but does it really matter? all these funds have the stock then who's gonna buy then? I guess if all your looking for is the dividend its fine. What would be more interesting to know is what funds don't have apple and if they plan to take positions. Stock cant sustain an upward trend with out big boys buying.

  • Apple Screwed Up Big Time [View article]
    Huh? We are talking about the display here. You want pixels smaller!!! (Camera you want the sensors bigger to let more light in)
    Any ways, igzo is a very good tech and will get better. Apple needed to go with it to get battery down & res up for the iPad mini retina and it is the only tech @ this time that could be produced in the numbers apple needed from their partners. iPad is really the first mass market device to use this tech (a few cell phones and laptops have but only in less than a million quantity)

  • Apple Should Drive Higher Going Into Monday's Developer Conference [View article]
    There will be no new iphone until Fall. New OS versions shown and new Mac airs and maybe pros (maybe iRadio too). Also the stock is not moving this week. People are waiting on the sidelines to see what WWDC will bring before they jump in (or stay out). you can see this by low volume this week. With the volume low, option Market Makers have control of this stock and will not let it move much. To much money at stake.
