  • Apple (AAPL) has adjusted expected iPad (down) and iPad Mini (up) shipments in 2013 to 33M and 55M respectively, reports Digitimes. Originally the company had predicted 60M for the iPad and 40M for the Mini. It may be bad news for panel suppliers to the iPad, but good news to those for the iPad Mini. [View news story]

  • A worrying trend or a contrarian indicator? Leon Cooperman's Omega Advisors was far from the only big hedge fund to unload its Apple (AAPL) position in Q4. Joining Omega were Dan Loeb's Third Point, Thomas Steyer's Farallon Capital, Barry Rosenstein's Jana Partners, John Burbank's Passport Capital, and Eric Mindich's Elton Park Capital. On the other hand, David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital raised its stake to 1.3M shares from 1.1M and bought 275K call options ahead of its Prop. 2 suit (13F).

    Too many people follow blindly to bad reporting. As for apple sellingroducts they are selling everything they make. So you are telling since they lost their coolness they are selling everything they can make and have more profit then Samsung.

    Wall Street guys are more clueless than we give them credit. Before seeing last qtr results they had started spreading false reporting about apple earnings.

    These guys take the stock up and same way bring it down. It's a game and media such as cnbc plays with them.

    In countries like India and china they are selling out iPhones and other products. However media reports incorrectly that they are having trouble. That's the first sign of clueless analyst and media that has made up their mind before seeing actual facts.

    Does iPhone need a bigger screen to compete with Samsung? Yes. But it's still more desirable than Samsung phones.

    Since when did we start trading stocks on technical charts and zero fundamentals. Technicals break down when media and false reporting breaks down stocks thus charts. This is the dumbest thing I have seen.

    Does anyone that does a business ever buy anything purely on technical and never look at valuation?

    This is the greatest stock manipulation I have seen? How else can You explain AMZN stock price after being in business for over 7 years still as growth company. It's margins are dismal to nothing. It's trading at close 4000 times earnings. So people wait another 7 years to come downt to PE of 400?

    There is no logic. Unfortunately if you have company like apple that generated $1 billion of profit per week isn't good enough. Although AMzn which genareates really nothing compared to apple is great investment.

  • Apple's Decline: Thanks, iPad Mini [View article]
    Once again research like this done sitting at desk makes me laugh. You need to go out and see customers filling up apple stores. Then you need to goto countries like India and china where Samsung dominates but when an apple store opens people are lining up to buy apple products. I have personally experienced this in India where people who at one time refused to buy apple products have switched from Samsung to apple. Stores are full.

    So analyst jumping on a bandwagon of down stock is really main reason for hurting the stock. There are too many traders that trade based on bad informations and technicals. Fundamentally they still have a lot to gain as market is only getting bigger.

    As long as apple is selling everything they are making its a good sign.

  • Fortress Investment Group: Time To Storm The Castle [View article]
    This funds suck blood out of regular small businesses. They buy distress assets from banks. While banks can sell these notes to existing borrower Fortress or one of its subsidiary will come in and buy the note. They buy these notes very cheaply. Their goal is not to take over commercial asset but rather harasss business owners who have already lost everything by getting judgements against them. They pretend to work with the owner but thier real motive is to suck every penny out of the small business owner. This is what's really hurting our economy. These bastards have no regulations to follow so they are worse than mafias. This is my personal experience. Its time for congress to look into regulating them. I am all of for more business policies but what these guys do is hurting the economy. Banks are big Part of it as they would rather sell these notes to these types of hedge funds than work out with existing borrowers.
