  • Jabil Circuit EPS in-line, misses on revenue  [View news story]
    Not sure what OK means in this regard. Another point, how can a small stock like this be a proxy for AAPL? Another startling revelation, if this stock was a harbinger for AAPL's future IPhone sales, then this stock should be much higher....

    Taking a hit on these results, should have known better listening to all the "pie in the sky" BS coming from the vacuous analysts covering this stock.

  • Apple And The Challenge Of Rising Expectations  [View article]
    Rumors of AAPL's demise are again dominating the far reaches of cyberspace, and its world wide leadership in high end smart phones. Furthermore, ts highly sophisticated and enduring ecosystem, and latest system updates are being mocked by the nattering nabobs of negativism. Some analysts assert that the selling of the greatest stock on Earth will soon abate as the weak hands flee AAPL and this treacherous marketplace. There are loud claims by some that AAPL is undergoing consolidation, which may continue for yet another week. However, the long term uptrend is still in place according to all the brilliant chartists covering AAPL. My oh my, what to do, what to do?

    On another theme, I will definitely heed the Fed's advice, and know that the upcoming rate increase(s) will be instituted only because the overall economy is strengthening. Hence, rate increases should be construed as good news despite the expected continued rise in the value of the dollar. Greece has become a side show, and a possible "Grexit" should have short term effects. The big "brained" analysts see a 10% correction once the FED starts to lift rates, however, if such a drop occurs in stock prices, it will, undoubtedly, be a buying opportunity not only for AAPL but for all equities. If such a scenario comes to pass, "cash will be King." The so-called "smart" money may already be prepping for the downturn so should the rest of us followthe bait?

    Obviously, multiple thousands of investors deeply care about AAPL's future, so even if you don't agree with the author's premise, this article can be viewed as a positive addition to the library of AAPL articles. Impressive number of responses.

    Regards Richard, you get treble kudos for responding to your commenters, not many contributors take the time and give the effort to do so. Next time we see a Michael Blair article, I hope you have the time to respond to his negative AAPL utterances.....

  • Apple: May Has Come And Gone And No $140; Where We Stand  [View article]
    I really dislike commenting on SA's articles, but since I read this latest article and saw all the comments, I couldn't help think of Michael Blair and his bashing of AAPL over these many years. Whether this gentleman is right or wrong about AAPL's stock price in the near term is unimportant. The very long term is important to all of us who own AAPL stock, but if the market corrects near term, AAPL will no doubt be dragged down with all stocks. This is a trader's market, and AAPL will continue to be heavily traded much to Cramer's consternation and admonition to "own" AAPL and not to trade it. I for one hold over 3,000 shares in one account where taxes must be paid on annual gains and trade another 3,500 shares in a separate IRA account. If I'm very lucky, I'll sell everything before the long expected vicious10-20% correction hits, but such luck, if it comes my way, will be a fortuitous event given the market's devilishly driven casino ways. My view: listen carefully to everyone who has provided somewhat sage advice, but follow no one; filter all the noise, and make your own decisions based on your best case analyses of the information you have before you. I wish good fortune to all who have a stake in the AAPL world.

  • Michael Blair's Incredible Journey - Apple's Blowout Launch  [View article]
    I skip over Blair's SA articles these days, as he repeats himself over and over, ad nauseam, given that he is on a mission to say something negative about AAPL's future prospects, which is akin to chasing "windmills" in the 21st Century. I will certainly accord him a modicum of credit for his copious production of negative articles as most of them are, at least, well written, but he writes mainly to support a personal wrong-headed and warped thesis about AAPL. However, Mr. Blair has consistently demonstrated that his worn out AAPL thesis and prognosis are neither profound nor wise these days as he stubbornly adheres to his same old mantra or theme, which is to "short AAPL." Someday however, he may be right, but certainly not now.

  • EU: Apple Tax Deals Granted By Ireland Broke State Rules  [View article]
    This is more negative commentary about AAPL run amok. Why you would spout such unsubstantiated drivel amazes. Be a good person and stop making such wild pronouncements about the probable outcome of a complex case; also, the EU needs to clean up its act as well. You say this will take 18 months to come to a conclusion, and warn folks to stay away from AAPL today. Not such good advice for investors. Fear mongering never works, but "shocks" the conscience.

    This is a slam dunk through the end of the year. Then the future divy payout for PSEC will have to be rethought as to whether it is likely to continue at the current rate. Obviously, the next earnings report will tell the tale for 2015. I'm still sanguine about our prospects.

    Point well taken. If they wipe a penny from the dividend, then we might have more issues, but for now the divy is the same through Dec. Next year might be another matter. With the dip in share price, I'm at break even given the divies I've collected. I expect the sellers to tire soon, and the price to return to at least NAV. Management needs to get off of their butts and get some borrowers into their portfolio. Continued buying up equity in companies is a good strategy, but the costs are high, and you do have to pay attention to how your partners are managing your holdings/investments. However, competition for borrowers is on the rise with huge amounts of cash sloshing around the banking system, and now credit seems to be easing.

    Let's give them the benefit of the doubt for this quarter's fiasco. I think the SEC investigation basically shut down any origination activity for several months. You might want to understand how the SEC can screw up a company's business plan by conducting such an investigation...it's brutal!!!!

    Do any of these analysts really understand their business model? seems like it's too complicated almost like a tangled web.
