  • What Matters About Apple [View article]
    You're not going to get a huge number of accolades for your work here, but I for one, think this was an excellent piece of work, one of the finest I have seen in this genre. I was educated and stimulated by your intellectual ability to cut through the day to day hogwash that surrounds this stock. Well done!!!

  • Apple Depends On Strong Demand For The iPhone 6 [View article]
    Please pick another stock to write about Michael. You're obviously a very intelligent person, but your AAPL hatred has led you down a dark path and is way over done. Short AAPL if you must, but I'm afraid "we're not living in 2012 anymore Toto."

  • Apple Breaks Out [View article]
    Excellent report. Looking forward to a nice run up for AAPL. it looks like the all important sentiment around this stock is turning positive. It's been a long year for those of us who held on to their shares and watched in disbelief as we dipped below $400 from $700. Articles like this are welcomed by those of us who have weathered the awful times over the last year. Happy holidays.

  • After closing on Friday near 10-month lows, Apple (AAPL +3.1%) is rallying in the absence of major news. Likely helping: a weekend Barron's column that made a bull case for the stock while suggesting much of the "fast money" that had joined the bandwagon is now gone. Also, year-end sales made for tax purposes might now be letting up. [View news story]
    Invest in AAPL for the long term...ignore the day to day "casino" effect. Fast money analysts on CNBC are obviously short the stock and have been for the last 3 months...I think its time for Gundlach and Kass to throw in the short towels and go long. A huge qtr earnings report should take it back to $600+, and by February AAPL should be pushing to new highs. Long term investment for retirees and those just starting's the best company in the world and it's a USA firm.

  • More on Einhorn and Apple (AAPL): The company needs to use the same level of creativity with its balance sheet as it does to produce products, writes Einhorn. Every $50B of perpetual preferred stock distributed would unlock about $32/share of value, he says, and Apple has the capacity to distribute several hundred billion. "Greenlight is alarmed that Apple is attempting to eliminate preferred stock from its corporate charter." Shares  +0.7% premarket. [View news story]
    He's trying to get AAPL to do something positive with respect to it's current position on it's excess cash horde. it's important to engage management on the issue since they don't seem to care about investors....remember, investors have made them's like pro atheletes and the fans who pay expensive ticket prices so the players can retire wealthy. APPL needs to pay more attention to Wall Street and the stock price. I've heard the "Cookian" mantra about "building the best products" in the world over and over. What has thet done for your portfolio lately?

  • 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.

  • Apple (AAPL) is upgraded to Buy by BTIG's Walter Piecyk, who makes the move acknowledging the company is set to report an ugly Q1 miss and soft guidance. Piecyk notes he made his April 2012 downgrade ahead of what was surely going to be (and was) a blowout quarter. Shares +1.1% premarket. [View news story]
    You must be kidding, an analyst finally upgrades the greatest American company on planet Earth. What is he thinking? Perhaps, he's ahead of everyone else and expects AAPL to "shine" again despite all of the negative news. What a "brave" soul. Just smarter than the rest of them by a mile.

  • Apple (AAPL) -1% after Deutsche's Japanese team writes supply chain activity suggests a 30%+ Q/Q drop in iPhone 5 production for the March quarter. UBS, Jefferies, and others have already cautioned iPhone production is set to fall sharply this quarter, thus some bad news on this front appears to be baked in. CRUS -1.2%[View news story]
    Rocco Pendola's latest comments on AAPL haters is quite interesting and informative for those who care to think. Isn't it interesting as to why the market psychology re: AAPL has changed from 'winner" to "loser" for this stock.....Rocco indicates in his piece that when you're on top, people in this country begin to hate your success, to wit, listen to the CNBC "dumbos" who are constantly shaking the AAPL tree. There's more distrust as to AAPL's future than ever before, and the haters say, how many IPhones can you sell before the world is sated. As the competition ratchets up, and people begin to buy cheaper products, AAPL sales will surely be impacted, however, the APPL juggernaut will surely roll onward, but the stock price, perhaps not. As more and more AAPL haters take to the podiums and air waves, people are beginning to doubt that the company will regain its dominance and prominence as the largest and best company in the world. Guys like Gundlach and Kass jump on this psychological downbeat bandwagon and the downward spiral of its stock price continues as selling becomes the norm each day pushing more people out of the AAPL empire because they believe the stock is done as a leader. Sometimes being too good can be destructive as is the case with this wonderful American company. So, until the incessant drumbeat of negativity abates, this stock will languish in the mid $500's. Watch as they beat earnings this quarter, the price probably won't move much, if at all, as holders will sell, sell, sell as the naysayers will come out of the woodwork with shouts that this is it, it's over for AAPL. Sad commentary on our country as we can't stand a winner. Check out CNBC for the biggest group of naysayers who are promoting APPL's demise on a daily basis. The power of the media is titanic when it comes to this particular stock.

  • More on Apple's shakeup: Internet software/services chief Eddy Cue will be in charge of Maps and Siri. Design chief/legend Jony Ive will now also be responsible for "human interface" for Apple's products. Bob Mansfield, recently convinced to cancel his retirement plans, will head a new Technologies unit that will include all of Apple's wireless hardware and chip teams. A search has begun for a retail chief to replace Browett; Tim Cook will head retail in the interim. Federighi's promotion could bring additional moves to "harmonize" iOS and Mac OS. (PR[View news story]
    It's about time changes were made. Jobs would have dumped these guys much sooner because they screwed up big time. I salute Cook for making the decision to dump these two anchors.

  • Prospect Capital results hurt by slow origination activity [View news story]
    PSEC presents you with another buying opportunity. We knew they would probably miss, and NAV would slip. Next qtr should be much better with more originations. Dividend stock par excellence, so for me, this is a long term hold with 10,084 shares in my pocket. I really don't know why people trade this stock. Just buy it for the dividends.

  • Now That The 'Little Guy' Is In Apple, Time For The Flush [View article]
    We all should cease and desist responding to guys like Elconin (short for "El Con"). If folks wouldn't respond then SA would stop posting these trashy articles, i.e., no readers, no more posts. Obviously, "El Con" is an hombre who is short APPL and is trying to push the stock down into the low 80's. AAPL bashing is back in style as the short interest has climbed higher this past month. No worries, the more shorts the better, especially when the time comes to cover. See you at $110.

  • More on Apple's (AAPL +1.9%) 3M iPad sales: The figure is padded by the launch of an updated regular iPad, but still suggests weekend iPad Mini sales beat expectations - Gene Munster was forecasting 1M-1.5M weekend sales, and first-weekend sales for the Wi-Fi-only 3rd-gen iPad totaled just 1.5M. It begs the question of how much of Apple's FQ4 iPad shortfall was due to form factor. Every available Mini model is showing 2-week shipping times at Apple's online store.

    Shut up and buy AAPL, the greatest American success story ever...what's wrong with this country...doesn't anyone like success stories.....CNBC stooges are the worst.....

  • An Open Call To Apple Bears For Debate [View article]
    The "punching bag" is down for the count. Down goes Frazier!!!!!! MB is a stone cold revisionist, he's been out to lunch on AAPL for the last year. He who shorts this stock today should be prepared to go down with MB. It's not 2012 anymore Toto!!! Anyway, we continue to give too much credibility to many of these bloggers. There's more to life than the repeating AAPL's history ad nauseam. Move on!!!
