  • Apple: A Reversal Of Fortune Seems Inevitable [View article]
    Is this author Mr. Blair for real? I just came back from China a month ago. How much Mr. Blair know about the smartphone market in China? In my opinion, next to nothing. Certainly, there are plenty of Chinese who purchase Xaiomei phones but when it comes to what the Chinese want to own, Apple brands are what they aspire to have. Consequently, sales of Apple smartphones in China are increasing steadily from month to month. Blackberry? Hardly anyone has heard of Blackberry in China. I wonder how many investors here in N. America have made good money going long in BBRY in the past year? Probably none, except perhaps Mr. Blair. Mr. Blair's articles are all variations on the same theme. How many readers of Seeking Alpha bother to read through Mr. Blair's articles on Apple from the begging to the end? I really wonder!

  • Apple: A Reversal Of Fortune Seems Inevitable [View article]
    Is this gent Mr. Blair for real? I just came back from China. Comparing Apple products to Xiaomei in China is akin to comparing a BMW to a Hyundai. Surely there are plenty of people buying Xiaomei smartphones but when it comes to smartphones, Apple is the brand that the Chinese look up to and want to own when they save enough money. Blackberry? How many investors have made money longing Blackberry in the past year? Probably none except Mr. Blair perhaps.
    How many readers of Seeking Alpha read through Mr. Blair's articles on Apple from the begging to the end, I wonder? His articles on Apple are all variations on the same theme. Enough is enough about Mr. Blair's diatribe. Following his advices to short Apple has probably caused quite a handful of investors to lose their shirts.

  • Apple's Q3 Bonanza: The Real Story May Be Not Quite So Bullish [View article]
    Mr. Blair: Keep up with your "good" work of putting down Apple. It appears the more you put down AAPL, the higher the AAPL shares climb. When you are caught in the short-squeeze of AAPL yourself, you will help the AAPL shares to go up a bit further, however tiny it may be.
    Mr. Blair, take a good look at your nightly broadcast of news on your TV. Aren't you quite surprised that most if not all laptops on the broadcast tables of those newscasters have an Apple logo on them? A picture speaks a thousand words. Doesn't it?

  • Apple's Q3 Bonanza: The Real Story May Be Not Quite So Bullish [View article]
    Mr. Blair: Please keep on putting down Apple. The more your negative articles appear, the more Apple shares go up. So keep on your "good" work until you yourself are caught in the Apple short-squeeze and enable Apple shares to climb further up, up and up!

  • U.K. iPhone 5C pre-orders "a big disappointment" [View news story]
    These Brits are strange. Blackberries are going down the tube with big write-down of inventory expected next week and they still like it. Big lineups in front of Apple stores overnight for Apple stores to open here this morning in Vancouver and the gold and silver Apples are already selling at a premium in the black market trade in China. Don't feel sad for Apple especially if you own the stock. Feel sorry if you are shorting it.

  • Apple Q2 2013 Earnings Are Out: What You Need To Know [View article]
    What a strange phenomenon! As soon as AAPL results came out, CNBC immediately lined up its AAPL bashers headed by this long-time obsessed and habitual AAPL basher Ms Lee. For a media outlet supposedly specializing in business and investing, one wonders if CNBC knows anything about balanced and unbiased reporting and broadcasting for the benefit of the public instead of fanning the egoistical self-gratification of a few individual media personalities.

  • Apple (AAPL) is likely to more than double its dividend this year, says Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty after talking to CFO Peter Oppenheimer. Corporate Finance 101: She suggests the company can get around the issue of cash held overseas by funding payouts with low-interest debt rather than repatriation. Shares +0.7% premarket. [View news story]
    Should work in theory. But the politicians would probably veto this because if AAPL were allowed to do it then other companies would do the same for the sole objective of avoiding tax. Many other big cap companies also have tons of money kept overseas and the U.S. Treasury would not like to lose this huge chunk of money in the form of tax revenue. Another method is to compensate AAPL investors with one-time stock dividends instead of cash dividend although this may have a diluting effect on the share price in the short run.

  • Apple Earnings: What's Next? [View article]
    When a stock like Apple went straight up in the last couple of years, many investors made good money. But don't forget many who missed the boat at the same time wanted to recoup money that they missed making. Those are the contrarian hedge funds, big short manipulators and regular retail shorts, all aided by a few biased commentators especially on CNBC. Personally, there is no way I'll part with my AAPL holdings at this point especially I see a dividend increase is inevitable, a linkup in the near future with China Mobile and more innovative new products. AAPL has just about the largest collection of the best computer minds in the country. To say that AAPL has no more innovative products in the future simply does not make any sense at all.

  • Apple Is Not A Retirement Stock [View article]
    Can anyone name 3 retirement stocks nowadays if you are 40 years old? 25 years from now approaching retirement, it'll be a completely different world in tech, health or whatever industry.
    Either you want to long or short AAPL, it is up to an individual's financial perspective and money available for investing or speculating. Anyone who can tell what will happen five years from now is either a charlatan or day-dreamer.
    I am long AAPL based on what I see on its balance sheet, cash flow and P & L. What will happen a few years from now, only the Man upstairs could know.

  • Is Apple Really A 'Buy'? [View article]
    As I commented before, I read similar articles when AAPL traded at $100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 and 700, Now it is at 500 plus, a drop from the high of 700. Othe big techs such as Google also bounced around for a long while between 400 and 600. I am a fundamental investor. I look at the B/S, cash flow and P & L, P/E, turnover ratio etc. I just can't find any big tech which can match AAPL not only in its fundamentals but also in its prospects of new products and future market expansion particularly its impending hook-up with China Mobile probably in the coming six months. In my opinion, AAPL still has 40% to 60% upside in 2013 . I simply don't see any valid reason to jettison AAPL at this point in time.

  • A little more on Deutsche/Apple: The firm notes Japanese analyst Yasuo Nakane has long been cautious about FQ2 (March quarter) iPhone builds, and thinks the consensus for FQ2 iPhone sales has fallen to around 37M. The U.S. team thinks Nakane's estimates (45M builds in FQ1, 28M-30M in FQ2) implies upside to his FQ1 sales forecast, and downside to his FQ2 forecast. Meanwhile, his forecast for 17M-19M FQ2 iPad builds implies upside to an FQ2 forecast for sales of 15M. [View news story]
    As I commented before, I read more or less the same things when AAPL traded at $100, $200, $300, $400, $500, $600 and $700.
    I took my plunge at $250 and had never regretted it. I look at AAPL's balance sheet, cash flow and P & L and compare it to the other big techs. I simply couldn't find a better deal to put my money in in the short and the medium term. Longer than 5 years, no one knows except the Man upstairs.

  • Apple, Nokia, Research In Motion - Which Is A Winning Bet For 2013? [View article]
    RIMM is a one trick pony. If the Blackberry 10 gets panned when it hits the market in Jan., the stock will be dumped big time. If the reviews are good, it probably takes at least a year for RIMM stock to gain perhaps 40% max. When APPL hooks up with China Mobile, watch for APPL stock to shoot up 10% overnight. The CEO of China Mobile said himself the deal with AAPL was a matter of time. I bet the APPL/China Mobile deal will be finalized no later than the 2nd quarter in 2013. My money is on APPL for certain.

  • If Apple Isn't Investing In Apple, Should You? [View article]
    STRANGE! The author's name of this article isn't anywhere. Is this ridiculous article written by some Martian-Mayan who just landed on earth after the end of the world today?

  • Consider Selling Apple Stock [View article]
    Fellow readers: Be careful reading articles of this nature. Note that this dude says he won't initiate any position in AAPL in the next 72 hours. That means by Thursday afternoon, he can short AAPL with a clear conscience. I had noticed writers who had articles published on a Thursday. That means by Monday morning, they wouldn't have any problem to initiate a position in the stock they promote. Also, if they violate their promises, what can we do? Sue them? Of course not. Thus, I caution everyone to treat this kind of article with a grain of salt.

  • Consider Selling Apple Stock [View article]
    Guys like this dude said they had no intention to have any position in this stock in the next 72 hours. That means by Thursday afternoon this week, he might short AAPL with a clear conscience. I had noticed before reading articles of this nature on a Thursday. That means the writer can initiate a position by the next trading day on a Monday morning. If guys like this dude are genuine, why don't they say they've no intention to have any position in the stock in the 30 trading days. Also, even if they violate this, what penalty they have to pay? Can we sue him? Of course not. So, fellow readers, if I were you, take stock recommendations like this dude's with a grain of salt.
