  • 3 Signs That Apple's Next Breakout May Be Its Last [View article]

    today is the proof, any other company on the Globe would have exploded for share price with such results, but all this front loading and anticipation is keeping a lid on the stock.

    Apple has got to stop with the share buy back it is a waste of investors money, no matter if there are less shares available and the EPS go up, no company on the globe is making what Apple makes and they get zilch for gratitude in their share price unless they come in and push the stock themselves.

    just up the dividend to 5% , reward your share holders and the selling will evaporate immediately.

    Apple is too big a market cap, the stock will have to do far too much fighting to move the needle, very unjust, but that's Wall Street

    so just hand that cash back to your loyal investors and let's see if anyone will sell the worlds most secure stock when your paying 5% per annum.

    Yes i agree, that's why often if the purpose is to go for capital gains and the stock buy back does not give the result they are looking for, the next thing you know is an activist will ask to split the company, float the 4 divisions separately and get to that trillion market cap on the sum of all parts.

    LT investors are not looking for that they know Apple is the best tech company on the Globe and could well be the worlds largest and most successful tech conglomerate in the world, moving into health, transport, security, space .. Apple can afford to buy the best brains on the Globe , create the best think-tank in the world.

    their aim should not be to be the largest by a mile in market cap ( they will anyway ) but the best rewarding for its share holders.
    Apple could be the worlds best private pension fund for those willing to invest , not just for US citizens , but for many

    but I do agree with you that at some stage Apple is going to become it's own worst enemy if they don't get rid of that cash, the market will fight Apple to move that needle much beyond where they are today.
    yes 120 is possible , but there is a cap, also for Apple.
    it's a flaw in human nature, after number One , you can only become number 2 and the more people want that to happen, the more likely it will.

    so Apple should really hand out that cash.

    i also feel the stock is not expensively priced, but it's just very difficult for Apple to move beyond a certain market cap level, because it's never been seen before by any company on the Globe.
    Apple buy-back program is not really having as much effect as one would expect, because the program attracts a lot of front-loading by Traders and Specs, all looking to take profit at higher levels.

    Apple should abandon the buying program and instead up the dividend to 5%, Apple should take the selling out of the stock, rather than do massive buying, which will automatically again attract selling.
    Apple would as such better reward their loyal LT investors.
    by doing that they will immediately take all the selling out of the stock and do away with the large Specs in the stock only looking for quick returns.
    the stock itself will improve gradually and steadily and we all have decent income out of the stock and growth for wealth.
    I will Always opt for a steady good return and ownership of a stock than move from one trading stock to another, just for capital gain purpose.
    people wanting to Trade for swings should move to JCP or BBRY or other non paying dividend stocks.

    I also feel all these articles on Apple are damaging the stock, there is so much anticipation again of how well Apple should perform, people throwing numbers around so high, that a little short on the numbers feels like a disappointment and failure, absolutely ridiculous, Apple makes more money than any other company on the Globe and if they just come slightly short of ridiculous expectations they get nailed.
    madness.
    Just up the dividend to 5% and see if anyone wants to sell your stock, I think only buyers will move in.

  • Apple: Time To Sell? [View article]

    Apple should get rid of the Traders and Speculators in their stock and reward the long term investor and the best way to achieve that is stop buying their own stock, because Traders and Specs are front loading to sell into that buying and simply up the dividend to 5% , that will immediately take the selling out of the stock and enhance long term ownership.

  • Why Is Apple Undervalued? [View article]
    dear Author, thank you for yr paper,
    I feel the sheer size of Apple's market cap is becoming an unjust psychological handicap, the stock split brought about a lower share price , that enabled more people to participate in the stock, that was not a good move for the stock price, because those people are more leaning towards trading the stock than holding the stock.

    Apple has become the largest buyer/supporter of their own stock because of the buy backs, but that is no guarantee for sustainable higher prices.

    if Apple has a problem being justly rewarded for share price, Apple should simply double the dividend , reward your shareholders with more cash , your stock does not have to improve in market cap , just up the dividend to 5% and just watch what happens to your stock price.

    dear Author,
    
    maybe so, but not before Apple hits 1 trillion market cap, so from here another 50% to go.

  • How High Can Icahn Drive Apple Shares? [View article]

    maybe a bit over the top, but I do agree, however instead of buying their own stock, I would prefer Apple ( if allowed ) to take a substantial interest in Lenovo


    I see LT Lenovo as the only serious contender outthere, as they are really gaining ground everywhere and making money.

  • Samsung Is Sinking, While Apple Garners Robust Demand In China [View article]
    I doubt very much he has capitulated, he has only moved into the trenches.

    I believe the Author to be a highly intelligent person, he is able to analyze very well and as such casts doubt in your mind and he does that with so much vigor and so many papers that he is the most dangerous Author here on SA and his last paper is an insult, than keep quiet for a while , but to change your mind on a Position you have defended whilst it moved almost 100% against you and at times even mocked the company you are writing about and now at the highs change your tune is a slap in the face to all his loyal followers.

    all these sales numbers have no meaning whatsoever, the only number that matters is Apple convincingly moving above 100$ a share, so far with all the good news Apple is not able to make that move.
    the last time Apple was here 2 years ago, the company was not so diversified , they had less cash and more shares outstanding, so in essence the company has now more value and should be a better buy, yet it is struggling to move to new highs.

    anyone care to explain that ?

  • Bill And Chuck's Incredible Journey - Apple's Blowout Launch Weekend Revisited [View article]

    Apple's sheer market size is a handicap, it is so huge, that its difficult to see how that could even become bigger, as the world has never witnessed this before.

    however if Apple were to break-up its business in 3 or 4 different entities and all float them separately the sum of all companies would be a trillion dollars.

    Icahn is sitting on massive profits , as long as he is not getting out, this is what he will be gunning for.

    I am praying for a correction to enter this stock, which I feel now is too overbought, however if the stock neutralizes for technical indicators and is still here in 2 weeks , i will buy it again.

  • Michael Blair's Analysis Of Apple's 10 Million First Weekend Sales Is Way Off Base [View article]

    Mr. Blair is an extremely intelligent man, who analyses and writes very well and convincingly, so he makes one nervous , you always think is he going to be right this time and as he has made this his mission to be called right one day, which obviously eventually he will , I prefer not to read his articles when I am in the stock, but I do read the comments.
