  • Will Apple Get Its Mojo Back? [View article]
    Author: When writing articles that you want people to read it is extremely helpful to write something both interesting and new. Rehashing the same old semi-factual drivel that other hack analysts/guessers have published is boring and lowers the already incredibly low bar for Apple analyst commentary. I'd rather read RichBar postings for four straight hours tied to a chair.

    If you wait long enough Samsung will rip off something else better than the last Apple products they copied that you might like better.

  • Why I Bought Apple At $460.68 And Why I Expect To Make Money On It [View article]
    And Apple will continue to NOT innovate, NOT come up with new products, NOT get into new markets, NOT increase their dividend, etc., etc. etc, blah, blah, blah, all the way to 2017.

  • Apple: Premium Company, Dirt-Cheap Stock [View article]
    Holy cow! A common sense, rational article about Apple?? Did the Justice Department round up and arrest all the analysts on the Samsung, CNBC, Doug Kass payroll? No other explanation.

  • How Much Is Apple Worth? [View article]
    This is weak. Apple is working on some extremely innovative products right now. It's not the picture of a company as a static, motionless, non-evolving entity that you make it out. It seems as though the Apple basher analyst corps invents the most illogical, worst case scenarios to write about in its evaluation of one often greatest companies in history. Why? Why is it you guys can only find the negative angle? Is it because it generates traffic? Seriously, what's your problem?

  • Apple: New Analysis Offers Reasons For A Rally [View article]
    Not sure what to make of the plethora of positive press about Apple the last few days. Have the hedge fund criminals given the "all clear" to the paid analysts/guessers that the last of the Apple retail dummies have been flushed and the upside push is about to begin? "Ok boys, find something positive on Apple to write about, time to make money on suckers on the way back up."

  • Is Apple's Threat Real In The Living Room? [View article]
    You are spot on Kirk. It's advertising and App revenue. Using Apple TV, users can customize the content. That provides Apple with highly detailed user profiles that allow advertisers to custom tailor ads to user profiles. That is a seriously efficient media buy for which advertisers will pay a huge premium. "Right, right person,right time." The user sees ads for products they like and are interested in. The advertisers gains a major media efficiency capability. Apple turns the cable model on its head. Short Comcast. And suck that one Samsung!

    Wrong. It's not about boxes, its about content distribution. If you want a real life example, depending on your age, look at how younger people consume content. The ones living outside the home use Pandora, Netflix, Huulu, Spotify, etc. They don't purchase cable content they don't watch or want. Think iTunes for TV or "The Apple Network". Get it? Try to rip that one off Samsung.

    Poor public relations, not poor marketing. Big difference.

  • Amazon: Boom Or Bust? [View article]
    Thanks Glenn. Trying to inject a bit of levity into this awful Apple situation. What is incredibly frustrating is that it is difficult, if not impossible to be a long term investor these days. One would think that investing in a solid company that makes great products, is growing and setting all time records for profits, would be a solid place to invest. But Wall Street, traders and analysts decide that kind of prudent, logical investing, based on fundamentals just doesn't cut it. And we long term investors get taken for a ride as the stock we own is used a s a personal Yo-Yo for day traders and short sellers. I am long Apple, but what appears to be blatant manipulation of it gets virtually no media attention or scrutiny. And I might add to that the long list of articles presented as truth and proved to be false after the fact. Of course, after the stock tanks we we take the hit for thousands of dollars in losses. One can only throw up their hands and stay the course.

  • Amazon: Boom Or Bust? [View article]
    My scenario has Amazon merging with JC Penney and reinventing the retail experience yet again naming it JC Bozos'. Jeff Bozos is made the new chairman. They extend losses for 24 straight quarters, their margins completely disintegrate. The stock, based on very positive analyst reports, surges to $705 a share by the end of 2014. Bozos then shocks the market announcing a new coal tar powered Kindle. With that announcement Apple shares drop 50% to $180 a share. Doug Kass, infamous short seller, hedge fund criminal and King of the Apple bashers, claims victory and replaces Melissa Lee on CNBC Squawk Box.

  • Apple's New Financial Guidance Will Reduce The Volatility Of The Shares [View article]
    None of this really matters. Other than a handful of true analysts, the rest are traders disguised as analysts playing the stock price to their advantage. Some number are paid schills on the Doug Kass, Samsung, CNBC "bash the crap out of Apple" list. Then of course, there's Cramer's daughter. And the rest are just ametuer guessers who like to have their opinions read. If I were Apple I would give the analyst and financial community zero, nothing, nadda, zilch. The majority of the reports are made up, poorly, if at all, fact checked, and mostly designed to manipulate share price for the amusement of day traders, short sellers and hedge fund criminals like Mr. Kass. So...why bother?
