  • Apple Stock Becoming The Ultimate Safe Haven [View article]
    NewNeo: you are a funny guy.

    It's got almost $50 a share in cash (maybe ONLY $30), much less the best lineup of high-end mobile devices in the industry and the best management team in the industry and a dividend increase coming soon, and don't forget the buybacks and ApplePay and the iWatch and also don't forget about Beats Music and oh, yes, the iPhones are selling faster than they can be made. See ya at 150!! And oh yeah, most likely inclusion in the Dow within your timeframe and we can't forget the buy backs....and, didn't management (normally know for how secretive they are) didn't they just say that there are things they are working on that haven't even come to the media's attention? And I also love my Apple TV. Finally, lest we forget computers? Mac business GROWING at a time that the industry is flat? That's only going to get better. Almost forgot the IBM deal and leadership in education devices.

    But most of all, I love how much Apple stock has performed for me.

    NewNeo, I must say you are tragically wrong this time.

  • Drug retailers cut out Apple Pay [View news story]
    banning credit cards would be very risky for a company like best buy who is just trying to survive. i'm reminded of a few holdout retailers who would only take their "store" credit card....in the end, they had to give in to take Visa and MC, else too much lost business.

  • Banks, Credit Card Companies Could Ensure Apple Pay Becomes A Dominant Platform [View article]
    You lost me at $25 transaction limit. And, Targer will be first in line for secure handling of their credit card transactions.

    Apple is completely changing another industry.

    I am guessing that Target and Home Depot will be early adopters to ApplePay. I can't imagine the damage to the Target brand to have such a highly publicized and large breach on the eve of the Christmas shopping season.

    Apple should participate more in the savings if in fact this wipes out credit card fraud. And, ApplePay customers should benefit in the savings, as well, as they will save card issuers and merchants money.

    So yes, I think it might sell a "few" more iPhones.

    It sounds like they have $12 B reasons (2012 fraud losses despite their best efforts to stop it) to want to support Apple Pay!

    i have had that happen too and i responded to SA to let them know i didn't appreciate their censorship. that said, and mine wasn't personal, but personal attacks are not helpful. facts, such as "his analasis is crap" should be ok.

    He is like a weatherman that always predicts rain. Occasionally and eventually, he will be right. But not now, and not yet.

  • Apple's Q3 Bonanza: The Real Story May Be Not Quite So Bullish [View article]
    hobart16: inflation is coming. It is not possible to print the money that our Fed has printed, and not have inflation. Equity asset valuations have grown in exact lockstep with the Fed balance sheet. Cause and effect? Or, sheer coincidence? You can draw your own conclusion on that. In essence, the equity valuations have increased based on borrowed money, record national debt and yes, due to investors search for return. People living on fixed income have been "forced" to move into equities.

    Now, as those Fed transactions are unwound, or tapered if you prefer that term, equities will undoubtedly suffer. At a minimum, the volatility risk will increase. This is not business friendly, nor will it be referred to as a "golden investment climate".

    Yes, borrowing money at rates near zero has propped up our economy. As rates increase, beginning next year, that market's move upward will likely be slowed.

    As for depression level unemployment, it has been reported that current levels of underemployment and unemployment, along with those that have just decided to remove themselves from the job market, are not appreciably different. The big government policies are not business friendly. Our tax policy is not business friendly, evidenced by companies deciding to leave the country to avoid agregious taxes. When your tax policy is such that your local corporations are disadvantaged from foreign companies due to tax, that is not business friendly. And ultimately, it is not people and job friendly.

    Comparing our dollar to other currencies, and comparing national debt to GDP, are clever approaches to mask the real and raw numbers. Debt is an all time high, regardless what percent of GDP it is. Our kids will have to pay back an all time high national debt in real dollars.

    As for AAPL, I remain positive. The ecosystem is strong. Their cash hoard, their management, their new products, new business relationships, and customer service remain strong. The halo affect that started with iPod and now is still in affect from iPhone, bodes well for future sales of all products.

    Best of luck with your investments.

    don't forget the trilions of dollars the Fed has printed, thereby devaluing the dollars that are in your pocket. so yes, that's not business friendly, or citizen friendly. it's a cover-up of the problems that this administration has caused, assuming you want to deal in facts.

  • Algorithm Predicts An End To Apple's 12-Month Run [View article]
    Eric: no, I don't think it was very funny, nor did I appreciate it. I've removed a lot of stocks from my list of what I used to review on SA. I do not reward poor service in any business. No need to. There are other boards like this one that often offer even more fact-based comments and data.
