  • Apple Is Where The Value Is At [View article]
    What I would like is an iPad Mini which incorporates a phone. Then I could carry iPhone in my pocket, turned off, unless I wasn't carrying an iPad.

  • Google Vs. Apple: It's About Scalability [View article]
    Excellent point Yogaman 101.

    Those who buy and use the apps are the main bottleneck / limiting factor.

    A smartphone/tablet user has a similar challenge to that of someone browsing for what to watch on Apple TV, youtube, vimeo or simply cable television. Too many choices for one person to ever process.

  • Diana Shipping (DSX) +4.5% premarket, apparently thanks to Jim Cramer's recommendation. The dry bulk shipping industry is finally beginning to turn the corner, Cramer says, and once DSX breaks above its current ceiling, the stock could easily hit $14. [View news story]
    You don't have to be long to act upon your reasoning. You can fade the pop by selling it short "shortly after the market opens or even pre-market."

  • Apple Exorcises Map Demons By Purchasing WiFiSlam [View article]
    The author might want to edit the disclosure which appears at the top of the article (when viewed on a desktop computer) which says he has no positions in any of the stocks mentioned and no plans to initiate a position in the next 72 hours - because it contradicts the last sentence of the article.

  • Apple: Already (Essentially) A Private Company [View article]
    Anybody who really wants to open an iPhone can go to ifixit.com

    You "can't open" an iPod, a Jawbone UP, a Fitbit or the Striiv devices to change their batteries either, but they are also very popular.

  • Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy Note 8.0 might be the most serious rival the iPad Mini (AAPL) has seen thus far. The Note 8.0, which ships in Q2, sports a 1200x800 display, a 1.6GHz. quad-core Exynos CPU, split-screen app viewing support, and (like Note smartphones) an S Pen stylus and several apps built for it. No pricing details for now. IDC estimates Samsung's tablet share grew to 15.1% in Q4, though that's still well behind the 43.6% claimed by the iPad, which continues to offer far more tablet-specific apps than Android tablets.

    The short interest in Apple is climbing. Many of the bearish articles regarding Apple have short interest in mind.

  • Time For Apple To Waddle And Quack [View article]
    You are a bit behind the times then. E*Trade has been around since the early 1980s. I first opened an account with them and traded electronically using a Tandy Model 100 computer, before the internet existed.

    Depending on which brokerage an Apple investor uses, DRIP is already available. E*Trade, for example, will re-invest dividends in any stock including Apple, with no commission charged.

  • Apple (AAPL) is the latest company to say that it's suffered a cyber-attack, with hackers breaching its systems after staff Mac computers were infected with malware when they visited a Web site for software developers called iPhonedevsdk. It's the same site that hackers used to get into Twitter's and Facebook's systems by exploiting a well-known security hole in Oracle's (ORCL) Java software. [View news story]
    You are on to something.

    Jesse Livermore, when he was in his prime, would have caught the smell of strong, hidden hands behind much of the puzzling publicity during AAPL downtrend and especially recently. But Livermore preferred to buy at new highs, so he would stalk AAPL and would only buy when it breaks resistance at $705 again. And then, he would buy it by the truckload.

  • Greenlight's "activism" on Apple is cited by Goldman this morning, which reiterates its Conviction Buy and $660 price target on the stock. AAPL +0.6% premarket. [View news story]
    Goldman is probably giving the $660 target to be on the conservative side. They can always raise their target later and look better for being conservative and right.

  • Apple (AAPL) bulls might be interested/relieved/concerned to know the stock's decline was enough to shake Whitney Tilson out of his long position (annual letter). Into 2013, his fund's largest holdings show a decided tilt towards financials - with BRK.B, AIG, C, and GS making the top 5. He's also an investor in Kyle Bass' fund making a big bet on a weaker yen and higher Japanese interest rates. [View news story]
    Didn't Whitney Tilson short NFLX and stay short as it climbed and climbed until it got too painfully high... then he closed his short position near the top, back in 2010? Seems his timing was exactly wrong for Netflix back then also.

    Jonathan, what happened to your article, "Apple's Beta: The Real Cause" ? ... It disappeared before I got a chance to read it.

  • 4 February 'Feel Good' Factors For Apple Fanatics [View article]
    Cramer is a fickle, shallow stock analyst who will turn on a dime with his opinion on a stock. His wife is the only one of the two of them who is sensible, rational and logical.
