  • Apple: Adding A Beaten Up Giant To The Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio [View article]
    >My biggest problem with AAPL is that I don’t know if its share price is >more likely to stabilize another $50-100 lower than today’s price or >$50-100 above it.

    Do you do any technical analysis when considering taking on a potion ? the chart will tell you when the trend reversal is likely to happen or has happened. Stock prices are inline wih fundementals in the long run but in short and even intermediate term, they are goveverned by short term supply/demand (of shares) which can be influnced by many micro and macro factors - and these are all reflected on the chart.

  • Apple $1000: Why It's Time To Buy [View article]
    I would think it only makes sense that you sell 500 puts to benefit financially while waing for AAPL to tank to 500 - so pray tell why expiry have you you picked ?

  • Amazon A Better Investment Than Apple? On What Basis? [View article]
    Thank you for sharing your insight. I am not surprised! I am a happy Amazon end customer but not a believer of it as a good investment. Hang in there for AAPL. I suggest you check out http://bit.ly/SOKSEv (a blog by a very experienced AAPL ivestor) and http://bullishcross.com (one of the few Apple analyst and fund manager who really understands Apple and invests real time and effort in research all aspects of the company)

  • Is The Post-Jobs Apple Still A Buy 1 Year Later? [View article]
    Go educate yourself about APPL as an investment Vehicles from the people who really knows the company and the stock:

    Excellent article in AAPL investor psychology:

    so sick of the old comparisons to Sony, Nokia .. and the "now Steve Jobs is not there anymore" - go really study and understand the company, its markets, its earning power, its trajectory ...

    This article is littered with overly simplistic, subjective, comparisons that are simply misleading and useless. Just like when the infamous AAPL bear David Kass ovlaying two charts and suggesting AAPL is crashing down:

  • Doug Kass doesn't pull any punches in making a bear case for Apple (AAPL +0.9%). The iPhone 5 "feels like a toy," Kass writes, while claiming Steve Jobs would have never "let it go out the door like that." With Jobs gone, Apple risks "losing that magical Walt Disney feeling," he adds. Kass, who shorted Apple in winter (that hasn't worked out well), also believes Apple is "losing mojo and mindshare" to Samsung, and predicts his fears might start to be realized after the December quarter. [View news story]

  • The breakdown of Apple's (AAPL) iOS Maps partnership with Google (GOOG) centered around turn-by-turn navigation, sources (possibly within Apple) tell AllThingsD's John Paczkowski. Apple pushed Google to provide data that would enable turn-by-turn, but Google was unwilling, at least without in-app branding and/or support for other Google features. One source suggests Apple execs have been taken aback by the Maps uproar. "I think they felt they were farther along than they actually are." (more[View news story]
    so you are saying when the stock responds next week, it will be because the worries are suddenly gone ? Stocks rallies, pullbacks, consolidates and continue on the trend. and there are post event run-ups and there are post-event selloffs.

    Short term stock movements generally has nothing to do with fundamentals.

  • Apple (AAPL) wants Judge Koh to award another $707M in damages from Samsung (SSNLF.PK) on top of the $1.05B a San Jose jury awarded the company last month, as well as a permanent ban on 26 Samsung smartphones (it was previously looking for just 8) and 3 tablets come Dec. 6. Samsung wants a re-trial, alleging the time constraints of the California trial "prevented Samsung from presenting a full and fair case." Neither side will be giving its patent lawyers a break anytime soon. [View news story]
    Totally agreed.

    Let's see, 2007 - iPhone, 2008 - Mac Book Air, 2010 - iPad, 2012 - Retina Mac Book Pro (sets the new standard for the industry again!) ..

    Each one of them is copied by SamSung (and others).

    and what did SamSung do instead of copying ? oh the 5'' screen on their phones .. but who can't do that ? as a matter of fact it's a lot harder to make up compact then size up. Oh, I know I left something out - Stylus!

  • "We’ve been completely blown away by the customer response" to the iPhone 5, says an Apple (AAPL +1.2%) spokeswoman. The strong early demand has already been enough for two of Apple's biggest sell-side fans to sing its praises again. Topeka's Brian White now thinks his projections for 10M-12M FQ4 iPhone 5 sales could be conservative. Piper's Gene Munster predicts the phone's feel and build will take consumers by surprise, and notes its social media buzz has been very strong. [View news story]
    and isn't that Apple is the only company reports actual Sales # ? others report shipping # and in Amazon's case not any number and just (our #1 selling ...)

  • Apple Schooled Nokia On Launching New Products [View article]
    I can't believe to this date there are still people attribute Apple's success to "Marketing". The very least - superb execution. and if you are still comparing spec sheets - you need to step in the new ear of mobile devices - yes it's about hardware, but it's more about software, and most importantly, it's about ecosystem!

    don't get me wrong, Lumia 920 is a good-looking phone and good to see more different platforms on the market - and do enjoy your Lumia 920 (whenever they will actually ready to sell). but I am just a little sick of all the hardware spec talks. Sine we are on the subject, Apple is often conservative to adopt specific new technology because they want to make want to wait until it matures, or want to make sure the inclusion will sure bring good values to the customers. LTE, NFC - are two examples. Apple considered adding NFC to 4S last year and management decided against it in the last moment for concerns about security and doubts about if NFC is the right technology for mobile payment. Apple does does not add features just so they can complete the check list - and I highly respect that. It's so laughable all those "Apple playing catch-up talk".

  • 45% of U.S. consumers eligible to upgrade their phones over the next 3 months intend to buy an iPhone (AAPL), according to a Baird survey of 2K U.S. Web users. 31% are undecided, and just 22% are set on buying an Android (GOOG) phone. Also 77% of iPhone owners plan to buy another one, whereas only 48% of Android users are promising to remain loyal - 34% are undecided, and 17% say they want to buy an iPhone.

    LaVelaBoy, agree with you. I am amazed how much energy some people spend on things they don't like.

  • As Apple (AAPL +1.1%) nears $600 for the first time since late April, Digitimes claims a next-gen iMac could arrive around October, possibly with a retina display in tow. Rumors that an iMac refresh would arrive at Apple's June Worlwide Developer Conference didn't pan out. Meanwhile, a Chinese site is providing the latest rumor about the arrival of a 7.85" iPad Mini - it claims the device will have 8GB of storage, and sell for $249-$299.  [View news story]
    Horace Dediu via @asymco tweeted earlier "if there is a 7" device from Apple I hope they call it an iPod" -- makes sense
