  • Apple: It's Time To Move On [View article]
    You did not read Ashraf's article. This is what is leading to the USA's downfall.

    Here is his summary and conclusion to that article:

    Reading would definitely help before attacking.


    While my colleague Dana Blankenhorn believes that there's not another doubling left in the shares, I disagree. If this company can really turn it around and generate positive top and bottom line growth over the next couple of years, I see no reason why a more market-like multiple of 12-13 could not be assigned to potential earnings power north of $4.00/share. This would imply a share price of $48-$52 -- another doubling over the next year or two!

    Conclusion
    I think HP is a "buy" on any pullback, and my only regret is not hopping on board this train before the earnings report. That being said, I'm not someone who likes to make the same mistake twice, and on the next down day, I plan to start a long position in this technological behemoth. The worst is behind it, even if blue skies may be a few years away.

    "TC left the hearing in a cab .....I am sure most of congress had limos"

    That means revenue for the IRS.

    Can't satisfy some Americans!

  • China won't sacrifice the environment in favor of short-term economic expansion, President Xi Jinping has said. Xi's comments are in line with the government's continued attempts to manage growth expectations as it embarks on reform. The remarks came as the State Council authorized a number of measures that include taxing products that are resource-intensive and heavily polluting, and increasing levies on natural resources. [View news story]
    Words are cheap ...
    Effective implementation is more complicated.

    JFF7:

    ARE you saying plastic-encased Samsung Galaxies are premium?

    What better convenience and fashionable looks than the IPhone.

    Bring up a premium or "luxury" smartphone, so I understand your thinking>

    "Wall Street UNDERestimate the success of Apple for the opposite reason, that is, because it is so immensely popular in the U.S." and in Asia.

    The IPhone is like the Swiss pocket knife of premium smartphones.

    I'm an American in Shanghai. As far as mobile phones, IPhone is tops, then Samsung. Then much further Nokia, Sony, Xiaomi, Lenovo etc ...

    Where does anyone see a current Blackberry in the Bay Area or HK, Shanghai?

    At the outset of Y2k, Cn had about 4% of global PC manufacturing share.

    But due to the devastating 1999 Tw earthquake and the complaints of alienating its OEMs that by 2006 over 90% of computer manufacturing was done on the mainland!

    "Probably the design work was outsourced to Mumbai."

    I would guess Japan. Thinkpads (Lenovo and IBM) are done there. And before Macbook Airs, pre-2013 Macbook Pros looked more like VIAOs, that is Sony.

    I always wanted an Apple computer since the early 80s, over 25 years later I bought one.

    Got to love it!

    Too bad no AAPL long, never understood it until over $300.

    My Acer laptop was hibernating. I never buy anything more than 30 RMB ( less than $5) from street vendors.

    I needed a functional computer without the luxury of system administration, Microsoft failed (lost customer).

    Should always use something before one buys its stock.

    Long Msft, Intc, Csco, HPQ

    I talk with my Shanghai Library system administer friend about why he brings out his Lenovo smart phone rather than his Xiaomi.

    I repeat that buying a Lenovo feature phone was an insult to me.

    But he repeats Lenovo phones are now well-built and functional.
