  • Apple, Samsung Face China Telco Freeze-Out [View article]
    China Mobile in its quarterly report said that it is cutting its subsidies by $2B. It is true that the government asked the telocos to cut their subsidies. One thing that bothers me a lot is since nearly ten days ago China Mobile and others have completely eliminated IPhone 5c from their sites. I do not know why? May be they are cutting the purchase of 5c from Apple?

    Can Chinese government ban Apple products in China? What about its production? Let's do not forget this is a communist regime.

  • After China's Government Bans Purchases Of Apple Devices, Is BlackBerry In Catbird Seat? [View article]
    I have nearly all my savings invested in Apple. Articles like this makes me sleepless. Is it possible that the Chinese government one day bans Apple products in China? Then Apple is finished. Let's do not forget all Apple production facilities are in China? This is a communist regime. One day due to some political issues they can stop American products in China. Anybody any idea? please advise.

  • Apple: October iPhone Report Seems Questionable [View article]
    The fact that Apple revenue guidance shows a range of $3B ($37B to $40B) versus the usual $2B proves there are some uncertainties in the future.

  • Apple Earnings Preview: Fiscal 2014 Tough; Fiscal 2015 Looking Better [View article]
    Let me clear a few points for you guys:

    A 10 to 1 stock split is the mother of all solutions for Apple:

    *Apple is completely different from other companies.
    *It is true that accounting wise it won't make a difference, but grow up and see the real world. Nobody buys one share. People want to have fifty or one hundred shares.
    * There are millions of people worldwide that love to have some shares of Apple for their kids college education, or grand children, or their own retirement. I know so many of my friends and relatives who keep on asking me when Apple will split its stock, so they can buy some.
    *If Apple does such a thing it opens a floodgate, that will take its shares in a matter of few days to $60 (ex-split).
    *Remember these shares will be bought and put in safe deposit boxes, and the buyers are not the day traders, speculators, hedge funds that are after a quick buck. These are ordinary people who love Apple and believe in its future.
    *On any market weakness these people will be able to add to their holdings, because the shares will be affordable, not like now that big institutions and money mangers can only deal.
    *At present hedge funds and money managers pre determine the sales and buys in Apple shares between themselves. This exclusive club will be broken by such a split, and playing field will be leveled for everybody.
    *The same will happen to weekly option writers who manipulate Apple shares
    every Friday.
    * Apple will enter the Dow Jones Index, which lots of funds have to have the shares.
    This will be huge, and the mother of all solutions for Apple shareholders.

  • If Tim Cook Does Not Care About The 'Bloody ROI', Does He Care About The 'Bloody Stock Price'? [View article]
    I think Tim Cook made those comments, because Al Gore is on the Board of Apple.

  • Apple's Post-Earnings Buyback Fails To Sway Growing Negative Sentiment In The Stock [View article]
    Let me tell you the mother of all solutions for Apple share price is a 10 to 1 stock split. Hedge funds and MM agree between themselves to buy and sell at a pre-determined price. They have the majority of Apple shares due to the fact that they can afford it. It is an exclusive club. A stock split of this magnitude will break up this club, and allows millions of Apple fans and believers worldwide who have been waiting on the sideline to join the pool of investors, and offset the role of these sharks. These people are Apple believers and not speculators. They hold shares for the long run, and if cheap when the the big sharks push Apple shars down buy more. Please if you believe in this, express and ask for it by emailing Tim Cook at :

  • Take The Emotion Out Of Apple [View article]
    I found the guidance Apple gave was ridiculous, considering that they have China Mobile and DoCoMo. That makes me mad, and I expressed my feelings to Tim Cook (tcook@apple.com) and head investors relation N. Paxton (paxton1@apple.com).
    Apple guidance killed all the momentum it had gathered recently.

  • Apple's Secret Weapon Into Earnings And 2014 [View article]
    Weekly option writers might rain on the parade of Apple this week. These people have been manipulating Apple shares in the past year, and continue to keep the Apple shares in a range. That is why every Friday Apple shares are down. I wish everybody wrote to Tim cook asking him to put an end to this. Tcook@apple.com
    By the way the best way to stop this is a stock split of 10 to 1. This to a great extent offsets the attempt of weekly option writers and hedge funds, by widening the pool of investors allowing retail investors to be able to buy shares when they are down. Apple shares are now hostage to its options.

  • Apple Earnings Preview: 15% Forward EPS/Revenue Growth Probably As Good As It Gets [View article]
    Brian: The stock fell because the Wall Street found out that there was no offering of new products till Fall, and the eps of Q1 13 (13.81) was less than last year (13.87), and above all the margin dropped to 38.6% from 44.7%. Now WS has accepted 38% margin for Apple. The total cash this quarter will exceed $160 B. Can you imagine what a noise just Icahn will make? Tim Cook also, sais that will be new products and new categories in 2014. That is going to be a different game this year.
