  • Why Xiaomi Is Not A Threat To Apple [View article]
    I think Mr. Blair has to put in something to try and bait people who actually like Apple (it's stock as well as it's products.) And then he sits back and enjoys how many people try and refute his "theories" on why Apple is "doomed."

    You sir, are a true Apple hater and will grab on to anything that you can turn into Apple bashing fodder.

  • Apple Shares Are Ripe For A Pullback - Time To Take Profits [View article]
    Once again, as SOON as AAPL makes it almost to its HIGH, all the nay-sayers crawl out of the woodwork like cockraoches and spread articles like this one, so AAPL goes down again. Why is it that no matter what teh "golden child" Google does, no one writes any negative articles about it; but even if AAPL does well or not, there are fifty articles denigrating it?

    It is true what is said, "when you are the BEST of anything, there is always a bulls-eye on your back."

  • Apple Drops: Should Investors Be Concerned? [View article]
    Yes TCG. I also question the motives of this investment "advisor's" actions. Right now he sends out a prelude to a downgrade, so AAPL shares go down and then when he actually downgrades the stock, it will go down again. Maybe he (and his Company) are waiting to pick up AAPL cheaper than the market price today. They may be one of the few who waited to buy AAPL and now are regretting it.

  • Apple Hits Another All-Time High: Does It Matter? [View article]
    This is a very well written succint article about why we should not get carried away because a stock makes an "all time high." The author gives good advice that if an investor thinks the fundamental valuation is still there in the company, then it does not matter if the said company had made an al time high.

  • Not Selling Apple On September 9th Makes More Sense [View article]
    Same here. My AAPL price per share is now $1.57 with all the splits. My AAPL shares will go to my son and my daughter in equal shares.

  • Apple May Have Finally Crossed The Line [View article]
    @Braeburn, Excellent point. Maybe I should broach that at our next family meeting. My son and his wife are already hitting us up for $16,000 to make up the down payment for their first house.

  • Apple May Have Finally Crossed The Line [View article]
    Dear DynastyMgr, I have the same situation in my home. I am an Apple fan, but my son, who is also an IT professional is an Android user. By the way, I bought my APPL shares at $11 per share (pre-latest split.) When a Company gives you almost a 6000% return, it is hard not to be a fan.

  • Apple May Have Finally Crossed The Line [View article]
    Please folks. Apple has not decided already to change the connector to a lightening connector. The author here is speculating that Apple will do this. This is a speculative "what will happen if" article. Please lets just wait till it actually happens before panicking.

  • Apple Is Running Out Of Cash To Raise Its Dividend [View article]
    Dear Author,
    While I do not completely disagree with your analysis, I think when people put out negative articles on a Company, they should not be allowed to buy that Company's shares for at least 30 days (similar to the "wash sale" rule.)
    Who knows, you may be very influential and popular with the public (I will give you that;) that on your negative bias the Company's shares may be headed for a fall. I just feel that when one is going to purchase shares of a Company, he/she should not be allowed to give any opinion IN A PUBLIC FORUM. Of course, you are entitled to your opinion (no matter how wrong or right it is,) but not publicly.
    That is all I am saying. If you have been slighted to any degree by what I sai, I apologize.

  • Apple Is Running Out Of Cash To Raise Its Dividend [View article]
    I found this interesting. When one reads the "Disclaimer" at the beginning of an (usually negative) article; he see:"Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, but may initiate a long position in AAPL over the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article."

    So what one has to do is simply put out a negative article on a good company, wait for the public to panic and start selling, thus lowering the price of the said Company; and then buying a ton of shares for oneself.
    Wonder how many of these "analysts" do this? Mr. Jones has admitted that he may initiate a LONG position in Apple in the next 72 hours. By that admission, I think he should be barred from giving ANY opinion of the Company's stock, whether he says these ar his personal viewpoints or not.

    Dear Mr. Jones,

    Please research your words before you put them down on paper. This has nothing to do with investing; just plain English. "Arraignment" means "A criminal proceeding at which the defendant is officially called before a court of competent jurisdiction, informed of the offense charged in the complaint, information, indictment, or other charging document, and asked to enter a plea of guilty, not guilty, or as otherwise permitted by law."
    While what you mean is "arrangement" which means "something that is done to prepare or plan for something in the future."
    Apple surely does NOT want to set up an "arraignment" while they may want to set up an "arrangement."

  • Quantifying Apple's Strategic Errors [View article]
    Dear Mr. Blair,
    I am a long AAPL investor (Purchased my shares at $11/share.) I read most articles on AAPL, whether they are positive or negative. Your article intrigued me because you don't just show the problems Apple has been having, but also try to show shome solutions or scenarios where Apple can get out of the funk they are in currently.
    If Apple was innovating new products (like when they came out with the IPod, IPad etc.) it would not have mattered that they kept the high marging products and did not come out with cheaper onwe. But there has not been any new earth shattering innovation our of Cuppertino for quite some time and because of that, they maybe should have thought of the strategy you are alluding to.
    Thank you for your articles. Although I do not like seeing negative articles on Apple, I must face reality.
    By the way, I hope to hold on to my shares at least until I retire and am in a lower tax bracket.

  • The Reason Apple Matters [View article]
    Even a tongue in cheek article cannot hide its distint "anti Apple" flavor.For example, "My Blackberry: How I Was (not) Tricked Into Buying An iPhone." See the large font sentence with the very small font (not) placed after the Was?

  • Apple Beats But Treated As Second Class [View article]
    Mr.Maurer, Today's article on Facebook proves what you said about Apple being held to a different standard than its peers. The article said, "Facebook warns but Wall Street gives it a pass." Facebook is up almost a dollar and a half in spite of the warning by its chief officer. If Apple had given even a hint of a warning, it would be down $25 to $30. Why the unfairness for a Company that has made millions for its investors, I will never figure out.
