  • Setting Up Apple's Amazing 2015 [View article]
    Before the drop in share price, APPL was 700. Now it's 770 =/-. The growth has not been so spectacular, nothing like 40%. We are just back to where we 'should be'?? Not really.

    Apple is the most successful company that has ever existed and we are at the bleeding edge of the personal technology revolution.

    The personal technology revolution is only 30 plus years old. Do you think it is going to stop next year?

    Do you really think that someone is going to unseat Apple?

    With what process?
    Who has the R&D that Apple has?

    There will be a time that Apple is not a good investment.

    What will cause that situation?

    Will that situation occur in the next 5 years?

    Andrew-No one was taught a lesson who didn't sell. The only lesson in AAPL I've learned since I bought in the late 1980s is buy and hold.

  • Update: A FuelCell Energy Director Is Disgusted And Hits The Road After 22 Years [View article]
    This is interesting, but we need much more information. The company does business with United Illuminating, PGE, and NRG, three of the largest electrical utilities.

    No fuel cell company is larger or has more powerful partners. We need more information.

    My memory of the Russians is that in chaos, they hunker down behind their leader/become more Nationalistic...and Putin is playing that card game well.

  • Retaliation? North Korea Internet goes dark [View news story]
    Crazy people do crazy things.

    This will be interesting...a science fiction book or movie, being played out in front of us.

    So, we have N Korea and ISISS (sp) and Putin...and what ever we are doing that we don't know about.

    2015 may be living in interesting times.

  • GT Advanced Technologies: Apple Settlement Creates Opportunity [View article]
    Can you explain the relationship between the cost of gasoline and the cost of energy related to heating and cooling and providing electricity to a home?

    I can't see the relationship beyond the relatively few people who might be using oil to heat their homes.

  • After The Apple Watch Should We Anticipate An Apple TV? [View article]
    This is a tangential, but related comment.

    I needed a new iMac for work. I use a large screen, so I went for the 27 inch. I loaded the 27 inchers with the same accessories and the 5K only cost $100.00 more than the regular screen iMac.

    So, Apple has a way of manufacturing the 5K for about the same price as the regular screen. That bodes well if they are going to produce the screen.

  • Sell Apple And Put Up Your Defenses [View article]

    I got married to AAPL @ 12 and 20, in the 1980's. Do you know how many splits there have been?

    The way to make real money in the market is to buy and hold. For me. Maybe not for you. But, don't diss buying and holding.

  • GT Advanced Technologies: Judge's Sign-Off Of Apple Settlement Sets Company Back On An Old Course [View article]
    Success over the long haul in business is related to management. GTAT's managers need to be rotated off the starter's bench.They, especially Gutierrez, are responsible for too many bad decisions that cost hundreds of millions of dollars loss.

    The Board of Directors is derelict in their duties to allow him to remain at the helm.

  • Apple: Does The Party End In 2015? [View article]
    "Apple is not really innovating much since Jobs left."

    You lost me here. You are repeating something you heard.

    TC has been extremely creative and is THE leader that Apple needs at this time.

    This is a fantasy dreamed up by someone that spends too much time thinking about 'great ideas' rather than how to make a profit.
