  • Update: Apple Is On A Roll [View article]
    Ed-
    I love Apple because it is THE company that effectively engineers the personal technology space and manufactures beautiful products. And I want everything you say to be true...but it seems a little optimistic.

  • Things Overlooked In Apple's Q4 Conference Call [View article]
    It is only in your mind, and that of MB, yomama, and others who are obsessed with bashing Apple, that Apple and Android could possibly be compared.

  • Update: Apple's Mac Produces Incredible Growth [View article]
    Sean, I don't believe it will cannibilize the Mac sales. The big iPad will be for sales and customer education.

    Why do you believe MS will get it right this time?

    Where is the evidence that MS is capable of developing an OS that is able to compete with Apple's OS?

    I am forced to use 2-MS OS based machines at work due to the applications on them. The experience is NOT user based. The machines will disrupt what is going on to download an update.

    MS's culture will have to change b4 they can compete with Apple. Remember, MS has always been lucky...not good.

    Great article: Apple is at the bleeding edge of the personal technological revolution, a revolution that has only begun. Where will Apple take us in the next 50 years?

  • Retirement Strategy: Apple Could Conceivably Double Its Dividend By 2016 [View article]
    Regarded, adding AAPL to your sphere of interest is a wonderful way to help your readers, who really trust you.

    I'd like to add something that your readership may not have considered: We are only at the bleeding edge of the personal technological revolution. Apple is THE leader of this revolution and will not be giving up that leadership any time soon.

  • Update: Apple's FQ4 2014 Earnings And The Market's Reaction [View article]
    If I get the 'wisdom' of your article, it's wait till the market tanks and buy AAPL lower.

    OK, I hope you do that. I'll continue to hold and buy on dips.

    For me, a dip created by a fall in markets in general would simply be an opportunity to buy more stock, because when the market goes up again, so will the shares.

    AAPL is an investment, not a trading vehicle.

    If you understand Apple's vision, leadership depth and employee culture and that we are at the bleeding edge of the personal technological revolution, you will want some AAPL as a part of your account and will add when it falls back.

    Let me repeat that: We are only at the bleeding edge of the personal technology revolution. Very few people seem to understand that life will go on for, at least a few more decades, and that Apple will lead the way in that revolution.

    Traders, unless they are exceptional...and exceptional amazingly wealthy traders do not write for SA...will never make the money they could make by securing long term winning investments and holding through the years.

    I've been in AAPL since I bought 200 shares at, each, 12 and 20 pre-split...not even close to lows. It's been a good investment. How well have you done trading AAPL in the last decade? How well would you have done by understanding the company, trusting your analytic ability and by buying and holding, and buying more on dips when traders were thinking they were smart?

  • Apple: The Growth Story Continues [View article]
    Thank you for the article...what amazed me the most is that iTunes generates revenues greater than one third of the Fortune 500 companies...I think I remember that correctly. Just let that sink in.

  • Can Google Move Beyond Search? [View article]
    This is interesting. Somehow there is an intuitive belief that may hold that wearables are a good idea, and it may be.

    I can't see that far beyond a watch in place of a computer...smaller and more convenient is better. But, in my Dad's life we went from clipper ships to the internet.

    So, no one knows the size of the wearable market because we can't see what will be developed. My belief is that Apple has a much better chance to make wearables work than any other company, given it's culture, leadership and vision.

    So, when you are short, do you pay the dividend?
