  • An 'Apple To Apple' Comparison Of Apple [View article]
    I am actively adding more shares and buying calls ( or selling puts) on AAPL shares.
    Eventualy the market will realise that the price action in the past few months has been by the fast money folks who couldnt care less about a companies future, only what it will do for them short term.

  • A dispute between an Indiana farmer and Monsanto (MON) over soybean seeds will be heard next week at the Supreme Court. At issue is how long MON can claim patent protection for its genetically engineered seeds, but it isn't just the agriculture world that's nervous about the outcome. Microsoft (MSFT) and Apple (AAPL) have filed briefs saying a ruling against MON would "eviscerate" their patent protection. [View news story]
    Patent laws are terrible. they only protect the side that has the most money to invest in the U.S. court system.

    I got burned like a lot of others but the loss has been more than just covered by my owning Apple shares. Every once in a while we get blindsided, that's the way the market works. Go Apple!!!

  • It's time to "back up the truck" on Apple (AAPL -1.7%), says Oracle Investment's Laurence Balter, who's reiterating a Strong Buy and $670 PT. Balter notes Apple money flows are down $1.56B over the last 30 days, something he considers a sign of retail capitulation, and believes block trade activity indicates heavy institutional buying. He ignited a firestorm in August by downgrading Apple to Hold (shares then traded at $659), but has made multiple upgrades since. (iPhone estimate cuts[View news story]
    An early call, Larry. I expected a run up on AAPL in January. But I'll be happy if it starts now. GO AAPL!

  • 3D Systems (DDD) is receiving some bad PR in the tech press after suing popular crowd-funding platform Kickstarter for promoting a 3D printer that allegedly infringes one of 3D's patents. The printer in question was developed by startup Formlabs, which raised $2.9M via Kickstarter to build it, and the patent in question relates to improving the quality of products made using a printing technique known as stereolithography[View news story]
    The problem with court action to defend a patent rights is that the party with the most money will always win hands down. Been there, done that!

  • Apple's (AAPL -0.3%) recent selloff has been enough to make Jim Cramer turn bullish. "We think this is a buying opportunity for the long term — a 10% discount for a company trading at 10x [EPS], excluding cash," says the animated Mad Money host. He touts Apple's product line and $120/share in cash, as well as early iPhone 5 demand. (Nomura) (Sterne Agee[View news story]
    I added more shares this week to my already substantial holdings of AAPL. Also sold puts at Dec/700.

  • Here's The Evidence For What Stock Splits Really Signal [View article]
    Firms that do reverse splits do it because they are usually NOT doing well.
    When a company splits they are always doing VERY well. Nuff said! Buy AAPL!

  • A worrying trend or a contrarian indicator? Leon Cooperman's Omega Advisors was far from the only big hedge fund to unload its Apple (AAPL) position in Q4. Joining Omega were Dan Loeb's Third Point, Thomas Steyer's Farallon Capital, Barry Rosenstein's Jana Partners, John Burbank's Passport Capital, and Eric Mindich's Elton Park Capital. On the other hand, David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital raised its stake to 1.3M shares from 1.1M and bought 275K call options ahead of its Prop. 2 suit (13F). Apple has historically been a hedge fund darling[View news story]
    So some of the funds are leaving one of the best stocks to own in the last 50 years? Sounds real smart. I think I'll buy more now.
