  • Apple iWatch: A Big Deal Or Not? [View article]
    Given some reports I've read that Apple is buying Taser, I have to believe they will offer a weaponized version of the watch. Wait, what day is it?

  • Apple: Every Vote Counts [View article]
    I wish Icahn would leave Apple alone and focus his energy on Nuance, which could use a boatload of activism right now.

  • Apps Won't Save Apple [View article]
    Does Apple look like a company that needs saving, really?

  • Where Have All The Apple Skeptics Gone? [View article]
    Expected move in a range of $512 to $538. I like Jimmy but he does have a flair for the dramatic. If Apple heads back to the low 400s a boat load of other companies will follow.

  • Apple's New iPads Are Out And They Are Gorgeous: Sell The News [View article]
    Apple has an expected move of plus or minus $73 by January expiration. The author doesn't have to be "right" for all of the next three months to profit from his trade. He just needs a favorable swing along the way, and I seriously doubt he's expecting to hold them to expiration.

    This is one of the few articles on Apple worth clipping for posterity. Kudos to the author.

    Investing and trading are not mutually exclusive.

  • Tim Cook's Improbable Victory In Washington [View article]
    Apple has to compete for every dollar it earns. Members of Congress only have to compete for re-election. Apple is the most admired company in the world, current stock price notwithstanding. Congress has an approval rating of 11 or 12 percent. Apple is working within a tax structure for which Congress is responsible.

    If Apple paid more taxes, I'm afraid our government would just waste it anyway.

  • Apple: Too Far, Too Fast? [View article]
    There have been so many articles here and elsewhere offering various estimates for valuation, financial impact of the dividends and buyback, etc. They have their place, but in the near term I believe Apple's price will be driven more by various catalysts ahead. And at this time we are getting pretty close to the time frame in which those catalysts are likely to occur. Sure, the price could pull back from here. But it could just as easily surge 5-10% in one day on positive news.

  • Apple: Massive Buyback Powers Shares After Hours [View article]
    @msmth: you make a really important point. Following Apple can/has become an obsession. Reading every article, tweet, blog post, etc. is fascinating but it does nothing for the rest of one's portfolio. The time is better spent evaluating other stocks owned and finding new opportunities - like the ones Bret surfaces nearly every day.

  • Apple Investors Are Missing The Big Picture [View article]
    The sheer amount of bs coming from The Street, CNBC and various other sources is staggering. I hit my limit a couple days ago, when a news item on MarketWatch mentioned that an analyst at BMO Capital Markets reduced his rating on AAPL to market perform and - wait for it - reduced his price target from $440 to $435, a 1% reduction. Are these people infants?

    Apple should issue a special dividend to shareholders who don't whine.

    Well, you have a point. But at least he's not suing at the moment.

    What evidence is there that Apple is complacent? I don't think the design team is hanging out on the front lawn, drinking beer and playing bocce.
