  • New Models From Honda And Audi Will Consign Tesla And Its Superchargers To A Smaller Niche [View article]
    We all know you are short Tesla, but this is no place to so blatantly look for support, Audi and Honda are not in the same league with electric cars and the future innovations, also you need to change your name, your arguments are somewhat lacking in logic...!

  • New 13D Filing Reveals More Dilution Ahead For Plug Power [View article]
    Well done John on another pro-short piece, did you mention what they have done with the money they have gained from the dilution, I.e. Re-investment in infrastructure to support demand and achieve targets....? The way you word this, it sounds like they are not investing back in at all and the future orders will amount to nothing....! Give a balanced view for once....!

  • Why I Believe Plug Power Is Now Heading Back To $8, Eventually On Its Way To $14 [View article]
    Why I don't believe what you've said, none of the "insiders" have bought a huge amount of shares here and as they all bought at the same time, this looks like a company bonus share save scheme....what are you showing me a chart of McDonalds for....are you for real....? Your charts are seriously flawed to give the impression that people should buy and give you another short option.....!

  • Notable earnings before Thursday’s open [View news story]
    Typical of CNBC to give someone like that a channel to air his slanderous views to short this stock and make a fortune in the process, CNBC should also be taken to task for not doing their homework on this guy's previous similar history.....unless he paid them to get on air....!

  • Apple urges shareholders vote against Icahn buyback proposal [View news story]
    Apple are not about to tell you what they are going to do with the money, unless you think it's a good idea to give Samsung/Google an even bigger head start on future products than they can get from their current industrial espionage techniques.....!
    Icahn needs to get as much return on his investment for his own shareholders by being a glorified gambler, Apple is one of his biggest bets for a short term return because he doesn't have the ability to run a company that actually produces things from ideas and innovation.
    I'd prefer the Buffet approach as they will still be around in 10 years time, while Icahn's team will be sitting on a beach somewhere living off the proceeds of their investors commission....!

  • Apple's Shareholder Program: The Day The Music Died [View article]
    Joseph, "an observation one could make" is that you are not qualified to make any recommendation to anyone about Apple, keep up the Seeking Alpha shorting on Apple is sooooooooooooo obvious. We are all aware of the companies recent decline and we also believe it unwarranted. If you want to add value......suggest the next big growth Tech company......and I"ll also give you a hundred negative reasons why you are wrong......blah blah.....!

  • Apple: Don't Panic, This Is An Opportunity [View article]
    You also failed to mention that Apple stopped giving conservative estimates a couple of years ago, to counter the criticism, they give as accurate estimates as possible. It seems that these analysts are still adding their own margin of correction upwards, so how can the company ever expect to give numbers that won't disappoint....? The press then print anything that grabs a headline, job done for the short shorts...........maybe they lowered their sales outlook for the next quarter to counter this adverts effect. Well done to the shorts for a while.....!

  • The ITC has delayed until Tuesday a verdict on whether Apple (AAPL) has breached Samsung (SSNLF.PK) patents in the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. The ITC, which was supposed to have ruled on Friday, didn't provide a reason for the postponement. In a preliminary decision in September, an ITC administrative law judge cleared Apple of violating the IP. [View news story]

  • The FTC issued recommendations on Friday to beef up privacy on mobile devices, including that developers should incorporate do-not-track capabilities in apps and other software. While the proposals aren't binding, they carry the weight of policy for the likes of Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT). Underscoring the FTC's commitment to privacy, it has fined social-networking app Path $800K for collecting personal information on children. [View news story]
    Oh no, that means we should sell Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, be safe and sell everything which means Samsung too, as there are so many reports of how Samsung have reached the top spot with selling come you never mentioned them in your brief........or do they not count when the main here is to manipulate Apple stock again.......!

  • "High above the Alps, my gnome is hearing that Apple’s shares are lower because of margin calls," writes Doug Kass as Apple (AAPL -1.3%) falls to $444 and cedes its market cap crown for now to Exxon Mobil. The FY13 EPS consensus has fallen to $45.07 from a pre-earnings level of $48.30, but that still puts shares at 6.6x forward EPS exc. cash. The dividend yield is now at 2.4%. (yesterday[View news story]
    You need to get this right, Apple have already set aside tax payments for profits made overseas and have accounted for these payments in each quarter. When they repatriate the cash, the tax payments have already been allocated out of it.
    Why is it that everyone is looking for non-existent cracks.........!!!!

  • The iPhone 5 is still supply-constrained at U.S. Apple Stores, says Piper's Gene Munster after polling 70 of them. He also found ongoing shortages at AT&T and Verizon, though Sprint's situation is said to be improving. Those comments are probably contributing to today's Apple (AAPL -2.7%) selloff, especially since Munster's Oct. 4 report on shortages proved accurate. On a more positive note, Munster's poll of 730 U.S. consumers found 55% of those planning to buy a smartphone indicating they want an iPhone 5. [View news story]
    It's a good day for the bears in any case, if rumour and confusion can cause this sort of drop in one day, then the whole financial marketing system is a circus.......don't waste your time on day trading and the glorified gamblers that these traders are.....the stock is sound and the next quarter will be the one to gauge Apple on. Short sellers were backed up to take out a target as big as Apple.....!

  • Apple's Flawed iPhone 5 Design And Its Effect On Stock Performance [View article]
    When you say that Samsung spent more than 10 x Apple on R&D did you mean on phones only, or cameras, DVD players, stereos, hoovers, TV's, Fridges etc ? They tend to diversify their ranges a bit more than Apple......!
