  • (Almost) Kudos To You, Mr. Cook [View article]
    "And developers are noticing that, with some already prioritizing Android over iOS. ".......not what I read in the article. Thinking about it isn't doing it.
    What you forget is that many Asian companies gain market share by cutting prices and reducing their income to zero or less. And why praise android when Google gave it away to Samsung and HTC for free? Everyone knows that android is less secure than iOS. I'm sure developers are equally aware of that. And consider that if someone goes for a cheap Asian smartphone with a no-cost operating system, they probably aren't going to pay much for an app. And that app is probably just going to be bootlegged for free in Asia. Market share in China is over-rated. Tell us how much income this market share generates if you can even get current income statements that are audited.

  • Apple's iPhone 5C Is Not Cheap Enough [View article]
    What carriers care about is if you use your phone and how much data do you use. iPhone users use their phones more than other users. In the long run, carriers will get more money from iPhone consumers than from others.

  • Salesforce.com: Aggressive Accounting And Public Relations Remain A Worry [View article]
    You people better be careful holding these bubble stocks when the government starts arguing again about the debt limit.
    There are many stocks that are down so I think it is safer to buy those and get out of the ones that are obviously in a bubble.

  • Is This The Right Time For Bulls To Enter IBM? [View article]
    IBM has returned 9.58% annualized return over the past 10 years, 16.7% annualized return over the past 20 years, 8.5% annualized return over the past 30 years, 8.77% over the past 40 years, 9.55% over the past 50 years.
    Long-term is a good way to invest in IBM.
    If you invested $10,000 50 years ago in IBM, and you didn't sell it in any of the crashes, you now would have $958,291.

    I agree. And when Cramer criticizes Apple or IBM, I think we may know why he use to live in his car.

    You can make a lot more money buying IBM, or any good stock for that matter, buy buying when it is way down then when it is up high. Don't look at the short term if you are holding your stocks for the long-term. Look at 5 to 10 years. You want to buy when other people are selling.

    Apple is not in the cellphone business. The iPhone is a smartphone. The emerging market isn't the growth market for smartphones. That market is in the highly-educated developed markets who need and use a lot of data.
    When emerging markets have customers who can afford data plans and buy smartphones, they will provide contracts for them. Otherwise it is a mute point to discuss the price of the smartphone. The cost of the iPhone is just one small part of it.

  • Apple Event Will Send The Bears Into Hibernation [View article]
    Coming on the heels of news that Apple is possibly looking to release new Apple TV software on Sept. 18 alongside the iOS 7 launch, fresh rumors are pointing to a hardware upgrade that could come as soon as October.

    Many had something to say immediately after the announcement but the jerk from CSFB was the one mentioned on tv.

    Carl Icahn bought more Apple today. He makes good calls in the stock market and has made millions.

    IBM lost $8 from around $190 to $182 because of Garcha's downgrade on Aug 6. Now if you look at IBM's stock price it is back to where it was that day. So you need to pick your price points if you are a buyer of AAPL.

    "The firm downgraded Apple shares to Neutral from Outperform, and the firm has a $525 price target. Credit Suisse’s downgrade basically says “so much for the low end” and is lowering the firm’s 2014 earnings expectations as a result. Kulbinder Garcha said."

    Once again you see the market react to Kulbinder Garcha who caused the selloff in IBM stock. I suggest that you take a look at what happened when he told investors repeatedly to buy RIMM at $60. He was hyping Apple too around $660. I looked up all of CS's top stock picks for this year and only 4 out of 12 were beating the S&P 500 index. Some of them are performing very poorly. UBS just copies the same upgrades/downgrades as they are both in Switzerland and probably use the same analysts. I suggest that when they give you a price dip, you buy it. And when they give you a price bump, you sell it. They are not who you want to be listening to for your long-term holdings.

    Buy when there is blood in the street, just don't tell anyone. Yesterday, one of the Fast Money analysts said to not buy Apple until $460. Surprisingly, we are about there.
    Now read this article. It appears to me that adding $5 to earnings in 2014 means that analysts have to raise their earnings expectations. And Apple will then have a P/E around 12 with 18% earnings growth for next year; not many stocks like that with a 2.5% dividend.

  • Apple's iPhone 5C Is Not Cheap Enough [View article]
    Apple claims the iPhone 5C supports more LTE bands than any other smartphone in the world, making it compatible with the recently launched 4G networks from O2 and Vodafone - something the current iPhone 5 is not. There's also dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

    Why should it be cheap? Samsung is nothing more than a Korean copycat. If you want cheap, buy cheap... If you want a premium product, you have to pay for it. Even the Chinese know this.

    Luxury car brands sell at a premium in China. So do other luxury products as according to a survey at KPMG entitled Global Reach of China Luxury, 88 percent of respondents in China indicated they would be willing to pay a premium for luxury brands that display high quality and durability.

    I guess all these years of IBM trying to improve margins for Wall Street was just a boondoggle.
