  • Apple Hits Another All-Time High: Does It Matter? [View article]
    What everyone seems to be missing is that IBM is going to write apps and market Apple products to their enterprise customers. This is huge! I talked with an IT person at Delloite on Sunday and they are going to be getting in Apple computers. Up to now, they have been buying only Dell and HP. He also has been to France recently and said the iPhone is huge there. I told him about my Apple stock and he said it was a very good idea. I'm not sure where the stock is going short-term but it seems to me people should be buying the stock rather than selling it.

  • Why The IBM-Apple Agreement Could Fail [View article]
    Research from ComScore shows that Android and Apple now hold more than 93 percent of market share (Android with 52 percent vs. Apple's 41 percent), with Windows Phone 8 (3.4 percent) and BlackBerry (2.9 percent) competing for the third spot.

    Probably because iphone users use the internet more than others and download more apps.

  • Apple Stabs BlackBerry In The Heart [View article]
    When these hundred Apps are used we will see who the real winner is and that will be IBM. Then every mobile vendor will be begging for their device to have apps and for IBM to give them a deal too.

    IBM more than doubled their mobility revenue in the last quarter so business is improving for IBM before the Apple deal. That's probably why Cook agreed with the deal. IBM supports many devices other than Apple. This is just a new deal with Apple, not a change in support for other devices and operating systems.

    If you are recommending Blackberry, then tell us how the mobility revenue is growing. The big problem I have with Blackberry stock is the net loss and how long they are going to lose money.

  • Xiaomi Is A Big Threat To Apple [View article]
    If it's like the rest of the "made in China" recycling companies should do well. And Apple attorneys too.

  • Apple Is Acquiring A Fad - Not Quality - And That Is Troubling [View article]
    Apple had to do this to respond to the recent Sprint Spotify deal. It's about having an offering for streaming. If you look at the recent reviews of streaming options, Beats matches Spotify in catalog size, quality, and in price they charge users. Beats is profitable and with a cheap price to earnings ratio. I don't believe Spotify is. Most likely private investors of Spotify are trying to damage the perception of this deal because I think Spotify's valuation has been coming down. You have to realize that the big money has been already made before companies are listed on the exchanges. I think Apple has made a good decision to go into streaming. Their customers will enjoy the new service. The more services Apple provides, the more they will lock in their customers.

  • Has The Apple Fallen? [View article]
    I haven't researched the issue but my experience is that there is a short term dip but a longer term gain. The short term dip does go against the grain. Perhaps it matters on what else is going on. The Ex Date - June 9, 2014 - the date determined by NASDAQ when Apple common shares will trade at the new split-adjusted price. A 7-for-1 split means that six additional shares of stock are issued for each share in existence on the Record Date, June 2, 2014.

    I'm waiting for the stock split but will then add to my shares. I'm hoping the stock split will cause knee-jerk selling. I think this stock is safe to own for the summer and years ahead.

  • Sifting The Apple Rumors: Television [View article]
    "Even Big Media conglomerates such as Comcast (CMCSA), whose cable operation provides broadband Internet to millions of subscribers, are threatened by Internet content delivery." We've been hearing this for some time but it doesn't come to fruition as Comcast keeps generating ever greater revenue and earnings.
    Take a look
    http://on-msn.com/1p3aB8M
    Sales go up every year. Net income goes up every year.
    This quarter sales will be up 11% and earnings growth of 25%.
    http://yhoo.it/1p3aBWu
    You can certainly tell it from my bill as Comcast has the fastest internet in my area and we are addicted to all the recent movies on demand.

    Both CMCSA and AAPL should be bought now. I can see why Apple wants Comcast to offer their AAPL tv box. It should be good for both companies. Comcast has the cable and the content, and most likely Apple has as a better box.

  • Evidence That Apple Intends To Start Mobile Payment Processing [View article]
    Apple took care of addressing security issues by incorporating biometric authentication into its latest iPhone. Apple has over 600 million user accounts, most of which are already linked to a credit card. That's more than Amazon and Paypal combined.
    On December 6, 2013, it was reported that Apple activated iBeacons across its 254 US retail stores.
    http://zd.net/1eqJFg4
    On January 6, 2014, Los Angeles-based app developer inMarket launched the first multi-retailer rollout of iBeacons, to 150+ grocery stores in Seattle, San Francisco and Cleveland.

  • What Is Apple's Stock Worth? [View article]
    People looking to get into the stock market should pick their stocks from some good companies who are under-valued. You won't make as much money long term buying the ones that are at their highs.

  • What Is Apple's Stock Worth? [View article]
    Trefis says Apple is worth $625
    http://bit.ly/UPeLjU#

    I read an interesting article today:
    "Get Ready for the Mobile Payment Boom For years, I’ve contested that mobile payments would never take off until the security issues were resolved. Apple took care of that by incorporating biometric authentication into its latest iPhone. So in order to take over the world, all Tim Cook needs to do now is start letting people use Touch ID to buy anything they want. Think about it. Apple lays claim to one of the most valuable assets in the world – over 600 million user accounts, most of which are already linked to a credit card.
    That’s more than Amazon.com (AMZN) and PayPal combined, based on BI Intelligence’s estimates from late 2013. So by letting users pay for goods and services from their iPhone with their Apple ID, verified by Touch ID, Apple would instantly dominate the mobile payment market. While it wouldn’t be as simple as flipping a switch, it’d be pretty darn close. And it would definitely be much easier for Cook than trying to come up with a completely new, must-own consumer electronic device."
