  • Apple's iPad Problem [View article]
    This article is a weak example of typical naysing seen here even when APPL is flying with tailwinds!!!

    It is a complete lost of time to argue anything against this kind of mindset...

    Sorry for the time lost one more time!

  • Quantifying Apple's Strategic Errors [View article]
    I agree with. Jjkiam who wrote :

    "More Blah Blah Blah from Blair
    Endless drivel all the time
    SA take note! Please ask this contributor to find something new to talk about.
    Now we are treated to ridiculous speculation about a completely made up
    Alternative reality! And this is supposed to represent SA investment advice?"

    My opinion : mind fucking stuff with the courtesy of Seeking Alpha moderation team!

    Very sick, in fact. A new diagnotic category for him : "Pervasive argumentative disorder" or "obsessional-masochistic" spectrum delusion!

  • Quantifying Apple's Strategic Errors [View article]
    When I saw the title of this article in my email box I told to myself : " oh, there is only one guy here on SA so autistic to write that kinda stuff ..." Nothing more to say. It is useless to read only one sentence.

  • Why The Apple Bears Have Got It Wrong And Here Is The Proof [View article]
    We must let AAPL bears free from insightful analyses like this one. It is a very huge lost of time to try to convince them they are stubborn and unfair, from a fondamental stand point, almost in every case they make. The problem is not about opinions they express but about a chronic psychological bias against Apple that drives the finality of their thoughts... Overall, a lot of them are more interesting for sociologists, psychologists and anthropologists than for market analysts!
    Have a nice saturday all.

  • Demographics, Manias And The Short Case For Apple Explained [View article]
    I don't know exactly what is the problematic mindset of this SA author but I would be curious to appreciate a complete assesment on the topic. It wouldn't be so complex after all but it would require some advice for sure. Mr Blair can demonstrate recurring argumentative performances along his articles here but there is something basically "silly" about his 'thinking style', to say the least... Micheal's lines are not for market analysists nor economists and not for the average Joe!
    Good luck to all of us with this stuff.

  • Apple Would-Be Shorts: Bide Your Time, Apple's Run Will Be Over Soon Enough [View article]
    Another nice piece of "naysaying" by "nobody" with zero factual and relevant data to predict apocalyptical prophecies about Apple's future. I repeat one more time : I am really extremely tired to be acquainted with subjective and arbitrary comments like this one on Seeking Alpha. Come back to the facts about this company and start working honestly with several of them. Quality criteria would be applied as a filter in order to prevent such crapy lines to reach an audience!

  • Apple Is In Deep Trouble: A Reformed Bull Speaks Out [View article]
    Naysayers are usually not too brights about FACTS. This article is a pure example of naysaying without facts. This guy changed his mind about Apple within a very narrow time frame which is, on a psychological standpoint, not credible and even, a kind of symptom of something that doesn't rely on AAPL and more on intra-individual processes... Have a nice day all.

  • Shame On You, Apple [View article]
    Hey Dude Georg,

    Adam and Eve were much more lucky than you man, they never vomited the Apple after lunch time, which is not the case for you!

    AAPL bashing and/or votiming here on SA has no effect in the real financial world and no more in Heaven in Earth.

    This article may provide some examples about what is the true meaning of a " moral judment " for kindergarten audiences.

    Best regards

  • Hedge Funds May Hate Apple, But Consumers Are Still In Love [View article]
    Great article! Congratulations!

    This one really help me to forget those boring ones written by Apple's naysayers during the last few months!

    There is so much self-appointed coaches and back-seat drivers here saying anything off!

    As long as so many investors will think "bearish-on-long" and "bullish-on-short" about AAPL - the company will reward the long players : the rest of the game is NOISE.

    Have a nice day all!

  • Why Investing In Apple Is Riskier Than You Think [View article]
    The buzz around Apple and its shares here is really a boring one!
    The last fews months here in SA were not very rich from a factual standpoint... I am really sad to realize that we must read around 75% of real crappy stuff Apple in order to decipher a mere - may be - 10 percent of useful thoughts for investors and/or traders.
    May be a break from my AAPL stock alert is now indicated?
    From a long Apple :-(

  • The Galaxy S IV shows the contrast between Apple's (AAPL) minimalist approach to smartphones and Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) "maximalist" approach, writes Forbes' Anthony Wing Kosner. Whereas Apple carefully weighs the impact of product changes and lets the iPhone speak for itself, Samsung is constantly making big upgrades while promising its phones will change your life. Kosner thinks Apple's low-key approach resonates better in the U.S., but TechCrunch's John Biggs argues Samsung's approach has its strengths. "[Samsung] figured out that people didn’t care about specs. Instead, they care about use cases." [View news story]
    That kind of merchandisation of smart phone use and web browsing by selling information collected from visual habits (and other behaviors) of people must be strongly disapproved by every free human being in the universe!

    The complicity between Google and Samsung seems so obvious here.

    Some of these so-called 'innovative' features on devices and their apps / operating systems MUST be FORBIDDEN by the law everywhere! That's it and that's all.

    We need a free web experience. Not tricky technological espionage.

    :-) How are you feeling now within your 'bean counter's conciousness dear Google yeahsayers?

  • Apple (AAPL) is likely to more than double its dividend this year, says Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty after talking to CFO Peter Oppenheimer. Corporate Finance 101: She suggests the company can get around the issue of cash held overseas by funding payouts with low-interest debt rather than repatriation. Shares +0.7% premarket. [View news story]
    Apple Inc. must get rid of the volatilty of their market cap. Asap.
    The swing trading of shorters, hedge funds, and other pirates must be strongly discouraged... These kinds of ownership of AAPL are perverse ones. Why not promote long positionning among sharehoders with the implementation of a special monthly dividend program for shareholders as long as 'x' months? ... along with the regular dividends for classical insecure-swinger-gambl... people?

  • Apple (AAPL) roundup: 1) Folowing a year in which the iPhone 5, iPad Mini, and new iMac all saw big supply constraints due to their use of advanced designs/materials, Paul Kedrosky thinks Apple's design team has gained too much influence relative to its manufacturing team (video). 2) Apple VP John Couch recently met with Turkish President Abdullah Gul. They reportedly talked about a deal to supply up to 15M iPads to Turkish students. 3) Apple has won a patent for a plastic-bodied phone with no home button or front camera. Is this the rumored cheaper iPhone[View news story]
    No need for 2 cameras on the same device. We simply cannot use both simultaneously! A high quality front camera may do the job for conferencing as well as for photo & video shooting :-) Mechanical front and side buttons may be cancelled too! Infrared, touch, voice or accelerometer inputs may do the job.
    No need for an 'Apploid' cheaper iPhone too.

  • "Apple absolutely has to make an iPhone with a bigger screen," iPhone 5 owner Henry Blodget declares. While Apple (AAPL +0.1%) insists on using relatively small display sizes to guarantee effective one-handed iPhone use, devices such as Samsung's Galaxy S III (4.8" display) make the iPhone 5 look "puny and sad in comparison."  The iPhone 5's display size doesn't seem to be affecting its U.S. position much, as Strategy Analytics' numbers demonstrate, but international markets appear to be a different story. [View news story]
    @Marinmaven : Respectfully I cannot agree when you make a comparison between Apple and Honda as examples of top notch brands :-( I am 55 years old and personally owned 2 Hondas (2002,2004), 3 Toyotas (1981,2001,2002), 2 Fords, 4 Volkswagens, 1 Chevrolet, 1 Dodge and many more like Audi, Porsche, Mercedes, Triumph, etc. - but no Kia & Subaru.
    Overall, Hondas are may be as reliable as Toyota I may admit but these cars aren't as solid as Toyota cars. With the Civic, the driver's experience is quite poor as a whole, but simply bad in winter (even with the best winter tires)... To be short : Apple as no equivalent these years in the car market. Even deluxe car brands are slightly loosing reliability. This phenomenon is related mostly to the growing presence of electronic equipment (useful or gadgets) offered by car makers in order to seduce buyers. Cheap electronic components are the rule - even with deluxe cars - in order to protect margins and enlarge market shares of companies.
    I am an Apple consumer because of the simplicity, the reliability, and the overall quality of their products pipeline. I may suggest to the R&D guys at Apple to study why and how it would be possible to develop a 'kind of' iOS module (central processing unit) for cars as a fix for cheap, unreliable and disseminated electronic car components :-) A partnership with Mercedes or Porsche would be welcomed here. The area of disseminated gadgets will soon be over. The strenght of the iEcosystem will soon improve many new dimensions of the human experience. Wait and see.
