  • Impact On Apple If 2% - 4% Of China Mobile Customers Buy An iPhone [View article]
    You're not taking into account that the iPhone users already at China Mobile are using them at 2G which is not much better than a dumbphone. I have seen the figure as high as 45 million. When these customers have access to a new phone with both their 3G and 4G capability, I believe most will upgrade within 3 years. If 1/3 upgrades this year that would be 14 to 15 million new phones sold to them alone. Most would probably choose an iPhone.

  • 3 High-Yield Income Investments On Sale Now [View article]
    Well, the fund maybe sells only covered calls on stock that they deem at or above fair value? Something that they wouldn't mind selling in the first place at the strike price? I hold positions in PCI and UTF but never investigated BRG.

  • Smartphone Subsidies May End; Apple Might Suffer Withdrawal Symptoms [View article]
    My wife and I bought 2 iPhone 5S at T-Mobile. "Subsidies" is a farce word. It should be called scheduled payment. We have scheduled payment over 2 years on a hardware contract instead of a 2 year service contract with built in hardware charges. Our service added to the hardware contract monthly totals to about the same as a 2 year service contract from another carrier with phone "subsidies". We will own the 2 phones in 2 years and continue at the lower rate for service unlike other carriers. T-Mobile also has an "insurance" plan which has a hardware payment forgiveness clause in it. With this "insurance" policy customers can change phones more often than 2 years. In fact, every 6 months. T-Mobile is gaining customers from this marketing tactic. AT&T is about to switch its marketing in some similar manner. Both carriers will make similar revenue from customers going forward. People should never write dumb articles about things that they know little about as this author has.

    Furthermore, iPads can be had under similar "subsidies" from carriers. However, my wife and I are about to purchase 2 iPads with WiFi only and obtain a Mobile Hotspot for data from T-Mobile that can support up to 5 devices at one time including smartphones, tablets, desktop, and laptop. With that we can eliminate our PC internet costs and have a mobile connection when no WiFi is available. The iPads and PCs can also be joined to the iPhone as a Hotspot for data.

  • The Tile Shop: Like Crazy Eddie's, But With An Undisclosed Related Party And A Chinese Twist [View article]
    I'll take some tulips. I know nothing about this company, but you will find that Mr Yu's job is to deceive rather than inform. I suggest that you do very thorough due dilligence, particularly on the ethics of others involved. I have.

    Oh the horror, possible family members working for the family business of TTS which is now public. That's news or even new to business? I know many smaller public companies with family members as employees and none are like the Antar family of criminals, none remind me of Crazy Eddie. Some family members even do very good work for the companies. I believe that Edsel worked for Ford Motor Co. A lot of smoke and mirrors.

    Excellent investigation? Mr Dan Yu knows nothing about investigation nor accounting. He does know alot about taking small truths and making them look like big bad "smoking guns" and "red flags".

    Mr Toro, you are being dissed at ValueWalk for a miss on a Chinese investment today. I suggest that you combat it. It looks like the shorts are using it.

  • NQ Mobile Using Sino-Forest Tactics To Delay The Inevitable? [View article]
    Anonymous author, Goldbaum Research, supports Muddy Waters. What a surprise. Anonymous authors on SA are a dime a dozen anymore and seem to be always short sellers. And they say trust me.

  • Muddy Waters Initiates Coverage on NQ Mobile Inc. [View article]
    Top-Flight to me does not mean the hired Geek kid down the street. It means a reputable organization with impeccable credentials working independently from all parties involved and not for one party. But hey my first comment here was deleted because I called the report speculative without evidence in no uncertain terms.

  • Apple - Time To Take Profits As It Cedes Computing Market To Google [View article]
    The 5S is underwhelming? Right. You should own one first before saying such things. I do and it's far from underwhelming. It is a great product that is simple to use. And the size is perfect; not too small but not too big to fit next to your face. I can't imagine using a larger screen to make calls. The A7 64 bit chip is lightening. The iOS 7 is great and isn't a patched up version of an unsecure Android operating system. Their new iPad Air with A7 will be similar and sell like hotcakes to a starving crowd. AAPL is far too cheap yet.

    At least West Coast Labs is real with a real location unlike anonymous people such as MW engaged top-flight security software engineers to analyze this product. "top-flight" maybe if they are verified as such and exist.

    Shorts piled in after a big loss in share price when Goldman Sachs' buyout deal failed. There are millions of shares short that are now underwater. Around 6 million shares were shorted after the price plunge. Most were sold short below $12.50.

  • The iPhone Will Be In Third Place In 2015 [View article]
    Predictions fail for a good reason; they are based upon faulty reasoning and assumptions. Well over 2 years ago a so called tech guru wrote an article that brought down the price of Intel shares by 10%. That article stated that Apple will no longer use Intel chips in 2 years time. Well it's over 2 years and they continue to use Intel chips in their new products. I could say that in 2 years Apple will be the #1 phone producer because the world is growing wealthier and cobble some graphs and charts together, but I won't since I don't know the future.
