  • Apple Will Save $3 Billion In 2015 By Selling 16GB iPhone 6/6 Plus [View article]
    16 is enough for me but not my wife as she has a lot more apps (mostly games) & pics. I don't do many pics & only select apps that are not entertainment based.

  • Apple: A Pullback To Strongly Consider [View article]
    Whether you agree with Richbar or not, he correctly predicted the 9/2012 thru 2013 decline to my dismay. Long AAPL.

    Thanks Bill, always enjoy your articles on AAPL.

  • Apple: Misguided iPad Woes [View article]
    hahaha48... I believe you ridiculed me in the 1st qtr of 2013 for a post I made in Dec 2012 about AAPL hitting a $1,000 price. I provided no timeframe. At the time of your post, AAPL was post split $57-58. Well, my friend, it appears the stock has more than doubled since then & I have purchased additional shares < $50 a share. Just need another 22% to hit my goal. Looks like I should ridicule you now, but I don't do that.

    An advance apology if you are not the same hahaha48.

    Btw, you above comment is absolutely incorrect. I do know computers as I used Windows for over 15 years & only AAPL products for the last 5 & I have not encountered any virus whatsoever. Market share has absolutely nothing to do with viruses. It appears you are the one lacking understanding computers.

  • Apple Pay Won't Drive Much Direct Revenue, But It Could Boost iPhone Loyalty [View article]

    Actually it will be the merchant that benefits (not the other way as you state) as Oct 1, 2015 they will become responsible for fraudulaent credit card use if they are not on a platform that accepts, as 1 requirement, NFC capable checkout device.

    Currently, & I assume going forward, merchants typically lease a device from a service credit card processing company so additional dollars for adopting the new device will be very minimal if any at all.

  • Will Apple Top The Whisper Number This Quarter? [View article]
    I bet AAPL had a very good back to school period, including iPads.

  • Will The Samsung S6 Overtake The iPhone 6? Probably [View article]
    Exactly how much have you spent? Nothing unless your AGI is > $400k for a couple. We are a society & there are some that will always not do what you & I feel they should.

    Should they cease to exist?

    Champagne.... Do you have an ACA health plan? If you do, state what's wrong with it. If you don't, you are simply listening to those that you want to hear.

    i have an ACA individual plan & it is the best individual plan I have ever had. I get no subsidy & the most important element is that now I am one of millions that do rather than just 1 person that has been shafted by prior individual plans in the state I reside. Saved over $10k this year & I had no pre-existing conditions previously, I simply work for myself & didn't have the clout of a "group plan". Now I do.

    BTW, I do remember HPQ, I'm up more than 60% since purchase. Long AAPL.

  • Invest In The Millennials, Invest In Apple [View article]
    Thomas, best of luck to you. I enjoyed reading your article, thanks for sharing.

    Lastly, I agree with your thesis & I am, as a baby boomer with millennial sons, intrigued with habits of younger generation(s) as some have learned and had to deal with a tough economy at an unfortunate time in their life.

  • Investors Can't Believe The Apple Hype [View article]
    Thanks for your article.

    As an investor, at this point, I will only sell AAPL to keep the percentage level within my comfort zone. Also, I've always thought Mr Cook was and is a much better CEO than most commenters. Watched his recent interview & I believe more than before that he is a great CEO.

    It may or may not be time to take profits but you bias tone does not enhance your position.

    Equating Apple's net domination to slow broadband is beyond ridiculous.
