  • Apple's Plan To 'Take By Storm' The Smartphone Market In 2014 Materializes [View article]
    Revs were up 9.2% last fiscal year (ending 9-2013) vs prior year. Good growth for size of revs. They have forecasted flat growth for just ending qtr. We will see later this month.

  • Apple: Already Too Late To The Phablet Market [View article]
    "If so, why didn't the iPhone 5s sell well?"

    China sales of iPhone were up huge in last calendar qtr of 2013. Cook indicated that they sold more iPhones in China in January 2014 than any other month. Too early to tell for China Mobile but I expect 3.5-5 million for this last qtr which is a definite increase to EPS.

  • Competitors Are Like Piranhas Chewing Up Apple [View article]
    Same ole song for time of year. All negative March-July then Aug-Feb Apple kills 'em. Happened the last 3 years since everyone copies, anticipates products (watch) & puts out less quality products. Come Sept, Apple will blow em away once again.

    Apple does need a new product this year.

    I don't believe you know anything about Cook or what he thinks. Some people will attempt to make EVERYTHING a political issue. Nonsense.

  • Why Apple Stock Is A Long-Term Investment Opportunity Right Now [View article]
    Revs were up 9.2% for fiscal 2013 year vs prior year. Quite an accomplishment for a $171b annual rev corp. Agree that guidance for current quarter was flat.

    I have found over the years that those that base their investments mostly on political leaning tend to under perform. Good luck.

  • Apple's Prognosis: Range-Bound [View article]
    Don't forget the. $11.4b in deferred revenue of which $8.4b expected to be realized in the next 4 quarters, per earnings conference call.

    Also, retail stores were up 9% YoY including China Apple stores being up 31% for same period. This gives me a lot of confidence for the CM deal for this & subsequent quarters.

    I agree stock is range bound as WS insist on a new product category and more recently, better utilization of cash. FB deal did impact AAPL price, IMO.
