  • Valuation Shortcuts For Apple [View article]
    All you mention is theory not appplicable to many companies specially those with brand power. I can name a lot but just mention the luxury brands or car makers like BMW or, a high quality popular car maker like VW.

  • Will The Samsung S6 Overtake The iPhone 6? Probably [View article]
    At last, one person fell in MB's trap & thinks that MB's manipulated stats are exact.
    I suggest that you investigate on the data put forward by MB & find by yourself the truth.

    I think that, at least for this Q, Apple will not be able to supply as many IP6 as the chinese are willing to buy.

  • Apple roundup: Chinese orders, Apple Watch, Apple Pay [View news story]
    220K points are only between the named companies, there are all others not mentioned.
    Besides, having NFC chip doesn't solve any problem on itself. The secure payment system (secure chip & touchID) is the key factor for adoption.

    Subsidies doesn't mean you buy cheaper. You pay the full price & even more in most cases through the 2 years contract.

  • EU: Apple Tax Deals Granted By Ireland Broke State Rules [View article]
    @ author. Please read more carefully the EU statement
    Ireland has one month to reply to EU not Apple. The Irish government's reply will be analyzed & replied to. This procedure will take years to finalize.
    The irish government has already said that Apple has not had any tax advantage compared to other equivalent companies.
    The irish corporate tax is 12.5% when the benefits are generated in Ireland. But when it comes to imported benefits from operations outside Ireland, the tax rate is just 2%.

    @MB, not only you do misinterpret facts & statistics but you persist on pretending that Apple manipulates the numbers.

  • Apple's Incredible 10 Million Unit Sales-Fact [View article]
    Thanks for the article. Well reasoned and well documented. A very good reply to MB's accusatory article.
    I read MB's articles in order to find out some truth against Apple which an Apple pro might not discover. Some of his arguments sound plausible but he is too much busy bashing & accusing, exaggerating & distorting facts that finally all his works becomes irrelevant.
    For instance, take his market share argument. He is right when he claims that Apple's market share is low and has to be cured but, he is wrong by claiming that the market share is the only force driving a company's success. A few percent higher market share for Apple will be a very good thing but Apple's present market share shall be adjusted & take care of the importance of some segments of the market compared to the others. a few % higher market share will have a huge effect on Apple''s stock price. I think that this will be acheived now that the bigger screen Iphones are in the market.
