  • Apple: It Is All About Improving Margins [View article]
    Your assumptions are all based on unproven theories & your feelings but not fact & figures. May be you are going to be right one day in future but, todays facts and figures proves you are wrong.
    But, thanks for pointing out all these long term concerns. Medium term Apple's future seems bright. For the long term one should judge during the next one to 5 years.

  • What Does Euro Denominated Debt Mean For Apple? [View article]
    Apple's Eurobond will serve for foreign use. Agree with you that if Apple uses that money for sharepurchase, then they shall repay that from $ repariated or earned in USA.

    I would have agreed with you if you had not put such a hatresse in presenting your arguments which sound also void of any sain reasoning.

  • Pouring A Little Cold Water On Apple Investors [View article]
    I usually read bearish articles on my investments with more attention looking for arguments against my bullish decisions. I just want to cover every angle & see if & why I am wrong.
    This article didn't give me a single fact. At least MB has his "market share theory" & puts some figures behind his words.
    This author says, Apple watch will not be a success because he is not wearing one. Or Customers have to obey what a retailer dictates.
    One of the reasons that Apple sells so many devices is their customers friendly approach & their after sales service.
    As a medium size printing co CEO, we had some 20 macs for our production section & 15 Pc's for our administration and sales sections. Our running cost for those Pc's were so high and the after sales service was so bad that finally we preferred to replace our Pc's by macs. The longevity is 2 years more, the maintenance cost inexistent and no need for costly malware protection softwares. The 2nd hand price of the devices pay for the additional initial investment.

  • Apple Pay Looks Vastly Better Positioned Than MCX [View article]
    90% of those 80% do not perform as smartphone and do not have secure elements such as touchid or secure chip.

  • Record iPhone Shipments May Not Mean Market Share Gains [View article]
    @MB, Who shall we beleive? You & your market share theory which doesn't take into account what matters: the profit share or, the Apple management who, with actual sales figures claim that they are selling more IOS devices & in many markets by more than 50% to new comers to the IOS world. I for one prefer to beleive Apple rather than you. But even if those devices were sold to existing IOS users, the old ones are changing hands and are sold to new comers. Have you ever checked the 2nd hand market of IOS devices? An IP3GS has a 2nd hand price of more than 100$ in many countries. Those 2nd hand devices go to new comers to the IOS ecosystem.
    The mats are there to be manipulated. Most often, the market poll companies forget to mention the ERROR MARGIN of their statistic figures. As a mathematician, i know how important these ERROR MARGINS are important. Depending on who has ordered the study or what final goal they want to achieve, they present the lower or the higher segment of their statistic figures. If a statitis result is say 20% +/- 3%, they can mention 17% or 23% ommiting to give the ERROR MARGIN. There is where you are fooled or, if you are aware of this fact, you try to fool your readers & this becomes....

  • 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.
