  • Here's Why Apple Is Weak Since Earnings [View article]
    Paulo, the mistake that many analysts have made is that the one trick pony negates the fact that Apple,like many others, are working on the next pony.
    The iPhone,iPad, now iwatch are examples..yes

  • Carl Icahn Is Wrong, Apple Is Not Worth $240 Today [View article]
    Richbar, your thesis seems to be consistent with your past predictions,and most know that you have been,shall we say,a wee bit too conservative...and wrong.However, that's what makes a market.

    Bud..The only take away from your statements are,"ifs,ands and buts,were candy and nuts, the the children would be very happy."
    On the other hand, some would say Icahns' statements were equally speculative, but his track record may be a little better than yours.
    Cheers.

    One has also consider that technology is not standing still, and the economies of oil production will change further.... meaning lower costs.

    Paulo is Amazon like Tesla, unimportant too. Apple makes more profit I suspect in a few days, than Amazon has, its entire life. High P/E and little profit.Mainly a rhetorical subjective question that really needs no response.

    The LA School district fiasco is a failure of incompetent district management, and has nothing to do with the efficacy of the Apple product.

    Higher margin,lower volume business is not a short term proposition, and Apple has been doing it for a long time.Other examples of that business plan have also proved successful for decades.Porsche for one, the most profitable car company in the world.
    On the other hand, Apple has shown a high volume, high margin business is also sustainable.The iPhone since 2007.The latest iPhone sales figures from China are mind blowing,and the best seller to boot.Who figured on that.

  • Why The U.S. Economy Is Ready For Liftoff [View article]
    Yes,the aging demographics are a big concern for sustained accelerating growth.Lots of unknowns to bet on "lift off".To me, it still remains a so,so economy for an extended period.However, I believe falling of a cliff is equally doubtful.Same ole,same ole.Things could be worse.

    Paulo, because the 6 and 6S were so successful upon launch,does that mean that anything less than the stellar reports of the last 2 quarters mean stagnation ? Glass half full ,or half empty ? Or maybe the glass is the wrong size.The market sentiment seems to say Apple is still a superlative company until the metrics say it is not.Others like yourself may feel different,and that is ok as that is what makes a market.

    I believe Paulo was stating that only one Apple product was showing year over year growth. However, in a tape that has been showing a lot of weakness all round, I suggest that some will choose to bank some profits, and one should not rush to make judgements that there is anything weak about the Apple story,until metrics show that to be the case. To me, the story looks very good,and I am looking for a reason to trim my Apple holdings, and so far not seeing one.

  • What Apple's Buybacks Mean For Investors [View article]
    So called day traders are an insignificant share of the market. Most trading is done by large holders, or institutions,and their trades are largely done by computers based upon the program or algorithm of the day.Especially on a stock which has massive liquidity such as AAPL.

  • Apple: Zenith Behind Us, Nadir On The Horizon [View article]
    Apple has a history of selling off after earnings,as do many stocks.Some managers said they sold off to bank profits,and who can argue with that.
    However ,they universally said they would buy back when the stock pulls back.Novice investors should always look at the story, and fundamentals of any stock, and re evaluate constantly.In Apples case the story and fundamentals are as good and continue to be, as any stock has been....Mr market does strange things that may not make sense, but one has to consider the market is controlled by algorithms,and logic of humans means nothing.On the other hand ,that's what makes a market and gives us opportunities.
