  • Sell Apple And Put Up Your Defenses [View article]
    is STD a pseudonym for MB???

    Why on earth would anyone short AAPL when the gains have been so stupendous?

    I just got done buying two new Apple phones and an IPAD; will be getting a couple Apple watches when they come out...assuming others are as prescient as me, I am adding to my share count...earnings are the name of this game and Apple is the name in this game!

  • Apple: Does The Party End In 2015? [View article]
    Mr. Cho:
    You have done a masterful job on refuting the "bear case" of congratulations and compliments.
    I am the kind of Apple user whom MB does not realize is out here by the millions:
    new IPAD Air 2, new IPhone 6s, new IPhone 6 for daughter # 1, new IPhone 6s for daughter #2, Mac laptop for wife and awaiting the Apple Watch eagerly since I shall be purchasing at least two (2) of them when they arrive in Spring, 2015; last but surely not least: AAPL stock which has done spectacularly!
    I was late to the Apple bandwagon but am catching up nicely...thank Steve/Tim!!

  • Apple: Misguided iPad Woes [View article]
    Just bought a new Apple I Pad Air 2...gave former model to granddaughter; No, the IPAD is not passe; it is quality at a quality price! Why?
    I have gotten rid of my former laptop and tabletops; portable Apple QWERTY keyboard folds up and goes with me and my IPAD everywhere, in my "man bag"!
    No virus, no outdated software needing replacing e.g. Microsoft, etc...
    Please, Apple, just keep on making the best there is...I will buy it!

  • Apple: Why I'm Not Sold On iPad Cannibalization [View article]
    To illustrate your salient point, I just bought a brand new IPAD AIR 2...replaced a two year old (still good) machine which I am giving to my niece for Christmas...

    Phone IS different usage from IPAD; I have a full QWERTY keyboard for work with this IPAD and LOVE the "hunt and peck" but portable...:)

  • There Is No Chance Apple Pay Will Disrupt The Payments Ecosystem [View article]
    You sound like the "typical" naysayer who doesn't see the handwriting on the wall:

    1) Apple has destroyed other "systems" before e.g. music;
    2) Apple could buy AmEx and run it as a subsidiary;
    3) Apple could put their own devices into WalMart free of charge;

    I woud NOT bet against Apple destroying the Visa/MC duopoly...stay tuned!

  • I'm Already Looking At Apple's Q1 FY15 Earnings Report [View article]
    AAPL is the new MSFT! Buy it and put it away both for the dividend and the capital gains. Apple Pay is going to be the "new credit card" meaning that it will provide an increasing flow of cash going forward as it takes over the role of plastic...

    And don't forget the prolific minds of Apple developers for who would have ever thought that Apple would have gotten out of "hardware with a software core" to go with a "software covering a hardware core"?

    Apple is my largest and by far my best position...Apple bears, anyone???

  • An Apple Bear's Wonderful Misadventure Analyzing Apple's Prospects [View article]
    I and millions like me, both in the US and overseas, buy and keep on buying the best cutting edge technology company there currently is viz AAPL.

    Great dividend, great product, great leadership, great profit margins, great innovation, great market share...for my money, and AAPL IS my largest holding,
    so I will continue to buy and hold this "best of breed"!

    Naysayers like Blair are just part of the business of picking winners; in fact, they are my best contrary indicator! :)

  • 3 Signs That Apple's Next Breakout May Be Its Last [View article]
    Are you, by any chance, Michael Blair's son-in-law? I noted that he "liked" the article since it is the same sort of "rot got" as he puts out...

    Go, ahead, short AAPL and live to regret it...Apple Pay has not even begun to fight yet and you already have written its obituary!

  • Samsung Is Sinking, While Apple Garners Robust Demand In China [View article]
    As Hewlett Packard comes out of the Dow and AAPL goes in, Michael Blair is FINALLY getting "old fashioned religion" i.e. go with the Winner, AAPL!
    Actually, I do believe MB has a "fever"...hope the patient comes around as he is fun to read: always wrong but enjoyable for a few laughs :)

  • If The Apple Watch Fails, Does Tim Cook Get Fired? [View article]
    Did Michael Blair "ghost write" this???
    Doomsayer and gloomsayers, enough already!
    Cook "only" gave us a 7 for 1 split, a dividend and dividend increase and a larger IPhone...the "report of his demise is highly exagerrated"!
    Must there always be someone who is a "bear" on AAPL? It surely helps those of us who are long as we continue to buy all that comes forth...God bless Cookie!!!

  • Bill And Chuck's Incredible Journey - Apple's Blowout Launch Weekend Revisited [View article]
    Mr Blair: would you please tell me where I might find a new Apple 6 phone?
    I have looked at stores galore (Best Buy still has none; ditto WalMart) and they are all very pleasant when they say "Sorry, all sold out"!
    Where do you get your pessimism from but better yet "Why do you continue to be so pessimistic about Apple?"

  • Michael Blair's Analysis Of Apple's 10 Million First Weekend Sales Is Way Off Base [View article]
    Blair is never going to be wrong!
    Blair's baloney continues to spew forth; I will never again give him the honor of a "page view"; consequently, I am so happy that you thoroughly and completely rebutted Blair. When a guy has "an axe to grind", one knows ahead of time what kind of hatchet job he will do...that's Blair.
    As for me, I can't wait to get a 6s and an Apple Watch...can't come soon enough along with Apple Pay! :)

    "Ugly duckling" you are not; rather, a "white swan"!
    Blair baloney I no longer pay any attention to as I already know what he is going to not understand why SA allows his unfounded baloney to be printed unless it is just to get page views of folks who get their juices going?

    If it wasn't for Bears, we Bulls would be having a harder time making what we are making!
    Yuppeers, it takes Bears to make a market...thx for your cynicism!
    I LOVE the new Apple products and can't wait for the Apple Watch...did you not know that there is a copyright problem with the name "IWatch"???

  • Apple Pay - Nice But Not A Big Deal [View article]
    Why do I waste my time reading Blair? So I can add more shares to my holdings of AAPL, now my largest position! He is absolutely wrong every time...
    I am buying a new 6+ ASAP and plan on buying EVERYthing via Apple Pay...
