  • Will Apple's Growth Stop In 2013? [View article]
    I have not stated that "purchasing shares hits the company finances" which you insist for the share purchaser to be an investor in the company. I showed you that the share price is an indicator of the value of the company and when you purchase share the transaction is like one partner selling his portion of the partnership and thereby the person who bought the partnership portion became an investor in the company. Now it comes out ( from this response ) that you have to be an institution holding millions of shares to be an investor. So a large share owner is a large owner and a smaller share owner is a small investor! Peace!

  • Apple (AAPL) -1.3% after Canaccord's Mike Walkley, a long-time bull, slashes his FQ3 iPhone sales estimate to 29.34M from 33.58M, and his FQ4 estimate to a mere 26.11M from 33.58M. Walkley, who is nonetheless raising his PT to $740, says recent checks indicate iPhone sales have "modestly declined in certain developed markets," and expects this trend to continue due to new Android launches, Verizon's LTE promos, and iPhone 5 anticipation. FQ2 results are due on Tuesday.  [View news story]
    deer... : you are absolutely light in your assertions but my issue is that Mr. W is concerned about FQ 3 and 4. For AAPL where everyday is a new day how could anybody see so far ahead in the future. Does he talk about penetration in China and the intro of itv or iphone 5, o he does not and he increase the price target. No, No, I do not think today's and tomorrow's price action has anything to do with Mr. W's forecasting fortitude. But, then again, I think this price behavior might be connected to April's option expiring tomorrow, 4/20/12.

  • Peabody (BTU): Q1 EPS of $0.67 beats by $0.13. Revenue of $2.04B (+17% Y/Y) in-line. (PR)  [View news story]
    If the company revenue is in line with estimate and eps is more then it shows that efficiency is better than estimate! I am confused and monetarily hurt that the share price is down all the way from above 40 to below 30.

  • Will Apple's Growth Stop In 2013? [View article]
    Davel: now you missed me, I don't know what you are talking about, we started with when you buy a stock in a company if you are investing in the company. I said that you become an investor in the company when you buy a stock in the company and you continued to say that you are not. So, at the end I said that if you think the stockholders are not investors then let it be that way. I want to part as friends.

    Theoretically, the transactions should hit the corporate books as you ( no, I won't say whose attic is vacant ) are expecting but don't you see how often should this happen, I mean corporate books adjusted for these transactions, daily? monthly? annually? So, the people remember these transactions and when some party wants to buy the company they look at the closing prices ( according to some algorithm ) and settle on the purchase price and you derive the benefit of any appreciation in the stock price. Have I helped you? I don't want this to develop into a verbal warfare but if you think you are not investing in a company when you buy its stock let it be that way.

  • Apple Airline: The Only Way To Fly [View article]
    Seriously folks, Apple's cash is burning hole in Apple's pocket. in keeping with Apple's tradition of vertical diversification, I think it may be an idea to buy out all the tower companies, and allocate some resources to research the tower technology and improve upon them. Next move could be buy out AT & T or Verizon to have some freedom from carriers' whim about subsidy.

  • Apple (AAPL -2.5%) will begin selling the new iPad in South Korea and 11 other countries this Friday, raising the number of countries in which the device is available to 47. The device will go on sale in another 9 countries, including India, on April 27. Ironically, no ETA has yet been given for a Chinese launch, though a regulator cleared the Wi-Fi-only models for sale in the country last month.  [View news story]
    Everywhere I read only nice news about Apple's business and the price at $644 was not that high (if I compute it this way 644-100/40=14-would I be wrong?) so why this pull back during last 5days?

  • Possibly contributing to today's weakness in Apple (AAPL -2.5%) is another cautious note from Wedge Partners' Brian Blair (previous), who argues FQ2 iPad expectations are too high. Blair believes just 11M iPads were sold in FQ2, well below a consensus of 13M. He also worries iPhone sales (the majority of Apple's gross profit) could disappoint if estimates rise further.  [View news story]
    Are you going to pull out when AAPL moves next time?

    thesuer: You wrote that you sold it at 500 and watched it to hit 640, what is so great about it! Have you lost all your nails while watching AAPL go to 640, it must have been a harrowing experience!

    Kirk, Kirk: you remind of a story about when Columbus returned home from the newly discovered continent, a fellow sailor instigated the queen to challenge Columbus to make an egg stand on one end and Columbus agreed but he challenged others to do it first and they all failed one after another and ultimately it was Columbus turn and he slightly broke the shell so the end was flat and made the egg stand up on that end. When Columbus was finished everybody clamored that they did not know that the shell could be broken, and etc. When Apple was thinking about this god forsaken iphone, there was talk that Apple might have to own the towers and the carriers demanded that Apple gave them more and the rst is story (history ). I am sure when God created Earth other Gods said Oh! is that what you wanted!
