    Service service then do it!
    Please write an article about how apple should have a franchise model like MCD. It would make sense as they have revenues of 25% coming from their own shops and online sales. They also have 110000 full time employees. If they franchise all their shops to billionaires in the their respective locations and keep the training and development programs for all these employees who get transferred to the franchises would that not increase service revenues dramatically. The numbers above are from the 2014 annual report. As it is apple keeps touting its service revenue then they should become a service company. The inventory also gets into the franchise systems along with a dramatic reduction in fixed costs leading to a rise in revenues and operating margins!

    Makes sense!

    Apple a service company then act like it- Please write an article about how apple should have a franchise model like MCD. It would make sense as they have revenues of 25% coming from their own shops and online sales. They also have 110000 full time employees.

The inventory also gets into the franchise systems along with a dramatic reduction in fixed costs leading to a rise in revenues and operating margins! All this will allow them to focus on innovation!
    The 2014 annual report talks under business specifically about their ownership of the sales channels as this allows them to sell premium product. MCD also sells premium product and all the franchises look and feel the same just like apple!

    Stagnating, the stock price reflects the future and the pe reflects value.
    Apple = undervalued
    No longer growth but more of a value stock.
    With its cash position it can buy any company in the world to innovate but guess they are loosing focus of what Stevie's vision was.
    The stock will rise because it has value and any long term investor will buy it if it hits 72 usd, which I doubt. This quarters result have been built into the price since the last quarter when they announced guidance for this quarter hence the stock fell from 135 to its current price. Now we know what we knew everyone will be buying because that is what we do.

    true! Moving on! Back to the charts, naked and clean! Survival is our gut instinct and only the greedy profit as they have no empathy. Overall profitable but in the long run they die alone and wealthy.
    I am grateful that I HAVE EMPATHY................

    Your conclusion is a summation of the stock market.
    No acceleration = sell sell sell

    What do you think of the pc ratio? Is it an indicator of the stock market direction?

    Thanks

    FG, Please shed some light or anyone out there!

    I am trying to analyze the CBOE put call ratio and find that it is not very supportive of trend indication.
    Correct me and help me understand why it is a trend indicator.
    I looked up data from 2007 to 2016- 21.02.16
    Built it up into daily, weekly, monthly, yearly charts and find that at the end of Dec 2015 there was no indication that the world would fall apart in January.
    Furthermore, looking at 2008 as a base for what if situations, the pc ratio was not that high.
    In conclusion, for every put a call is bought or sold and vice versa. Hence the indicator is not very trend indicative as it acts more like a hedge.
    TAKE A LOOK AT THE CHARTS

    http://bit.ly/1nDncUV
    http://bit.ly/1nDnawr

    Looking at other indicators- example % of stock above/below the 200 SMA- 81.2% below the sma 200 and 18.8% above. That is a result. If you look at the advancer’s decliners that is action indicating the bulls are in charge. 5830 vs 792 decliners. Clearly I should go long the SPY?
    What about the charts
    http://bit.ly/1nDyYP7

    The hammer formation bouncing off the August 2015 low, resistance at 1924 and a retest of 1824/1850 before shooting up? The MACD histogram is trending up but as it is a lagging indicator I rather look at a weekly chart as it removes the noise and the momentum is preserved in the candles and the histogram trend change signal. The RSI is below 50 and trending up, no confirmation but more of a reversal chance at 50 which should coincide with 1924/1950 on the chart. Volume has been only yesterday and today positive but the movement could be short-lived as the 2 day moving average on the volume did not spike up yesterday hence the chatter of short covering I do not believe, this is rally is not being bought, not yet. The Slow Stochaistic a much smoother line has hit its over sold area of below 20 and is moving up, also a buy signal and lastly the Chaikin mF is meeting resistance at 0 after spending time since Nov 2015 below 0. This resistance level is also strong.

    This is what the chart tells me along with the fact a reversal may be happening. Confirmation is only a close above 1950 followed by another close above 1950 the next day.

    Basically we will see 1924/1950 and if no confirmation then the bears will emerge to hit new lows 1750.

    I would be so appreciative if you would comment on my theory.

    Right! But those as well are after the fact and are only indicative of broader market action. Take for example % of stock above/below the 200 SMA- 81.2% below the sma 200 and 18.8% above. That is a result. If you look at the advancers decliners that is action indicating the bulls are in charge. 5830 vs 792 decliners. Clearly I should go long the SPY?
