  • Apple At $650. Now What? [View article]
    Theory to test and questions?
    92to100 or 92to85 usd
    8 vs 7 usd. 100 usd is equal to 700 pre split level or almost all time high 705.34 usd. Is that going to happen I am guessing 85 first 595 let the rich take their spoils and the poor buy their dreams, obviously while the rich are more the stock will fall.

    Another point is if you look at market caps now apple is similar to intel, Microsoft etc. does that mean if Intel, Microsoft etc did a 1/7 split they would have more liquidity in their trading volumes leading to higher daily volatility in price like apple?

  • Apple Stock Split: 2 Theories [View article]
    How did Apple come up with the number 7? Because they had expected their stock price to hit 700 USD by end of trading day today. Then on Monday morning they would have a stock trading over the psychological 100 USD barrier. The marketing genius could have taken 4 or 5 or 6 and been over 100 USD on June 9th but for that they would have to anticipate the stock closing today at 645 USD. But since they are genius and wanted to touch their all time high they chose 7. I think the stock will fall to 80 USD after the split and then climb to 100 USD. That becomes a huge resistance as it is 100 USD and in reality is the all time Apple high. Apple marketing Genius at its best. You just cannot forget the all time high as it equal to 100. Awesome!
    At current price 647.35 USD post split stock has a value of 92.47 USD.
    On April 23rd price 557.25 USD post split stock has a value of 79.57 USD.
    At all time high price 705.55 USD post split stock has a vlaue of 100.79 USD.

    So why did Apple choose 7 for 1?

  • Kerry flying to Kiev to show support for Ukraine [View news story]
    Crazy
    Option 1- war markets tumble, US kerry visits, hopefully nothing happens to him otherwise we have world war 3, end of the world as we know it.
    Option 2- Putin bluffing as he knows the US are cutting their military spending and do not want another war, the markets correct as the UN decides that the crisis is not a page turner and the stock markets have a healthy correction 5-10% before April highs happen, Putin wins some other concession point with his Crimea distraction
    Option 3- Ukraine concedes Crimea that anyway once belonged to Russia- against jurisprudence and no precedent of such actions being acceptable
    Option 4- I Chinas interest in getting to South Korea make it act as a defender of Russias action, making this is multilevel super power poker game, more bad news for the stock markets.
    In a nut shell expect March to be a bummer!

  • J.C. Penney Earnings Preview: It Is About Operating Cash Flow [View article]
    Agree to all your points. Expecting a pop after 26th results. weather has been built into price based on other retailers results. So only the outlook has be positive, breathy and refreshing and we should see a nice pop like last quarter.
    What would quanitify for a pop in your anlysis?

  • The Resurrection Of J. C. Penney: It's Not All About The Numbers [View article]
    Awesome article so much to digest. What I wonder is that your analysis is what if, speculative? Whatever Ullman did Johnson redid and now Ulmann is redoing what is the value addition? Change is inevitable at lower thresholds, the company has only done worse for 12 quarters and the expectations like you mention on any decent news are huge. A floor is been built, the downside is all built in. Otherwise in the long run there are other retailers with much better upside and returns to be sought out after this "winter" escapade. BUT I am buying for the pop on 26th Feb as I believe your hype and like risky assets in limited quantities. what do you think of family dollar store, Ross stores?

  • Facebook buying WhatsApp [View news story]
    You are the one smart man in the crowd of ohhhhhs and ahhhhsss. I agree. Facebook actually paid 4 billion in cash and the rest in stock. 19 billion with 2 billion in breakup fees. Forget the stock as that is probably locked up and is accounted for but the cash payment is actually equivalent to 1,5 usd per Facebook shareholder or 2.2% like a dividend. The stock should open approximately 2.2% or more down. The deal at 4 billion is cheap the rest is paper millionaires, what dreams are made off. How do you monetize this who cares, everyone's uses what's app!

    It is cheap. Calculating value with stock is insignificant, the cash outflow is what matters.
