  • Doubling Down On Apple [View article]
    Berkshire heathway was bankrupt and buffet made it a brand. A lot of the companies we invest in might disappear but one or two will. Be the next big thing. Take google 1999 I had 10000 usd and had to decide between yahoo and google, I chose no name google and today it is huge. Of course it is hard but no is trying to predict we we all trying to make safe investments after analyzing risk! Would you buy herbal life, Trina solar, solar world or twitter? What order based on risk?

  • Doubling Down On Apple [View article]
    There are apple die hard fans who go on and on, and then there are investors searching for the next best thing. I own apple but over a period of a year under Tim's leadership I have had better returns with other stock in my portfolio like Tesla, Twitter, Facebook and herbal life. Ok, I agree that apple had value for its price whereas the others mentioned can crash and burn as fast as they rise. BUT that is investing. I bought some more apple after it's results but this time apple is not my biggest holding. Where the hell is the value of iTunes, AppStore, China mobile deal! Where are the new products? I tv that idea sucks low margin,I watch is an old idea. What is new! For all the apple fans, I am writing this on my new iPad mini.....

  • Apple: Don't Panic [View article]
    Your train of thought and logic are good but your use of the word 'I' outnumber any other word or alphabet in my eyes makes you appear very arrogant BUT again your arguments for and against apple are well thought through. Keep it up but consider reducing the I's. No offense intended.

  • Icahn buys more Apple shares following post-earnings selloff [View news story]
    Hey, I did the same thing last year 2013 Jan and had to wait until July to get profitable. I dont think Carl understands that him buying 500 M USD worth of shares and me buying 24 are going to change the headwinds, unless he thinks he is blowing! Average volume 12 million Carl buys 1 million, todays volume 20 million shares......I dont think he understands apple. No one does!

  • DAX Index Returns By Year From 1955 To 2012 [View article]
    I am a Dax investor and the best part is the dividend rich companies pay a dividend once a year and over the last three years if you bought a stock yielding above 2% the day before the AGM you would get the yield the day after the AGM, the stock would gap down and close the gap within three or fours days max before retracing. Take Siemens yield approximately 3-3.5%, dividend payable on the 29th of Jan. The stock is at 98.4 and it appears to be getting ready to fall a bit, I bought it at 94 euros after it had fallen 6.5% after it's q4 results and sold it at 99.5 euros after it had priced in the dividend. At 98 the dividend is priced in so if one can buy at 94/95 then it is again at the price pre dividend announcement. Majority of the Dax companies pay dividends in May, June and close the gaps caused by the dividend payout within three four days. The trick is buying in pre dividend announcement and getting a 2 plus upside move and the the dividend before getting out once the gap is closed.

  • Apple: All Systems Go For 2014 [View article]
    Hi, it definitely is pulsating here waiting for impulse before its earnings. The problem is that analysts are expecting an earnings miss. On the other hand the stock moves 10% up or down post earnings. My personal expectation is that the stock will move up towards 570 /575 (major resistence) pre earnings due to samsung loosing market share and China deal and now the expected revenues from the app business.

  • Apple Screwed Up Big Time [View article]
    thanks, I agree with your FB analogy, but if you look at a weekly chart then Apple is a momentum stock. If you take the last rally that started in June 2013 it was more than 47%, THE STOCK is moving sidewards getting ready to breakout, if it falls below 539 then 506 USD is the next support but as of now a 47% move is still momentum.

  • Apple Screwed Up Big Time [View article]
    Wow, you raised a point, interesting, but from a valuation perspective don't think it means much when you factor in the china telecom deal. Secondly, buyers beware means nothing else but this that buyers buy on emotions, value, prestige and lastly on what they can afford. Everyone wants a Porsche and are willing to buy one irrespective of the fact that it is a very hard, bumpy ride but that is not what Porsche sells- they sell the big picture. Apple sells a momentum curtesy Steve Jobs, whether Cook cooks it up is irrelevant in the short term the dream, the ecosystem, iTunes, AppStore, tralalalala will keep the momentum alive in the short term.

    Apple at 650 is approximately 15% away, that's a long way, there must be better S&P companies to buy in the short term?

  • Why The Fed Won't Taper In December [View article]
    Is this a taper or a fizzle but markets love it! The question is now that all the uncertainty has gone (fiscal cliff on back burner, tapering begins but interest rates will remain unchanged long term, Europe contemplating similar strategy) what stops the big players from simply selling the market and then picking it up after a 5-10% drop? All the sidelined small players are probably buying now so who is selling and how much?
