  • Apple beats EPS estimates, but guides light [View news story]
    Earnings beat is meaningless they bought back 5 billion worth of stocks what ii important is revenue beat and operating margin improvements which mean growth and cost of goods sold under control. Think the market will shoot up!

  • Family Dollar +9% AH on Icahn stake; peers also up [View news story]
    http://1.usa.gov/1j8fpLf

    He owns 9 million options how do options give one the right ot elect directors? That is probably why he is requesting directorship and not demanding. His options are in the money at an exercise price of 38 USD and then upon exercising his call options his put options in the same amount come into play.

  • Apple: What Now? Beats Me! [View article]
    How hot is apple?
    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?
    Thanks

  • 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!
