  • Apple: Bear Case From A Bull [View article]
    "This should be a very strong quarter for Apple but perhaps it will be the last really great one for a while."

    The classic MB argument!

  • Apple: Bear Case From A Bull [View article]
    So iPhone generating a majority of revenue for Apple is a problem, but search making up about 96% or Google's revenue is ok...because Android makes no money for Google? I don't get the twist.

  • Apple: LinX Acquisition Addresses A Hardware Risk [View article]
    "More concerning, Asian rivals such as Huawei, Xiaomi, Lenovo, Samsung and LG are gradually catching up to the iPhone in terms of processing power, graphics, memory, display and camera quality."

    Funny you didn't mention software quality or depth of the ecosystem.

  • Apple: LinX Acquisition Addresses A Hardware Risk [View article]
    "Interestingly, the stock finished flat on the back of this news and it appears that the market already is discounting this news..."
    I cite this sentence as evidence that the author really doesn't understand the stock market. Stocks move up and down. Yesterday was a down day for the entire market. The stock price move was not a reaction to news of any kind.

  • Report: Apple music service to undercut Spotify, new Apple TV planned [View news story]
    Thank you Michael, for your insight. But how can I trust what you say when you speak of iPay and iWatch, neither of which are real Apple products?

  • Google Investors Shouldn't Expect Much From Its Wireless Phone Plans [View article]
    Buying stock because you believe in their philosophy is pointless, as the company doesn't get your money. You would do better to start a blog declaring your allegiance to their cause. Throwing your money at stock is just wasting it.

  • Don't Focus On Apple Watch Edition Pricing [View article]
    Smartphones are useless. They are not stand-alone products, just accessory computers. They are largely redundant. Your laptop can already tell time and can present a far more usable view of mobile apps. If you already have a laptop, chances are it will last far longer on a battery charge than a smartphone. It adds unnecessary layers of complication to communication and time-telling for the sake of bundling so many functions into a pocketable computer.
    People who own smartphone stock should be at least concerned. They have the potential for bad publicity through the failure to deliver on hype.

  • Google co-founders to sell $4.4B of stock [View news story]
    Who wouldn't cash out a few billion? Let me tell you--somebody who expected that few billion to be worth more than a few billion down the road. This is not a good sign.

    Are they naked long puts or are they just one leg of long vertical put spreads?

  • Apple Numbers Get Serious [View article]
    "On an average day that's just 115,000 shares."

    Dana, check your numbers!! AAPL's average daily volume is reported between 55-60 million (depending upon the source).

  • Apple: Bears Resurrect The Commodity Bogeyman [View article]
    "Competition is important, if Apple has no competition their tech will stagnate."

    I disagree. Apple isn't driven by the competition's current products. Apple is far out-thinking everyone. They know where they want to be in five years, maybe ten years. Then they drive themselves relentlessly in that direction. It's been said many time, "don't skate to where the puck is, skate to where it's going to be." Today's competition is where the puck is.
