  • Do You Seriously Own Freeport-McMoRan? [View article]
    Make no mistake, not my money. I even managed to make a few bucks before it became a falling knife.

    "Do what you want and buy the stock for all I care,...."

    A little testy there perhaps?

    "seems like none of you think there is any uncertainty in Middle East...."

    Or China or Greece or whatever's next.

  • Apple: Finding iPad's Future [View article]
    Very good questions GR & Tomal.
    And good enough to make me do some soul-searching and research!
    And to answer those questions, I have to admit I don't know. Whenever I wondered about that subject I would use my, "Oh, they'll be out 'cause Tim said" excuse.

    Well, I'm is getting a little antsy about what's in the pipeline too. I'm still hopeful that their Enterprise sectorwill pop (and several other things). But even us longs gotta' ask this company "what have you done for me lately?" I do plan on diversifying out of APPL (not totally) in '16, for one thing, we need new windows (small w). The reason I'm holding off until then is that our taxes are going to be bad enough this year.

    Thank you for giving me reason to think more rationally about my favorite (and biggest) holding.

    (BJNflicks, where are you?)

    Methinks we are forgetting. About the partnership with IBM, that is. Do you actually think that venture was all so consumers could have a great iPad experience?

  • Can Apple Burst The Netflix Bubble? [View article]
    626: File that with Steve Jobs is dead, Tim Cook should be fired and they've lost all ability to improvise. The untapped smartphone market worldwide offers AAPL many more quarters (if not years) of great iPhone earnings.

    eb697: For future reference, you should do your research before asking these questions.
    Now go do your homework!

    OK, OK. The reason is they can borrow at AAA rates and pay fewer dividends to boot. The rate they pay for the loans may even still be lower than their dividend rate. This is a win/win situation for the geniuses that run this company in more ways than those I mentioned.

  • Apple drops 5.2% amid tech rout; Jefferies cuts target on China fears [View news story]
    You want to see some more AAPL media bashing, albeit more subtle than most? Take a look in today's (8/12/15) "USA Today" financial page.
    Big headline "APPLE POISED FOR PAIN IN CHINA" (CAPS their's). Story includes a about a dozen or so (INTC, SWKS, QCOM, MU, NVDA et al,) who have Chinese exposure double to triple what AAPL's is!
    This is one writer who's going to hear about his "click-bait" type, AAPL-bashing headline from me.

    PS: I've tried to stop posting these ramblings by this "APPL Fanboy," but sometimes I get so steamed by these idiots I have to let it out. Please bear with me.

  • Apple up 3.7% as markets rally, analysts defend [View news story]
    Sit back and relax, Peel.
    You need to learn to accept the daily gyrations of the world's greatest company (ever) as part of the pain of being in the market. What's the alternative, CDs?
