  • Apple: Probably Going To Remain Painful For The Average Investor [View article]
    @Rock and Ruin: You're just here to tout Blackberry stock. I don't care if others buy AAPL or not. Fact is, if you don't like how AAPL is run, and don't like how the stock is doing, then sell your shares and invest in a company that better meets your investment needs. AAPL's secret ingredient is the Apple Ecosystem. You don't get that with any other phone. Blackberry new phone are DOA. The Z hasn't sold even close to estimates. The current iPhones have outsold Blackberry over 10 to 1. Blackberry isn't even selling as well as WinPhones, LOL! Blackberry is a sucker bet.

    @Rock and Ruin: What do you base your plonking comment on? Are you just a shill for Blackberry? Do you think a device such as the Q10, that looks so retro that Flash Gordon must have used it a 1930s movie serial, is going to 'kill' the market? Their Z10 sold less in the last quarter, with all the hype, than AAPL sells iPhones in a few weeks. AAPL is the best company ever.

    True, and more so. The price of AAPL was mostly driven up last year, after $450, by pure air in the form of margin purchases. The buyers on margin were able to increase their margin purchases as the stock price rose. When it reached its peak, and margin calls were issued, virtually none of the margin buyers covered. Instead they sold short before the peak and rode it all the way down. When the "up tick" rule for short sales (that you could only short a stock on an up tick) was changed in 2007, it changed completely how the market operated. It's obvious that the stock market is behaving as completely different animal since 2007.

    AAPL has only been painful to those who sold their shares at a loss. They created their own pain. Long term investors have nothing to worry about. There is a a good dividend payout, that will increase in the near future, and by the end of this year, the stock valuation, (whatever it is), will represent close to $200 of cash or cash equivalents. Moreover AAPL will continue to innovate, and continue to generate the highest profit margin per unit sale, in all of tech. Long term investors should take no heed of short term swings in a stocks price, If you have chosen a well run, profitable, debt free company such as AAPL.

  • Apple Can Save Its Shareholders - But Will It? [View article]
    If you think AAPL isn't a safe long term investment, based on its glowing brilliant fundamentals, that are within a hair of a screaming Ben Graham buy, then what stock would you recommend that is a better long term buy, than AAPL?

  • Apple: Keep The Faith [View article]
    There are many of us who are waiting patiently for the opportunity to buy a large screen Apple iTV. It may cost 20% more, but it will be well made, seamlessly integrate into the Apple iEcosystem, and it will work, as in function flawlessly, without down time.

    Not sure what an iWatch will be, but it will be more than just another wristwatch, or trinket.

    Long AAPL.

  • Apple Needs A Staggering Breakthrough, And Quickly [View article]
    AAPL is the best long term investment, based on fundamentals, that anyone can make right now. Ignore the short term insanity. This is your last opportunity to buy and hold AAPL, as its brilliant management team, boldly goes, where no corporation, has gone before. Go long and prosper!

  • What Will Apple Do With That Cash? [View article]
    @Bizzare: It is illegal, violating current tax laws. Even the government was clever enough to see that scam coming, and passed laws against it.

  • Apple Shares Set To Rise [View article]
    Apple is the best run company on planet Earth. Tim Cook and company are doing a superhuman job of taking Apple into a prosperous future. Those shareholders who don't like how the company is being run, should sell their shares, and invest in a company that meets their current needs. I can't understand why, so called, "investors" are staying with a company, when they don't like what its management is doing? Sell your shares, and stop with the whining and complaining already!

  • What Will Apple Do With That Cash? [View article]
    It appears that Apple and hundreds of other US companies with foreign profits, who can afford to operate off of domestic returns, aren't bringing in any of those foreign funds, because they will be taxed by the US if they do, and if they don't bring it into the US, then they pay no tax and the funds grow off shore.

    It's not the fault of any US corporation, if the US tax policies are insane, and there is no one in the current administration that has a practical brain in their head.

    In the case of Apple, these funds are invested overseas, not idle and collecting zero income, as some Apple critics lie about it.

    Don't know what tax holiday you are referring to. Don't ask me to explain tax policy, I didn't write the tax laws. As with most things in life, you play the cards that you are dealt. There is no reason for a US corporation to bring cash into the USA, if it is going to be taxed, when they can leave it off shore, quite legally, earning profit without being taxed.

    Not that I think Apple buying back shares is a good idea, but Apple is registered, domiciled, in the USA. So, it is under US tax laws. All moneys used to buy back shares and pay dividends, must be after tax dollars in the US. Therefore they can't use Apple's foreign based, untaxed by the USA, money to buy back their shares off shore.

    @DanoX: The difference is that individuals have to pay income tax on a yearly basis. However corporations only have to pay income tax on foreign profits, if the money is brought back into the USA. So why bring it into the country and pay taxes, if you don't have to? It's not Apple's or any other corporation's fault that US tax policy is insane.

    AAPL is not just holding a big pile of cash. That money is invested. AAPL is becoming a fund, on the order of Berkshire Hathaway. The tech part of Apple's business, being similar to the insurance businesses at the core of Berkshire Hathaway's operations. I see that as very good for the future of AAPL share price, and long term investors will prosper from it.
