  • Apple's Challenging Metric Conversion [View article]
    Nice article. Noted that there was no information or comments on the state of Apple if they do, in fact, close the deal with China Mobil. This would I think change a number of issues, but would bring a very large number of buyers to the table.

    Thanks for your thoughts,

  • Whisper Number Impact: Apple Earnings Expectations Showing Confidence [View article]
    Whisper, thanks for your article and past work. As a trader both long the stock and an options player I have moved away for almost all option position in the after earnings days of Jan. and move into the Feb./Mar. area. This allows for the market to move in a more reasonable manner. Up or Down. I any case that allows for consideration and make adjustments if required. All that said, I want AAPL to move up within the next 20 days. We will see how that works.

  • The Variance Between Apple's Intrinsic Value And Analyst Estimates [View article]
    DC,

    Model seems to be working now, and thanks for the good work. Time well spent and I look forward to more of your comments. They create good comments from a lot of contributors and most are sound.

    Long AAPL and play on the bull side of options for better returns.

  • Selling Puts - Investing Made Easy [View article]
    Ken,

    Thank you for good article on selling puts in general and in particular on the SPY. Your article has generated a number of great comments by other users of the Put Selling method of playing options.

    With the markets all closed it gives me time to review and perhaps better understand how others work the options market. I have been selling OTM's for a few years with good returns, but want to continue to explore new ideas.

    I look forward to you future articles.

    As a contributor you have set a new bar for analyses. Hopefully, others will do more checking before they comment. I have never shorted APPLE and don't intend to any time soon. Thanks!!

  • Barclays' Ben Reitzes thinks Apple (AAPL -0.4%) sold a healthy 33M iPhones in FQ2 on the back of international demand, and thinks there's upside to his estimate of 9.5M iPad sales. However, he thinks Mac sales could be relatively soft due to iPad cannibalization and an upcoming refresh. Moreover, he suspects consumer expectations regarding upcoming Mac and iPhone launches could lead Apple to issue conservative guidance for FQ3. (earlier)  [View news story]
    Apple will continue to move in an up play through 2012 and most of the comments are correct based on how each person is impacted by Apple products. However, Apple is not looking at the buyer who has every product and is just waiting for the next update to purchase more products. Apple needs to move into the commercial market in the next few years. The sooner the better. When the commercial & industrial market starts to buy into the Apple products and systems the growth will move very quickly.

    Being in the manufacturing business there are a number of software products we use that are not available to the Apple software/hardware. The cost to write special Apple software for applications in industry is too high. This situation will not change until more companies feel that Apple, for any number is reasons, is now the platform to use. When that happens designers of software will than start to write programs that companies, with limited IT help, will buy.
    I have all of Apples products at some level and I'm not buying the "next best now product". I also am a long time options player and only own Apple stock in restricted non options accounts.
