    Apple Watch:
    Two fiscal quarters' worth of Apple's version one Watch is larger than the rest of every other smartwatch in the world over five quarters. While Apple Watch unit sales will be in the 7 million range, no other producer has sold more than 300,000 in a single quarter.

    Apple Pay
    News broke on December 18th that Apple and China's state-owned credit card processor announced plans to launch Apple Pay in China. While Google, Facebook and Amazon have been totally locked out of China, remember that Apple grew 99% year-over-year in China per its latest earnings report and fully 50% of its operating income came from that country.

    We know that Mobile payment transactions in China increased by 134 percent last year while the middle class in China will grow from 50 million people in 2010 to half a billion people by 2020.

    Apple TV
    In early September, J.P. Morgan analyst Rod Hall said that he expects Apple to move 24 million next-gen Apple TVs in 2016. He predicts that this product's hardware sales, app sales and subscription fees alone will drive upwards of 3.3% of Apple's earnings in 2016.

    The revenue just from this product will be larger than twice of Facebook's entire earnings. Yes, you read that correctly, just this product is twice Facebook's earnings.

    iPhone sales broke every record conceivable in 2014 but, Wall Street couldn't help itself for 2015 detailing how inconceivable it would be for the firm to repeat its success.

    Guess what...? For every quarter in 2015 Apple has sold more iPhones than it did last year, and by staggering amounts.

    Apple is set to break last year's "impossible" number of 74.6 million iPhones.

    ACT: The 'failed' Apple Watch and the 'dead' Mac alone will generate revenue greater than 50% of Google and double Facebook's revenue from 2015.

    Apple stores are filled with kids. You're wrong.

  • Apple With A 10% Yield  [View article]
    When I looked at the option tables I didn't see any covered calls that I felt safe selling. I want to keep my shares and have my calls expire worthless. It's a fun idea, but the real out of the money calls didn't make me enough money to be worth my time. What am I missing here? I'd really like to make some money with covered calls.

    Samsung is not a threat. Samsung is flopping around like a dying fish out of water. Samsung has fired executives and its stock is down double-digits. The copy artist Samsung can't charge a premium price for its inferior products. Apple has won this little competition.

    My Apple Watch has been a fun and useful addition to my life. I will never go back to a watch with less functionality. It will succeed in the marketplace.

    I don't think so. Samsung can't make a fingerprint scanner that works, let alone is secure. That's what people don't get - Apple does the tough work to make technology that actually works. The rest of the industry makes stuff that barely works (or doesn't at all) so they can put it on a spec sheet and advertise it.
    BIG difference.

    But Apple Pay uses your existing credit cards. You add your existing credit cards to Apple Pay and then use the credit account of your choice when you use Apple Pay. Of course the same terms would apply.

    Clearly, Apple Pay will be a new and valuable addition to the Apple ecosystem. I want to use Apple Pay and Apple is the only company I would trust with such a system. A significant portion of the population feels the same way. Apple Pay will generate at least significant revenue for Apple and could become a major revenue source. This is all very positive for Apple. There's no down side.
