  • A Better Entry Point For Apple Will Become Available For Patient Investors [View article]
    Author, I don't buy your approach of using anecdotal evidence as a sentiment gauge. Do potential investors think AAPL is cheap because of the stock split, or because of the prospects of new products? If you're going to cite investor psychology as a reason for predicting price movements, you should provide some actual research.

    Many people are asking me: "Should I buy AAPL"?

    How many is "many"? What's the size of your sample? What's your research methodology?

    What you've offered here is opinion.

  • Gilead Sciences - Investigating Earnings Predictability [View article]
    Thanks for writing the article. Doesn't this metric give equal weight to each earnings estimate? If so, it would seem like a naive assumption, since it doesn't qualitatively assess each data point. Also, is it possible that predictability is a measure of the analysts' skills, and not the earnings?

    Thanks again.

  • Intel Is Likely To Report A Miss July 17, But Fear Not - It Should Not Matter [View article]
    You may want to refrain from the ad hominem attacks and stick to addressing the author's numbers. If you don't like his assertions, then please counter with your own. The author has provided us with straw man figures in order to encourage debate and discussion. His background is irrelevant.

  • Gilead inks deal with Anthem for Harvoni [View news story]
    It might be worth a stroll down memory lane, and look at the comments on the SA articles from two weeks ago. The shrill forecasts of GILD plummeting to $80 may seem rather "quaint"...

  • Is An Expensive Himax Technologies Still A Buy? [View article]
    I hate to be critical (although I'm going to be) but the article adds no new information or analysis, and relies on quotes from Mark Gomes, another Seeking Alpha contributor. I'd rather re-read Mark's analysis, which is far more informative and timely.

  • Apple's Q3 Risks Are To The Downside [View article]
    Michael, I don't think a listing of analysts' estimates of iPhone sales is valid without introducing a confidence level. A weighted list of estimates would be more useful. It would also be useful to see how predictive the consensus estimates have proven over time.

    Thanks for your article.
