  • Apple: A Reversal Of Fortune Seems Inevitable [View article]
    Wow! What a value. So many words. So many charts. And I got this piece for free. Never mind that it's low in quality, lacks capabilities and is completely wrong. I got it free, so it's leading me reading list. You could well take over the world with so many words at such a cheap price. Let's hear it for market share.

    I hope you short Apple and make lots of money.

  • Why Walgreen Won't Be The Biggest Benefactor Of CVS' Shunning Of Tobacco [View article]
    Walgreens won't be a benefactor at all. They might be a beneficiary. Your headline writer should learn English, or at least get more sleep.

  • Apple's Value Creation Going Forward [View article]
    I think the health aspects of Apple's coming wearable technology is be earthshaking and a big game-changer. For one thing, Apple technologies will make life easier for those who suffer from one of our most prevalent diseases: Diabetes

  • Apple's Value Creation Going Forward [View article]
    I think Apple is doing exactly what you suggest. I would also suggest that Apple expand its TV product to allow apps, especially gaming apps. This would add an incredible amount of value for gamers. In fact, for anyone who doesn't like the high cost of Xbox or Playstation and the pricey games they play.

  • Will Sapphire Help Apple Retain Its Smartphone Leadership? [View article]
    CZ is also very heavy, much heavier than sapphire or even diamond.

    Maybe they aren't baseless but just early. Who knows? I surely don't.

    Forrest Gump could get away with calling Apple a fruit company because he was not too bright. So why can't this guy get away with it, too.

    I think you guys are being way too hard on this writer. In reality, all he is missing is just one thing: a brain.

    You have become boring to me. Wrong on so many levels, much like a bad parfait.

  • Will Apple Emulate Gold's Plunge? [View article]
    Apple stock already fell by a far greater percentage than gold did. And it has rebounded by almost 200 points before its recent drop. So what the hell are you talking about? Are you ignorant? Or am I just missing something?

    You are like the Macalope's bad parfait: wrong on so many levels.

  • Google Or Apple In The New Year? [View article]
    Investinginvestor: That's a pretty different and yet insightful way to look at Google's shenanigans. Still, Google can play around and get by with it because it has a lock on Internet advertising income and search. All those negatives, in other words, don't make Google any less attractive investment.

  • Apple's Scenic Detour On The Road To Reported Growth [View article]
    I do not see the improvements in the iPhones I buy every two years as "fairly modest." In fact, they are pleasing and have made me fall in love more and more with my iPhone. I have seriously looked at other phones, and none has improved as much as iPhone. So I keep buying them, as do most people who try them. I once nearly threw an Android phone against a brick wall because it was so balky, slow and non-intuitive. I stopped myself only because it wasn't my phone. Android phones are getting better, but only because they have about twice the chip horsepower to supply slower response. They need the extra power to compensate for poor programming that generally makes Androids of equal power much slower than Apple's iPhone.

  • Carl Icahn's Threat To Apple's Long-Term Prospects [View article]
    Look at Apple's stock price history. Even after Apple's most successful products were introduced, the stock tended to drop for awhile (Sell on the news).

    Analysts always pan Apple's new stuff. They get more hits that way. And they get to pose as being smarter than Apple. Some folks believe the analysts and sell the stock, pushing it lower.

    Just hold the stock until the products start selling like hotcakes and you will make plenty of money. Don't waste your time and money on puts or calls.

  • Does Apple Really Need The Aluminum Cover For Its iPhones? [View article]
    There is only one feature that counts. That's ease and speed of use. Apple has it in spades. Some Android phones have a little of it. But most don't have much usability compared to Apple. That's why iPhone users love their phones more than Android users. And that's why they are willing to pay more. Love works.
