  • Apple's Biggest Threat - Declining Prices Of Computing Devices [View article]

    Look at several factoids! I will number them to make it easy to follow.

    1. Apple App store revenue and profit are doubling every year.
    2. New products are coming. Creating synergy with the iPhone. watch, medical, faster app creation through new compiler, upgraded phones, upgrade tablets with fingerprint sensor and so many more things.
    3. More buy backs.
    4. Beats
    5. Increased China Mobile sales as they build out.
    6. Increasing size of world Middle class. More customers for the better phone.
    7. New plans allowing people to pay off their phones over time. Plus generous buy backs for used iPhones which can be close to half for a 2 year old phone in average condition.

    1. Look up Demand Curve. As Apple's prices go down, they sell more units. On a demand curve we want price the product to get the maximum sales.

    2. Look up schlock. You will see this article as an example.

    Look up ecosystem and see how Apple's app downloads have double in sales each year.

    Look up new products.

    Look up crappy products vs great products.

    Look at Sapphire and touch screen and ecosystem.

    Thanks dude.

  • Now That The 'Little Guy' Is In Apple, Time For The Flush [View article]
    This article is right on. This guy should get a Pulitzer Prize for this! Brilliant. Apple will sell off under 80 to 77.85 and maybe lower to 55 to retest the previous low.

    Google is so ahead of them and Apple is a joke!

  • The Genius Of The Apple iPhone 6 [View article]
    Doug, Great article but Apple will correct as it is overpriced based on historical p/e ratios. I see Apple pulling back to 79-83 on a drop in the market like today. Apple is looking very weak and won't start reversing until after earnings. After such a big run, Apple usually drops big.

    Android looked great yesterday and Apple looks old and playing catchup. The stock is heading straight down lately and will soon have dropped $ 7 (49). After dropping to 85 we would be below the old 600 and that will be interesting. Expect capitulation to 79 and then trade in a range until late Sept. When we get sell the news and down much more ... 55 is the bottom though!!!!

  • Apple's iWatch May Have A 37% Net Profit Margin [View article]
    Apple is down below 90 today. It had its run and now it will go back down for a year and hit amazing lows like last year. Apple can't hold gains and always sells off after going up. But we have lower highs and lower lows.

    This company is doomed!

  • Apple's 50% Upside Driven By Growth, Free Cash Flow And Dividend Increases [View article]
    Michael Blair has a price target of 43 or lower. How can you say it is going up 50%. Michael Blair is never wrong. He is a genius. At least he thinks so.

    I think Apple will be around $ 90 or lower a share 1.5 years from now as it is all priced in.

  • Apple: The Pullback You Wanted [View article]
    The great news is that Apple is finally in sell off mode. If down today (futures show that it will be) the stock will be down 6 days in a row and 9 down of 11 days.

    Apple should break 90 and start its trip to 80. After a big miss which will happen because everyone is now waiting for the iPhone 6 release. The drop of $ 5 that follows will be bought back up as we move closer to the phone release. Don't expect sales to go above 95 and the quantity of phones available if released will be low.

    Cool will manage to screw this up big. So far he has not done any magic and he basically move the stock with hopes and buy backs. A big sales beat last qtr was due to China Mobile and Japan. China's growth could slow due to their economy and the fact that China Mobile is behind schedule and the biggest markets were upgraded first so they are already priced in.

    Below 90 today should excite people to wait longer before buying and near 85 by earnings will keep many selling after the miss. If you can get Apple below 80 you have a could risk reward basis.

  • Apple: Why The iWatch Is A Win/Win Situation [View article]
    The iWatch will be the biggest bomb Apple ever introduced. It will fail terribly and the stock will go to under 80. Maybe a low of 75.

    The move up is over and you won't see the highs again this year and maybe next.

    Down to under 90 this week as we are down 4 days in a row and tomorrow 5.

    So while all honor Tim Cook, he has yet to show us a thing and he gets rewarded like Obama with a Nobel Prize for not doing anything.

    I don't see a watch until 2015-16 and one slightly bigger iPhone but much to late to the game.

    Keep waiting as the stock returns to its normal level of below 85 and much lower. Nothing going on with this stock.

  • An iWatch Cannot Move The Needle Much [View article]
    Apple is going to revisit 80 and lower. The stock is so overpriced. It is not a stock that should be over 85.

  • Apple's Playbook Revealed [View article]
    Apple has started its downtrend. Should drop 5-10 points as people realize that all the possible good news is already baked in. Apple needs to retest its lows before earnings and may stay below 85 (600) for the next couple of years but still higher than before earnings on average.

    Tim Cook has done nothing to build up the company. No new products, no new phones, no bigger phones. All this is speculation.

  • Don't Buy Apple After It Splits [View article]
    Google missed a zillion earings. You are misconstruing everything.

    So Apple will get a 10 p/e after the split? iPhone 6 is not going to help sales? iWatch is dead?

    You are a joke

  • Why Tim Cook Wants Mom And Pop To Buy Apple [View article]
    Apple stock will tank big after the i6 release. It always does. There will be no watch or new product this year. Just a new phone in September. The 4.7 inch screen will be good but it is sell the news. Next year we could get a 5.5 inch i6. This year will be just the 4.7 phone. Cook may be in short supply again as he can never get it right and waits to the last minute.

    I expect to see the stock back at 500 in the late fall.
