  • Apple Goes For Samsung's Throat: New Complaint Targets All Samsung Mobile Devices [View article]
    Sounds a lot like the biotech industry. All legal, IP, and finance these days.

  • Could Apple Hit $1,000 A Share? China Holds The Key [View article]
    Apple management didn't seem to do so well in managing the Apple stores in China.

    Newsflash: Steve Jobs is gone. Tim Cook is a supply chain & logistics guy. As any company grows so large, it is prone to inefficiencies and mismanagement. Your comment is asinine by insinuating that Apple's management is infallible.

    Android phones are already taking over massive shares of the pie that Apple could have had. It's too bad China gets treated as an unwanted stepchild by Apple's sales and marketing teams.

  • Pressure Mounts On Apple As Amazon Releases New Tablet [View article]
    I really wanted to be an Amazon fanboy, as I do buy almost everything online via Amazon. But come on, no 3G, only 7", inferior resolution, no camera or video recording, and probably much more. Why would I pay $250 for a glorified Kindle w/ video streaming capabilities? I'd much rather watch videos on a 10" screen.

    Completely two different markets. The way I see it is, most consumers are not going to buy a Kindle to replace the iPad, but there are plenty of consumers like me who are willing to buy the iPad3 and not buy the Kindle. For $250 more, you get a superior product and you can still use Kindle via Kindle app.

  • Why You Should Avoid Apple [View article]
    I would say the news of Steve Jobs leaving is a bullish one. Too often do we see crony senior management stay at the top in a company for far too long without a viable succession plan.

    You guys must be blind, because Moon clearly wrote, "The future looks bright for Apple right now." From my interpretation, that means the next five years or so.

  • When's the Right Time to Sell Apple? [View article]
    Thank you two for the information. I have never considered investing in tech because I do not have much knowledge in it. Maybe I will expand a little from gold, silver, and agency REITs into AAPL.

    I have been to China recently and have seen the craze behind AAPL products. It is absolutely mind-boggling. It is actually seen as a status of wealth and trendiness. My relatives and in-laws not only have Louis Vuitton purses and messenger bags, but now they all have iPad2s to go with it everywhere they go.

    Tim,

    Apple manufactures its products in China by partnering with FoxConn, which provides many jobs for Chinese workers. Unless FoxConn or Apple goes against the Chinese government, why would controlling exports of rare earths affect Apple? Let's say even if Apple's products were not manufactured in China. It would not take long for other countries to ramp up rare earth production.

    Moon, Apple has grown 4000% in the past 10 years and is already the world's biggest company in terms of market capitalization. What makes you think Apple will grow so much more from now? Google's market share in smartphones seems consistent; the only way for Apple to double or more in the next decade would be to sell much more in the developing and emerging markets. Is this what you see happening for Apple?
