  • Apple's Reported Price Raises: Will They Help Or Hurt? [View article]
    Owning Apple stock has afforded me all Apple products....unfortunately for Apple shareholders the products are so well designed and build quality so good that the refresh rate is longer than on other platforms.....

  • The New Apple: Embracing Personalized Technology With A Luxury Twist [View article]
    @Wiily....If they didnt hit eighteen years old before 1970 and were not in the draft or served in. Viet Nam they probably wont get it....I walked thru the Haight in 1968".. The world was a conservative angry bundle of nerves before Woodstock... I am fortunate to be able to invest my money in and prosper with Steve Jobs legacy with Tim Cook at the helm of the new Apple...I applaud Tim Cook for taking a stand on privacy...

  • BlackBerry Downgrade Reinforces Ongoing Narrative [View article]
    @Cliff.....I will grant you that , John Chen's employment has been a shorter time than Heins too long of a stay....I never quite understood a physicist taking over the lead...
    I think Chen may make a better cfo, from what I have seen...maybe he is secretly doing all three Ceo , coo , and cfo......In the interviews I have seen on cnbc he seems to be a very smart, diplomatic and likeable guy...

    My take on the big picture...Cutting r and d may be shooting yourself in the foot at this stage in the game, bbm and qnx seem like good products to market and incorporate into new platforms...security used to be stand alone with bbry handsets, and definitely still light years ahead of malware ridden droid products...Tim Cook has made a stand on privacy and security since taking over...Nadella hasnt really addressed this publicly much...happy trading....

  • BlackBerry Downgrade Reinforces Ongoing Narrative [View article]
    @cliff.....I just look at simple metrics. Market share , revenue from sales, new adoption to platform..tech is all about growth not just cost cutting and streamlining to balance numbers...I believe Chen knows how to run a manufacturing company but so far do not see him as a visionary to lead them forward...

  • More on Apple's Web TV: What about NBC, basic pay TV channels? [View news story]
    High flyers like the stocks you mentioned can take quick turns when the market corrects....wish I had taken a bite out of Chipotle though....I traded tsla and nflx for quick doubles and got out too early ...oh well hindsight...

  • BlackBerry Downgrade Reinforces Ongoing Narrative [View article]
    If the passport is a niche product so be it....there are lots of Blackberry phone loyals I get that, diversity makes the world more interesting....

    I dont want everybody to drive the same make model and color of car I drive , even though it is my personal choice...

    Hiding bad news/sales from shareholders between earnings calls upsets me , nothing worse than getting blindsided...big pump ups right before earnings is way to prevalent on wall street ...high frequency traders circulating rumors take advantage of the retail investors...
