    Summary

    Stock has had a massive bullish run on pretty modest results.
    Smart money has been selling into the strength.

    iPhone 6 may not be enough to reverse the trend.

  • Apple: Facing A Challenge From Google's Android [View article]
    Hey Eric, cnbc did a big special this morn about xioamivalueing the company at 50 billion , pretty crazy for a company with 15 % supposed market share of China..... With between 1 and 2 percent profit margins ...sounds like the amazon fire phone. Anyway will see how this all plays out in 2015. ....Ceo even wears a turtleneck like Steve Jobs did...

  • Apple Analysis: Free Versus Levered Free Cash Flow [View article]
    Apple has increased R&D by twenty percent , a new ten billion headquarters nicknamed the Cupertino "spaceship". Expanding global retail operations , and these aren't cheap kiosks we are talking about....Tim Cooks plan to be a greener company does not come without some expenses...Also a growth company payinfg a dividend is unheard of in Silicon Valley or anywhere else, fb goog amzn probably never...long aapl and still buying shares on pullbacks...

    Xiaomi reported earnings of only $56 million in 2013, one-tenth what WSJ reported and 1/150 Apple's Chinese earnings
    12/15/2014, 01:08:21 AM, Posted By Daniel Eran Dilger
    In November, the Wall Street Journal reported that Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi had earned $556 million based on "internal documents." Reuters is now reporting that the company actually earned an order of magnitude less, based on the firm's public filings.

    @MB says....if you had invested the money you spend on idevices in your roth ira you would retire a rich man...

    ...how about this If I lived in a cardboard box had no mortgage payment, no heating bills, did not have a tv or car and instead invested all those saved monies in a roth ira I would be a much richer man......

    How about this scenario ...go long as I and others have in aapl,instead of shorting it and profiting and buying tv's cars homes etc....idevices.... Also arent you always talking about donning a super elegant expensive watch...I guess your logic only applies to your advice......you are stuck in a one way street in reverse way of thinking...

    Just my opinion but The progression will be a dumb screen and a smart box, whether it be wireless stream from iphone ipad hotspot whatever, they may just contract out a large monitor....pixelworx has apple ties via board members...the present interface with my ipad and set via airplay via apple tv or just direct works fine...the remote is a little analog feeling but if you are binging a series like continuum or game of thrones it is seamless...

  • Apple: A Pullback To Strongly Consider [View article]
    My recent small 100 share buy limit @ 106.74 over two days netted me a fivehundred dollar gain, not bad for 12 dollar trade fee....not going to set any records, but buying on pullbacks and dollar cost averaging does pay off over the long run..long since 85 dollars pre split...never too late to get in ....

  • Apple: Does The Party End In 2015? [View article]
    Maybe Richbar the number cruncher can forecast what apple pay will net in the foreseeable future.

    ...Recently MasterCard teamed up with Gwen Stefani to widely promote Apple Pay on TV and now Apple is revealing more Apple Pay partners that will be coming on board shortly or that have already joined. The list includes SunTrust and Barclaycard in addtion to ten more banks including TD Bank North America and Commerce Bank that will back the new form of payment sometime today. The addition of TD opens the door for Apple Pay debuting in Canada in the future. With the new additions, Apple says it supports the cards that represent about 90 percent of the credit card purchase volume in the United States.

    @john wood...steve jobs himself said it was better for apple to cannabalize itself than othe rtech companies.....the quality of the devices combined with the software makes it difficult for me to continuously upgrade..my ipad four is awesome replacing my laptop and desktop, I may pass it down where it will probably remain vital for years to come...

    Tim and company know they have to keep the innovation alive and coming, they may not always be first with a product but they do get it right.
    2015 imo will have the living room and car in focus.
    the ibm alliance surely will focus on business to business, schools and medical institutions.
    Apple pay is spreading like wildfire ....all of this is wrapped up nicely in a very secure ecosystem..
    other technology companies in Silicon Valley and Seattle are trying to package up a seamless ecosystem but they are so far behind , it is nearly fruitless...pun intended..and if I have to wait thru six months of refinement only as Apple salts away billions , I will just collect my dividends and modest twenty percent..
