  • Scott Forstall's departure from Apple (AAPL) was "not his decision," a source tells the WSJ. Moreover, sources claim Forstall has clashed with other execs (this is supported by past reports), and was complaining about a lack of big ideas from his unit - some outside of Apple have been complaining about this too. John Gruber: "Forstall was an obstacle to collaboration ... his responsibilities are being divided between four men who foster collaboration." Erica Ogg: "It's Tim Cook's Apple now." [View news story]
    $525 is not out of the question.
    That is where it is headed.
    It will only be there for a short time . . . then . . .

  • The iPad Mini (AAPL) will be unveiled at an Oct. 23 event, claims AllThingsD's John Paczkowski, who previously reported an October launch would happen. A rumor about press invitations arriving on Oct. 10 didn't pan out. Manufacturing yield issues have reportedly delayed the Mini's release. [View news story]
    Then stop flying with the airlines.
    Multi-tasking is required for the job.

  • Don't Trade Apple, Treat The Stock As An Investment [View article]
    Right on!
    On two separate occasions, had I followed these suggestions, my investments in AAPL would have yielded triple. On those occasions, I listened to the noise.
    This time it was different.
    I agree with you totally.
    Apple is an investment and not a trade.
    95% of what is said and written about AAPL is hogwash.
    The biggest mistake an investor can make is to panic.

  • Apple's Juggernaut [View article]
    . . . "Justify an 80 point share price decline in just 2 weeks, a drop that wiped out $75 billion in market capitalization?" . . .

    Market manipulation to maximize short trades . . . pure and simple.

    Name one other company that has performance, leadership, marketing and superior products, within their industry, which can stack up against a company such as AAPL.
    Those are the real reasons why Apple commands the respect, loyalty and interest in their products, world over.

    With that in mind . . . there is much more to come. International sales have become the most important driver now.
    I am long AAPL.

  • Thesis On Apple Remains Firmly Intact Post Fiscal Second Quarter Earnings [View article]
    Over the course of the last several years, I have come to the conclusion that 90% of everything that is written or broadcast about AAPL is hogwash.

    Such tripe is used as a tool to influence performance "projections" and to manipulate the price for quick profit takers.

    Bottom line: Either you believe in this company, their leadership and products . . . or not.

    Under the present environment, there is not a better company to be invested in.

  • "We can't just drill our way to lower gas prices when we consume 20% of the world's oil," President Obama says during his weekly address. Obama took the opportunity to advocate for his "all of the above" strategy, that relies less on foreign fossil fuels, and more on: "solar, wind, natural gas, biofuels, and more."  [View news story]
    Excellent point!

    What Obama has done is this . . .
    dug a much, much deeper hole than Bush left us with.
    Anything, other than another 4 years of Obama, will be an improvement. Let's face it, we just can't afford Obama. Obama is fiscally reckless.
    He is a pathetic and classic example of the "Peter Principle."

    Because Obama and his liberal following hates coal and anything that has to do with coal.
    Yet . . . this country is rich with coal.
    So why aren't we developing coal technology?
    Again . . . Obama hates coal.

    At least that is helping me to pay for gas at $4.55/gal.

  • Apple Shouldn't Do Anything About Its Cash Position [View article]
    Question:

    So what is your criteria and threshold for Apple Inc. to make a distribution to its shareholders?

    In your opinion, should they ever let a dividend or distribute?

  • 4 Signs Apple Shares May Rebound To New Highs, Again [View article]
    I believe that is exactly what happened, just before the closing bell, the last day AAPL announced earnings. Take a look at it.

    Then, a few minutes into the extended trading hours, AAPL recovered nicely. After earnings were reported, it was rocket time.

    No doubt about it, big chunks do tend to move the herd.

  • Why Apple Will Never Trade At $1,000 [View article]
    . . . "Ultimately, AAPL would be broken up if were to become [too] successful." . . .

    Not true. Why not?

    First of all, success has nothing to do with getting "broken up" by the federal government.

    Apple still has plenty of competition in the marketplace. Although quite successful, Apple is not even close to being a monopoly. Apple is not in an arena like say, Boeing and Airbus.
    It's products are not even close to being in the caliber of a "public utility." It is all pure discretionary spending, including the iPad at companies such as airlines and manufacturing.

    What is more, if anything, Apple is doing the government a big favor, by substantially contributing to the tax base and providing jobs. Why would the government want to spoil that? Certainly not because of "success."

  • Apple Should Pay A Dividend And Split Its Stock [View article]
    If it ain't broke . . . don't fix it.
    No splits.
    No dividends.
    No buybacks.
