  • Why Is The Market Not Buying Apple? [View article]
    .. . " I was expecting more" . . .

    =========================

    And that is the problem . . . and has been for a long time.

    Compare AAPL with other companies in the sector or even the whole market . . . and it stands far and above from most.

    But those unreasonable "expectations" keep hammering it.

    Unreasonable (extraordinarily high) performance has lead to unreasonable (extraordinarily high) expectations.

    That is what's causing the hold back.

  • Apple: Waiting Is The Hardest Part [View article]
    Kind of a worthless article.
    Shareholders already understand the risk/reward tradeoffs.
    Those who don't . . . shouldn't be holding the stock.

  • Why Apple Will Repeat History And Plunge Into The Abyss: Time To Call It Quits [View article]
    Based upon the tone of your article, it sounds like you have taken quite a loss on Apple.

    Trading Apple lately, has not been for the faint of heart.

    Personally, I think it is one of the best companies in the world.

    And . . . it's not over.

  • Loopholes allowed Apple (AAPL) to avoid $44B in U.S. taxes from 2009-2012, claims a Senate report released shortly after Apple's official statement. Though peers have also been accused of using offshore havens, the report argues Apple went further by creating a subsidiary (responsible for ~1/3 of profits from 2009-11) that used differences in U.S. and Irish law to have no residence whatsoever. Sen. Carl Levin calls this "the Holy Grail of tax avoidance." Also, while Apple claims $6B in FY12 federal tax payments, the report claims the real number is $2.4B if one backs out deferred payments on foreign cash (only paid if/when the cash is repatriated). [View news story]
    Know the laws.
    Follow the laws.
    Use the laws to your advantage.

  • "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]
    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.

  • Why Apple Should Not Pay A Dividend (Or Do Anything Else Incredibly Stupid) [View article]
    In my humble opinion, Rocco is one of the best contributors to SA.

    Most of the stuff I read on SA get a 1 star.

    Rocco usually rates much better than that on a regular basis.

    For this article . . . I maxed him out. Why? Because he makes a lot of sense.

    Good job Rocco! Good perspective and well written.

    What a worthless piece of trivia.

    How about Mispoke Investment Group?

  • 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's WWDC Preview: Thoughts On Innovation, Market Position, And Observer Psychology [View article]
    Excellent article and underscores the fallacy of predicting Apple's health and direction . . . based upon "single point data."

    I do not waste my time reading "single point data" articles. Usually, those authors fail to see the "bigger picture" and have an agenda.

    Thank you for a refreshing viewpoint.

    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."

  • 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.

  • Still Avoiding Apple: Stellar iPhone 4S Sales A Result Of Hype [View article]
    You need to get your facts straight.

    Sounds to me that you have some type of axe to grind with Apple. Show us a better company.

    I'm not buying what you are selling.

    Long AAPL.

    Think taxes, dude.
    20 trillion in debt by 2016 ring any warning bells?

  • 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.
