  • Dumping Apple Makes Sense For Immediate Income Growth [View article]
    RS: If you wanted more income Now, you should have sold Apple last week and bought T in time to be a record holder on 4/10. Your chart shows you still owned it on 4/11 so you're not eligible for a dividend on the new T until 8/1/15 and on that date you'd earn an extra $70.50; if Apple is above $128.42, then you'd have been better off holding it. You'd also have little to lose and likely a lot to gain by holding Apple until end of June when you could still sell it, and buy T in time for the same August dividend.

  • Apple Share Buyback - The Numbers Talk [View article]
    your math is all over the place; where you properly calculate how many shares can be bought back for $60 billion dollars using your 3 average prices; your subtraction from 946.8 million is incorrect and therefore so are the earnings per share you provide.

  • Apple (AAPL +2.6%) commanded 57% of smartphone profits in Q1, and Samsung (SSNLF.PK) 43%, estimates Canaccord's Mike Walkley. All other OEMs collectively broke even, after having lost money last year. Apple's profit share is down from 2012's 69%, and Samsung's up from 2012's 34% - chalk those changes up to Samsung's share gains and Apple's gross margin decline. Walkley also writes Samsung's Galaxy S4 is off to a strong start (in spite of some reports of overheating), that checks indicate U.S. BlackBerry Z10 (BBRY +0.7%) sales are soft, and that U.K. Q10 supplies have been limited. [View news story]

  • Tablet shipments rose an eye-popping 117% Y/Y in Q1 to 40.6M, estimates Strategy Analytics after digesting Apple's (AAPL) iPad data. For reference, IDC estimates PC shipments fell 13.9% Y/Y in Q1 to 76.9M, which indicates the PC/tablet sales ratio is now below 2:1. The iPad is estimated to have 48.2% of the market, and Android (GOOG) tablets 43.4%. Windows 8/RT (MSFT) is believed to have a 7.4% share, but that only amounts to 3M units. In March, IDC raised its 2013 tablet forecast to 190.9M units, while estimating Android would have 48.8% of the market and the iPad 46%. [View news story]
    ipads, kindles and nooks were available the year earlier quarter - all tablets. For the mathematically challenged, a year earlier 18.7 million tablets were sold, a 117% advance = 21.9 million. 18.7+21.9=40.6
