  • Why Analysts Should Not Be Investors, Andy Zaky Edition [View article]
    If you are unsure of what to invest in then why allow a stranger to
    spend your money...

    Each time someone else comes between you and your money they
    will exact a fee ( for the service)..

  • Apple's Cash Balances Approaching $150B [View article]
    Apple might have a target cash number in mind that allows them to
    increase the dividend over the long term and at the same time making large acquisitions at will.
    Apple's large cash position lends to more discussion about a Warren Buffet type strategy.
    Will bigger dividends satisfy large shareholders.. and actract small investors who want to buy in now?
    ( I like the idea of larger dividend rather than preferred shares..)

    Great article!...RE: EPS downside,if margins shrink..? If,If ..Apple
    does China Big..then the massive volume alone will make up for
    margin shrinkage in U.S. and EU for several which time
    it is hoped that both China and India's economies will have matured
    enough to handle wider margins and broader Apple product exposure

  • Apple: Zero Growth ... Really? [View article]
    Are any of the following mega money groups upset?
    Vanguard: 22 billion
    FMR LLC: 21.9 billion
    State Street:19.6 billion
    T.Rowe Price: 23.5 billion
    Susquehanna: 16.8 billion
    J.P. Morgan/Chase: 12.9 billion
    (very short list of investors).....
    Apple has lost about 40% of its market cap since the Dec. reporting
    so if we follow the money...what is really behind the drop in value?

    There are the obvious technical...measurable reasons for sure as
    shown here by Alpha's contributors...but is there something else...
    maybe an intangible reason for a huge drop in value? sentiment
    or even political...China , India...politics...entry into new territories for

    The mega groups mentioned have been very quite so far. ....are these
    major billion dollar international investment managers being patient
    because they are privy to international political negotiations that
    will be favorable to Apple?
