  • Apple's Magic Is Broken [View article]
    My previous phone was a larger screen Android.

    The software is buggy and crashed and crashed.

    iPhone 5 since last December.

    There is NO comparison to iOS and Android software. The iOS software with all its functionality simply outperforms anything on a Samsung phone.

    The larger screen is overrated. Maybe for watching Netflix..but for 95% of phone usage no need for a larger screen.

  • Apple: How To Admit You're Out Of Ideas [View article]
    Apple went from 32 billion in revenue to 160 billion in revenue in four short years and now EVERYONE including this clueless writer knows how to run their business better than current management.

    The cash is being used in the best manner the BOD deems appropriate.

    The reduced shares and 3% dividend Apple would have to pay out offsets any borrowing costs.

    Come on folks....Apple has been successful and will continue to be the market leader.

    As an Android user for three years and new iPhone user I still marvel at the efficiency of the ecosystem syncing all my information between PC , iPad and iPhone.

    It has made me a more productive business person.

  • Apple: Probably Going To Remain Painful For The Average Investor [View article]
    My point was Apple never was given a bloated P/E ratio during a period of unprecedented growth but now gets a 40 % haircut after reporting record numbers last quarter after the most successful launch of the iPhone 5. The market can't have it both ways.

    I really have no clue but just feel that someone has to write an article that Apple cannot grow much because the billion number is just too big. But that is not all bad.

    Cash flow going forward should at least award Apple a P/ E equal to the S and P (16).

    There are utility stocks valued 75% higher than Apple and they are dependent upon government for pricing.

    Going to put head back in the sand.

    Investing is simple...
    buy a stock with a really high P/E like Amazon and Netflix ....their stocks are at 52 week highs and they should double to keep up with their P/E ratio...

    Why would anyone buy a stock whose sales went from 32 billion to 160 billion in four years....this company should have had growth of 20% a year for sixteen years instead of accomplishing it in four and never having a P/E higher than 20.....

    Heck Apple share price would be $133,637 a share if they had a P/E like Amazon and had zero earnings.

    I think I have this investing thing down now that I realize a larger than life P/E ratio is the ticket to a successful stock.

  • Apple - It's All About Earnings [View article]
    New strategy ....selling my Apple and buying

    Google, Netflix , amazon , VZ, and anything else with a higher P/E than Apple with a minimum P/E of 50.

    Seems the higher P/E....higher stock price and higher 52 high.

    Thanks to all the analysts for convincing me that my investment will be a winner.

    If Apple's earnings increase over the past 4 years had been spread over 16 years their growth would be plus 20% for the 16 years. Punish Apple for accomplishing this in only 4 years. 40% haircut.

    Makes sense to me now.

  • Apple: Up 10% From The Bottom And Going Higher [View article]
    You forgot that people upgrade their phones on a two to three cycle. This planed obsolescence means sales continue over and over again.

    As smartphone apps continue to control our daily life experiences , there is a reason to upgrade to the latest technology.

    Emerging markets are now just getting a taste of smartphones as their carriers upgrade from 2g, 3 g to LTE 4 g. Just look at China, this cycle is just starting.

  • Apple: Do You Hear The Crickets? [View article]
    The next time I get on an airplane , I will peek into the cockpit and when I see the pilots using the iPad for navigation, I will remind them that toys are not allowed.

    Amen to this sermon!!

    Apple did not get where they are by not being smart.

    It takes time to get a product ready to sell 5 million in one weekend.

  • Apple: Do You Hear The Crickets? [View article]
    I agree the future is what counts...but....what have they demonstrated for five years....growth number the likes NO OTHER COMPANY HAS EVER ACHIEVED,!

    If Apple had grown 20% a year for 16 years instead of 60% a year for five years ..the stock would be trading like Netflix and Amazon...

    Apple was never.....never given a valuation equal to its growth.
    Now that it has gone from 32 billion in revenue to $160 billion in revenue in 4 years...The company cannot grow billions on billions more. It is not possible. But to valued at a big discount to the market makes no sense.

    But to give a 40% haircut to its stock during the most successful quarter in the history of technology companies....

    My point is if Apple was to drop 40% it should have been from a much higher stock price.

    The cash flow from Apple going forward is worth more than any other company in the s and p 500..

    Even if their revenue drops 20%

    I am an accountant and know that you can start from the top or you can start at the bottom looking at numbers. When they are this impressive you do not lag the whole market the way Apple is.

    You just can't have it both ways....

    AAPL stock price with a P/E of growth and non growth companies

    KO pe of 20.......Apple stock price would be $882
    VZ. Pe of $155....Apple stock would be $6836
    T. Pe of 30.....Apple stock would be $1323 of $23.57....Apple stock would be $1039 of 46.88.... Apple stockwould be $2067
    IP. Pe of $27.29.....Apple stock would be $1203
    FB. Pe of $1905...Apple stock would be $84011
    AMZN. Pe of $3031.....Apple stock would $133,667

    My point is Apple with their five year growth NEVER had a P/E higher than 22.

    Someone please explain how you can value all these other companies, some with billions of debt higher than Apple.

  • Samsung Galaxy S4: A Gift To Apple Shareholders [View article]
    I can share my experience with Android for almost 3 years...

    Widgets, gadgets, shortcuts.......battery drain.

    OS updates....System crash. Apps no longer working.

    I am expert on system restore. Two hours to reset all the screens.

    Record reboot ....17 times until the phone died. And that within minutes after Sprint giving me a new Android phone.

    So two Android phone crashes in the same day. lucky me.

    Problem fixed......iPhone 5 and one happy camper.

    You can adjust the font size on an iPhone so the letters are as big as your eyes can handle.

    You can user the Reader feature on Safari to make the web page story stripped of all ads and only the story ...again with a setting available to increase the font.

    I used an Android with a bigger screen before I switched to an iPhone 5. I may be missing a few letters on the left and right side of the larger screen, but where my focus is (in the middle) its the same reading experience.

    Over 90% of smartphone users use very few of all the features any OS. Email, texting, web browsing and app usage covers the majority of phone usage.

  • Apple: Last Year I Said Sell -- Buy Now? [View article]
    Your analysis is wayyyyyy off the mark....

    Based on Amazons P/E ratio .

    Apples stock price would be $133,667 per share.

    One of these companies generated $427 million dollars A DAY of revenue and $137 million dollars of Cash Flow PER DAY..

    I will let your do your own research on which company is Apple and which one is Apple.

    Get to work....

  • It's Time For Apple To Buy BlackBerry [View article]
    Some examples...

    IPads as Patient Guides
    Mayo Clinic has begun using content- and app-loaded iPads to help guide patients through their hospital experience.

    Johns Hopkins’ internal-medicine program adopted the same policy in 2011. Medical schools at Yale and Stanford now have paperless, iPad-based curriculums.

    University of Chicago iPad project

    At Crouse and other Syracuse hospitals, the iPad tablet

    Members of St. Joe’s infection prevention staff also use iPads to record information

    One example of an Apple itunes app that many Canadian doctors use for reference purposes is Rx Vigilance

  • It's Time For Apple To Buy BlackBerry [View article]
    Hard to distort need to do a little research.....

    So if I buy a BB Z10 today I can:

    Use my MLB app
    Use my Slingbox app
    Do online banking
    Deposit checks with camera
    Do bill pay
    Buy and sell stocks on my brokerage app
    View images in map app
    Sync my outlook on my PC
    Backup my data wireless
    Have a cloud system to sync my data between all my devices and computer

    If this is true, please give me directions to the nearest phone store so I can spend my money to do these better than my iPhone.

    Your comments about BB taking back market share. Please read...

    The Premier 100 Conference focuses on both the business strategies and technologies that are transforming today’s organizations.

    Meanwhile, Matt Hamblen talks to IT users at P100:

    ...nobody, out of about 20 CIOs and senior VP's of IT...said they would be endorsing or adopting the platform, except for one CIO who...said, "I only use BlackBerry because my boss wants us to." ... At a luncheon...I also asked a group of eight CIOs...if anybody was moving to the new BlackBerry device, and everybody but the current BlackBerry user shook his head...some even grunted, almost in disgust.
    One of the CIO's cornered me later and said..."All that doesn't matter if the users buy something else as their phone." a Bring Your Own Device world, the users get to decide what works. CIO told me, "We battled the users over BYOD and the users won.".
