$92 on irrational fear that lasted above 5 minutes. By the time I looked at my purchase order that went through I had bought the shares at 95 and the price was already back up to $100/shr and quickly got up to $108. The company has continued to grow revs and earnings now at high levels. PE at 113 is extremely low and irrational.
I'm glad you agree it makes people more efficient, more productive and more informed. If your only issue is the more connected part, that's not really an AAPL issue, but rather an issue with society in general and how some people raise their children, whether it's in front of the TV, computer, ipad or phone. Are you going to bash the gun makers next? After all, their products kill people, right? Or maybe it has something to do with how the people who use those guns were raised, with a callous indifference to life in general. Society in general is screwed up, that's where you should be laying blame rather than wasting your time bashing here since it will not affect the stock one iota, sorry!
I agree with your post except you say the buybacks increase the amount of dividend per share because the number of shares have decreased. Not so. Apple pays $.52 per share per quater and that is how much they pay no matter how many shares have been repurchased. It is correct that the total spent on dividends decreases as shares are bought back.
No iPhone sales "WILL" be going down because people can't afford the $700 to $800 price tag every year. There is really no need to keep upgrading every year. This doesn't apply to iPhones only. Reality check.... Home sales are going down... Renting is going up. Sprint and all the other wireless provides will be happy to lease you an iPhone "FOR LIFE" and will let you upgrade every time a new one comes out since you " CAN'T AFFORD" to buy one. Also since you want to bring up cars... I will be more than happy to let you know that cars now a days are light years away from the cars of the past on features and reliability. Will you agree That "Smartphone" have made the same advancements? People are keepping their cars longer (used car sale prices are at all times high) because first of all there is nothing wrong with them and secondly they can't afford to buy a new one. Do you get it? Apple is currently at its peak, what you "SHEEP" don't understand is why they did the stock split.
Wow, that is your response....if you do not like the smart phones and people using them, to bad. Live with it.
Now, unplug your PC and donate it to the PC Zombies.
NO, but you should have already sold the 30,000 shares you bought at 121, 117, and 115 to cut losses.
Staying and being informed is one of the blessings of modern technology. If you have an active brain, you desire information and the ability to get it at your convenience. If you are depressed (which you are) you want to hide. Get help!
There is also the smartest of them all. They are the ones that have brain washed you in believing that you need to buy a new "SMARTPHONE" every year. Otherwise society and everyone that you ever knew will banish you. So you think your iPhone makes you smart? How old are you? You have a lot to learn in life!

The number of posts in less than two months say everything
Well, they booked a venue that can seat up to 7,000 versus the usual venue that seats about 750.
So they better have something good to announce. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that they wouldn't book a place that can seat 7,000 unless they have something really special in the works.
I just hope their idea of what is so special is realistic. They have a tendency to say everything they do is amazing or, what was that word they kept using in June so often that people commented on it? Maybe it was "amazing."
I hope they stream the event as they have been lately and I hope the streaming works smoothly. I think it tends to get overloaded, but I guess that's a good sign that a lot of people are watching.
My mom isn't with us anymore, but I will take the time to apologize to my kid.
OK Gang - Please pay attention to the next Apple Meeting in a little less than 3 weeks for the latest rumor that there just may be an introduction to their new Automobile????
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The latest edition of the iPhones, which will likely be unveiled at Apple's September 9th event, will have professional-grade stills and video, according to a report.
The iPhone 6S' and 6S Plus' revamped hardware reportedly supports 12-megapixel images and 4K video, with a front-facing flash, anonymous sources told technology blog 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman.
