    This is how apple gets to 1000+

    I post this now because stock is so cheap it will give new investors perspective
    First off the cash hoard they have guarantees the company will exist for decades because the math never lies
    Think IBM or coke how old are those Dow stocks again and how bout their founders.
    Apple wil do we'll no matter what and suck people into their million app ecosystem
    Upside things to come
    1. Some type of Apple TV or upgraded tv interface
    2. Streaming music sub model
    3. Potential entry into travel or other billion dollar consumer model
    4. Continued addition of unique non apple products to their online stores or retail stores
    5. I-watch device that interacts with Siri and ecosystem - ive might be working on?
    6. Real big push to get apple Eco system and iTunes into all new cars
    7. Apple could enter the exciting 3d printing market not just for their own manufacturing but like what ddd is doing. Apple could create the iTunes of cad design for industry and consumer printing---this is an exciting field and apple could crush it here with their design roots
    8. Apple could buy a Panasonic or sharp for cheap btw and vertically integrate
    9. Buying twitter could pay huge lt divys for mind share
    10. Apple could leverage their huge credit card db to blowout anyone in digital wallet industry
    11. Apple could actually gain huge exposure and share of enterprise mindshare which means you don't need my top 10 so far!
    12. God forbid apple starts putting its hedge fund cash into ground breaking projects like google!!!! Could become an amazing diversified growth fund to spur a Berkshire like empire!
    13. Apple can raise the divvy or buy shares at any time so those dreaming for 400 500 etc are delusional and living vicariously thru non thinking ta doom cases

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • 1. Some type of Apple TV or upgraded tv interface
      **already expected and agreed it won't be a good idea for them to enter this market
      2. Streaming music sub model
      ***already streaming music apps available at will
      3. Potential entry into travel or other billion dollar consumer model

      4. Continued addition of unique non apple products to their online stores or retail stores
      ** non-apple products?? Apple is no longer unique!!! BIGGEST PROBLEM
      5. I-watch device that interacts with Siri and ecosystem - ive might be working on?
      i-watch??? who wants to talk to a watch?
      6. Real big push to get apple Eco system and iTunes into all new cars
      Most car companies already have their partner chosen for this
      7. Apple could enter the exciting 3d printing market not just for their own manufacturing but like what ddd is doing. Apple could create the iTunes of cad design for industry and consumer printing---this is an exciting field and apple could crush it here with their design roots
      This is completely your speculation and that is all
      8. Apple could buy a Panasonic or sharp for cheap btw and vertically integrate
      Integrate into what? is this a repeat of #2?
      9. Buying twitter could pay huge lt divys for mind share
      Twitter will be gone in 2-3 years, this would be a horrible buy
      10. Apple could leverage their huge credit card db to blowout anyone in digital wallet industry
      They COULD HAVE done this already, but they didnt/wont. Plus this shows fear, and someone else bigger would still challenge whatever technology they'd buy out
      11. Apple could actually gain huge exposure and share of enterprise mindshare which means you don't need my top 10 so far!
      no idea what that is so i'm not going to comment
      12. God forbid apple starts putting its hedge fund cash into ground breaking projects like google!!!! Could become an amazing diversified growth fund to spur a Berkshire like empire!
      Google doesn't need apple
      13. Apple can raise the divvy or buy shares at any time so those dreaming for 400 500 etc are delusional and living vicariously thru non thinking ta doom cases
      they wouldn't buy shares just because the stock is dropping, this would be a temporary fix

      so I have a rebuttle question... As apple stands right now, what is innovative about them like their company was 3-4 years ago. Once iphone 5-6-7 come out, and now you have 7 phones that all look VERY similar, just different functions, arent people going to get bored of this. The apple hype was everyone wanted it because it was different, and there was nothing else like it. Their computers are more unique now than their phones which is a huge problem. There is NOTHING to convince the general public to get an iphone now vs a samsung Razr. The few differences are things most people don't give a sh1t about...

    • Isn't Honda starting to implement Siri in their automobiles?!

    • 13. $576.80?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I would like to see an Apple credit card, like Visa or Master card. How about Apple Card?

    • 12. The wildly unstable global economy could get worse. Thanks to "the continuing sovereign debt crisis," "financial market volatility," spiking fuel costs, healthcare costs, and unemployment, consumer spending could tank and bring Apple down with it. Or, credit markets could freeze up and wipe out Apple's supply chain. Volatility could also wipe out Apple's huge wholly-owned hedge fund.

      "Foreign currencies could tank, making the US dollar too strong. "Weakening of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar adversely affects the U.S. dollar value of the Company’s foreign currency-denominated sales and earnings, and generally leads the Company to raise international pricing, potentially reducing demand for the Company’s products." Apple is particularly worried about Europe.

      Apple's foreign partners could prove unreliable. Apple makes significant pre-payments to foreign suppliers. Who's to say how trustworthy those partners really are? "While the Company has procedures to monitor and limit exposure to credit risk on its trade and vendor non-trade receivables as well as long-term prepayments, there can be no assurance such procedures will effectively limit its credit risk and avoid losses."

      Taxes could go too high in the US or abroad. "Current economic and political conditions make tax rates in any jurisdiction, including the U.S., subject to significant change."
