Cook doing a terrible job in managing company - we need a fix NOW
AAPL is on the defrensive and analysts find it very easy to manipulate it down by spreading runors or reporting news in a negative way - this morning report said that Foxcon is cutting back on hiring and iPhone 5 production. We don't know the truth - may be AAPL is coming out with a iPhone 5 S soon. AAPL's secrecy culture make it too easy for analysts who want to bring the stock down. AAPL must counter by releasing more info to protect shareholder value. Stock is down by more than 30% and yet Cook has done absolutely nothing to stop the slide and in fact he is making it easier for negative analysts to bring it down more. Cook has the responsibility to burn these analysts by announcing a special dividend or sunstantial buyback or announcing solid plans for the future. Silence is only feeding more uncertainty and will bring stock down to 350. Cook is his worst enemy right now.
Secrecy in the days of Jobs worked because AAPL was ahead in innovation and investors expected AAPL to dazzle the consumers. But lately prodcut releases have not been that impressive and AAPL is no longer a generation ahead of competition (in some cases AAPL is trying to catch up), so secrecy is doing more harm than good. AAPL needs to be more forthcoming in their future plans so investors can judge for themselves if AAPL is worth holding without manipulative headlines caused by analysts who are trying to bring the stock down.
You do not have to be a ph.d. in rocket science to know that Dell and HPQ have sales problems and therefor will reduce their order volume by Foxxcon. As the Foxxcon spokesman said. The slowdown is not caused by Apple products : )
Cook needs to fire ...Why not we start facebook or some way to vote to get rid of COOK ...let people vote on that and that will open the eyes of Board of directors and others .....They should fire him now and bring some one can show leadership and this arrogant CEO goes home
