Groupon let go of Andrew Mason - It's Time that Cook GOES - this was a total embarrassment to see a stock that was at 700 go to a little above 400 in under 3 months - BS remark about his focus is on the long term - NO ONE's FOCUS IS ON THE LONG TERM - YOU IDIOT - YOU SHOULD BE FIRED.
Let Tim go back to doing what he was doing before he was promoted and hire a more communicative CEO. Index pay to stock price!!! Second thought and also pay 50% in stock options and must hold 5 years before selling!!
I completely agree. The market excused Steve Jobs because he was Steve Jobs, a man with vision and an incredible track record. Tim Cook is an average CEO at best and is not going to be afforded the same leeway by Wall Street. He is an idiot who has the power to change Wall Street's perception of Apple, but still turns a blind eye.
Steve Jobs could say, "we're focused on making great products" and people believed it. Tim Cook thinks that's all he has to say. The problem is that he has ZERO vision, no track record, and is living off the coat tails of Steve Jobs in much the same way as Steve Ballmer is living off the coattails of Bill Gates.
But another problem is that the shareholders are gutless to get rid of Cook. The last shareholders meeting was a cheerleading event...
