Apple Inc. Message Board

    AAPL longs and shorts......Must read....

    It's time for the board of directors to replace the CEO. Short term, sure there's uncertainty. Longer term, they need a visionary like Jobs was. It was a desperate move last year to go after Samsung legally, and it backfired in a big way.

    As crazy as this sounds, they may have to rebuild the brand. It's no longer a growth story, a ton of competition, and let's face it.....Who will buy a wearable product like a smartphone wristwatch? It really can't hurt to make a move, and it will send a message to the market that AAPL needs to change going forward.

    The only other alternative would be a viable acquisition strategy, buying some profitable companies with synergies that would be accretive to earnings....But that's not their style, so something has to give.
