Apple has been a good and profitable investment over the years for me and I am grateful for that...I was looking forward to today's huge media event, especially after the last two weeks the internet media was on fire with so called "Ieaks"....I am disappointed in today's press announcement but that is not the reason I have decided today to sell my Apple Shares
The reason is in my opinion Apple has become to snug for my taste..Tim Cook bashing the competition this girl did not like at all....let your new innovations stand on their own merit but he had to not only bash the competition but it goes so far to say they are confused...I feel Mr Cook is the one confused as I am sure I am not the only one that likes the new tablets/laptop combination tablets that Mr Cook made fun of....I hate the bashing and the snugness and for that reason I have decided to sell all of my shares..
His quotes that truly annoyed me...
Coming out swinging at the iPad 5 launch, Apple CEO Tim Cook knocked competitors for what he said was a flawed tablet strategy.
"Our competitors chased netbooks," said Cook. "Now they're busy making PCs into tablets and tablets into PCs," he added, in reference to hybrid tablet and what Intel is calling 2-in-1 portables.
"Competitors are confused," he said. "We believe deeply in this category and we're not slowing down on our innovation."
I am so glad you sold your apple stock because for every seller there is a buyer.i picked up your chunk and a lot more.apples mojo is way back.the stock has nothing but upside through january earnings.you will be running back to mommy wishing you never sold.see you at 620
Wow, do you write an editorial on message boards every time you sell a security? Perhaps the smug attitude you criticize Cook of is displayed more by you in your comments.
Anyway, thanks for your shares back.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
So it's okay for Samsung and Microsoft to run ads bashing the hell out of Apple, but not okay for Tim to speak to a much smaller audience about his opinion of a flawed business plan by Apple's competitors?
I added this "alias" to my long established Yahoo account today yes in order to post here instead of using my own name....I have owned Apple for years and like I said I am grateful for it but Tim Cook making fun of the tablet/notebooks I did not appreciate at all....Please note I did not say Apple is a sell ...I only posted my personal reason why I am cashing in now.
