It rarely happens folks and it has taken a concentrated mis-information campaign to get it here.
In the end this is just short term manipulation before Apple introduces the next watch, a streaming deal and whatever else Jony Ive has up his sleeve. Apple can't live off the iphone much longer because growing that franchise will be difficult. They need a recurring stream of revenue from services which I've been preaching for two years. I think they know that and are preparing for it.
That's why guys like you will never be able to afford apple stock. Unable to separate fact from fiction. The 50 plus billion in revs last qtr was their second best ever 2nd qtr. The 10 mil. in profits tops all the fangs combined. You need to troll in penny stock boards. That's where all the pikers here belong.
Once they reach critical mass on the high end they have 85% of Android in the middle to chip away with their midstream 4s and eventually the 6 series will allow for a nice price cut. Apple could care less about sprinters, they are built for a marathon.
At a time when analysts seem fixated on iPhone sales leaving all 4s sales for Q3 was a stroke of genius. Apple will beat low guidance this qtr and sets them up for new product announcements coming in June.
Just because apple doesn't want to make a bad deal in TV streaming doesn't mean they have lost their clout. They remain the single biggest power in content aggregation in the world.
Never. If making 10 billion in profits is a disappointment then buy Facebook and hope they ever make 20 billion in year.
Apple has them right where they want them. I guarantee apple surprises from many different sides on the plus side.
How about your not posting any longer because you had so much money but still infect penny stock boards. I had you pinned for a piker from jump street.
Apple getting the ducks in order
Not one share from my cold dead hands.
In face without Cook there would be no China for the phone or apple pay
They conveniently forget how he went to China and not only got the phone in but somehow managed to get a deal for apple pay. There is no doubt we don't have China with Jobs or just about any other CEO I can think of. Now he is doing the same with India as they will soon give apple a waiver to open stores there. The problem with today's immediate gratification investors is they lack patience and understanding of the business cycle.
If there was an overriding factor that happen time and again just as it is happening with apple It was two simple things. The hardest part of becoming a gorilla is massing enough customers with barriers to entry in order to have the time to not worry about being first to market and once entering a space don't worry about being the best. An example is apple was pilloried about its inferior maps and more recently their inferior music. Look how apple refined and improved maps and soon you'll see the same with music. This is all setting up with their entry into the TV market. The idea that they are behind the curve completely misses apples competitive advantage. That affords them the luxury of letting others show their hands and then swooping in and using their ease of use platform to dominate the space. There is little anyone can do that apple can't do better.
After doing the dd I am sure apple is planning a companion healthcare device to the watch that will require FDA clearance. They have hired experts across the landscape and have a secret lab where something big is brewing. This is the kind of BIG that moves the needle and changes lives. Health and fitness with the ability to monitor the heart and blood is something we all need and want but just don't know it yet. Thousands of lives can be saved by just keeping track of some simple things that go on every day inside the body that can help and hurt us. It is within technology's ability to make a device that will solve this problem and apple is going to do it.
