iOS changed so that if you are not the original owner, retroactively, you can be locked out. Say you bought it online or you inherited the device. This has become a common problem. Class action lawsuit coming for forcing user to use iCloud then charge and locking user from using devices they purchase second-hand unless they have the original receipt. (Trick is if you can't find the receipt, your screwed). Apple Goodwill is down the tube. No more loyalty to customers. Anyone else being locked out!
Better get some dividend or buyback increase. May see hope yet after conference call. Hope for dividend, buyback increase or fired Tim Cook then we may see $130.
YEAH, THEY NEED TO HIRE THE CEO FROM TESLA TOO!
Apple poaching companies for executives. There is just one executive that needs to be replaced and that is the CEO. FIRE the COOK. Board needs to increase dividends and buyback!
Apple use to hype up their innovation but would always deliver with insanely great products. Now its just overrated products. Noone would be caught dead wearing the watch. Executives are just fleecing Apple's cash reserves with high compensation packages. When will the handpicked board wake-up? If they continue, to hype products and deliver HP products, just increase buyback and give shareholder the money rather than pay high executive salaries (top 1%) for nothing.
#$%$ sold 130K and profited $150 million. I don't see Johnathan Ives name anywhere in insider selling. I swear insiders are just fleecing Apple for everything its got since Jobs. Make a bigger phone smaller phone bigger iPad smaller iPad. #$%$?!
FBI situation has nothing to do with terrorists. Morons. However, if Apple caves-in no one will trust Apple Pay. Certainly would you trust having your fingerprint and all your data on your Phone. ApplePay and TouchID were the most idiotic ideas. Apple seriously need new leadership. Cook played with fire when he played politics with Washington promoting his personal agenda. Now its affecting the company (not his company, Steve Jobs's company).
Government Special Interest has used anti-terror fear as an excuse to infringe on our Constitutional Right and waged WAR ON CITIZENS! Government has waged war on US citizens.
FBI would leave behind trash full of shredded papers in the San Bernardino crime scene but make such a big deal about cracking the iPhone. I don't understand.
Cook should never have started getting involved with Washington politics promoting his personal agenda. Steve Jobs focused on Apple and ignored Washington and Wall Street focusing on making Apple great. Cook opened the pandora's box. Its like you joined a seminar, now you'll get non-stop junk mail. What Cook did as much worse.
Mass media is trying really hard to use anti-terrorism to wedge its way into invasion of privacy (Obama/Hillary allowing this to happen) much like Patriot Act (Bush). War on Citizens underway! Among other problems, Melissa said what would you say to the family of the victim - leading flawed question. San Bernardino was some #$%$-off unstable individuals not part of a global terrorist movement. Does some shooting justify gun control (gruesome killing also done with hammers and knives)? How about government ignoring warnings to sway public opinions such as 9-11, Benghazi to Pearl Harbor, Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand? (very disappointed with Melissa Lee). Then that guy says if tech companies can use your private data such as maps then why can't the government? Again leading flawed question. If tech companies betray your trust, you lose customers and go out of business. On the other hand, if the US governments betray the trust of the citizens, what are you going to do? Leave the US? Ridiculous argument.
No amount of incidental events should sway anyone's opinion to give up their Constitutional Rights (first, second, third amendment, etc). Don't let Democrat or Republican divert your attention to the War on Citizens being waged by both Establishment parties. There is a few candidates truly fighting for Constitutional Rights of its citizens. They are NOT Hillary, Rubio, Jeb, Kasich.
They tried really hard to use anti-terrorism as an excuse for invasion of privacy. One example of their propaganda was to say tech companies use private data so why can't the government. Answer: If tech companies violate the trust of their customers, customers will stop using their service. If governments violate the trust of the citizens, what are you going to do, leave the country?
I have no position in CMCSA (long or short). This corporation disgusts me.
No you are not an advocate for children. If you are, what is your position on Apple? Who is your Presidential candidate? Explain yourself and we will know you are a hypocritical liar. Disney should rein in its social propaganda but there are much worst corporations.
Hussman sold some Broadcom and bought Disney. Reiterates buy rating. More hedge funds and analyst will follow. Get some DIS before it breaks $100 then trend back to $120.
Disney undervalued. Anyday we will be hit with an upgrade and included usually a gap up. Stop with the bashing if you bet the wrong way. Get out now.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
