Bloomberg reporting that there are no lines at the Apple stores with only 9 people in the Japan store. Did that Bloomberg reporter not get the memo? Was he sleeping all week and not hear or read that Apple will only be taking online pre orders and not instore orders today? What a sad reporter and Bloomberg should be ashamed of itself for putting this out.
Yeah and man that iphone 6 and 6 plus with the bending problem, and not waterproof, and delays will really be a flop.....
And what about apple PAY? Boy who would want to just swipe your watch or phone across a secured interface at the register when we could just carry a wallet full of credit cards, bank cards and cash so that way we hand our cards to clerks and they can clone our cards and end up losing our money. Makes no sense that apple PAY
What would the watch numbers have to do with quiet period. He is not giving guidance, nor giving info on buyback or dividend, just giving the numbers of watches sold... That's not a cause a fraud investigation
$129 and I will never touch this stock again. Apple the Company is amazing.... But Apple the Stock is horrible. Unless you have managed to guess the range exactly to the penny, this has been a stock going nowhere. I have owned this stock 3 times in the past 2 years and every time I get in, I end up holding for months and months. Never fails.
And please don't bash me now and start talking like you know it all.... I don't care to listen to your mentoring. I have many years of experience trading the market. More than 17 years doing it and have done very well doing it. The truth is that Apple right now is acting like a stock that is being controlled, manipulated and held back. Hedge Funds, Money makers, Option Traders, Short Sellers and maybe even Cook himself are the reason why this stock is doing nothing. !!!!!
The float has remained at a stand still of 5.8 Billion shares. Why is Apple not buying back shares as they have stated they were going to do? Where is all of those billions of dollars going to? The last time they bought back shares was just after the split occurred. In the meantime, Apple stock is going nowhere. On upgrades it goes down, on downgrades it goes down, on huge market up days it goes down, on huge down days it goes down. Apple should be looking at these pullbacks and buying back. They cant always assume that they want to buy lower. That's really a dumb way to look at it. If they want the stock price to go up and go up alot, then they need to buy on pullbacks and on rallies as well. This seems to me that Cook and Company want the stock to stay right where it is until they feel like moving it up. In the meantime the shareholders have to wait while every other stock hits all time highs.
They are way up. Either someone thinks we pop $5-$7 points next week or could be head fake. Either way the range the last 2 weeks has been a traders dream. So lets see if it continues.
Exactly. What a crock of you know what. This is incredible the criminals on Wallstreet that keep on getting away with lies and fabricated stories
I understand that they missed by 2 pennies on the EPS and by a couple million on the revenue. I understand that they lowered guidance which was mainly due to cost from the recalled machines. Analysts talking about slowing sales in machines and my response to that is that people usually buy a machine and keep it for several years until it breaks. This is not a cellphone company (ala Apple) where we upgrade every 12 months or so. The bottom line here is sale of Kcup coffee, partnerships with other companies and the big partnership with Coke to bring out this cold soda machine this year. The stock has dropped from a year high of $158 and just in the last 5 days it has dropped from $118 to now $95. This is unheard of and really uncalled for. If management has any cares for this company and wants to save it they better do it now and or convince Coke to buy them out right now and right here.
Question is not if they will buy GMCR, but when they will buy it and how much will they pay. It does not take a brain surgeon to figure that out. Coke has already come out on numerous occasions stating that they desperately want to get into the coffee business and at home beverage industry. More and more households are getting involved in the at home brew it yourself mentality. Not just for the cost savings but the convenience of just walking to your kitchen and making whatever beverage, coffee, tea, etc of their choice instantly without having to drive to a Starbucks, Whole Foods or whatever place people spend tons of money at. I for example love coffee and drink it 3-4 times a day. Everything from Espresso, Late, Ice Coffee, Flavored Coffee etc. My wife hates coffee but loves Soda. She drinks soda 3-4 times a day and always complains about how expensive soda is at the supermarket and how it goes flat as soon as you open the bottle or can. I own 3 Keurig coffee Kcup machines and plan to purchase the soda machine as soon as it is available.
But anyhow, back to the buyout. Coke owns more than 13% of GMCR and a buyout even at a 20-25 premium is a coin in the bucket for Coke. They know that long term, GMCR has tons of growth and value. I predict it happens this year for sure. Why heck, it could happen next week. It's whenever they decide to pull the trigger.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
For the 3 people who gave me thumbs down, you can all put that thumb in a dark, moist and tight place which I am certain you can figure out.
To prove even a bit more reason to believe that Coke (KO) will buyout Keurig (GMCR) , is that the new Keurig Cold Soda Machine will be called Keurig "KOLD" get it? "KO= Coke Symbol.
