Even before final loss in Appeals Court on Patent Infringement of Apple iPHONEs,... Samsung has already been losing most of the High End Market to Apple, not only in USA, but also in Japan, Canada, Australia, and now in China too. Apple may only have 8 - 10% of the overall units Smartphone market in China, but that's the majority of the High End (high priced) phone market there. And that's where the Profits are. People with money and successful Chinese, want the iPHONE, not Sam-dung.
look into it, just announced by super-deap-pockets Walmart. Vs. Amzn-Prime, half the yearly membership fee. So Amzn-Primes days of rapid growth are over. 93% of Amazon is only growing 12%/year. Now Amazon Primes growth will slow down too.
I meant Am-zon has a projected 200 PE IF IT EVER MAKES MONEY. Actually, they keep missing profit forecasts --- with Bozos, its always pushed out the forecast for when they will ever make a profit --- like US Congress' promises about balancing the budget -- always "next year".
SheepSkinner... I remember you were BRILLIANT starting in Fall of 2012, when Apple hit $700 (pre-split) and then went down by early 2014? to $390. I was one of the suffering longs, reading your constant posts for years, and you turned out right... till Apple stock turned and went back up and even higher (its now nearly $900 a share, adj. for splits). Luckily I held on, having bought half my AAPL stock in summer 2010 at $248 a share, or $35 adj. for the split, and half twice that (still have current price). WHAT I WANT TO ASK YOU NOW IS WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SHORTING AMAZON? AMAZON WHICH BRAGS 1 DIVISION is GROWING 55% A YEAR, BUT ITS ONLY 7% OF AMZN's SALES NOW, AND THAT MEANS THE OTHER 93% of AMAZON IS GROWING LETHARGIC 12 - 13%. AND EVEN THAT MODEST GROWTY IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT HEAVY PROMOTIONAL SPENDING... BECAUSE AMAZON'sn MODEST GROWTH IS PAID FOR BY LOSING MONEY.
So you and I have a Good Record long-term, depending on our Timing. I think its time to switch to shorting Amazon, trading at 200PE growing slower than Google or AAPL, and no profits. What do you think?
boiler room bermuda. Look at more than the . Fund old NY Post Articles om 2000s. The 1999 spike $30, was an alleged "pump n dump scheme" certain insiders at Siebert pulled. Stock was manipulated to over $30, they dumpedshares for millions, buddies shorted it down to single digits. Siebert loses money now even in bull market.
I have my 1971 Heath-Kit Shortwave Radio I built. Apple knocked off the name.
Sell Goldberg was the hidden brains behind Facebook.
SELL Facebook stock, it was really run by GOLDBERG, who cracked his head, falling while stupidly Texting on a Treadmill. Shows the stupidity of the Management at FB and the overweight out-a-shape girth. SELL.
The SLOW GROWER. 93% of Amazons business is only growing 12% per year Revenues. 7% of Amzn grows 50%, together it makes for 15% corp. growth SLOWER than Apples growth.
probably means she is illegally trying to influence not just rates but also stock prices if Bernanke HedgeFund Ptnr. bought Puts.
Or Big Marketing Spending to try and Boost Sales Growth to 15%, as happened last Quarter, but caused a Loss. That's not a good business model. Suggests that IF Amazon cut marketing spending or price discounts, it would have had virtually no sales growth or growth in range of a pedestrian Dow Jones Avg. Co.
GOOGL AND AAPL BOTH HAD FAST GROWTH AND MADE PROFITS.... Apple's sales went up a lot faster than Amazon's, and Apple made money AND big margins. Icahn calls it one of the best companies in 50 years. Amazon on other hand, has to keep doing price cuts to try and keep sales growth going, and keeps losing money.
I'll go read it. Its certainly NOT 15% Sales Growth per year it just reported FIFTEEN not FIFTY, nor the 200 PE Ratio IF IT EVER MAKES FORECASTED EARNINGS (vs. it usually loses money as in last quarter). By the way it had one (1) division that grew 50% which Bezos crowed about. But think about it, since the whole company's sales only went up 15%, that means rest of the company grew about 7% per year, pedestrian growth, so the stocks not worth much overall. The stocks in all the divisions, not the one good one. Further, since AMAZON LOST MONEY LAST QUARTER, IF THEY HAD TO CUT DOWN ON THE PROMOTIONS SPENDING TO ARTIFICIALLY GROW REVENUES, IF THEY HAD TO CHARGE HIGHER PRICES AND CUT GIVE-AWAYS, THEN AMAZON WOULD HAVE HAD ALOT LESS REVENUE GROWTH LAST QUARTER. Growing Revenues by losing money to boost marketing spending, is not a good business.
