Apple would be so much better served by getting away from dependence on the iPhone for the majority of profits. New product lines are a must, and soon, as the smartphone arena is jammed to the gills. Apple can get news cred about company developments OTHER than new products for only so long, then it must produce!
Yahoo websites are still malfunctioning badly. Instead of incorporating every little tweak as soon as it is "ready"(nudge, nudge), why doesn't Yahoo accumulate those tweaks and introduce them as a package? That way, at least, its sites would not be f**ked up on a daily basis, as they are now. Such stupid IT decisions I have never seen. Oh, wait, I forgot about Microsoft.
Native American tribes had it right when they threatened to kill photographers who tried to take their photos without permission, as they thought it would steal their souls. Maybe that part is superstition, but taking anyone's photo at any time w/o permission should be illegal and tightly enforced.
As WS has made the lion's share of AAPL sell side profits that can be made, a direction it moved on last September, it has since "analyzed" in its infinite wisdom that the buy side is now the place to be.
What WS does(to make the most profits), the nation follows. Washington sees to that.
Ho-hum, and the market agrees. Look out for next quarter, could be real bad. Perhaps time to realize that Camelot may be done?
Gradual price slide will continue down to.........?.
A 2 cent profit beat is a beat? Not to me. Also, share buybacks and higher divvies do not increase revs and profits and are short term aids at best. Increasing revs and profits determine future stock value. When you look past the whiz bang distractions, sales are weak and getting weaker. Apple needs new products!, not more gadget stock pumps that don't increase revs and profits. Snake oil, anyone?
Who is the idiot here? You misunderstood that I was trashing IBM? Not at all. Just stating what was moving the market. Show less emotion and concentrate on the facts. Much better.
Has Apple had its 15 minutes of fame?
I can only remember how hot Blackberry was 6 or so years ago. Look at it now.
Apple's board needs to dump Cook for a more proactive CEO. Cook doesn't get the public brand development side of business that was a unique strength of Jobs. Apple must have that strength again, or....?
Obvious that Cook is a CEO failure. The Board must replace him NOW.
Jobs was wrong some, but selecting Cook as his successor was his worst mistake. The Peter Principle held true once again, as Cook rose to the level of his incompetence as Apple CEO.
He is too introverted and private to hold this highly public job that requires a constant public presence promoting Apple as it should be done.
The real problem is that Apple is no longer the dynamic company it was under Jobs. Cook does not know how to keep Apple in the forefront of the public eye as Jobs did, nor does he know how to find someone who can do that.
Don't know about the rest of you, but I am greatly disappointed. Never thought I would be, but this malaise has gone on for much too long. Apple may have gone rotten.
So tired of this BS market where bad news never harmed its bull run since Jan 1, and good news pushed it higher. When Bernanke's QE slows or stops, look out below, as that is the only constant in this manipulated market.
Back up to PO price soon, then back up to highs. But, cannot expect the past 3 months growth to be the norm going forward. Also, a market correction is coming within the next year due to fiat money printing that cannot continue. Be careful out there.
Look at each day's top market stocks by percentage moves. Every day they are different, no consistent movers day after day. A real market rally shows much more stock-specific consistency. This generalized pattern of across the board movement is a sure sign of manipulation.
but they were not real. CPA firms can be bought just like anything else, and even in the best case they have to depend on data any firm gives them that may be inflated or even false.
I am not comfortable with Tesla latest figures.
