When the founder goes, his original vision goes with him. That original vision is what made MW, but w/o it ......it's just a matter of time. Zimmer was the face of MW and the only thing that made it stand out from its competitors. Maybe they will still use him for its commercials, if they are smart they will.
If I had all the parts German car dealers remove from owner's cars and throw out that are still in good operating condition, I could start the largest used German car parts house in the world, for free. But, I bet they sell most of those still-good parts they remove from all those cars to used parts houses and do not send them to recycling. Anyone know for sure?
XLK has lower fee, but much worse performance. Low fees can be misleading, as low fee funds always must be compared to others in net performance for proper DD. It is the net that matters, always.
Ho-Hum, more of the same.
They sure try to work AAPL with anything they can find. Some might work, some won't, like this one.
Hitting 200 DMA means watch closely for bottom and best entry price. Even a bounce will be profitable, but LTBH is better for most seeking greater stabilty. The global RE market is far from topping. Actually, the cycle is much closer to its past bottom than it is to its future top so lots of room for growth left.
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.
