I hope their ratings tank even further. Although this type of behavior attracts attention, when you get people angry enough at the lack of professional objectivity, they just switch off. Like I heard Najarian say....."UNBELIEVABLE". Only sane one in that bunch.
That sort of one dimensional thinking is why Munster is a lousy analyst. He totally disregards the possibility that demand could be higher in the presence of even better supply.
Arguing from yet another side, The Core's Matt Lew points out that Apple's 9 million figure does not include any of the iPhones -- tens of millions of them, he estimates -- that were ordered online but have not yet been delivered. Lew agrees that 9 million distorts the picture, but from the other direction, making sales look lower than they are.
This is a point I was trying to make yesterday. Because there was no preorder for the 5s except in China, there are lots of people who ordered online whose sales didn't count this year because they could not be delivered on Fri or Sat. That is the way Apple's accounting works. Last launch there were plenty of internet orders that DID get delivered by then, and thus they WERE counted.
LOL, promotional deals always mean that the mfg. is in trouble, especially in an industry where every new customer has a high likelihood of getting hooked on the sport and purchasing up to 9 guns.
Shut up about Apple here, put it on the AAPL board. Nobody wants to hear your uninformed drivel about it here.
LOL! I wonder if this super analyst Tina Wells can produce charts tracking how "cool" the iPhone has been over time. This kinda carp has to p'ss anybody off. The only thing I agree with her on is where she said "I don't think". I will say another thing. My neighbor is a teacher in an upper crusty high school and he has told me recently that it has shifted from Galaxies back to iPhones and there is a lot of positive buzz over the new iPhone. "Awesome" is the word they are using according to him.
The only problem with throwing out the outlier is that, with only two "analysts", they are BOTH outliers, lol. It sounds like they only want to throw out Hamann's estimate, which I think we all knew was most likely to be off base.
What I have an even bigger problem understanding is why Yahoo doesn't do anything about it. There seems to be no response to reporting a thread as abuse. There used to be a choice of "not related to the stock".
They must only be concerned about click count and not about quality of the information exchange process. That's also probably why they got rid of the notifications, reduced their click count / refresh counts.
This sell off seems overblown, in light of that fact.
Be careful, now that you too have said you have Datbedumb on ignore, he'll start posting lies about when you have bought and sold (as if he could possibly know, LOL), in a desperate attempt to get you to take him off ignore and respond to his posts. Seriously, anyone who wastes time responding to his posts is just giving him a paycheck, as paltry as it must be. To all those who have not yet done so, put him on ignore and be done with it. It is not worth the entertainment value to subject yourself to a liar's propaganda.
OK, so everything I say is by your definition a "pump", even when I'm not posting here I'm pumping the stock, and if I push back on anything you say, oh great master of the SWHC board (LOL), I am pumping. I gotta put you on ignore now and someone else can deal with you. Life is too short to waste time arguing with a moron and I seriously doubt that anyone is influenced by your drivel.
They are going too far. It's gonna hurt their ratings. I think Cook is sandbagging the guidance just to F the whole lot of em and they're gonna eat much bigger crow later than they would now.
Next time cut and paste the article headlines exactly. I can't find the articles by doing searches on various sentences in your post, therefore I think you made it up.
He's a senile old hypocrite. He actually said that if Steve Jobs were still alive he'd still own the stock but after reading his book he now knows what a bad person Steve was (he says) and there's no way someone like that could have created a great company for the long term. But he did old man, HE DID. I suppose drill sergeants in boot camp should start being nice and wear a flower in their uniforms. Anyone who survived Steve Jobs and was able to satisfy him has to be a pretty great person and a talented one as well. I suppose the fact that Tim Cook is a very nice person has no bearing at all? Very irrational.
Yeah I like your thinking. Deliberately hold back on supply enough to beat the analysts estimates handily in this, the launch quarter, and spread a little of that over into the next quarter to even out the YoY growth figures between the two quarters. Brilliant.
You get the luck of the draw with Motley FOOL. They're just a bunch of bloggers like we are here. It's funny as hell the way you speak as if they were some sort of authoritative or professionally qualified source.
I told you before. I trade around my core positions. How can I ever be a bagholder? You're an idiot anyway. Everyone who invests on a longer term basis than a daytrade is a bagholder in your book. What are you doing talking fundamentals of a company since that is practically irrelevant for a pure daytrader such as yourself? Just stick to your 50dma analyses and shut up.
