Its the board stupid? OPtions? Are you like stupid?
And there is NOTHING wrong with this board? We went through this eXact same thing LAST YEAR!
Dejavu again? Markets up big and Apple is down, after China Mobile deal, after great Holiday quarter. THis is crazy! This board has NO CLUE about how to Maximize shareholder value and protect them!
Great post, some of these people have not the first clue of what Icahn is saying to unlock shareholder value. They stand behind Apple's balance sheet, great products and great earnings. That is all true and all the reason why this stock should not have lost 50% of it's value from it's high !
THAT IS NUTS! And the fact this board allowed that to happen without any action is reason for any sane stock holder to take pause!
Bottom line is if you believe in Apple 100% and think the stock will goto 700 or beyond. You should 100% be supporting Carl Icahn's proposal. Don't listen to media type or idiots keep calling Icahn names and this or that. LOOK AT WHAT HE IS PROPOSIGN FOR YOUSELF! Use your own brain!
Again, if you think Apple is bullet proof and will goto $700 or beyond, There is nothing wrong with buying stock on the cheap at $525 or $540!Saying no to that is like refusing a lottery prize after you won!
Please , some of you people need to educate urself on the capital markets and how they work before speaking nonsense
They let idiots write anything without any reaction so people get more and more brave. And shorts jump on that and it becomes a tidal wave.
Only way to stop things like this is Wall street savy, nothing to do with Business fundamentals or earnings, that is what Icahn has.
Notive how since Icahn got involved those stupid attacks also stopped? But since Apple board STUPIDLY came out against Icahn, it has started back up?
If you don't shares to retrace 300s, need to vote with Icahn. We tried it the Apple Board way and the result was stock losing 50% for NO REASON last year!
And look at what happened to the stock since they opposed Ichan? Shorts gettign very brave again.....They love it when Apple don't agree with Ichahn
See another garbage report that Apple board is just letting it spread! Apple pays the HIGHEST Factory wages in China! Even if it's $2, most people there make less than $1
This morning, another Downgrade due to MORAL CONCERNS by standpoint research. I mean this is what I mean, Apple board does not squash these garbage reports by garbage analysts! And people gradually believe it and it spreads like Wildfire like last year. Nobody is saying Apple board doesn't know how to create ,manage but dealing with Wall Street is a huge part of most boards!
Look at ALL THE NEGATIVE articles out now that people know this board is back to it's old ways and not taking Icahn's suggestions. Shorts all bailed when they thought Cook was going to work with Icahn, now they are all back.
They have a board who let's analyst and media write anything about them without any response ,even flat out lies. That is how we dropped to 385 last year.
When Icahn got involved, that was when Apple started heading up and the negative articles stopped because these people know Icahn will snap at them and come after them.
But now since Apple board decided to go against Icahn, all the negative articles starting again? It's like suddenly people got brave again.
We need Icahn or going back to 300 again and people will be screaming daily how none makes any sense...
We can debate the various points/observations about Apple raised in this story and by analysts…but what “revolutionary innovation” has Google/Amazon/Facebook/Twitter/Samsung displayed in the past year? Why is it all these guys get a pass on this issue but somehow Apple is the unique case of “missing ingredients” and “lacking innovation”? Apple has displayed more innovation in the past year than all of these company COMBINED. These other guy’s version of “innovation” are ridiculous videos of phony drones, new ways to spam or spy on its user base, and pathetic hardware that literally nobody buys (like the complete failure of Samsung’s “watch”). They are ALL one trick ponies or idea thieves with no clear path of “innovation” ahead of them, yet somehow Apple is the only one held up to this level of scrutiny.
And again today, back to 385 if continue to sink with the ship known as the Apple board when it comes to Wall Street
Apple board is clueless about Wall Street, sat by like morons all the way down to 385 with NO answers.
Unless you are interested in riding down there to 385 again, you need to think about another approach.
Apples rise up coincided with Ichan involve,ment, you are a fool if you think it was a coincidence.
I am with Icahn all the way, the man is not perfect but I know he won't sit there and do nothing and watch stock fall to 385 again
I heard the ignore this downgrade and that downgrade all the way down to 385 last year. Fact is Apple board is clueless about Wall Street, Icahn is right, I am not interested sitting around like idiots like Apple board again down to 385
I will be 100% with Icahn
Whoever don't agree is just as dumb as Apple board, if you want $385 AGAIN, FINE, GO FOR IT, not me! i AM WITH iCAHN 100%.
