Holy sheet first time I read you on another board and you are much much much scarier then I thought. Same crazy rhetoric and same vitriol with same slandering. Throw in the "tell me one lie I've told" and the psychosis is repeated. You are one sick sick sick dude.
OSU Think for a moment about the iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad's success. Each sold enormous amounts, each had estimates ranging from DOA to estimates that were dwarfed by actual amounts sold. Also each of those four outsold the previous blockbuster by a wide margin. The time between each of these disruptive products averaged around three to four years.
Apple has acquired a who's who in health and fitness along with the patents to make killer wearable products. The market for such is once again all over the map but a few get it and one predicts over 300 million can be sold at $299 to $399 each in one year about two years out
Apple has 100 of their best under lock and key working on the watch and have hired the brightest in their fields to implement the rolling out of the most stylish device which includes 10 sensors to monitor your health and fitness.
I have not even mentioned how they plan to monetize a billion credit cards with iTunes accounts of the most intelligent consumers with tons of discretionary income dedicated to buying all things apple. There are hundred of institutions underweight in aapl stock and svn more who will buy aapl simply because they enter the DOW 30. Combine that with a general market bumping up against pr's of 17 while aapl sports a 13 to 15 PE and even less if you back out the cash.
Do you really want me to sell into that tsunami?
Just putting aapl in the same boat as nflx or fb is so wrong that I have trouble understanding your thesis. Jony Ive of apple is the pre-eminent designer of our time and he has assumed a premiere spot at the top of apple overseeing the next great advance of disruptive products that everyone will aspire to own or engage with. If anything this is the perfect time to buy aapl and many of the greatest investors have already done so.
The smart watch that aapl comes out with will be so simple and so perfectly utilitarian that you will forget all watches that have come before because apple will have invented a new way to live just like people can't do without a smartphone. I can go on and on but suffice it to say you may very well be correct about a correction coming in some very overvalued names but are totally wrong to include apple.
He knows apple better than most
Andrew if you follow the last 18 months reading aapl's patents, studying the list of new hires in fitness and health and most impotantly understood the enormous ramifications of their recent conference introducing a new language and two disruptive platforms for health and the home you would clearly see the path of growth for aapl in the coming years. The information is public and it is comprehensive in its length and breadth but the products just haven't been revealed that will show the world the new way. By that time there will be little left to gain in aapl stock but enough to make a good bit of money just not a tripling and in my case an almost ten bagger from my initial buys at 120.
Neural network algorithms is going to propel apple's siri to become the behemoth in speech recognition that will propel apple to a trillion dollar market cap. Forget glitches in short term mapping and look at the big picture.
There have been books written on the convoluted triumvirate of AOL,Netscape and MSFT that show how AOL made a pact with the devil despite their partnership with Netscape. I know first hand watching my Netscape stock go from the 20's to the teens and up into 138 as part of aol where I sold 18k shares split adjusted.
What you are saying is the world's greatest innovator is incapable of doing something a state certified math teacher and software developer can easily do himself. Now if that's not arrogance what is?
I spend hours every single day dedicated to aapl's every move using every one of my 148 IQ to understanding their business model which is what makes me an expert. I have made millions studying business models. You only need a few of them to set yourself up for life.
It's interesting you mention msft because i have first hand knowledge about them from the days when Marc Andreeson first invented the browser but that is a book for another time. The e-mails from Netscape's Barksdale to AOL's Case calling Msft Darth Vader are epic.
The idea that you can steal and buy your way into a market can never work long term. Now Samsung has to decide what it wants to be. That is trouble for them and trouble for Google. Apple will sit on top of the mountain come this time early next year.
My bet is despite that your girlfriend will never change from an aapl phone. Taking one area out of context as if you are some expert shows the arrogance which will not allow you to judge properly a stock that is a good value to buy. AAPL has put enormous resources into improving their mapping app integrating close to a dozen entities in the last 18 months alone.
Google had a major head start with their maps and thy could have been an integral part of apple's ecosystem success had they not gone the path of Android which will prove to be a fatal error in their business model.
AAPL will keep improving their maps and google will lose a key area of revenue as a result.
But aapl will not stop there in attacking google, search will be the final nail in their coffin just as Enterprise is proving to be for Microsoft.
It would be wise to read my every word regarding aapl because I am an expert on them.
AAPL will stand alone as the premiere phone developer and seller.
In order to begin the utility of the smart watch. They show you the demographics of android vs IOS but they have to be politically correct when discussing who is going to buy a smart watch.
The Android platform has always been a complete failure as an OS that can withstand the test of time and give people a reliable sustainable secure platform with which to build an ecosystem that will attract the best and brightest developers and, in turn, give people the broadest range of secure fast comprehensive applications to enhance their lives. The only company that has been able to make money with Android is Samsung and they are now finding out that no amount of advertising spent to dupe people into buying their inferior products is going to work despite having stolen key elements of apple's proprietary patented technology.
Now we are seeing Samsung warn as cheap chinese phone makers are squeezing them out of the low end and apple is dominating the high end and about to put a strangle hold on it with bigger and better phones.
While Google tries to spread the diseased Android to make their search money apple is slowly but surely beginning to dry up the search and map gravy train by making a better mousetrap in both key google areas. In the nest year we will see why Samsung carries and 6 PE and Google's inflated PE starts to shring along with the Goog PPS.
AAPL will once again show to be a growth stock with an increasing PE which will give the stock a price close to 1000 where it will finally get fair value and I can sell for my first aapl million dollar profit.
On July 24 he said I quote, Remmeber when I told you 30 x 12 = 360 was on the way? Here it comes". Then he said "I shorted at 440 looking for a close for 430".
There it is for all to see. His exact words proving the lie. Now he wants to claim he made money on that trade that never saw 430 on the close and went straight up day after day into the 500's.
I don't enjoy exposing a serial liar because he needs help but there's the quote.
