Selling here boarders on ridiculous. Shorts are a farce. Hedge fund selling is a useless indicator as MOST are losing their shirts this year. Keep paying me that dividend apple. I will just sit and wait for 150 and more. Trade it up and down. Doesn't matter. FCF is king and apple rules this. sure there will be big qtrs and ones that are smaller around new releases by EVERY QTR Y/Y is bigger and the street knows this. Sell your shares if you need money. Otherwise, just relax and let apple do their thing. TIM COOK, I SEE YOU DOING A GREAT JOB. Thank you
to fair value. PLUS dividend. With a 22x multiple on $10 forward earnings, Fair value is $220/share. Amgen continues to pay out to stick it out. Sellers here are just traders hoping for better prices, trying to tie the market (most are unsuccessful) and weak hands getting shaken out. Keep paying my rising dividend and call me when the stock is 220. Perhaps I will sell you my shares. Probably not as I have held them since 1997. One of the best run firms in the world.
Useless waste of time to discuss that. AMGN is a stock you ALWAYS own. JNJ is also. Don't see the two combining but do see both continuing to grow for about a million more years.
he actually made over $2bl on the Netflix trade. Nice job on that one. but throwing down a rathole on CHK, RIG, LNG etc.
I have to laugh at all the pieces that come out negative on AAPL no matter what they report. Record sales? Oh that was just more countries? Duh, That's the point. Apple continues to streamline its product launches and is GROWING. More iphones. More sales to Macs, ipads, watches, software and services etc. More apple pay users. More future repeat upgrades. How about those massive numbers of Android switchers? Keep sending me my dividends. I will wait for $158 and beyond.
No question if you have time, AMGN will make you money. The markets are just too volatile over the last few months as institutions and hedge funds try to push out investors and steal their shares. Great price here. Just average into it and never sell.
Like I said back in early August. Weak market makes this weaker. down here the stock however is now getting cheap. 2 major issues however.
1. CEO has cancer and is in treatment. I hope he recovers quickly but wall st does not like uncertainty
2. Very slow at growing sales force and hence growing revenue for the products.
So once again, without some solid news, the stock may continue to drift lower and if it doesn't rebound by November, will get caught in year end tax loss liquidations.
Still see a buyout MUCH higher but will take time to recover and sales are key to that.
He says investors have zero confidence in the board or Tim Cook. HA. I have 100% confidence in them.
Says they should repatriate all the cash and pay the tax? What an incredibly ignorant thing for an analyst to say here. Taking on international debt is insane? REALLY. They borrow at pennies on the dollar and can repay it with income from overseas as well. margins 30%+ ROE over 30%.
Apple continues to improve existing products, deepen and expand the lineup and add service and support them like no other company in the world. They slowly buy back stock and raise the dividend and despite all these short term thinking analysts that couldn't possibly run a company themselves, will eventually move the stock higher by default. This summers selloff is a GIFT to smart investors. I continue to buy and own the stock.
$158 is my PT over the near term (its worth that right now). $200 one day and beyond as the float shrinks and dividends rise. Stop watching day to day and listening to traders, media stooges and ANALysts and OWN THE STOCK. Be an owner, not a trader in America.
