FB beat earnings and member increases, decided to invest in the future. Not the opposite of a blow out. FB Will grow users only in low double digits from a base of 1.4 billion users. Only so many folks on the planet. I am fine with their growth projections.
Of course, there is no future in 4 billion video downloads or all the other new things they are doing well.
the margins are down because they are investing in future growth since this industry evolves actively.
however, they will make a lot of money next year and most people know it so your short position will not pay off. Sorry, Mr. Bored to be Kored.
he understands his market and where it is going and how to monetize it. whether the stock goes up or down next week, we all know where it is going over the long term…..up a lot.
Phase II results look great, the future is bright for GILD's HIV franchise….as well as it's HCV franchise...
Your negativity bias shines through- everyone knew and it was widely reported that the iWatch was being developed long before the clones came out - the iWatch had some technical manufacturing problems that delayed it a couple of years, similar to the Apple TV story right now. I know it is difficult to wrap your head around the copycats actually getting to market before the actual creator of the concept, but that is mostly what happened. So go ahead and call the iWatch a copycat, cubit. It is ok that you secretly hate apple, I will profit from your hate and that of your collegues, who price this stock below the average PE of the overall market, and after cash backed out, WAY BELOW the average PE of the market. Good luck with that hate….
PS- if 6 other manufacturers came out with digital TV systems within the next year, and then apple came out with a much better one the year after that, would you say that Apple imitated the others? If so, you are unfair because Apple has obviously been working very hard on the TV ecosystem concept for several years. Get my point????
This market has their heads up their Buttinkskys, pricing this stock at a PE of 12 (after cash backed out).
This should be above the average PE of the market, not below it. Mr Market, why are you so DUM???
I am actually being facetious. I think APPL is a great stock and I remain confused about why the market consistently underprices it, well below the PE of similar tech companies, even legacy ones. And apple is at the forefront of innovation on a number of fronts, with the ability to buy new technologies if they cannot create them in house. What is the matter with you, Mr. Market???
hey you dummies, I am actually suggesting the stock is underpriced, and that the market does not know what it is doing on pricing AAPL….
The low PE (12 after cash is backed out) is probably related to the riskiness of the iPhone franchise. Gee, pretty risky on that one, even with apple pay, new apps, integration with OSX, etc. I am pretty fearful, and I guess others are too, leading to the very low PE to reflect the risk!
I guess at a P/E of 15.7, apple is priced to perfection, and any year the WWDC does not wow people, the stock is going to take a hit. After you back out cash, the P/E is 12. I guess that is too lofty to make folks feel safe at these levels…..
