the inner city is the only place where apple doesnt dominate. i prefer owning businesses that sell to people who have money and can afford premium products ith high gross margins. particularly with income gap widening. maybe you should consider getting an education and putting down the brick.
apple will take patent litigation more seriously from here on out. only a small bump in the road, but it will create some diversion for a while.
it is not irrelevant and I am an apple stockholder. the apple lawyers who defended this case should be fired immediately. the patent is so vague that it is meaningless and the texas jury was simply too stupid to understand patent law. but those lawyers were vain and thought that they would win, so they didnt clearly demonstrate that the patent was irrelevant. the apple lawyers probably defend against tons of these suits and didnt take it seriously. they should take every patent lawsuit seriously and make sure they crush the trolls at every step. i am pretty sure the apple lawyers will now bury the plaintiff under a mountain of paperwork and will present a much better defense in the appeals court.
they did a horrible job. that patent was so vague that there is no way it should have been awarded, but apple's lawyers are haughty and presented a horrible defense according to the transcripts. losing ANY lawsuit like this is a bad idea. it is like throwing chum in the water. you have to kill all these patent trolls. the patent in question is so broad and non-unique it should be worthless.
an important move for apple. windows users can use the full apple suite through browser for free. apple still needs to make some improvements in numbers, it just isnt up to excel in terms of features.
apple doesnt drive the market in that way. it was hedge funds and money managers who realized there are only a few days until the iwatch event. and then a month for next quarter earnings. another 10% rise would be plenty for me by the week after earnings.
traders are guessing and he got some things wrong. apple is still cheap relative to the market. oil will have a hard time getting a sustained rally as long as the supply demand imbalance exists. probably one more big downward spike to cut production even further on drillers.
i might execute that trade at a later date, but only if oil plummets one more time.
that trade into oil is going to be a great trade someday, but i dont think it is quite ripe as a trade yet. there is just too much excess oil still out there. the pumps have not stopped yet.
he is pretty sorry today
that second drop was very small and turned right around. plenty of buyers to take out the traders who were selling it. now the traders have to cover.
the next earnings report should help to solidify that revenues are fairly solid and that king will earn $2 a share this year. as the market embraces that reality, the stock will fly. at $2 a share eps, king will be $30. the only problem with king right now is a lack of game introductions for the coming 6 months, but after that, we should start to see traction build.
setting up for a nice move up in the next couple weeks. the sell off was very contained and doesnt look like it will break the uptrend on apple. lots of activity on this stock today, i think there are plenty of buyers and the sellers will fall off as soon as we push a little higher through some technical resistance
this stock is going to run up and down quite a bit for the next couple days. the traders are running the same algorithm they used early december to know the price down, but there is more demand for the stock so it might not stay down.
i agree 100%. and i also want apple to relaunch their whole mac liine, starting with a repositioned mac mini that is posiitioned not as a mini, but as a true replacement for the PC, then a MacBook under $1000. apple needs to set the goal that every person who owns an iphone MUST convert to Mac computers within 2 years - and they need the product and sales efforts to make that happen. i also want to see a firewall/router for small businesses from apple that is plug and play and very secure and an apple HOME device that is the center of all home connections and content distribution. sure an icar is a great future product, but apple has opportunities to dominate operating systems across people's lives.
