  • Enough of the BuyBacks! Drop the share count to 5 billion then start using money in an aggressive manor! Your growth is flat and going negative! Time to put money to work and buy new revenue streams with Growth! Enough of this Flounder action! You are getting into Cars? Buy Harman International as Cramer Says! It is a Great Idea that will produce positive results!

    Time for a Change at the Top! Apple needs to get into social and Mobile....Time to Buy Twitter if only to Get Jack Dorsey! Time for the Top face of Apple to change! Jack Dorsey would bring to Apple the Cool Innovative Leader Apple has been missing since Jobs left us. Cook Has done a good job
    in China but the changes and vision needed going forward are not within Cook!

    A Company with all time Revenue and free cash flow in 2015 and the stock down 28 % from the highs is a signal of serious trouble! Bigger screens...smaller screens ...different colors are not the answer! Borrowing Cash to pay the Divy and buy back shares has done nothing to support your failing stock price!

    Enough of The Dreaming from the Board of Directors! Remain blind with hands in your pockets as The World Passes You By! How Long will You Continue to Run This company with Blinders on! Shareholders deserve better Clarity cause of right now the Excuses are running out! An Action is Required! Step outside Your Normal Boring Apple Rhetoric!

    The Time to be Bold is Now!!!!! Dare To Be Bold!

    To bad all that cash is overseas and would cost them a 40% tax hit for them to actually Buy something of worth. Perhaps with a New President in 2017 The tax code might get changed so not only Apple but other US companies with Billions in the same position can bring home the Bucks and make a difference here!

    Unfffffffffff real. We are red? Why?

    1: Because people are buying Netflix before earnings not Apple! 2: If Apple did not sell more then 75 million phones down will go Apple! 3: Suppliers already cutting this Current quarter Shipments so if Apple Guides Lower for current Quarter at Earnings Down she Goes! Eventually YOY Growth in IPhone sale will go flat and Negative.

    No One Cares about Yesterday! No One Cares about How Big They are! No one cares How Much cash They Have and most of it overseas and can't even bring it home without paying 40% tax!

    It Is all about Growth and The Big ship is slowing Down! It is actually one of the Scariest Times for Apple investors.

    True No one will need a cell Phone ...we will go back to corded hard lines....No cars either back to bikes.....No Houses back to caves!

    Why can't Apple products be produced in the USA?

    There is a very good reason The USA Mostly produces Stupid people and The USA Likes It this way! There are very few Americans leaning technical trade and simply do not have the skills to build such complex units. Might as well say what you say and apply to every company! They all are producing in low cost countries. So Take all your cloths off cause they are made in China! Dump whatever computer or cell phone you are using cause they are made in China.....Good luck finding products Being made 100% in The USA....very few are!

    Yes at stores but The online numbers are surging. Why bother leaving house to fight for parking and smelly people bumping you at the mall when you can sit naked at computer with coffee and have stress free shopping?

    because apple controls direction of the stock at all times. they only want to buy back stock at cheap prices which is good for shareholders. still shareholders upset with lack of upward stock price as they should be. It is all a game and much is controlled by Apple and the group of wall street boys they hire to control stock price

    Isis will be acquired soon

    That is easier said then done. There are to many drugs with to many large partners for this company to be bought out. Many different companies have given millions in milestone payments to ISIS for rights to the drugs they are developing. It is extremely hard to put a value on a possible 38 drug pipeline with many partners. There is so much involved it would be an extremely difficult process if to happen

    I am sure PC companies who are failing Think Mac Numbers are Meaningful and wish they had the profit Mac's make alone. It is this thinking that Apple has no meaningful numbers but IPhone is silly.... iPhone is a revolutionary product that only comes about once in a blue moon. It is the messed up analysts thinking they know more then The CEO of the most profitable company that is the problem.

    They are able to bump secured notes from 400 mill to 1 billion with no problem...then they come out and tell you the estimate for earnings is to low and bump the range up past earnings estimates for the quarter. Simple a Joke folks this company is not Macy's!!! They are increasing numbers and idiots downgrade stock but lift price Joke......No Respect for LB When they tell You They are beating earnings in a big way.

    The Billions in cash it has! Apple just keeps buying back shares on the cheaps. How much free cash will it generate this Quarter? It is more then just iPhones .... and if by chance The iPhone number is not greater then 74.5 million and only 70 million please tell me who is selling 70 million high end phones and is as profitable as Apple?

    Wake up....Profits and free cash flow has never been better under Cook. If You Think Jobs personality would work wonders in China You are Nuts! It is because of Cooks humble and low key personality That Apple creates More free cash flow then any other company! You should stay in School or go take some more classes
