no one cares about Ukraine - live with it
Its one thing to go to Iraq - or Afg - where US has a stake for oil and assisting Israel - that we buy (though O is destroying us as a nation and our defense).
Its not going to happen that we go to war with Russia - over the country adjoining Russia …… King Putin has no choice to do what he is doing as a thug country - they need access to sea -
Extremely attentive to detail and performance
Key thing I like - if focus that he permits no underperformance or "exaggeration" -
Recently - including shareholders meeting Cook did not hold back - major product released - new stuff - this year - has repeated over last month.
Being "SOLID" - no "BSer" - clear to me - you are a fool if you are shorting and not long Apple - great things to come and sooner side ..
If anything, I am buying more on a dip - I trust Cook (and I am a doubting skeptical lawyer by trade!)
I think are correct.
Best reply I have gotten counter is there are not enough games compared to XBOX
Give me a break - Apple "owns" gaming due to the app store /gaming.
I think you will see a proximate launch - before summer -
Apple TV is a key product in the Applestore - MSFT and Sony are in DEEP TROUBLE AND SOON -
Consumer wants variety/quick - they will get with apple tv/gaming -and I think it is sooner than anyone thinks - like you
Whole fall back from $700s to $300s was due to the slease WS / Traders / NY TImes and similar who do not profit on having a single successful American story - They need other stories "Samccum is great , blabla" …. and $$$$$ is not made on WS with a stock trading at fair value ($700-900s where it should be) …
They need people to DUMP the stock - so they can make $$$$$selling short, money on trades selling, money on trades buying et al.
That story ENDS when its OBVIOUS THAT THE STORIES ARE FALSE.
WHEN IS IT OBVIOUS - SALES / INNOVATION PILING UP (WHICH YOU CAN SEE IF YOU READ THE PATENT FILINGS OF APPLE - PRODUCT LIST IS EXPLODING - SUCH AS MOTION FILINGS RELEASED TODAY WHICH POINT TO APPLE GAMING ON APPLE TV .. REMEMBER IT BOUGHT OUT KINETIC MOTION COMPANY THAT APPLE USES FOR X BOX!).
THE TRUTH TRAIN IS STARTING ABOUT NOW - WITH TOMORROW'S MEETING -BS ERS BEWARE YOU WILL GET HURT
You are correct - but I think - particularly with the RAGE of Obamacare EXPLODING - she has to come clear sooner.
Also - tactical error of Obama team - I believe that the anger of the Masses at having to open up their w checkbook for EXPENSIVE OBAMACARE JACK UP IN RATES (not insurance company fault) and expensive cost of care without Health Savings Accounts we had before/high deductibles - is going to cause the GOP to take both houses.
With BOTH HOUSES - then Ms. Lerner could be in deep trouble - special prosecutor et al - Major error in Obama not agreeing to 3 year hold on Obamacare IMMEDIATELY.
If he wanted all his troubles to "disappear" then that is what he would do - don't think his ego will allow - he is just going to dig in and disagree with everyone .. even his team / dems in congress as they go down
This does not happen - Carl had a deal with Tim - a specific conversation that said what Tim's plan is for tomorrow.
Its the same thing as Lerner - if she really wants immunity, she will have to tell prosecutors privately the truth about what she did - and who knew what she was doing - we know who knew don't we???? - give us all a break - she has to be "queen for a day" -she says the truth, prosecutors determine whether its enough to give up prosecuting her
Back to topic - owning $4.5 Billion in Apple, NO WAY that Tim did not agree to do XYZ to support stock before Carl withdrew proxy - at minimum a $25-50 Billionadditional buy bad announced this meeting (1 year's buyback) plus something else - dividend increase, split et al - Keep in mind Google already announced a split (4/1 I think its done .. thereabouts)
Stock will react favorably to the announcements - discounted pre meeting - on the way to 700s this year … 600s short term next few months
yes - with Carl attending there is no way we are going to be hum-drum / quiet w/ nothing happening.
You are Nuts if you don't maintain or improve your Long Position today - major lost opportunity-
No way good does not occur at that meeting (++Buy Back or Split)
I don't expect - but would be very positive - shows management believes pending products will be block buster - and strength of China Mobile.
Ideally stock split and + $50 Billion more in buy backs - need the apple product buyers as shareholders not the fickle hedge funds - who are in then out (right now they are out other than Carl)
Love the tenor of this board - negativity - what is happening attitude.
With a company like Apple - that is exactly where you want to me - when the "unexpected" happens - upgrades Galor.
Investors are ignoring the data coming out of China which shows iphone/ipads are rocking / exploding at China Mobile -
And they are ignoring the good news / pending products -
Heck - that Disney deal looks great today - exclusive deal/exclusive content in Apple ecosystem only -!
Set break $600 within 1 month max
Fox hype - sounded like he was back on - you are correct
Carl speaking in minute LIVE
Stock buy back was authorized, and planned. Not to do it would have been malfeasance.
Cook acting appropriate now - Apple stock was cheap, he purchased before ex dividend date and made even more for shareholders - he is listening to Carl - who - in this case - is an outstanding shareholder and not a raider
You layer out a time line that I have been thinking about - makes a great deal os sense.
The April-May larger iPhone + adding GAMES to Apple TV -----really makes sense from marketing point of view. It is most sensical to have couple launch dates to spread out Apple consumer not having to "choose" between the watch and the larger phone. - if one or other is April/May - and other August/September - then consumer will buy both. .. consumer has time to "recharge" their credit card.
I don't think Apple will take until 2015 to launch a credit card equivalent - predict October-November.
Good layout. This is going to be a blow-out year. I have a ton of July calls (about 60) plus lot of stock - I will be evaluating whether to roll-out some of the options in the next weeks …..
Keep this at the top - you will be miserable if you don't buy up down here - buy when stupidity reigns - product launches are pending and H U G E -
don't be sad just because I pointed out you are clueless - and have ZERO resume/education/background to support any value to your comments - irrelevant Joe - the point this the point - get it ?????
This is the product / buying time for the chinese - love it - perfect timing
cnbc will run the story when its over -
I review closely the patent filings and the obvious stuff in your face.
Apple Store on line just added "APPLE TV" as a primary category at top with the iPhone, iPads, computers - this is a major major change.
Apple has purchased technology company the owns kinetic motion for msft - This is a mega mega area - obviously- developers love apple - I predict short term launch - HUGE NEW REVENUE SOURCE- APPLE WILL BE COMPETITIVE WITH X BOX - GET IT -
BEST OF ALL APPLE PRODUCTS MESH TOGETHER WITH GAMING - WITH PHONES/PADS E TAL - MSFT IS ALONE WITH THE XBOX - GAMING ONLY.
And now - quick activation of the us factory to make the glass (new - not gorilla) for watches - it is needed for watches and Apple wants to start production in Feb-
I see a launch by Summer of I Watch - perfect timing - sports - new product diff't than computers - its health, and sports/outside
and China will be kicking in - Chinese new year sales shortly
you have been a loser for years you imbecile.
all of us know how dumb you have really been on a long term basis - lay out your credentials please for all of us to mock
exactly - you dont' want 80% institutional now - we want the 20 to come in on Monday after hours
