Google stinks as company and investment - and the slime running it (Schmidt - specifically - on the Board of Apple and he "permits" Google to launch copycat type phone)
Yep - Goog should have been nice with Apple- they were thieves .. now Apple is pulling their heart out - no more search on the most popular high-end phones where people spend $$$$$$$ and that is the advertsing.
Goog/Schmidt are STUPID and SHORT SIGHTED DUMMAS
Apple is destroying them.
Apple pulled search from Goog - gave to Bing/msft
This year - Apple contract is up - Apple pulls iphone/mac search on computers/phones/pads - gives it to bing
Good riddance Goog- they are going down .. iPhone is the stake in their thieving unethical heart
Apple insider stories last night from analysis of HORRIBLE Samsung Earnings show Apple is putting Samsung virtually out of business in a couple of quarters
I predict Samsung will terminate its phones within 1 year -m SAMSUNG CANNOT AFFORD CHASING APPLE - APPLE NOW MAKING BILLIONS - SAMSUNG IS ONLY MAKING MILLIONS - THEY ARE TANKING ON PHONES
SAMSUNG - WILL CHANGE BACK TO THE COMPONENTS - THEY CANNOT AFFORD THIS WITH FURTHER DECLINES.
MAKING MILLIONS - THEN THEY STILL HAVE TO PAY APPLE A BILLION - THEY ARE LOSING MONEY BIG TIME .... HERE ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS
NET RESULT - AS CNBC AND PRESS STARTS GOING OVER THESE ARTICLES - APPLE WILL SHOOT UP TO $135-140 I PREDICT WITHIN THE NEXT 1-2 WEEKS:
Apple, Samsung now tied for the title of world's largest smartphone maker
FeatureSamsung's mobile profits plunge 64.2% after Apple's iPhone 6 devastates premium Galaxy sales
Samsung's mobile profits plunge 64.2% after Apple's iPhone 6 devastates premium Galaxy sales
$7.2 billion of Samsung's profits have vanished over just the last six months
Apple's overall operating profits for the quarter were $24.2 billion, up 36.9 percent over the year ago quarter. That means Samsung Mobile is now earning less than 7.5 percent of Apple's profits while still shipping more phone units.
Funds, investors not in, ANGRY - funds need to up their percentage allocation. Writing on the wall - major loss missing this next up to reality which should be $150 end of March (when I Watch launch date will be announced)
dumma - its been a buy for about 7 years - that's why i purchased 37K+ shares (and deep in money options) - you are you that goof ball character in disney that thinks people think he is intellectual?
Congratulations - don't know your expiry date - if you have time a roll-out is wonderful
Just think how Apple should do into the future as reality kicks in - the incredible growth of current and next iPhones around the world, the business explosion in usage with Apps like IBM is introducing - Apple pay, apple watch on and on. Multiple obscene here. way way too low! Congratulations to you - maybe roll some of them ... out
Naysayer checker - report back to me later today here - let's see who nailed this one - hopefully I have been listened to you have had faith in Apple and USA ingenuity that is possible with hard work
Should definitely break this number this week. Would not bet against today - way way undervalued.
My 7 years plus of screaming buy APPLE, rolling over options et al just came in - logic /facts prevail - the Apple rocketship of belief in this story and belief in Steve Jobs, Tim Cook and incredible talent of engineers and designers never previously assembled has taken off - the contrary naysayers who said buy hp samsung et al .. have expired into oblivion
I have 37,000+ shares in Apple (stock and deep in money options) - around 80% invested in Apple.
Don't sell - buy NOW - IMMEDIATELY.
Apple should have been $125 pre earnings - the beat should have brought us up to $140.
That is short term - thie stock should have at least a 20-22 PE ... going to $140 is making up only for the stupidity of the last 6 months or so as stock has not done much and undervalued given cash and growith and visibility way way out
Apple sells phones that make businesses efficient. $800 phone SAVES ME A FORTUNE -
my and wife's businesses don't need that assistant to calendar, schedule, answer calls - in other words $800 cost for phone is CHEAPER than $20K for a part time employee (many businesses $50K with comp).
I just met with a high level VP of a major magazine firm - there is no receptionist on the mega floor. All in that type position were fired -there is a phone at the lobby entrance to call person meeting with . Asked the VP - said corporate fired all in that position to cut cost. ... all employees must directly produce revenue/product (writers, advertisement, marketing - not entry level).
Apple saves small business and BIG business big BUCKS - MORE IMPT. IN CRUMMY ECONOMY WITH OBAMA CARE - WHICH DICTATES FIRE EMPLOYEES TO MAKE UP HIGHER COST PER EMPLOYEE - ITS MATH STUPID
If Apple does not break-out to $125 before close Monday - then expect a huge move up after hours and Tuesday.
Look at Appleinsider - they just posted numbers - over 50% of the Activations are iPhone 6's - most people buying (around 60%) are saying next phone is the 6 that they are purchasing. Destroying the competition.
That - along with the quick shipping now (UPS coming today with my top of the line 6 that shipped 1 day for ATT business from Texas) - shows me that there are not lost sales / delayed sales for inventory issues.
That coupled with poor sales of teen clothing - shows to me that kids/adults/ are both putting their $$$$s into iPhone 6 - not clothing.
Pay attention - real price run-up tomorrow .. Then again monday ... looking at $125 + by closing monday
This is the ultimate regret.
Stock is PE will be below 15 shortly as earnings grow .. take out the cash multiple a joke.
And apple pay, huge upgrade cycle with bigger phone - and apple pay again (get it- huge upgrade cycle with Apple pay and watch), and Watch -
Monday afternoon misery misery - buy it now or feel horrible Monday
Just counted my options and shares - 37K shares (shares and deep deep in money options).
I am not selling 1 share or option.
Have held the shares/options (keep rolling over) for about 7 years now.
This is the "Sweet Spot". iPhone - best / large phone everyone including Trump screaming for, Apple Pay (pushes purchasing forward - I bought replacement for 5 C yesterday for this, my wife bought hers for the large phone as designer), and watch. China news (2 days ago) - sales are way over expectations - samsung getting thashed. ATT has phones letting us pay about $42 to buy the phone monthly - then getting brand new 7 for same deal in 12 months!!! this all is pushing sales forward.
If you don't increase your allocation to Apple immediately you are NUTS. My allocation is about 70% for $3M in Apple (balance - Disney - heavy due to Pixar 2 movies Marvel 3+ and SW -all this year - and opening of Shanghai Dis in Dec; SBUX; FB; DOW).
If you own a great deal like me - do not sell. If you don't own a large percentage (10%++++) increase. Other than Apple and Disney - I cap allocation at 10% per company - here though this is a once and a lifetime opportunity - your price will be much more expensive in 2 trading days when sales announced/earnings
I just got 2 new phones @ ATT - $42 per month each phone (top of the line 6). "20 Month Plan" - I can replace the phone in 12 months for the new one (7) .. just keep paying the $42. Its worth it for me - they give a monthly fee $20 discount!
I use my phone to be efficient, cut staff - i need to be cutting edge - chump change.
ATT rep said this new ATT plan is EXTREMELY POPULAR. .... everyone assuming slower replacement cycle is just stupid - if anything quicker - these plans encourage 1 year flip!!!
Too Bad that Obama care jacked up my insurance 30% this year alone - $4000 additional - do the math gas does not cut it --
Disaster year for economy thanks Obama
you are a dumma - just a dumma deluxe - no thought no reason .. just a big dumma......
