How long has he held his IBM position in which he just added to. Buffett now owns more than 81 MILLION shares of IBM. As far as who at Berkshire bought Apple. Based on the size of the investment I would say Buffett was definitely involved. Either way Buffett saw value in Apple and acted on it which is a positive for Apple longs.
"Berkshire held 9.81 million Apple shares worth $1.07 billion as of March 31, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission detailing the company's U.S.-listed stock holdings.
It is not clear who made the investment, Buffett or one of his portfolio managers, Todd Combs and Ted Weschler, who each invest about $9 billion. Buffett has said he typically makes Berkshire's multibillion-dollar investments, while Combs and Weschler make smaller wagers."
Warren Buffett is a buy and hold investor. He usually holds investments for a VERY long time.
“We select such investments on a long-term basis, weighing the same factors as would be involved in the purchase of 100% of an operating business:
(1) favorable long-term economic characteristics;
(2) competent and honest management;
(3) purchase price attractive when measured against the yardstick of value to a private owner; and
(4) an industry with which we are familiar and whose long-term business characteristics we feel competent to judge.”
“If you aren’t willing to own a stock for ten years, don’t even think about owning it for ten minutes”
“When we own portions of outstanding businesses with outstanding managements, our favorite holding period is forever.”
phaaaarrrrrrrrmaheeerrro, one of the biggest morons posting on Yahoo. How many aliases do you have now idiot ?
You have been warned for several months now about the fate of Linn and you chose to ignore the facts and continue to make foolish predictions about the company. Take off those rose colored glasses and get your .12 or .13 cents while you can. A lot of us have lost a considerable amount of savings here but no benefit crying over spilt milk. Good luck with your future investments and time to close the book with this nightmare.
Neither but I am capable of recognizing a fool who is in deep poo. I suggest you stop skipping school and concentrate on your English and writing skills. It's never too late and your day trading doesn't seem to be working out.
Wow you and all of your alias shorts are getting absolutely SMOKED! I love it and hope it continues until you crawl back under your rock.
It looks like the floor has been established! I don't see a breach of this unless the market decides to take a dump but that scenario will take everything down not just FIT. If your long turn off your phone or computer and enjoy the weekend because the damage is done and there is nothing to do now but wait for rationale investors to enter the arena. Happy Mothers Day!
Apple is NOT at the 2 year low. The 2 year low, split adjusted was $ 80.56 on May 9th 2014. I agree though that $92 is support but if the shorts can breach $92 it could fall to around $88 or so. If it falls to the 2 year low back up the truck because it will be EXTREMELY oversold. How much cash do they have again?
If you are looking for fitness activity tracking the Blaze rates far better than the Watch. The Blaze is also a lot cheaper as has been mentioned before buy as far as functionality if you are a gym rat or someone who only cares about keeping track of your health you will be better served with a Fitbit product not to mention the battery life which is more than twice that of the apple Watch.
Here are some excerpts from a recent comparison between the two.
Fitness tracking is unsurprisingly the Blaze's big play here, and its list of features is a kind of refinement of the company's products to date. It'll track steps, sleep, calories, floors climbed, active time and there's an optical heart rate sensor to deliver resting HR and active time.
In terms of sensors, theres a 3-axis accelerometer, gyro sensor and an altimeter to track elevation. There's no on board GPS, so you'll have to rely on your phone's GPS to track runs and hikes via a feature called ConnectedGPS (a renamed version of the old MobileRun). You do get sleep tracking though and it's done automatically using the accelerometer to detect movement.
The Blaze can also track a whole host of exercises and uses the recently introduced SmartTrack feature to automatically recognise what activities you're doing. This means you'll always get credit for exercise, whether it's that morning walk to the office or gym workout.
Clearly, the Fitbit ecosystem is better geared towards fitness tracking. While Apple's app is decent, the lack of comparison, insights into health trends, resting heart rate data and proper workout recording means it still can't hold a candle to the Fitbit, even if there's little difference in the hardware.
Fitbit Blaze v Apple Watch: Initial verdict
The gulf in price difference alone, even with Apple's entry model indicates that these are two wearables playing in two very different playgrounds.
Fitbit's new design is a welcome change, and for activity tracking fans its focus on fitness is a winner.
I agree this is very irrational trading of this stock. The CEO, Park said that future guidance would be weakened by expenses associated with new product roll out later this Fall. This past quarters earnings were very good. This company has over $3 bucks per share in cash and are making money every quarter. I would not allow uninformed investors or shorts to push me out of this stock. I really didn't expect it to fall hard again today and just bought more at $13. It's tough to hold on days like this but knowing there is nothing wrong with the company does make it a bit easier. Eventually this will pop up on screens as way over sold and the buying will begin. It really should be there now.
Maybe you should dilute that rot gut you're drinking.
