With all the companies that are on exchanges APPLE does not look like the place to place short bets, because a Company with $160 BILLION IN CASH AND ANOTHER $90 BILLION COMING ON BOARD IN THE NEXT TWO YEARS CAN BECOME ANYTHING THAT IT WANTS TO BE
It looks to me that AAPLE will become a huge seller of THINGS AND SERVICES AND NOT JUST A HARDWARE COMPANY.
Perhaps American Express is in its future, perhaps a SOCIAL NETWORK VERY DIFFERENT then the open source ones that now exist. Perhaps a new version of its I TUNES STORE SELLING FASHION GOODS
perhaps THE LONG AWAITED APPLE TV WITH STREAMING CONTENT WHO CAN GUESS?
SO ENJOY THIS RIDE FOR THE NEXT 12 MONTHS AND WAIT TO SEE THE ADDITIONAL DIRECTION THAT THE COMPANY TAKES , remembering that the day to day price movements do not matter, and the idiots on this board trying to sound like they know what will happen each hour are a complete waste of ink and time
Where is ABIGALE DOOLITTLE she of the GREAT prediction that AAPL WAS AT $75 but will soon see $40
Now she call AAPL a sure drop to $60 Looks to me that she is moving in with STINKY AND MAKING THAT BASEMENT OF THE TACO BELL a new office to give her predictions and allow STINKY to continue his STALKING
ITS A PAIR MADE IN HEAVEN
But because Apple excluded a sapphire screen — which is incredibly expensive to manufacture — from the iPhone 6, the analysts now expect full-year earnings of $7.67 a share in the 2015 fiscal year rather than the $7.57 expected previously. They see the stock reaching $115 within 12 months, compared with the $107 they had forecast before the launch even. They also reiterated the buy rating.
With The new Apple pay system and 800 million Apple iTunes customer credit cards
on file Apple opens up the potential for a social media app that will be an
exclusive type social communication form
There is a social media company out there that has not been successful, it
limits the contacts to 125 people
But just like golf that has such a good but exclusive audience this could be a
great avenue for Apple to sell high-end exclusive advertising
With all major credit card companies and huge amount of retail outlets on line
for the new pay system this becomes a natural
Must be ADVERTISING HELL TWITTER AND FACEBOOK are getting millions of users and they make money selling ADS, so APPLE has 800 MILLION iTUNES CREDIT CARD USERS thats the ad ticket and since we now know hWHERE THEY SHOP AND WHAT THEY BUY well that will be a TARGETED AD
I understand the great additional security that the new APPLE payment system has but how does APPLE make revenue and profits if all goes thru existing card companies. The press release says that APPLE will not data mine the info and that APPLE gets no fees can that statement be correct?
Perhaps with huge numbers of transactions there is a way to monitize these? WITH ADVERTISING????
2015 earnings $42 Billion 2015 share buyback 60 million shares, 2015 DIV PER SHARE $2.20
2015 YE SHARE COUNT 5,39 billion 2015 epe $7.70/share
2015 share price $7.70 x16 equals $123
In America what a joke. You eat out and the bill comes, you take out a credit card and GIVE IT TO THE WAITER WHO THEN TAKES IT AWAY AND YOU DO NOT SEE IT FOR WHAT??? 5 minutes
He then comes back with slip that you sigh You have no idea what he did with your card and he has little idea who you really are, HELL AT LEAST IN EUROPE THE CARD NEVER LEAVES YOU A MACHINE IS BROUGHT TO YOUR TABLE AND THE CARD GOES IN AND YOU MUST PUT A PIN CODE FOR THE CHARGE TO GO THRU
AAPL MOBILE PAYMENTS WILL BE HUGE WITH BOTH A PIN CONTROL AND A FINGER PRINT BIOMETRIC
Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko has reached agreement with Russia's Vladimir Putin on Wednesday on a "permanent ceasefire" in eastern Ukraine's Donbass region, Poroshenko's press office said in a statement.
What a joke. Yesterday must've been 50 reports how Apple iCloud was hacked and
these nude pictures of movie stars were extracted and published
Many reports were trying to say how this put apples pay program of credit card
payments in jeopardy
After two days of these articles it finally came out that the I Cloud was never
hacked but the individual stars own email accounts were hacked
Even the hacker said it took three months of concentrated work and they went
after the individual Stars accounts not Apples
CNBC is just a Shill operation as they led the march on these reports and the
day will come when this gets exposed
