Not that it matters.
Icahn = profit at any cost
He is not looking out for small investors, but he is using his influence and financial power to manipulate markets and profit massively even it means hurting small guy.
Stock keeps dropping every day to absurd levels
Shorts keep piling on
Canadian Govt. watching horror show from the side lines.
Lazaridis is helpless
PM and Company stays mum (other than silly Porsche phone)
JC still enjoying his honeymoon
How did it all come to such a low point in less than 4 months?
Is this really what PM and rest of the Canada is proud of?
He admitted that he hedges his positions. So what do you do when market keeps going up and your hedges are under water?
You come on TV and blabber that market is too high and sharp drop can occur and create panic
Then you quitely cover your hedges and minimize loss. Whether this is legal or not I have no idea, but it is unethical IMO
However ethics don't matter at #$%$ street.
Except for earnings releases?
Why APPL has become so secretive in the last few months?
AAPL management and BOD has already made their billions and AAPL is eager to buy back cheap shares, so in the short run, they have no desire to increase their pps.
It almost feels like AAPL is letting its stock price languish on purpose by not issuing any PRs and letting hedge funds manipulate it in flat line
ONE PR in 3 weeks for 472 billion dollar company!
Even Pandora, 5 billion dollar company and NFLX 20 billion dollar company had many times more PR in the same time than this mysterious company.
Jeez. Like this is a total surprise.
No PR from AAPL over the entire weekend. How can a 500 billion company go without PR for so many days?
I would have to agree with you on bigger phone. That is one and ONLY one reason I am still an Android phone user. I think Apple has relinquished probably 50 million smartphone market to Samsung because of lack of big screen phone.
Having said that, I think they did brilliant job with IOS7 (which I was apprehensive about initially) 5S and new ipad line ups.
Apple investors are showing their disappointment for AAPL management. There are ZERO net new investors in Apple. Not for not bringing great products and great execution, but for
1. letting AAPL stock become vehicle for market manipulators by spreading false rumors make massive money at the expenses of shareholders.
2. letting useless and misleading market surveys by IDC, Gartner influence the minds of new Apple investors
They have let the Apple investors down in the last year or so. When the world stock market has exploded, Apple stock languishes in flatline in spite of greatly improving prospects.
Great fundamentals and great outlook DOES NOT always mean GREAT stock price.
What if world stock market takes tumble Mr. Cook & Co.? AAPL will fall further behind, causing more agony to its shareholders.
Why are you not in control? You have stop this media/rumor mill machine and show market you are in control. Start issuing more PRs, keep market well informed about good or bad data points so that they can make informed decisions.
The current Marketing and Sales is pathetic at Blackberry to say the least. A major issue why Z10 ended up in a disaster.
Z30 one of best smartphones in the market now. Check the reviews on Amazon, Verizon.
Where is advertising for the new phone? They should be running full page ads in major news papers (like WSJ, NYT).
Mr. Chen take a note. Z30 might end up in disaster like Z10 in inspite of being one of the best smart phone.
Ever wonder about that?
He is the 'other' major shareholder besides Watsa who has lost his a##.
I highly doubt he agrees with everything that has been going on. I also doubt that he is just taking it on the chin and has no choice.
Another mysterious aspect of this conundrum.
