How can Peabody (BTU) have 2 Billion higher Mkt. Cap than Cliff's with almost half the equity, over just 3 Billion in equity at BTU?
Mgmt. is no good at Cliffs, they don't know what they are doing.
Well, please tell me how DELL is a growth stock, how MSFT is a growth stock or how INTC is a growth stock. I'm all for a pithy reply, but yours is worthless.
AAPL is a good price right where it is. As long as we keep this 400-460 range, I'm happy.
Wonder if we will get there?
The BOD did what they thought would help boost the stock price, but they are fighting a losing battle against all the negativity. The executives need to come out and defend the stock, but they are to happy in their "ask kissing" bubble to come out in public and do that.
28 billion added to the 194 billion in assets is not so bad for the year. That's pretty low price to book value. I just can't get behind some of the low price target numbers unless there is a spin-off...which seems unlikely while they are trying to get to iPhone unveiling in this fall. The problem with this stock is that all the growth players have moved on to better opportunities. Look at NFLX and GOOG. There is too much ill will toward AAPL these days, and no one can really tell you exactly why.
Well, how is it that they have no innovation. They are gaining patents. They are winning battles against rivals, and they have products that sell. iTunes is working, iRadio will be deployed, the App store is selling, enterprise sales are rising, retail stores are expanding. Malware is highly focused on Android. iPads are gaining use in the classroom. China iPhone sales are rising. I just don't see this company going away this year or next. Maybe after a few more bad ER's and high debt ratios....otherwise you are just spreading fear.
In addition, they announce increase divy and buyback, yet Cramer says stock is going down to $380? It was at $385 without the ER and announcement. I think it's premature to be calling for a new 52 week low just now.
he U.S. Department of Defense said on Friday that it plans to allow Apple's iOS devices onto the Pentagon's secure network early next week, opening the door for lucrative military contracts currently dominated by BlackBerry.
