    Why Message Board Bashers Bash Stocks

    Just a few facts you've over-looked. 99.9999 percent of investors NEVER and I mean NEVER read a message board of any kind. Anyone who is investing purely on message board information should not be investing and deserves to lose their money, sorry. Basher's are past loser's who lost their money on a long or short position in a given stock and are just plain bitter and jealous of those who are still in the game making money.

    Stating the obvious doesn't do anything to build credibility. Estimated demand is from 75 to 100 Million phones.
    The problem is, Apple has to have those made and delivered to 30 to 50 countries and seven continents: Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Australia, and Antarctica. If you liked Apple at $650-$700 split adjusted why didn't you like it ( Buy It ) @ $400?

    Sentiment: Buy

  • We all know that. There's just millions of investors on all levels looking for good companies to invest in. I never buy the open on an IPO. With a 5 Billion cap. It would seem to take it out of acquisition range? I still have my life savings in Apple from last June. Buying this on margin. If it pops to $28-$32 I'm not sure if I can handle the valuation? Am I the only value investor left on the planet?

  • Car tech company Mobileye increases IPO range; deal size increased 22% to $611 million

    Mobileye, an Israeli provider of camera-based technology to avoid automobile collisions, raised the proposed deal size for its upcoming IPO on Tuesday. The Jerusalem, Israel-based company now plans to raise $611 million by offering 27.8 million shares (70% insider) at a price range of $21 to $23. The company had previously filed to offer 27.8 million shares at a range of $17 to $19. At the midpoint of the revised range, it will raise 22% greater proceeds than previously anticipated; its proposed fully diluted market cap increased 23% to $5.2 billion.

    Mobileye, which was founded in 1999 and booked $105 million in sales for the 12 months ended March 31, 2014, plans to list on the NYSE under the symbol MBLY. Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Barclays and Citi are the joint bookrunners on the deal. It is expected to price later this week.

    I've heard " Paid Bashers " before, I just don't understand how they get paid. Who would pay them and what would be the motive? Being 99.9999 percent of Apple investors never read a message board of any kind? You do realize only 10 or 20 people post on this board, while there's 50,000 to 75,000 shareholders, right?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I'm no fan of Cramer's. In fact, I always bet against his calls. When HLF hit the 70-80 range it had short written all over it and I've only shorted a dozen stocks in 15 years.

  • Samsung announced earnings on Monday night, and they were worse than anyone expected — by a wide margin.
    Operating income was 7.2 trillion won ($7.1 billion), a 24% drop on a year-over-year basis. Analysts were expecting 8 trillion won.

    Sales were down to 52 trillion won, a 10% year-over-year drop.

    To put this in context, last year, when Apple's stock was battered and people were murmuring that it was doomed, it had never posted negative sales growth.

    So what's happening to Samsung?

    Basically, at the high end, it's struggling to take share from Apple, and that market is quickly saturating.

    At the low and mid-end, it's struggling to compete with Chinese phone makers who sell phones that are cheaper than Samsung but otherwise are pretty much the exact same thing.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • life savings into Apple. I added over the last 15 months or so when I took out a second mortgage on my home and put it into a margin account. It seemed the more Sheep talked, the more Apple I bought!!!! So now Sheep has watched Apple longs rake in over $200 Billion in profits over the last 15-16 months and he still is posting useless drivel.....LMFAO! That's what happens when your self respect, dignity, and pride get flushed down the toilet with a bad Apple trade, which is what happened to Sheep in case you didn't know.

    BTW: Sheep lose his life savings on a bad Apple trade and was on here saying he was going to " Kill Himself " because of it! We've long lived regretting talking him out of it....Not really, he's harmless.

    Name a worse scam than NEWL:

    The two listed above ended costing fund managers, institutional investors and retail investors over 100 Billion dollars plus so it was hands down the biggest scam other then Bernie Madoff. BM was over 50 Billion USD. The problem with NEWL is it's still costing investors everyday it trades.
