"Cheating" is cheating. The laws weren't made with this evasiveness. I now think of both companies as scoundrels and I hope the government thwarts the merger and sanctions them while they're trying to get this done before the bell. Disgusting behavior by Poo-fizer and Alle-greed!
c'mon, pal, this is all a scam to line the pockets of the already rich insiders. If you believe anything else then you're a fool. Don't buy the bull here - Irish eyes are smiling when the rich at Allergan and then Pfizer get richer. I hope the regulators block this merger - it's bad for almost everyone!
Where are the politicians and regulators on this? If this is accepted, how many more companies will flee in the same way to escape paying USA taxes? Very disgusting. Both companies should be ashamed of themselves. It's cheating. Here's the chance for a visionary regulator or politician to make a name for himself or herself. Don't allow tis merger t happen!
Really bad idea.
Not impressed with the new I-Phone, same as the old I-Phone. Totally needs improvement.
Apple needs to stick to its basics before expanding into other products, and improve them.
Not buying it. Wall Street has no business partying under such circumstances. Just another excuse to extend the greed.
Forget Apple, it's on the decline manipulation notwithstanding. I don't buy the hype or the new I-Phone which was a lazy man's previous I-Phone. Can't Apple do better than that??? Guess not! Very disappointing.
What a crock! How much was he paid to say that? Ridiculous! "Watch" this thing disappear, horrible idea. Don't believe anything Apple or Best Buy says in this regard. Puhleeease!
This new initiative would help WBA and be appropriate at this time. Cheap electronics, candies, and other junk are a no-go, and then they charge higher prices to boot. No way, keep the foreign junk out. Will not buy it. Telling others the same. Hoping readers of this do the same. Let's send a message to WBA.
Yes, I have seen that, but it is OBVIOUS that Walgreens raises its prices significantly, then drops them down to "sale" level while still artificially inflating them. That's why I don't shop there. If they do this practice with Rite Aid, I won't shop there either. They must think their consumers are morons, that we don't notice this. On that basis alone I think WBA will flail and ultimately fail if they pursue this same poor strategy. Manufacturers are no better, but I'm wise to that game as well. Stock up on the (real) sales and then don't buy at the inflated prices. Store brands and generics are good, too (same difference, made by the same company but cost less).
What a scam. So manipulated, unregulated, unfair with payola imo. Success looks like taking on Wall Street, throwing the bums in jail, and making America great and trustworthy once again.
Apple seems incredibly manipulated. They should definitely NOT produce anything wearable or watchable. Stick to the one thing they know how to do. Cook is no chef!
Sick and tired of Apple's games in having brokerages buy or over-rate when commanded to make things look better than they really are, and of course that ridiculous media "spin machine" ad nauseum. Apple is stuck in this range because there is no significant growth on the horizon. I certainly do NOT believe their I-phon(y) numbers from China which is massively struggling. Some trickery going on here with the timing, numbers being reported or both. They must think we're dummies to believe this. Best to move on from Apple and invest in real growth companies while Apple is still "figuring it out" beyond what they already have. Anything wearable is a joke. Growth is waning. Spin machine is irrelevant. Cook is no chef.
And you believe that??? You must be kidding! Counting and reporting are two different things. Don't be so sure that what's being counted is what's being reported. Just sayin'...
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Ridiculous how Wall Street manipulates stocks and uses a pump and dump scheme. Where's the accountability? That's why the crock market is a joke that provides big LAUGHS from time to time. How can you taske it seriously? The real unemployment rate is over 20% and getting worse. Yellen has no guts and is puppeted by big business. Let's put even more lipstick on the pig (because it's not a bull).
There's a lot of questions to be answered as to how the reporting is done (including tax reporting) and what is truly counted as sales and profits. I'm dubious, and think complicity could be involved among those reporting the "earnings." Beware, including how many trials of the products become actual conversions/users. I hope the regulators look into all this for transparency, fairness, and accuracy imo.
No longer a strong leader, should stick to what it knows best (the basics). Got too fancy for itself, paid the price (taking sharholders down with it), needs to reevaluate its business model. Wouldn't touch this until they figure it out. Also has a big fake spin machine with its media - totally see right through it and not buying that, either!
My posts were about Apple being overvalued when others think it's undervalued. Fair enough,right? But maybe yahoo is in bed with Apple and doesn't like this kind of post. Yahoo has done this multiple times. I just sent in my complaint to the SEC - let them look into it. If you or others are having the same "problem" with yahoo finance's message board, I strongly suggest you also contact the SEC. If yahoo only wants selected positive posts on its boards, it should rename the message board to something like the "Make Nice" board. The way it is constructed as of now is deceptive to investors by excluding selected posts. The SEC has now been informed about this and hopefully will have yahoo be accountable for its actions. If yahoo cannot or will not post selected messages, it should at least inform the poster and other readers of the board, and explain why. Other than that, yes, I do believe this is a conspiracy and done on purpose by yahoo. This has happened too frequently, especially with Apple. Let the fed sort it out. My complaint stands! I would NOT invest in yahoo based on what it has done and is doing in this regard. That's my opinion, whether yahoo likes it or not.
This is America - let the feds decide if Yahoo is legitimate. Let's see if they have the guts to post this - I'm copying it and sending it along to the feds for investigation. Yahoo is a DISGRACE to try to impede freedom of speech and expression! What country is Yahoo from? Very disgusting!
Read about this online - another scam to manipulate the investors. Interest rates should have/would have been raised already without this manipulation! I will vote for any candidate who can rid wall street of these lies and be a straight shooter. Any ideas which candidate could do that?
watch for earnings manipulation, especially on the tax side. This is not an upstanding, clarity company. I can almost guarantee that the numbers they state are not the real numbers and are nowhere really close. I just hope the regulators watch them closely and are not in on it. Let's nail these suckers if they deserve it - would make a great headline.
Apple is "Cooked." Lacking innovation and identity. Competition outdueling it. Stick to basics - nothing wearable, watchable, and shouldn't be so full of itself. Apple is NOT all that! The Emperor has clothes and, unfortunately, a very overpriced watch.
