Re: Who are you? What have you done with Buffett

It is like Buffett’s analogy about everyone standing on tiptoes to see the passing parade. Nobody actually sees any better.

Sure, but the first row has no reason to stand on tiptoes, so the second row should see better at least [more]

Re: Market timers hall of fame

Not sure I consider myself really smart when it comes to investing. I cashed out all my stocks two years ago, except for my 401k and company stock, and put it in a second house. I didn't consider stocks super expensive at the time, but felt it [more]

Re: Phillip Fisher

Only an extreme optimist will have Apple pass the expanding sales and market criteria. That stage has passed.

I agree with platykurtic, a 2 in 1 device would be a very attractive proposition. A large iPad Pro that can act like a laptop with a wireless keyboard and mouse. Files in iCloud so I can seamlessly transition from working on my iMac at home from [more]

Not a very popular board. Or stock maybe.
Good results though, did well the past few years.

Spam bots

Am I the only one who is annoyed by the spam bots? All the two-line blurbs by posters with usernames that are English first and last names, no capitals. Like the one before this post. I started to block them all, but I'm surprised it hasn't [more]

Re: AAPL


Apple is trading above $118 again. AAPL is a good buy right now for the long term.


Long term? Said by someone who posts about every dollar the stock moves. Who are you trying to kid?

Re: Do I buy another iMac?

I understand, but the question is did they KNOW you have a retina iMac? I did not, hence the reason I posted that.

No, they knew I didn't have one, because I asked if I buy one, would I be able to connect my laptop... and the [more]

Re: Do I buy another iMac?

"Agree, it's very nice. But to be honest, $400 buys you quite a nice 27" 5K Retina monitor too nowadays. I know this because I was a bit dismayed to find out I couldn't use the iMac as a monitor for my work laptop. (The Apple [more]

Re: Warren's stance on taxes (OT)

Re: Do I buy another iMac?

I'd consider the new iMac for the 5K Retina display, all other things being equal or a bit better than the 2011 model. If I remember correctly, the 2011 iMacs didn't have the 5K display. It's jaw dropping.

Agree, [more]

Re: Since dongles are apparently the future

I suspect Apple would like to adopt it for iOS devices. But given the investment Apple and users have made in the Lightning port, they're probably reluctant to make this change just yet. (Remember the howls when Apple ditched the 30-pin dock [more]

Re: iPhone 7

The loss of the jack will not be a deal breaker for most. But it won't boost sales either. It will just add a little to the slow sales decline.
