Re: An Apple Car Is As Likely As An...

Just occurred to me today in the traffic jam. Every time Tim Cook opens his mouth he repeats the old mantra: Apple is a product company. Apple's focus is on making great products. Building an ecosystem for cars that can be licensed by car [more]

Re: Icahn - Apple worth $216/share

"Sooner or later it's gotta run out of customers with enough bucks to keep buying its stuff."

It's not the income that has to grow. It's the income per share. Apple's business seems to be growing organically but earnings per share [more]

Re: Twitter disappoints and it's Apple's fault

Social media at its best. The usual set up is a news release that describes a social media company reporting x number of registered users immediately followed by x amount of money invested in it by some venture capital firm.

Re: 2 cents on APPL. Disagree?

"Apple pay via waving my phone or watch at a terminal will, I believe, have the same effect as Uber:"

Re: 2 cents on APPL. Disagree?

"Of course, often when Apple reports great stuff, AAPL goes down, so it's all a gamble in the short term."

I do a lot of short or mid term trading. One of the toughest psychological battle is to get out of the market this time [more]

Re: If you're a dev or just really geeky ...

I've noticed this right after the WatchKit came out. This is characteristic of Apple. Remember when the iPhone came out developers were supposed to build HTML web applications. Native apps came a year later. Everyone was like SJ is [more]

Re: Dumping Apple?

From all the complains the only one worthy of a discussion is the hardware design.

Gluing parts together, making the machines more and more compact has been a long term trend for both phones and computers at Apple.

GAAP vs non-GAAP

Anyone here can shed some light on DDD's earnings? They report both GAAP and non-GAAP EPS. The difference is huge. Like 0.03 vs 0.18. Why and how long are they going to report two numbers? How do you put a valuation on this?

Re: AAPL

For selling options you better have the cash or the shares to back it. You put up a lot of money to make a little income on it. Sure if you have a lot of dough you can generate some nice steady income this way. But don't ever think about doing it [more]
