Re: What's the next growth driver??

5-10 years ago, I was right with you. The 35% growth lasted much longer that the market thought it would and I made good money making the bet. But of my post is is that Apple definitely hasn't been proving them wrong. Not recently. The facts are [more]

Re: What's the next growth driver??

So yes, a lot of phones will be broken, but that's not growth, that's replacement. And I view the Watch, Car, and VR as gimmicks, at least in the short term. But I'll tell you something that everyone has, but that everyone needs to replace, [more]

Re: What's the next growth driver??

I don't think we will ever see 35% growth in Apple (as a whole) again, just because the numbers are too big and the iPhone too remarkable in its earnings.

BTW, this is the exact attitude that Wall street has had towards Apple since [more]

Re: What's the next growth driver??

You mean, like a new size? A big part of this decline is that the sales of the 6 were so off the charts because of pent up demand. The SE seems is doing incredibly well as well, exceeding Apple's ability to supply them.

Re: Motley Fool analysis

At any rate, for a tons of reasons, and many that don't even involve Apple, I expect that AAPL will tumble 13.765% between today's close and tomorrow's opening.

Buying opportunity!!

Re: ALERT: Nothing is happening

The iPhone SE was released just a few weeks ago, and typically, Apple has a release of something in May or June. One month in between product launches is not exactly what I would call "boring".

Re: ALERT: Nothing is happening

It seems like we are in a quiet, boring holding pattern just waiting for results and new iPhones. In this quiet period we've had a nice little run up from 95 to 110 which has been welcome.

Expecting a dividend increase between 8-12%.

The iPhone 5S does have Touch ID. In fact, that was its headline feature when Apple announced the 5S.

Furthermore, it can be used for Apple Pay when paired with an Apple Watch.

Re: FBI Agrees To Hack Arkansas iPhone

Well, careful what you wish for. I don't quite see how Apple won given that apparently there is an exploitable vulnerability to access secured iPhones, and the FBI is starting to share...but I'm guessing not with Apple.

I hear rumors that Apple was going to buy Greece. Waiting for confirmation.

Apple only invests in things that will give them some type of pay back. Greece has little to nothing to offer - but it would definitely be a cheap purchase, [more]
