If I am an investor picking the one that is Winning and being right, is completely meaningful.    Meaningful all the way to the bank.   Knowing when to get out before it is obvious that it is "Losing" is just as meaningful.    Where a company is 10, 20, 100, 300, 500 years from now. I could care less. Thus meaningless.
pretty sure this means,   revenue is less meaningful when compared to profit/loss. If we look at the US Internal Revenue Service and the Government as a single "company" if you will.  In 2012, the IRS generated $2.5 trillion of revenue. I ask you to look at the US balance sheet and tell me they are "Winning" when you compare it to the debt. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_tax_revenue_by_state
If you believe that then this would mean that there is no end. Thus end game is meaningless.   this is why the poster used the word "winning" and not "won" .  Winng would represent a summary of all events which lead up to the present and a prediction on future trend. Won would represent represent the final outcome. You are right, anything can happen tomorrow, but is not what the word "winning" means. In terms of profits per quarter, which do have closure on a per quarter...
end game is meaningless if you never get there.
gents, I think you are  both in violent agreement? no? 15% of 175B = ~26B
it seems to me that Staples does a lot of clearance on HW.  I get junk mail from them and its always seems to have highly discounted PC's and tablets.  Must more so than Best Buy.
Dick Applebaum,glad we are aligned.  Its not just internet websites. I laugh when people complain about having 1000 channels and there is nothing good to watch.   The content out there is just plain insulting to people's intelligence, IMHO.   Yet, they keep watching and do nothing about it.   Networks keep racking in the money and keep getting bigger.    That's reality unfortunately of our society.   Oh well. Not my problem.  I just tune out and read a book instead of...
as I stated in my post #133, its not hard to figure out why trolls come.  Same reason kids act out.  They want to be heard and feel like people care about what they have to say and that they exist.
Dick Applebaum,I think its important to keep perspective of our roles as posters to AI, the authors, and ultimately the purpose of this website.  AI exists to make money. It does this from mostly from selling ad real estate. The more eyes and time people spend reading the website, the more AI makes.  To get more eyes here, AI hires people draw more Apple fans here (like myself) on a daily basis. Ironically, because it is so active it also attracts trolls like honey. These...
Dick Applebaum,  #1. Passionate author at AI, spends time and effort to research and create an editorial, for a popular website which attracts Apple fans and unfortunately trolls.#2. Reader in pain comes to AI for entertainment (apparently not because she is an Apple fan per your description of her), says how much she thinks nothing has changed without even bothering to read the article.  Call author names and tries to discredit him.  I've heard of grumpy old men that just...
