The thing that's being missed here is that anything can go off the rails, and it has nothing to do with the premise that was brought up. Of course, if there's a massive market correction, as Carl is saying there will be sometime out to the next five years, then every expectation for the market will drop. So what? That's not the point. We could be hit by a massive asteroid, and civilization might fall. So what?We can't think like that. If we do, we might as well stop...
There's no evidence that the buybacks contributed to this rise by more than just a bit. There's never evidence that buybacks do that. It's Apple's rising sales and profits that have done most of it.You're painting a picture that's possible, but not likely. Apple Pay is being estimated to be a major source of profits for Apple, but it will take a good two years for enough new phones and new terminals in retail to get there. Apple knows this, and so does the financial...
I'm not sure I get your point. Everything could go down in a correction. Apple dropped by more than a half during 2007. I bought another 1,000 shares then. It cost $80 thousand, which is not a lot from an investment perspective. What is that worth now? Exactly!Is the market up ten times since then? Exactly!
I see a lot of guys like that. People call me up constantly asking for advice. It's a difficult call at times, but I usually tell them to hold, unless the stock is down, when I tell them to buy.But mvigod, and other like him really don't understand market psychology. They think it's all numbers, when it clearly it's not. They don't look far enough around the market to see that what they say is only true in a few cases, and not even all the time. I've done well because I...
I do hope you don't give investment advice.
No. That's not true. It doesn't work that way. Stock price is as much a psychological number as a technical one. Look at Amazon, and tell me why the stock is priced where it is. It's expectations that make a stock price as much as anything else.Apple stands a very good chance of hitting a trillion. When exactly, is another story. Good luck with Stratasys, you'll need it.
No, it's not, really!Yes, a number of things would have to come together, but that doesn't make it impossible. I'm not so sure that it will hit that number by the end of the 2014 financial year, which we're now in. But I'm not clear on whether they mean by sometime in the 2015 financial year, as that would be "next year" for Apple if we're talking the financial year. If so, then yes, I can certainly see that.So several factors.One would be that Apple is still slightly...
It's not meaningless. It's no different than saying that the stock could hit, say, 170. As an investor, I'm interested in knowing what they are thinking. There are a lot of possible investments to make, and there is no direct way to know which are really better than other good ones. I've stuck with Apple, but there are many people who compare Apple, Alibaba, etc. how to know which to put more money into is a difficult decision.Going by the technicals doesn't always yield a...
Apple has risen about 41% so far this year. It's risen almost 70% before it took the plunge. I checked my realtime account, and it's about $114.62 right now. The market capitalization is just under $670 billion. Next year? Sure, I suppose it can, as long as sales remain strong, we don't see a major problem with iPad sales, and the watch does well enough.As long as Apple doesn't buy too many shares back, that is. That makes it more difficult.
I'm not convinced of the need for a 21MP sensor yet. The problem with smartphone cameras is there is not optical zoom. Using higher Rez sensors allows a high quality image even with "zoom", which is actually cropping. I've wished that Apple would use newer sensors though. The 16MP version would be about perfect. And with the option for 128GB storage, there is enough space.
