I agree with you.  Apple's share price never seems to follow analyst predictions like say Amazon, Priceline or Google which pretty much lock in on predictions.  Apple's share price can end up anywhere.  That's why I never understand the purpose of target prices for Apple except for the possibility of manipulation although even that doesn't make any sense.  Today's upgrade had no positive effect at all on Apple if that's what they were hoping to achieve.  Of course, the...
Only 10+ sensors for the Apple wearable?  Where's the innovation in that?  I'm fairly certain the Galaxy Gear 3 will have at least 20 sensors and be capable of jolting you back to life after you suffer a heart attack.  It's no wonder Apple is struggling for survival.  Tim Cook isn't creative enough.  The Apple wearable would have had full life-support capabilities if Steve Jobs were alive.  Total body stasis and intelligent nano-bot injection capabilities.  10+ sensors is...
Sapphire can be used in so many other applications apart from consumer tech products or just for Apple's use.  There are plenty of sapphire in the medical field which Apple seems to be getting into.  Hospitals may no longer bother with those standard steel blade or tungsten carbide scalpels and use sapphire ones instead if the prices come down enough.  Sapphire blade scalpels can hold a sharper edge longer.  I'm thinking that sapphire could be used in artificial joints if...
100 million iPhones is a huge number. That would definitely break all sorts of sales records.
Being "disappointed" is a relative perception and not really something you can measure with pure numbers.  A company being measured by meeting or failing to meet "expectations" is another relative thing that can't be measured, but this is how Apple is being measured by the news media and Wall Street.  Even having more than enough can certainly make humans feel disappointed.  It's hard for me to understand how Wall Street can be disappointed with the most valuable publicly...
This wearable's thing is going to turn into another market share pissing contest by the news media and Wall Street.  I honestly don't understand why everything is about market share.  If Apple were to sell 30 million wearable devices they would instantly take major market share and then it'll constantly be about how Apple is losing market share to Samsung and Motorola and Pebble or whatever.  Why can't the focus be on how good the devices are for consumers?  Samsung...
I'll bet we won't see nearly as many articles about whether Priceline spent too much money for OpenTable as Apple spent on Beats or whether Priceline's CEO knows what the hell he's doing.  I'm fairly certain Priceline is taking far more risk than Apple did but where's all the second-guessing about this deal.  Of course, Priceline gets a free pass unlike Apple because the hedge funds are completely enamored with Priceline.  Priceline has about $7 billion cash and is...
A "throng"?!!!  Who cares about crowds?  I came here because I thought they had photos of Angela wearing a "thong".
All the news media is always looking for holes in Apple's business.  Why?  Because that's what gets people attention.  It's like poking a stick at a hornet's nest.  In this case, Apple's defenders and protagonists can gather round and let off steam.  No matter how much money Apple makes or how well the company is being run, there will always be those who simply want clicks and they'll use any little excuse to get it.  I always figured if Apple is really self-destructing,...
That makes sense.  The analysts aren't doing their jobs properly.  I guess my new reset number is $110.  I think that's going to take a little longer for Apple to reach.  I think only super-high iPhone sales and a wearable device near the end of the year are going to get it that high.
