Apple and Apple shareholders are only getting what has been due from Wall Street over the last couple of years. What I mean is that Apple is finally being recognized as a very successful company that has changed both the computer and cellphone industry immensely and has provided many jobs whether locally or abroad. For Wall Street to ignore Apple the way it has just seems criminal. Over this past quarter, I'm more than satisfied over Apple's share price boost and I have...
The Android vendors can brag about selling as many smartphones as they want, but if their business isn't profitable it doesn't add up to a hill of beans. Wall Street doesn't seem to fully comprehend this. Even if most Android vendors sold twice as many smartphones as they're selling now, they're not going to turn a profit. The Android smartphone business model is not as good as Wall Street thinks it is. Consumers are eventually going to figure out that buying some...
$1499 is affordable to me since I paid that much about five years ago for a 42" Sony. 42 inches is about as much as I need in display size since my viewing distances are limited. I watch most of my TV via Slingbox on my 15.4" MacBook Pro, so if the AppleTV offers some easy programming choices, I'll go with it. I'm an Apple shareholder so basically when I buy it, it will be using Apple profits to buy the TV which works out perfectly to increase more Apple...
It could certainly be that the customer base is growing so fast that customer service is being overwhelmed. It's definitely something to watch for but Apple should be able to correct the problem whatever it is. Since Apple is the wealthiest company on the planet, the media is definitely going to look for every fault it can find so that Apple doesn't slack off. Apple will be under a microscope so critics can point out how poorly run Apple actually is and that its wealth...
But... but... Android is winning. Android has major smartphone UNIT market share and that's what excites Wall Street. It's those big round daily activation numbers that sets investors' and analysts' hearts aflutter. Where is Apple going to get all that future growth potential needed to survive as a company when Android is capturing the hearts and minds of the impoverished masses? Apple should get out of the smartphone industry now while it still has some dignity left.
Apple must absolutely not have this opportunity slip through their fingers . Apple seems to have nearly everything in place to be the first mover and it would be a damn shame for some Android vendor to just slip in with some cheap plastic tablet and take over. Apple should be able to throw more resources at this initiative than even the once mighty Microsoft. Apple would be doing schools and students a great disservice if they weren't aggressive enough in deploying...
I still hear people yelling that tablets are useless, especially those iPads made by Apple. It's amazing that Apple is selling so many "toys" and that a "toy" company is sitting as the wealthiest company by market cap on the planet. Who woulda thunk? I never dreamed it could or would happen even as Apple passed Microsoft's market cap. I hope that Apple is able to slowly climb in value over the next couple of years without any major mishaps.
Warren Buffett has assured Amazon investors that he will keep the company afloat as long as it takes to become bigger than Apple, so he can retire as rich man. He likes Jeff Bezos strategy. He likes it a lot. In a week, you won't even remember that Amazon's share price is down today because the Oracle of Omaha has vowed to pour back money into Amazon and keep the P/E well above 105 because he sees a younger version of himself in Jeff Bezos. Both are wild and crazy guys...
Losing money is part of the plan. Now it all makes sense. That's why Apple has a P/E of 13 and Amazon has a P/E of 100+. You have to lose money to make money and that's Apple's problem. They're not losing enough money to make a lot more money. Why didn't I think of that before. Apple's business model is all wrong and that's why Apple's valuation is all out of whack. A company needs plenty of debt and low margins to become a Wall Street model like Amazon. It's that...
I have to wonder about Amazon and the Kindle's ecosystem. Although it's a good idea to serve Amazon Prime customers, in the end, catering to cheapskates is not the greatest thing to make money. Cheapskates always remain cheapskates and they're always looking to find ways to save money. Amazon would have to lower prices for everything and then try to move vast amounts of media content just to get a little above break-even returns. They say you can't squeeze blood out of...
