Mac sales don't count for hardly anything as far as Apple's revenue stream is concerned.  It's all about iPhone market share and Apple is losing that in huge amounts.  Apple shareholders will be lucky if Apple shares stay above $500.  Apple is a joke of an investment.  Google has a target price of around $1350 while Apple has a target price of around $590.  One stock will reach it and the other won't.  It's no secret that company with a CEO named Tim Cook is going repeat...
But both of those companies's products are gaining in market share and that's all that matters to everyone.
Apple is trying hard to improve their tablets but it's probably a waste of time and effort. Nearly all consumers want to buy a $200 Android tablet just to save money. Apparently most consumers can't differentiate the quality difference and just automatically buy the cheaper product especially if it's only half the price of an iPad. That's why the iPad's market share has fallen off a cliff.
No matter what Apple comes out with, Samsung will try to one-up Apple. That's how successful businesses compete. Samsung must have a huge R&D department seeing how they manage to put out so many products of all different types within such a short time. Apple can barely manage to put out one new product a year while Samsung comes out with 20 new products which I find amazing from a logistics standpoint. Their product planning division must have hundreds of people...
It's like sticking a propeller on a jet. Go buy a BlackBerry if you need a damn keyboard that badly. Considering BlackBerry's current financial predicament, it would appear that having a physical keyboard on a smartphone isn't quite what it was cracked up to be.
All Apple would need to do is take some of that unused reserve cash pile and expand the business into other areas such as mobile payments, cloud services or creating its own search engine and ad business. That way Apple could lower the price of some of its iPhones and still be able to boost revenue and offset some of those margin losses. Tim Cook needs to think outside of his little hardware only box. Android already owns the smartphone industry due to completely...
Exactly how high is the demand for the Mac Pro? It would seem that Apple is simply taking too much time to build each one, as usual. Are we talking 10,000 or 100,000 Mac Pro units being available? Has Apple ever mentioned any production rates or sales figures for this new Mac Pro?
Carl Icahn is a fool for wasting his time with Apple. He could pick any tech stock name out of a hat and find a better performing stock. Tim Cook is practically useless as a CEO. A company with all that reserve cash and yet Tim Cook can't figure out how to boost shareholder value by normal means except for some financial sleight-of-hand with buybacks. Where are all these products that Apple is supposed to be selling. I read all these stories of how Apple is leading in...
With Tim Cook at the helm, things can only go downhill from here on in. He really appears clueless about cash hoards and revenue streams.
2014 is going to be another lousy year for Apple long-term investors.  Tim Cook is doing nothing to put shareholder value into Apple.  I honestly don't know why Apple doesn't use its reserve cash to create additional revenue streams.  Absolutely nothing extra is coming from their core hardware business.  Apple could easily expand into mobile payments, cloud services or get into the search engine and ad click business.  All of the top tech companies are diversifying so they...
