They’ve been calling for that since before he became CEO. He couldn’t care less about idiots.

That’s absolutely right. YOU are the issue. Not Apple.
I talked to an Apple engineer over the holiday break and he was genuinely excited about the product pipeline.
That’s proof that you should sell.
…that doesn’t mean Apple is going to make more money.
Yeah, they sure didn’t post 13 billion in profit in the recent past or anything.
Shareholders were fine with Apple accumulating cash when Apple was growing.
Which makes zero sense, but you guys are the ones shorting the fourth most successful quarter in human history, so you aren’t known for making sense.
Well guess what Tim Cook, Apple isn't growing anymore and we want our money.
Your money? What did you do for it? Did you come up with the product ideas? Did you design the products? Did you manufacture them? Did you do the coding? Did you figure out how to efficiently ship them? Did you hire the people responsible for any of these?
Have you done any work whatsoever other than giving an initial investment?
No? Then shut up.
Do you similarly whine when a bank doesn’t increase your interest rate over time? “Oh, interest rates are staying the same; my money is only growing at an even rate; better fire the head of the bank!”
No. You shut up, take your money out, and go somewhere else that fits your needs. Thing about Wall Street is that no one promised you an increasing rate of growth even if you can have one, and the thing about a bank is that you’re not going to get an increasing rate of growth, but at least you won’t lose money. Unless it’s HSBC.
It is our money, not his. Give it back.
Get over it and sell. There’s your money back.
