    Well., as long as the plantation owners are happy.

    Go get yourself a good education, then get out and see the world, as you are obviously clueless.

    Ah! I sincerely asked about it yesterday. It seems crazy that dividends per share would not be divided but I have no experience or knowledge with dividends after a split so I did ask. So I guess I'm the only ignorant one around here.

    My wife was all excited about that too lol, I felt bad telling her. That said, it would have been a great way for Tim to give back the wealth. :D I would suggest only allowing long time share holders to have the 7x increase though ... :smokey:

    I'd suspect it does given the entire stock thing is so psychological, there seems to be zero actual math involved for Wall Street. I am many others have argued that a stock split would be a good idea for the last few years only to be told it would never happen and we were stupid by many 'experts' on this blog. Oh well, it's nice to see Tim agrees with us :smokey:

    I am disappointed the dividends are being split by 7 too though ... Tim what were you thinking? :D

    Thanks so much. I never thought to look up In the upper right corner of the screen for that drop down menu; the information there is only presented when I'm scrolled to the top of a page am I'm never at the top of an article when I'm thinking about adding a signature, so I never saw it. Whew, thought I was losing my mind.

    I am not familiar with the stock market in the least, but I am curious: Is Apple among a select few of companies that continue to confound Wall Street, or is this type of mis-analyzing common? Or even to drive down stock prices to be an attractive buy, but with the inevitable upturn (I mean come on, it's Apple) so they can sell the stocks for a profit? Why does Apple continue to be misjudged?

    All of the above.  And more.

    While I liked the upside surprise that Apple reported with earnings, for me, the best thing about listening to the CC was the confidence that I heard in Tim Cook. IMO, it was his best performance as Apple CEO to date. Always trying to read between the lines, I hope this new confidence is brought on not by just a good quarter, but what Apple has in store for the rest of the year. Listening to Cook this CC made me feel much more confident in what Apple has planned for the future.

    I'm impressed by all the sizes and colors. That takes dedication.
    Same here. His posts are utter insanity, not to mention 'colorful.'

    bad example, since currency has a fix value, it like going to store and the guy trying to convince you top pay a high value for something and calm is it a rear product and you can see right behind him that his store is pack to the ceiling with the product. In this case stock are like supply and demand the more supply you have the lower the value it has, then supply is low and demand is high the the value goes up.

     

    Too many share of a stock is generally seen as diluting it value. It is pure economics. Also add in fact that apple was buying back shares, why, to reduce the total number of share their by increasing its value, they just undid what they been trying to do.

     

    Also do not confuse value with price you pay. two different concepts.

    I have to agree with this, this has been my investment strategy for a long time, I rather buy a company which good fundamentals $10 and buy a 1000 share of it verse buy a similar company at $100/share and get a 100 share since a $10 value company will hit $20 faster then a $100 share going to $200. I made more money on the lower value stocks then I ever made on the more expensive stocks. The more expense stocks are controlled my a smaller select group of investors so you subject to their whims, also some large institutional investors are required to keep and hold stocks like apple depending on their public disclosed investment strategy so when you do an expensive stock it may not grow as it would have if it was a lower value.

     

    But Apple having now 6B outstanding shares makes it too diluted so it may not increase in value as it might have otherwise/

    You are just embarrassing yourself.  Maybe take an introductory college course in economics first okay?
