Maybe stop giving Kanye West such an enormous media platform to document his mental illness? And I don't mean banning him from Apple Music. I mean just stop writing, blogging and talking about him all the time. Since he started these rants, his online presence has increased by a quantum level. So everyone, stop, just stop. Let him be Kanye, let his fans support him, and the rest of us can forget him.

If you really wanted to make money off Apple, you should have (maybe you did) bought Apple when it was at $10 a Share.I had a Chance, but decided not to (and you can all thank me) as I bought Commodore, which made the Amiga. As you may know, Commodore was scammed by the higher-ups and went Bankrupt.
The reason I didn't buy Apple is, I didn’t want to Jinx and Bankrupt my only other alternative to Windows. And, at the time, Apple was teetering on the Brink too! So, your Welcome! I sacrificed Millions so you all could have an Insanely Great Computer and other Products. No Dividend needed. The only reason for Stock in the First Place, in Silicon Valley, is to entice Workers (Engineers and Managers) to Join the Company.As far as the Sphere goes, it doesn’t look like a True Sphere to me. It has several Latitudes of Flat Curved Panels. The Ground Floor seems to imitate Apple Park with its Curved Glass and Sun Shades, but the Upper Panels look like they cheapened-out. There was a chance to do some really Innovative Vertically and Horizontally Compound Curved Panels for a Seamless (from a Distance) True Sphere that would have been on Par in Design and Construction with the Space Ship in Cupertino!

Betting my dividends would be higher if Apple spent a teeeeeny bit less on these eclectic and expensive stores that are popping up. Apple customers don't need a "floating dome" to shop for Apple goods and services. A mall store is just fine for me.
As a shareholder, you could've had that concern when Apple first started building stores in premium locations, but now that it's been over 20 years with Apple both building an anchor store that helps bring in foot traffic to a location that then drives up the desire for other stores to be placed next to an Apple Store (which means they can get much better deals from the leaser) and has the highest revenue per square feet (even beating out Tiffany's soon after launching) you have no ground to stand on and complain about the fucking share pice.
How about Apple stops doing dividends since that affects the share price, too?
Being a Boomer isn't all bad. Zero debt, plenty of free time with no need to work, still in good health with all our teeth, brand new Volvos every 5 years or so. How you doing, Xer?
PS: Your cash? Wow! How much of an entitled prick do you have to be to claim that Apple's success in business is hoarding your cash? If you don't like Apple's business model then sell your stock and invest elsewhere.
