  • Apple extends share buybacks by $90B, raises dividends by 5%

    JWSC said:
    I’m waiting for the ‘innumerati’ to chime in on how share buybacks are like throwing money in the fireplace. 😆
    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe buy backs or dividends ever happened when Jobs was in charge.  He said he wanted to “keep his powder dry”.  Was Jobs innumerate?

    Good, but heaven knows why it was allowed in the first place. Absolute cesspool. 
    Parler is no different than facebook or twitter.
    Parler is different because the reason for their existence is right wing hate.

  • Wall Street reacts to Apple's strong Services and Wearables growth [u]

    blastdoor said:
    It is a huge deal that Apple is showing an ability to grow revenue from something other than the iPhone. 

    In the short term, though, the stock seems a bit pricey. Since 2007, I've had the impression that when the P/E goes above 17, AAPL is likely due for a correction. Currently, the P/E is almost 21. 

    On the other hand... one reason Wall Street might have been skeptical about AAPL in the past was a concern that they were too dependent on one product. Perhaps if Apple can show revenue+profit growth across multiple products, Wall Street might tolerate a higher P/E. 

    Still, I suspect that between now and the middle of next year AAPL will experience a noticeable downturn. I'm just not sure when. 
    Of course in terms of the recent history of Apple’s P/E,  you’re correct that 21 is high, so you may be correct in your bearish assessment.  But it’d be great if you could contextualize your concern about 21 and explain why it’s high when we realize Microsoft and Google are at 27, Facebook is 31, and Amazon is 78.  If 21 is high for Apple, aren’t these other values even higher for the competition?  Why is this?
    For my money, P/E has never been a good metric. Stocks are clearly more valuable based on perception, not reality.
    I'd agree with you there, but I'm hoping to hear from Blastdoor.  I'm actually with Horace Dediu who says:  "Cash-flow is a fact; profits are an opinion; P/E is a dream."

    Apple is stuffing this down developers throats.   Apple will now have more control over app developers. I am not sure this is good for app developers are some of the other changes.     
    Your short posting history reveals your agenda. Your FUD is nonsense and wasted here. 
    You're right, AZGuy is a troll.  I wish they had an ETI instruction:  Execute Troll Immediately!
