Roku, Next Big Tech Flop Or Opportunity?

What about #Apple? I thought the Apple TV was still a popular choice. $AAPL

What Makes Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google So Special

There is something magical about #Apple, #Amazon, #Facebook and #Google. Did the author provide any insight into any other companies? $AAPL $AMZN $FB $GOOGL

What Makes Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google So Special
Ayelet Wolf 1/16/2018 12:58:13 PM

Sounds like an interesting read. But it doesn't sound like it answers the deeper questions. For example, I agree that #Apple creates a form of lust in it's loyal customers, to, as you said, "driving them to pay irrational prices when there are essentially identical products available from competitors at far lower prices." But HOW has Apple achieved this? Yes, #Amazon has built itself up from an upstart book seller, to essentially being able to provide for every aspect of our lives. but HOW did they manage to achieve this? Every other book seller is now either still just selling books, or out of business all together. $AAPL $AMZN $FB $GOOGL

Why Is Apple In Talks With Sharp For OLED Displays When It Will Likely Be Buying From Samsung?
Barry Hochhauser 1/16/2018 11:52:31 AM

Where does #Apple get all of it's batteries from? With its recent announcement that it will replace batteries at a discount, and that this will speed up older devices, I assume there will be a major increase in demand.

The Market Before Christmas

Cute title, I enjoyed the pun. How do I find more about the class action law suit suiting #Apple? It's clearly an excuse to push people to buyer newer models since old models are can still be purchased brand new, with a perfectly good battery. $AAPL

The Case for Shorting Apple
Danny Straus 10/17/2017 9:50:26 PM

Innovate is what #Apple does best. They didn't invent the cell phone nor the MP3 player or anything else. They indentify promising products and then make them better. This is what they do and what they will continue to do. Apple isn't going anywhere! Bullish on $AAPL.

The Case for Shorting Apple
Craig Newman 10/17/2017 9:48:08 PM

With #iPad sales way down, #Apple has begun to bank on it's #iPhone line as buyers tend to buy new phones with far greater frequency than tablets. But as an investor, I recommend that Apple find the "next big thing" to diversify.

The company first got big with it's ipod... who even has a dedicated mp3 player anymore. If they don't continue to innovate with newer and better products, the company will go extinct.

The Case for Shorting Apple

While I generally love #Apple and its products, I think the fan boys keep $AAPL stock a bit higher than it deserves - that being said, that rabid loyalty can't be discounted and does add value to the company. It means any serious errors will be quickly forgiven and even mediocre products will sell well.

It takes guts to say anything negative about #Apple. $AAPL

Netflix’s Price Increase Signals Original Content Isn’t Enough
Michele Grant 10/9/2017 7:56:41 PM

I think #Netflix users are a bit like #Apple fan boys. They love the product so much, they are blind to any detractions, even when valid and critical to the company's long term health. I think we can all agree, Netflix has a wonderful product with many satisfied users. But the financials don't lie and can't be ignored.

Winner & Losers from Amazon’s Proposed Purchase of Whole Foods
Alexis Renault 6/20/2017 6:42:53 PM

I agree but I wouldn't be surprised if we started seeing #Amazon Kiosks in the corner of every #WholeFoods location. A great way to sell their actual devices, similar to mini #Apple Stores. $AMZN $WFM $AAPL

Quiet Life: Interview With Netanel Eyal, CEO & Co-Founder
Linda Willis 3/29/2017 2:32:48 PM

This looks like a cool, innovative product. But tell me Netanel Eyal, what is to stop companies with a large existing user base, like #Amazon or #Apple from moving in and replicating your accomplishments, by integrating a similar technology into their products? Hat tip to Carl Schwartz for pointing this out. $AMZN $AAPL

Apple Is Slowly Blowing Companies Away
Harry Goldstein 2/27/2017 3:29:50 PM

Yes, both Bob and Vintage Vixen have good points. I don't think most people think of #Apple as a phone company, but their revenue does seem overly dependent on their #iPhone sales. Their iPads are built too well to need frequent upgrades so tablet sales have been slowing for a while. No one needs a dedicated mp3 player anymore and they simply haven't found "the next big thing yet." With Steve Jobs gone, who knows if they ever will. $APPL

Apple Is Slowly Blowing Companies Away
Dick Kaplan 2/24/2017 10:02:14 PM

This is where #Apple excels - they identify promising products that aren't realizing its full potential. Then they build a better version of that product. Apple did not invent smart watches, computers, MP3 players, or tablets. They just build better products.

Why Barclays Downgraded Apple
Jason Stewart 1/24/2017 3:36:51 PM

With regards to #Apple's exposure to China, the current administration could also negatively impact this front via a trade war. Some are understandably skeptical of this actually coming to full fruition but judging by rhetoric and promise, the chance of this happening has increased. I'd imagine we'll be hearing sooner rather than later on this subject as it is a major point of contention for the current administration. $AAPL

Ignore All The Hype Around BlackBerry Ltd Stock
Dick Kaplan 1/4/2017 5:17:43 AM

Personally, I don't see the rationale of #Blackberry getting into the self-driving car market. Especially when companies like #Google and #Apple are aggressively pursuing it, I don't see how Blackberry could pull ahead. $BBRY $GOOGL $AAPL
