OK Folks!

 

* How many of you own Apple shares ?

 

* How many of you own an apple product---iphone, ipad, imac, I_whatever ?

 

I'm looking at the screen right now and apple has been in a tail spin since last September.

 

If you recall, back in Sept 2012 Apple was trading just over $700---right now Apple is at $428.60

 

From a market capitalization of 662 billion---Apple's market cap has plunged to 402 billion.

 

260 BILLION HAS BEEN WIPED OUT IN THE PAST 7 MONTHS--POOF!

 

Goldman Sachs took apple off its most highly recommended list of stocks today.

 

QUESTION:

 

Is Apple becoming the JC Penny of tech ?

 

STEVE JOBS MUST BE WEEPING IN HIS GRAVE!

 

 

CONCLUSION:

 

Nothing stays up forever---nothing stays #1 forever---nothing stays in power forever---the folks in political who despise the PPP will love this----the PPP will not stay in power forever---or will they be an exception to the rule ?

 

WILL APPLE RECOVER ITS GLORY ?

Apple has had 25 to 30 percent of the Computer marked for over a decade and they will continue to do so given they have uniformly performing products that are as easy to use as toaster ovens and in many cases superior to the PC. They also have cultivated an elitist status and many like that feeling of being a part of something that is ( and factually so in specific instances) better. They are not going anywhere since there is nothing out there doing what they do to fill the void, at least in the near future.

Rev,

 

Nice Apple Avatar in your post.

 

Well I regret not buying Apple shares during the early days. I am an Apple fanboy, if you may. I started using Apple products from the 90's and have not looked back. I own each of Apple line of products and will continue to do so. The entire family own Apple products.

 

Apple's current problem is new Innovation. Since Steve's departure, they have failed to continue his legacy. In fact they are riding on his legacy and innovation. 

 

The new kid on the block is Samsung as they now have a better understanding on how Apple operates and are going toe to toe with Apple. Apple tried the strong arm approach towards Samsung which fought back and I must add quite successfully.

 

Apple is here to stay but may no longer remain the market leader but will remain a force in the post PC era. Let us not forget that they are worth over 400 Billion. Take a look at most universities and colleges and you will see a very loyal brand oriented generation of users. Their products are still the favourite pick among the young crowd. Brand Loyalty is crucial to the survival of any company and Apple has a very loyal customer base.

 

What goes up must come down but Apple will bounce back. Just like the PPP which had a setback at the recent elections, Apple has to adjust to the changing dynamics of the post PC era.

Yuji:

 

Solid post! You should have taken a bite of the apple back in late 2009---the stock was trading in the high 70s back then---it then ran up to 700 last year---but since peaking check out the downtrend:

 

 

 

Anyway, Apple is a great company, but in the tech industry you cannot sit on your laurels, there is always some newbie or innovative company on the block that will knock you down.

 

FACEBOOK IS ALREADY GETTING OLD.

 

 

RE: BLACKBERRY

 

We have all seen how they disintegrated----BB was trading at $150 in 2008---it then dropped to $6 dollars---I see it's back up to $15.34 today.

 

Raymond is hoping for BB to return to $150.

hahahah, high flyers will always come down to earth. This is not the first stock that have been pushed to unsustainable heights by irrational investors. The big traders recognized the appeal of apple to the younger hipper crowd but they also recognized that the younger crowd is fickle. Then they took their profits and ran and left the yuppies holding the bag. Over the past 5 years this stock went from 85 to 400, that is not bad if you bought in 2008. ahahahaha

there is no damn post PC era. A PC is always a stand alone fully operational computing device and Tablets are simply truncated PCs.

 

Stormy,

 

Post PC era is an Apple jargon. Look up Apple Ipad presentations. Tablets will not replace PC's.

Ok, Ok Cain I agree. The AFC bit a big chunk off the PPP's Apple. The PPP is still sore from that bite. I am staying clear of politics in social.

 

Good call.

Did you know that Issac Newton lost his fortune when he invested in South Sea stock back in 1718 to 1721 ?

 

CHECK THIS CHART:

 

 

 

 

READ NEWTON'S COMMENTS AFTER HE LOST HIS FORTUNE:

 

"I can calculate the movement of stars, but not the madness of men," Newton  apparently said after he lost his fortune.lol

In the tech industry you always have to re-invent yourself. IBM moved from emphasis on Big Iron to IT services. Microsoft is moving to cloud services. Amazon moved into that space with the Elastic Compute Cloud services. Google is still riding search and helped move Business Intelligence to the point of Hadoop and NoSql. Even Facebook uses Big Data to reinvent itself. Samsung is like Nokia redux. Remember when Symbian dominated the early smartphone OS?

 

Apple owned its own ecosphere. It gave you products you did not think you'd need. It too will reinvent itself.

That's funny amral.

 

Now, if you had to choose between 50 shares of apple stock and a 50 share of that apple crop, which would you choose ?

 

Lemme help you with the math:

 

* Apple is trading right now at $435.61----so 50 shares is $21,780.50

 

TAKE YOUR PICK

 

50 shares or a 50 share. Which would it be ?

You own a whole apple tree ? You must be a rich woman--amral says he only owns a 50 share.

 

So shanaz what do you do with all those apples on that tree ?

 

I guess you make apple sauce, apple juice, apple pies, what else ?
