Re: Apple discussion thread

Not that I would make financial decisions based on this, but it seemed interesting. Anyone with more experience trading have an opinion on this:

Re: Apple discussion thread

Thoughts on the stock hitting $1000 by this time next year (if not earlier)??

Re: Apple discussion thread

A reliable source wrote that AAPL could buy every NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL team and still have some money left over. Seems like no matter what they'll do fine in the long run.

Re: Apple discussion thread

Yeah, this is frankly just an opportunity for me to pick up some call on the cheap as the iPad Mini and iPhone 5 announcements in the Fall are going to send the stock skyrocketing. Earnings in Q1 (Q4 Calendar) are going to be through the roof if they really do release a $299 iPad Mini.

i would assume the margins on the ipad mini will be even smaller than the other products they sell.....hurting their margins even more.

just sayin...

If you get a noname smartphone with a quadcore chip that outperform the 4 S
for 299$ i think there margin is more 50-60%.

Ifl you love Apple and want pay the hype and dont like the open world Apple might work for awhile.

Myself prefer an open system with a good performance, but none of the mobile devices so far is good enough for me. I still prefer netbooks, laptops and a PC.

Smartphones and tablets are more or less toys instead tools for me...and Apple offer the most expensive ones .

I use a smartphone but its one that offer 98% of Apples performance for 30% of the price.

Re: Apple discussion thread

Apple is a misunderstood company because at heart it's a software company that monetizes its value though the sale of high margin hardware. What you get when you buy an Apple product is an entire ecosystem. Your missing the whole point of apple if you think you can get 98% of the performance for 30% of the price. You may get the same hardware specs but you will not get the same user experience.

You can actually get 100+% of the performance for 30% of the price, because for the vast majority of people (who aren't artists, graphic designers, etc), the WINDOWS ecosystem is far superior (gaming, microsoft office, etc). Actually for 60-70% of the people (who basically only use their web browser), the CHROME OS ecosystem is far superior (ease of use, security, etc).

In the mobile space (phones + tablets), I will agree that the Apple ecosystem is top notch, but it doesn't win in every area compared to the Android ecosystem. It has more, and higher quality apps (and media integration), but its "cloud" platform is worse/less stable, soon its Maps app will be 2 years behind, etc.
