War On Sell Side Wall Street - Apple Edition: To $1,000 & Beyond!

Reggie Middleton's picture

This is a video follow-up to the post I did a couple of weeks ago after the Apple earnings announcement titled "Again, The Sell Side Analysts (Even The Rock Star Analysts) Don't Seem To Understand The Mobile Computing Wars".

Initially, I was going to go the PC (as in politically correct) route and treat Mr. Munster with kids gloves, but we're all adults here and I want everyone to realize that this is not a form of character assassination, a personal or professional attack, libel, slander or even my just being rude. Gene Munster is a professional, and a seemingly intelligent one at that. It's just that he is wrong, dead wrong, and has been wrong for some time. Despite his extreme inaccuracies regarding Apple and its share price, he is the go to guy for the financial press and mainstream media, not to mention the Apple-centric blogosphere for all things Apple investment related - despite his being wrong as hell. 

First reference this quick 3 minute video...

 

Now reference the following graphic illustrating a search on Mr. Munster's Apple price targets...

Apple will probably grind sideways for awhile. It looks lost without Jobs... much like America itself... lost and without jobs.

Actually, using "old" tech is okay.

First gen touch tone phone with cassette answering, attached to wall with a wire - cheap.

Windows 08 and a Dell PC patched together with expandable storage - cheap.

Older model Zenith TV with rabbit ears and attic antenna - cheap.

I don't tweet so I'm not a 'Twit' and only answer the messages that count - love delete!

NM Reggie, I think you make an excellent case - if you are right, then hitting it correctly on ZH is a nice hit.  If you are wrong, its also a good place to be wrong :D

 

I think only QE $100B/month is likely to send APL over $1k - but with Ol' Yellen, I'm not sure Id bet any important body parts on the outcome.

like most technology company's, they get old and die, quick.  exponentially faster (see moores law) death rates every day.  as related to mobile computing, buying AAPL is the equivalent of investing in sony after the release of Walkman technology.

Actually, its more like buying Apple after the release of the iPad/iPhone tech.

I don't know, but I am in the middle of arguing with Sony over a Sony Experia phone that decided to crack its screen by itself. The thing just cracked while it was running a video. Take a look at what comes up when you Google Experia Z cracked screens. The customer service people are consummate assholes. They don't seem to think their repair/return policies are global. So admission of defect in one market does not mean you won't get fucked in another market.

No it's not my phone. But I am usually very adept at dealing with customer service types. I guess I am spoiled by Apple, who seem to assume I am always right. Where do they get the idea the customer is always right...

Adding insult to injury, the call center is located in China and wants to know why I don't speak Chinese to them if I live in HK. 

And no, there is no Genius Bar in the Sony service center.

I am coming around to the idea that alot of people could replace their apple computer with a mini android computer. I just bought a macmini to replace my old imac but an android mini computer would probably suffice. I understand why apple dont let you run apps on apple tv. If they did, people could replace an $600 mac mini with an $100 apple tv.

Exactly. I just replaced an entire 2013 Windows system with an Android system running off of my Sony Xperia Z Ultra phone. I've given almost no functionality, speed or performance either. 

I will produce a post soon that illustrates the system and what it can do. It also comes complete with unlimited high speed internet access as well. The post above was written on the system.

Fact is, very, very few consumers come anywhere near close to using the full power of their desktops or laptops, so a switch to a cheaper, longer lasting more portable system is the way the OEMs are going. I doubt if the majority of ZH readers can max out the capabilities of my phones CPU and grapics system.

What about Raspberry Pi B, BeagleBone Black or VIA APC?

 

All of them are microcomputers for desktops (Raspberry is bit borderline, because it is not his original purpose)  around 50-100$, cheaper then Sony Xperia Z Ultra and usually runs on a LINUX distro or on Android.

 

Of course they are not for latest games but for desktop applications like surfing or office work they are useful.

Actually, I initially blew you off as a troll but I looked up and did see that I posted content from a different article that could be considered inappropriate - hence I'll remove it. I still think you're a troll though.
