Talk about a bubble....Apple..the worlds biggest toy maker...
As the debt-fueld consumer economy runs into a brick wall, one very well-run and innovative consumer products company garners a staggering and increasingly larger percentage of aggregate consumer spending. Impressive to behold. Sure hope Apple isn't too dependant on any one single mortal being...
I am not sure how dependant Apple's longterm prospects are on Steve Jobs but Job's death would be a short term disaster.
Makes it worth maintaining those deep out of the money AAPL puts.
Man you hit that one out of the ball park. I never put it in those terms but you're right. The stock of a toy maker is now a "safe haven."
Well, people are retards, and retards love toys! What else could be more Safe Haven? Link to picture of three retards
Shit, sorry, wrong retards. Here we are:
When a toy manufacturer is the biggest shark around that's about everything you need to know about your fellow man
The FAO Schwartz of computer gadgets and toys on steriod, all the manufacturing for whihc is done by elves in China. What a business model to be proud of. A wealth extraction machine of the highest order. "An iPad in every home, and an unemployment check in every mailbox."
my mac products make me fucking happy, i'm typing on a mac right now having a good fucking time on my favorite website, best money i've ever spent, pc's suck, just bought more apple stock and have a shit ton already, apple should be worth twice the amount of a bunch of shit european banks
oh, and reggie hasn't the foggiest idea of what he is talking about when it comes to apple, so far i've been right and he has been wrong, i'm a champion
Everybody is free to pay 50% more, for about same functionality in a nicer package...
By the way has a[pple finally introduced the right mouse button, so mac users can also get the convenience of context menus?Three years ago, that was the biggest annoyance for me while sitting at my sister's mac.
Short and post your trade big shot. Only takes a second.
Makes it easier to manipulate....dude. Get with the program.
I like that. Good one.
its ridiculous how a company mainly producing "toys" is so highly valued.
What company doesnt produce toys?
GM... there you have it....
Right wrong or indifferent, Apple is making crap that somebody wants. Key words "making" and "wants". In an economy based entirely on buying and selling and services it is somewhat reassuring that at least a company that makes crap people want is doing well. Apple is the modern GM or US Steel I suppose.
Now, the larger issue of people buying electronic soma and playing angry birds while civilization crumbles...there you have a point.
+1 Excellent post
I agree with Ricky; +1. People are buying this stuff. Toys or not.
LOL on the angry birds.
The key issue here is "want" versus "need." Guess what takes a backseat the moment money gets funny. You cant eat an iThingie. So, 75% founded on something other than consumer staples. Yeah, feels like a stable market to me. Ha, ha.
all companies try to produce the same end product; cash. the tools they use to generate the cash may differ...ipads, cars, houses, toothpaste,...but the end goal of virtually every company is the same...CASH!
Steve Jobs first he screws his partner out of his part of the bus. now its= Beyond greed, You would think that this close to death he would perhaps drop the prices on his products for the consumer.
makes so much sense....
let's hope the life cycle of the Iphone and Ipad never end....
steve jobs for a "life"time appointment may be a very short time.
This said the day after Apple symbolically killed the PC market (see HP).
Have a friend working for HP. She is in shock at the moment.
maybe that has more to do with her nite life than her day life. Never can tell when a chick gets her ground swell.
Did someone leak the details of QE3?
Boycott Apple! Bad losers! Buy Samsung!
Just think how much they can generate if they lever that cash up 40x. It's all the rage,everybody is doing it.
Typo I meant 40x
Samsung = SHAMSOMEONE
worst products I have ever I had. I will never buy another SS product
All I have to write in response to the headline - not because I doubt it, but because it clearly indicates what terrible roles Central Bankers/Planners play in bringing down the global economy - is:
Jobs would certainly do a better job than the Bernank as Chairman at the Fed. Apple is a real technology company, they invent new things people want, they set trends. Dell has always been called a tech company which is a joke. They are a manufacturer of tech products, nothing innovative, but don't really invent much of anything.
Apple sells confidence.
Yeah I have my mortgage at Apple! They give better deals!
Yes, they will become a bank (if not already) and be forced to borrow money from the Fed to protect . . . Altair!
I actually think its a good sign. It shows you who is a real business, who is just bullshit.
Whatever you feel about Apple, the fact is that... Apple makes stuff people wants. Banks? Just figments of numbers. They're worthless these days.
Buy Gold. Buy Silver. Buy oil. Buy iPhones or iPads. These shit will do you well versus stupid fiat or bonds or whatever pushed around by banksters.
The biggest company is a toy maker and not an arms maker ? Isn't that everything the liberal twits have been wetting their beds for forever ? Monedas 2011 You can't win with sick minds......even when you give 'em what they want !
The iCoin is coming...in black and white...I can imagine the design...Steve on one side, the Apple on the back..snap them in the iWallet, available in seven trendy colors.
Not the worst of ideas, actually. Unlike a lot of other currencies, it would at least be backed by something.
You realize that APPL is now another TBTF
We must admit that the Ipad really improves our lives....
When you sit in your garden, you can check the weather report so you don't have to look up anymore.
We can go out and chat with other people besides the once sitting next to us.
We can play arcade style games with it.
I can't imagine not having one anymore today....
