Hmm, What Is Apple Doing?


#563

Dropped my SE a few times on concrete garage floor… screen intact, slight scratch on the side… no screen protector.


#564

But guys, the X is double glass sides. We are talking different ballgame altogether…


#565

Apple care+. Another revenue stream! :money_mouth_face:


#566

Think like an entrepreneur, every problem is a money making opportunity :grinning: instead of OMG, we have a situation :rofl:


#567

My boss told me he used to work on a team where a guy couldn’t influence his boss on the products they should carry for that segment. He got so frustrated he started his own business selling items his boss rejected as FBA. It didnt take long before he quit his job, becuase he was making way more money selling items FBA. I’m not sure what happened to the boss who clearly wasn’t that good at decision making.


#568

UBNT founder? FBA = Fulfillment by Amazon?


#569

Fulfillment by Amazon.

The idea of lining your pockets with even more money AFTER already paying for the freaking expensive phone is not appealing…

Bring these back!!!

OMG… let’s bring back those pieces of “brick”… I bet you can smash someone’s head with that… :rofl:


#572

Hey, Tim, release 3 versions of these bad boys at once…

As expected, the Iphone 8 has become Cinderella’s ugly sisters…

Blue-shirted Apple employees milled around the makeshift store, ensuring everyone’s order was being fulfilled as quickly as possible. Members of the press, and more senior Apple employees looked down on the organized chaos from above. New York City police officers and private security guards hired by Apple guarded the doors and the lines outside. The police had put up bollards. Very few people seemed to be touching the iPhone 8 displays.

As of yesterday’s close, market cap of AAPL = $891B
Since 2012, Apple has returned $211B to shareholders.
Has Apple didn’t do so, current market cap should be $891B+$211B = $1.1T :rofl:
Has Apple didn’t split 7 for 1 few years ago, share price should be $172.50 x 7 = $1208 :rofl::rofl:

xxxxxxxx…AAPL…xxFB…AMZN…GOOG…NVDA
xxxxxxP/S…3.99…15.66…x3.57…xx7.26…x15.01
P/E(fwd)…15.44…27.36…138.60…25.01…x51.91

Compare with other mega cap stocks, valuation of AAPL is the lowest because WS deems Apple as a hardware manufacturing business.

aapl is solid. Cash cow never fails to impress. I’m laughing all the way to the bank every time they deliver those fat dividends… :rofl:


#578

Who else laugh? Austin laughs because I spent those dividends buying rental SFHs there. I guess you don’t feel the need to diversify yet, for me, too exposed to SFBA (Primary, 1 rental, AAPLs), so put some in Austin seems like a good idea, of course, retaining my ex-primary in Singapore for post-retirement.

P/S of 3.99 is fairly reasonable.

I think I might want to diversify back to China… everyone is saying that’s where the future lies… perception is reality… :rofl:


#580

I have thought of investing in China when it started opening up… no money, no contacts… now no contact…

30 years of river west (Europe, America), 30 years of river east (China, India).
That’s how the prosperity go… east-west-east-west… now is east again.


#581

China definitely… can’t say the same about India… :rofl:
