WHY? B OF A SAID APPLE SHARES WILL SOAR …WHY?
I said Apple shares are a pause moment. After saying they would be well over $ 200 a share by March. What is my thought and B of A’s thought to the market driver stock.
We all know smarty pants attorneys have positioned Apple when Steve Jobs was the BOSS such that tax haven IP siting in Ireland ( Microsoft does the same thing ) results in Apple holding over 200 billion in tax free cash reserves in the EU. This money can not come back to the USA under present Congress stupid laws without huge taxes.
The new Tax Reform Act will punch Apple Valuation to the moon and investors will factor in the new TAX FACTS to multiples of Apple creating a soaring stock value. At least that is what BofA said TODAY.
I said pause because Apple is in crises which the media has yet to slam home but they will. The crises includes:
- The horrific botch at the KEYNOTE with 1 billion watching when the face recognition would not work and they had to use another phone. Rehearsal would have precluded that but the lack of quality control on the most important event of the years speaks to Management and system controls that are not LESS than Apple standards. The problem is MANAGEMENT.
- Then Apple releases I0S 1.0.01 – the worst IOS operating system filled with so many bugs that are impacting user experience to the mud floor – that it is simply the worst quality control break down effecting tens of millions of users – in ten years. The WORST management obvious breach of Apple quality control in a decade. The problem is MANAGEMENT.
- Then Apple has IPHONE 8 they just released less than one month ago – just a few weeks – and the IPHONE 8’s are destroyed by BATTERY SWELLING FLAWS in hardware quality control – the batteries swell and DESTROY the new IPHONE 8 – users see the phone is bent in two – cracked open and unusable – and it is DANGEROUS. Batteries swell that fast and that much before they explore or burst into fires. See Samsung. This quality control break down is a MANAGEMENT SYSTEM PROBLEM and the issue is again MANAGEMENT.
- Product flaws like their MAC BOOK PRO Screen leaks glue that destroys the screen. Then you repair the screen with a new Chinese screen that is not fixed and also leaks Glue – I’m on number TWO myself. They say they are aware and looking into it – must be a robot that put that phrase out.
- They have additional quality control problems ask any apple tech on software to hardware issues in the worst year 2017 for quality breach on hardware and software in Apple history ever.
Apple said to these horrific issues – we are aware and we are looking into it. In the past Apple always….. TOOK RESPONSIBILITY apologized to users – and they moved to rapidly fix the issue. They were responsible no buck passing and they were transparent in what action they were taking. Not any more. THAT IS THE BRAND CRISES management has made errors in changing course upon. IN my OPINION Apple world.
We are aware and we are looking into it….is MANAGEMENT SHIFT and is core to future results. it is potentially BRAND SLAUGHTER see David Corbin’s ( CEO SPACE FACULTY ) book on this topic.
Apple in this month of October is in PURE CRISES MODE. They are trying to manipulate media so the crises of their brand slaughter does not get reported as a crises at all. Ah that would be lying. World wide. As they have not opened orders for their X said TEN. IPHONE 10. They call X. ( Another mind blower of management in iPhone world )
Personally I assume the delay in IPHONE 10 at holiday profit time is not be desire but is to put out FIRES. I can’t imagine the flaws in the IPHONE X but I assume given the complexity of a first run they are greater than the battery swelling of the IPHONE 8. Now if you add all this up – you have a company of department heads in utter and pure crises rolling into Christmas and 80% of their profit and buying. Are you starting to see the APPLE CRISES or still looking through old glasses?
So Management. IS the CRISES. They failed on systems and quality control and they failed on response. We are aware and we are looking into it. ( Dangerous battery swelling so fast in hours the entire phone is bent broke open and destroyed ). ARE YOU KIDDING ME APPLE MANAGEMENT That is your response?
Say the word no one can say.
TIM. The problem is the Board and TIM.
At some point the investors are going to be on to the reality Apple is in a crises. Their head of Cloud their essential service group just left. A departure of key department heads crucial to Apple leadership have left in the last 24 months and the deportees picked up speed in the past 12 months. Why? Management folks. A lack of confidence in Tim. A lack of reliance on culture that is now core changing at Apple.
Apple is in Crises Folks. It may take awhile before the market and the press pick up on this. You remember that you heard it all here.
Stock price. I am an owner.
I think the stock price will be over $ 200 by March. I think the CRISES could change that and I’m watching. How many more wheel wobbles will we see from MANAGEMENT that has lost the confidence of its own circles and peoples, has altered the switched on turned on work space culture, has been unable to control quality where it counts most on their software main product and on their hard ware main product. In most firms with this level of multiple quality control crises the CEO is replaced.
So I’m saying you are going to see major events in Apple Management until this CRISES – they are AWARE OF AND LOOKING INTO is fixed.
I suspect the Press will rise this up to Trump Tweet Level soon and you will see APPLE IN CRISES all over the news. Where there is one to two dozen flaws so serious the IPHONE 8 is Destroyed by dangerous battery swelling due to Chinese Quality issues – along with say the screen on MAC BOOK PRO most expensive models leaks glue onto the screen due to shoddy Chinese quality – where the screen is DESTORYED and must be replaced. I know I’ve done it – they told me at the Apple Store – we are AWARE and we are looking in to it.
But the new screen leaked glue and my second screen is destroyed while they look into it.
When does this become a user CRISES issue for Apple as their famous quality sinks into battery swelling that is all over their new release in first days only destroying the phone.
Why is APPLE IN CRISES not Front Page news in the Wall Street Journal versus Bank of America suggesting BUY APPLE as a PR SPIN. Distraction to the real issue – crises and shareholder right to know and understand a bit more than WE ARE AWARE AND LOOKING INTO “IT”.
There is a growing list of CRISES IT lists and it all comes down to SHATTERED QUALITY CONTROl which folks SHATTERS BRAND CONFIDENCE.
See Samsung. Their CEO who did the exploding batteries is in prison.
So I’m suggesting the PRESS begin to shine illumination on the elephant in the building. The lead stock driving the entire market is in serious CRISES FOLKS.
My readers ( press ) Hedge Funds and Private Equity are pretty smart cookies and I think as an economist investment banker they will think like this blog reports and be all over that we ARE aware and looking into it is such bullshit that they will dive in deep water on the real APPLE CRISES – Management – Quality Control break down across the product lines – and shattering brand confidence – and what next – and yes TIM.
So this is not going away.
This IS going to get worse. A lot worse. I did not create this fact set. I just report it so you know the truth from what is spin in the market. With 200 Billion in cash you can put out a lot of spin with big players.
I”m stating the truth. APPLE Is in panic crises mode running on the hamster tread mill like they were on meth.
Berny Dohrmann – Apple has some rot that needs to be cut out
WILL “YOU” BE “MY” VALENTINE?
Happy Valentine’s Day to all my LADY LEADER READERS Feb 14th worldwide.
Last year I told encouraged everyone to explore diversified insurance investing and to sell out of STOCKS AND BONDS before the inevitable CORRECTION and CRASH occurs in the over priced casino markets of today. I did post ONE EXCEPTION.
At the time, last year, I told my readers BUY APPLE STOCK. What was going on in that stock at the time?
The experts all reported Apple’s time had come and Apple’s time had gone. The expert’s cited manipulative and speculative details as to why. All conjecture.
I relied on DATA. What did I report?
I reported that:
- 2016 would end as a record year in IPHONE SALES. The experts reported iPhone sales had peaked and would never reach their former profit levels. In fact, in 2017 they EXCEEDED THEM and by a HUGE MARGIN. How WRONG were the experts? Worldwide? Crammer included? PIE IN YOUR FACE WRONG – PIE IN YOUR FACE.
- I reported all other Apple product categories would explode in profits from IPOD to IWATCH and service subscriptions. Each and EVERY category exceeded ( by far the ) estimates provided by the stupid wrong experts in the media.
- Reported 2017 the anniversary year for IPHONE would be the most innovative, upgrading and explosive sale year in history for Apple. I noted Apple would continue to set the BAR for technology directions for the world.
I suggested my readers buy Apple stock at their floor valley – their lowest bargain price in as a buying OPPORTUNITY – I reported over and over again – buy as much as you can until Apple 2016 earnings report in 2017 and watch the SURGE the absolute SURGE In price and profits to YOUR ACCOUNT.
So today for readers who PAY ATTENTION to such information – we have the ALL TIME RECORD HIGH STOCK PRICE FOR APPLE after the all time low by media bashing which economically speaking was a MANIPULATION OF PRICE which I believe is a new regulatory issue – media manipulates price so their advertising family can profit from those manipulations which require an AUDIT over the time period. The biggest RE-THINK of regulatory tools and tactics is required to upgrade regulation to manage criminal speculation. Hank paying a 9 million dollar fine in New York is an example of CRIME PAYS and AIG walks clean from legal THEFT ( in my opinion ). And the taxpayers take it in the ( well not where the sun shines ).
So Valentine Lady’s – if you bought APPLE STOCK before the all-time record high – don’t thank me just buy SHOES. You so deserve it.
Berny Dohrmann – Sending your all Rainbow’s and Moonbeams on Valentines DAY
PS: My highest global praise for the APPLE TEAM worldwide you so deserve your leadership roles. You ARE # 1 and # 2 is just so FAR BEHIND YOUR IP and INVENTIVE LEADERSHIP in 2017 and 2018 – you make my buddy Steve more than proud.
I’VE BEEN IN PRISON AND APPLE HAS NOT……..
You know as Chairman of the largest Entrepreneur Institution in the world today, ranked # 1 by Forbes after 30 years of continuous service to Apple Buyers – and endorsing Apple as our highest endorsement for business productivity – we find ourselves at odds.
Yes we are constitutional people. Yes we believe in rights to privacy to the extreme protection of individuals.
But really – the rule of LAW has always INCLUDED the right for our legal institutions to obtain with appropriate evidence, a SEARCH ORDER of all evidence a criminal suspect may possess. Law enforcement could with such court ordered documents search a suspected criminal’s office home and private things in storage anywhere for evidence of the crime. It was always up to LAW ENFORCEMENT to get the evidence which the criminal could hide or destroy. A tough game at best for very smart insane minds who commit crimes against all of us.
The highest of these crimes is indiscriminate murder by a committed solider in a war against innocent civilians. Nothing comes before shooting children mothers and grandmothers. Nothing.
Today the evidence is digital. Protecting the innocent’s privacy is and should remain an absolute. To suggest the terrorist murder has ANY RIGHTS is to ourselves become insane. To search the digital shelf space for EVIDENCE from a known TERRORIST SOLDIER is to protect all of us from the next attack against us. TIME IS A KEY FACTOR as very smart criminals will destroy evidence.
Folks. Time is important here.
Terrorists who commit crimes against civilians lose their RIGHTS including their right to any privacy. They are war crimes. They are war CRIMINALS. Any one individual or corporation who helps a WAR CRIMINAL is a conspirator in the war against all of us. When Donald Trump says you should buy other products and take the profit out of protecting criminals – he is right.
Today Tim’s actions have been good for a slagging business without the innovation of Steve Jobs. ( See the movie ). Today all the criminals are moving from Android to Apple. Everyone wants the company who will block US and that means all of us in the form of the United States of America – that is all of us and must always be all of us.
Today folks, the talk about YOUR PRIVACY is silly. Have you committed a crime? The nation lacks resources to track and monitor a fraction of the criminals let alone all of us. Get real. It is not possible nor will it be possible nor is it a concern. Plus why?
The nation, YOUR NATION, wants a single RIGHT to search for files – ( evidence ) as they have for 400 years – only the evidence is digital files versus on shelf files – and they want that right in cases of MASS MURDER BY TERRORIST and SUSPECTED TERRORIST to track down enemies of our nation – all of us – and help to keep our babies safe in the USA.
Tim is blocking that legitimate court order. To complex takes 72 hours in a one off software they can keep in an apple safe – or they can – place into delete themselves till next time. Really. Whats the issue.
The government in a criminal contempt of court order will put those denying the rule of law into Jail for denying it. Tim will not do well in prison. I’m here to caution him.
His logic is misguided. Digital shelf space is no different than a criminals closet. Terrorist lose the right to digital protection. Congress needs to RUSH a LAW that indicates crimes against the state loose all rights to digital protection and it is a crime to deny law enforcement “rights” to secure their digital evidence and harvest digital files from their various devices. Period.
The courts need to uphold the right of law enforcement to harvest evidence files on digital shelf space, as a massive need in that all criminal evidence is moving to digital shelf space – for law enforcement to get evidence within rules Congress defines to protect the innocent. We can have both folks.
Taking the phone of the MURDERERS with all that evidence of who they communicated with by text and by email and by phone directly – and having that new evidence to preclude future attacks on us and to cement their case for the USA ( all of us ) is why we have law enforcement. Law Enforcement are not our ENEMY and I’m a person wrongly put into prison – the innocent will get caught up in IT on occasion folks – it happens. I know I’ve seen it and I’ve been one. But its rare VERY RARE. It is unlikely your prosecutor was your BEST FRIEND since age four years old. That is personal not law enforcement. Judges are supposed to protect us from abuse. But when you have THREE JUDGES in one case you get off track. SHIFT happens.
I want privacy. If I’m an accused terrorist they can have my phone. There is no evidence on my phone. I don’t care what they look at on MY PHONE because I’m a very good citizen of this land Iove called AMERICA. I hope I’m a leader that deserves the title.
I try to earn the title of hero for others each and every new dawn. You work at your own legacy.
In this nation the nation of terror is laughing at us. We won’t water board. They behead their mothers. We won’t open a cell phone. They torture young boys and girls to death with pipes and coals.
Insanity is a place. Hitler was insane. All bullies who become leaders are insane. The only rule of law is not religious law – it is their dictator law that is the rule of FEAR AND PUNISHMENT the highest form of insanity known as COMPETITION. In this case following the idea of the MASTER RACE we have the hatred and insanity of the MASTER FAITH.
Our law enforcement must be able to search and secure digital evidence in an age when all the file evidence has moved from the closest and basement to the digital device. Like DUHHH? Otherwise law enforcement can keep us private and they will never keep us SAFE again.
Its your call America. All arguments protecting the insane – are insane. In my opinion.
I opt for the courts to return sanity to the RULE OF LAW.
PS: I’m saving some commissary for TIM. Tim when your wrong – your all the way wrong – its Apple Vs. The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ( thats all of us folks ) . Digital files are just files and criminals loose their right to privacy when a court says so by order.
