Motley Fool's "The Tragedy of Apple" is a perfect example of modern financial reporting. The same worn out memes strung together in a vacuous diatribe whose sole purpose seems to be to collect clicks. An article like this has to stand on one of two things. Either it presents new data or it expresses the opinion of someone so trusted and credible that we accept their authority. There is nothing remotely new about any part of this article. As to the author's credibility, he is a member of CAPS, the Motley Fool's crowd based program that allows users to compete in choosing and timing stocks. He is currently number 64948 of 69584. Nice headline though.
I like the idea of video subscriptions. Too bad Apple did not start it 7 years ago. I am not confident it will generate the revenue and profit she is expecting in that time frame. Netflix and Amazon are well established and Apple would have to offer an amazing deal for folks to cut those cords.
Remember it's important to pay attention to FUD, even if you're not trading it can provide an idea as to where the 'players' would like to see AAPL go.
Disagree entirely. FUD is primarily created by hacks who can’t do anything of real value. So they resort to writing complete crap for page hits. Have a look at the qualifications of the clown show that passes for journalism. This is one of the downsides of the web. You get paid for writing total garbage, as long as it generates page hits. So the world is swamped with charlatons and incompetent liars. And a whole bunch of them flock to Apple, since they are the biggest story in business.
Real players with real money think for themselves, and are not led by a pack of hacks.
EDIT - and one more thing. If I had listened to the so called players, every time they unanimously called Apple doomed and washed up, I would have sold everything ages ago. And missed a life changing investment.
“So focused on shareholder value, companies, rather than investing in ways to make their businesses more resilient or their workers more productive, have been dedicating ever larger shares of their profits to dividends and corporate share repurchases. When a company purchases its own stock back, it reduces the number of publicly traded shares, boosting the value of the stock to the benefit of shareholders and corporate leadership.”
Oh noes, corporations looking out for its shareholders! Can’t have that when we can redistribute that wealth to healthcare for illegal aliens and other Democrat votes!
Can’t wait to see the libs here spin this one. Bernie could easily be the nominee in 2020 BTW.
Other people’s money!

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
