Default iBubble ... AMAZING !!!

iBubble: Apple's Market Cap Is Now The Same As The Entire Retail Sector, Bigger Than All The Semis



This is simply stunning: one company, which has two flagship products, has a bigger market cap than the entire Semiconductor space, and is just shy of the entire S&P Retail sector.

Aaple, Google and IBM would have a market cap of 1 trillion,
at that time the 3 companys had a market cap around 200 Billion...

If you can search the post here back to when the iPhone was initially released, you'll find a post by me saying it was a piece of meaningless shit but it is the next product following the iPhone that was going to do it for iApple. You know that as the iPad.

Ah ... the power of the crystal ball.

Before too long it should become a reasonable short position.

SO at what price did you get in and what price should we get out?

It sure would be scary shorting such a successful company. Homebuilders, a few years after Barney Fwank got his agenda passed and the irrational exuberance that followed, now that was an easy short.

Full disclosure I bought and sold Apple twice, both times making a nice 20-40% return. last sell was at 35 if I recall. Never be afraid to take profits but damn I missed on that one!

It was funny last week at the shareholder's meeting someone asked Cook (the new CEO) about the "D" word (dividends), Cook said iApple had more than enough cash on hand to do the company's business, implying dividends were a possibility. iApple's stock immediately drop $10 -- it was caused by news scouring robots that picked up on key words and automatically dumped appl. Oops.

I thought iApple was dedicated to staying out of the game market because it is already so heavily saturated? The iPod, iPhone and iPad were all new products in new markets that iApple created. That is iApple created the demand for those products where there was no competition.

The article mentions the iMac is only 10% of the PC market and has room to grow. I would disagree. iApple's computing products never get above 10 to 11% of the market share. That is not where iApple future grow is unless they pull out an entirely new and completely redesigned piece of hardware that is so unique as to yield everything before it immediately obsolete.

Per FCC filings, iApple's business model is to flood new markets with new products as fast as possible before the competition can get into the market and take it over. iApple's strength is marketing -- creating those new markets that didn't exist before iApple decided they would.

True, but I ain't stepping in front of that train. Wait for the break which may come here, at $700 or $1100.

Sooooooo, are you smarter than a 5th grader. This is the USA you know. If you don't think that will get some heavy hitters attention you just stay long.
