MacDailyNews Take: Dear Alice, is it really made of cheese?


    1. AAPL hit records under the previous administration despite Cook’s pivot away from products and into subscription services & disposable consumer products. Probably would have done even better if Apple could walk and chew gum at once.

      Were you asleep then?

      1. How do you know I did not buy 10 shares of Apple at the company’s IPO price of $22 per share, on December 12, 1980. Hmmm?

        Answer: you don’t! Clueless OPINION does not translate to reality, thank God.

        I bought my first Apple computer two years later, my lady Lisa.

        As to the rest of your smug childish insult post, I honor Botty who was a good friend by quoting his most famous line.

        “I am immune from sophistry”…

          1. Too low a bet, Sonny. Besides, obviously you can’t take the hint.

            Pay close ATTENTION. It’s NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, got it?

            My friend Botty second most famous line.


    2. Who in his right mind declares the economy to be controlled by the president??? Only you and the current braggart POTUS, when convenient. But then, you would have to believe in a free market — free of executive influence! — to believe otherwise. It is fascism when a strongman authoritarian intervenes in the market whenever he declares it “necessary”. Your hero thinks he has the right to interfere with free enterprise with no limits, completely against the former Republican platform.

      Just like his never-completed peace agreements, it’s obvious he doesn’t have any workable long-term economic plan either. Ballooning deficits as far as the CBO can see. If you think the policies implemented by the latest head of state have dramatically improved any economic trends, I invite you to show us the sudden knee on the curves.

      What? You have no data to support your position? Typical. But fine, I’ll show you the error of your ways. For simplification, let’s look at the segment of the economy that has BY FAR benefitted the most from Trumpian policies: the good old boys club S&P500.

      Based on actions, not words, multinational corporate profits are much more important to Fat T than the working class that strings along multiple jobs to make ends meet. Look at the trendline below. Obama economy, after 5-6 years in office, the S&P500 chugged steadily upward with a nice stable trajectory. Elsewhere we can debate the wisdom of bailing out banks and major US corporations, but that was started in 2008 and was supported on both sides of the aisle. Government stimulus toward the guys who created the problem wasn’t my preferred path, but it is what it is. The markets were stabilised and after the snap-back of 2009, the growth rate from 2010 on averaged above population growth, steadily onwards. In fact, 2014 was a banner year. S&P hit dozens of all-time records, as did AAPL.

      Then the election season hit, and the mud slingers riled up the fear and doubt. 2-4% average growth was simply not acceptable, this Orange Spray guy claimed that “6 or 8 percent or higher” GDP growth was possible, and only he could do it. The opponent, who was in D.C. in one capacity or another throughout the most productive economic booms in the last 30 years, was painted as a death mask to the markets. The misinformation (much of it foreign) took hold. The markets since 2015 have been more volatile, unfortunately mirroring the unstable musings of tweety-in-chief. One day he’s demanding yet more stimulus from the Fed, the next he’s advocating boycotts of US companies that import too much stuff. The sugar high of the slashed corporate tax rates, the continued Fed rate easing, were offset by things in the executive control (such as his cut-off-nose-to-spite-face tariff and trade policy) as well as those not (Covid-19). MOREOVER, the 2019 stock surge as major multinationals buy back their own stocks doesn’t display strong overall economic growth — if you look, the average trend remains weak — last year’s stock surge backstopped the losses from the sharp Dec 2018 market downturn. Look for yourself.

      It is plainly obvious to any objective person that the S&P 500 is faring no better under Stable Debt Genius than his predecessor. Orange Liar took a steadily growing economy and churned it — the average growth still stays about the same. What is different is that massive debt is accumulating, the pittance of tax cuts to the working classes is a joke, and the billionaires keep hoarding the easy cash. NOT A HEALTHY ECONOMIC PLAN.

      So please spare us the hyper-partisan BS. The markets are going to do what they are going to do as money sloshes back and forth. Right now US blue chips are flush with cash, and that attracts worldwide investors looking for a safe haven. But at some point irrational money follows the good; the balloon will pop. What are you going to say if it pops in the next year or two? You going to blame Obama or Hillary for that?

  1. At the end of the day — every day — I, and many of the other posters on this thread, own shares of Apple stock, and you do not. We like to celebrate when things go well for our favorite company. We get it, you like the guy, and you’re not going to let facts get in the way of your hero worship. That’s the squalor you live in, and you’re welcome to it. Say whatever you want on other threads, but you have absolutely nothing to contribute to this one. You never have, and it’s obvious you never will.

    1. Read I brought out the self righteous elitist indignation in you, good let’s party.

      “At the end of the day — every day — I, and many of the other posters on this thread”

      Many posters assume falsely, state they have have facts when they have none (that would be YOU), confuse opinion with facts and outright LIE — again, that would be YOU.

      “own shares of Apple stock, and you do not.”

      Look blockhead with a reading comprehension problem I told you once and tell you again, you do not have any facts what stocks I own or don’t own and it’s none of your business. Read for the third time: NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

      To all the posters here that BRAG about holding Apple stock, MAG7 gold star example, is in extremely poor taste IMHO. It’s like a billionaire in a bar bragging to the unemployed and welfare recipients how rich he or she is. Goes over as well as a fart in church. That said, everyone enjoy your gains in the stock market and I’ll enjoy mine. 👍🏻

      For the record: my original post was about record gains in the stock market overall while Trump is in office, not about record Apple gains.

      “That’s the squalor you live in”

      You don’t know a thing about how I live and throwing out pejoratives with no basis in facts is a pitiful ploy. You also have no idea how many of my best friends own mansions in Martha’s Vineyard, Washington D.C, Main Line, PA, Eden Prairie, MN and ranches in Montana. I’ve stayed at EVERY one. I have to thank the maker they allow squalor into their homes. 🖕🏼🤣

      “Say whatever you want on other threads, but you have absolutely nothing to contribute to this one. You never have, and it’s obvious you never will.”

      First off, who the f*ck are you to tell me what to do? From the idiocy I read in your SMUG posts, you have NOTHING to contribute here beyond LYING and bragging about Apple stock. Lastly, only idiots speak in ABSOLUTES, congrats!…

  2. Oh, looks like I hit a nerve. Personally, I don’t care what stocks you own or don’t own. Makes no difference to my life. Maybe all the embarrassment you’re suffering here will motivate you to go out and buy some Apple stock some day. Really, I think your life will be the better for it. Your rich friends might even be willing to lend you some money to do that. You could pay them back with your profits. Give it a try. You’d not only gain some good assets, but — maybe — a little bit of dignity, too.

  3. Shall we keep going until the next Apple high? It could be a while … Meanwhile, it’s not I who have nothing, it’s you — when it comes to shares of Apple stock.

    1. Don’t waste your time. Goeb has demonstrated for a long time that, as a political hack and paid troll, his only joy is to score points for his tribe.

      Many others have brought facts to bear but Goeb doesn’t look at anything that doesn’t align with his prejudices. He doesn’t have any true knowledge of anyone or anything, and he doesn’t care to know. If it costs Goeb a dime or an iota of effort and benefits anyone else outside his little tent, he’s religiously against it. Now watch as he returns with a virulent attempt at personal attack, applying an enemy label to you and me, never a moment of circumspection from him. Harsh truth sometimes needs to be stated without a sugar coating.

  4. Yeah, I know. But he’s harmless. I’ve been reading MDN for 15 years or so, and mostly I sit back and shake my head at these blowhard political (and social) naifs. Don’t know why I got a little more active lately. But he hangs around here so much, he really ought to buy some Apple shares. Maybe then he wouldn’t be so angry all the time. (I’m a little surprised that anyone other than him and me has read this far down the thread. There’s nothing of value being said.) Do you think his responding to my ripostes and his obsession with having the last word [even if that word (as it so often is) is “f*ck off” (in all caps, of course — see above)] is keeping him from soiling other threads? Nah, probably not.
