Analyze This.

November 22nd, 2014 · No Comments · General Detritus

I’ve just been over to NASDAQ.com to look at what the analysts think of AAPL. It reaffirmed my faith in analysts being less reliable than weathermen.

So anyway, Apple had an event last week. They introduced a 27″ 5k iMac. Once upon a time a 25″ NTSC Television was the centerpiece of the well-appointed American living room. I grew up in that era. My dear old Dad was a TV Repairman in those days. I’m here to promise you that you […]
