Again, stay away from the stock market unless you have a company 401K. You don't understand margins, earnings projections, and would be dumbfounded by quarterly reports.
If what you say was true, people would have come to understand that years ago. I'm starting to think a large percentage of customers just like taking it up the ass, and as long as they stick around so will companies like Apple.Apple already is failing from a consumer trust standpoint. They keep making poor design decisions that hurt their brand and don't add value to their products. People will gradually wise up to the obscene profit margins Apple makes on style without substance.
I think about it from time to time. Apple's failure almost happened a few times back in the 90's before it's potential was cemented ..But as Apple is now; probably the most successful company in history, is it still possible for Apple to realistically fail in this generation?
I saw this today
Quit while you're behind, son. It's only going to get worse.This thread's subject was never about the stock market. It was about the possibility if Apple could fail or not.
No.This was all happening during the late 80's and early 90's. By the early nineties IBM was basically dead in the computer world and Compaq their bastard son soon followed under the disastrous leadership of Carly Fiorina. Who while as the CEO of Compaq, secured a position at HP as the CEO, had HP purchase Compaq to save her board and herself tons of cash, dissolved Compaq, and in the process nearly sank HP. HP is still hemorrhaging cash from that deal. Love her anti-drug stance tho.
I could list dozens of problems but the bottom line is large companies aren't buying expensive network hardware anymore now that cloud computing is a thing, and Cisco is having a hard time adapting. They seem to change direction every year.Capellas is a board member.
His resume is nothing but him presiding over companies which are bought out.
