Samsung Catches Fire While Apple Sales Disappoint

Apple may not have their phones burning up, but they have other problems, such as disappointing sales of the iPhone 7, so poor that for the first time, they didn’t even release first week sales.

At Dohmen Capital Research, we see that Apple’s US Mac sales are also plunging, down 13.2% from one year ago. This is not a big part of total Apple sales, but it adds up when all the other “great hopes,” such as the Apple Watch, Apple Pay, Apple TV, etc. have fizzled.

Is the Inevitable Debt Collapse Predictable?

The national debt is accelerating at a geometric rate. But no one in Washington seems to notice. “Geometric” rate means it is accelerating exponentially.

Have you noticed that current members of Congress never mention the horrendous explosion in the nation’s debt? Apparently, they hope that Americans won’t notice what they have done to our economic future.

Why Is There A Shortage Of iPhone 7?

When Apple management announced that the iPhone 7 was sold out, the stock soared about 14%. That’s an increase in market value of over $80 billion. We call that a windfall from a shortfall.

We were skeptical. We consider the reception of iPhone 7 lukewarm, certainly not enough for demand to soar above expectations.

However, there probably is a real shortage at the moment. But instead of being caused by big demand, couldn’t it be due to a lack of supply?

Why The Next Two Years Could Be Worse Than 2008

On December 16, the Fed hiked interest rates by 0.25% as widely expected. The majority of analysts had predicted that because almost every Fed official coming into the media had made the case for a hike for several months.

In other words, the members of the FOMC had made up their minds, no matter what the facts were.

I wrote in our award-winning Wellington Letter that a hike would lead to a severe reduction of liquidity, and thus a strong market plunge in 2016.

Are You Still Holding APPLE?

Apple’s results this week were absolutely dismal. Finally all the negatives that global market authority, Bert Dohmen, has warned about for the past 18 months are being recognized.

After forecasting its first revenue drop in 13 years, along with its slowest ever growth in iPhone sales,

2016 Will Be a Great Year… For the Bears

Have you ever noticed that stocks decline much faster than they rise? That means big profits for those who know how participate on the short side of the market.

We have warned about the stock of Apple throughout 2015. Bert Dohmen’s latest article on Forbes.com, from mid-December was headlined: “Why Apple Will Enter A Bear Market In 2016.”

Why Apple Will Enter A Bear Market In 2016

Apple is the darling of many investors. The expectation is that the company can do no wrong. Such unrealistic expectations are always shattered. It’s just a matter of time.

Hedge Funds loved Apple. Carl Icahn bought over 53 million shares, and the Apple ‘groupies’ on the internet insult everyone who pointed out the future negatives with four letter words instead of facts.

Why Apple Is “Dead Money”… At Best

The charts usually tell the story much better than words or opinions based on emotions. And what does the Apple chart tell us? It is heading down…seriously.

Apple is the benchmark for some of the popular stock indices. Because it is the highest capitalization stock in the indices, it carries the greatest weight. Therefore, when the stock can no longer be supported because of big selling pressure, it is bearish for the stock market.

The chart below shows a long sideways pattern since February 2015. That support has now been broken.

Will The Apple Watch Flop?

The Apple Watch, formerly known as the “iWatch,” made its debut last week. TV reporters were at Apple stores hoping to report on the assumed big crowds. But there weren’t any. It was a strange “launch” because people couldn’t get the watch, just place an order online.

What to do when there is no crowd? Interview the CEO, Tim Cook. He was all excited about the congratulatory phone calls he received from around the world. He didn’t say how many watches he sold on those calls.
