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.

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

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.

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?

Apple— What’s For An Encore?

My last article on this much loved firm was written on Forbes.com before the announcement of the new products on Sept. 9, 2014. That article discusses the contracting financial metrics of Apple. In the article below I discuss the newly announced products. Here are my impression. Some readers may disagree but these are my opinions, not based on emotions, but on facts and observations:

Over the next several weeks, investors will hear a lot about soaring Iphone sales, the wonders of Apple technology, the Apple watch next year, Apple Pay, etc.
