As I watch the nationally televised ad of Apple Pay and Master card shown on the World Series, and the initial millions of transactions already done by customers using APPLE PAY, it appears that APPLE and Walgreen's (who is using Apple Pay) will eat CVS and Rite-aid for lunch. CVS is going to be eaten alive.
Jim Crammer is claiming to be the first to state this but I've been telling you ever since AAPL announced the beginning of APPLE PAY that this product will be greater than the combined sale…

***** written at 10 am CST , please see my comment regarding the AAPL scorecard base price. thanks again.
Business Insider has written an excellent article in regarding why CVS and Rite pulled the plug on Apple Pay. It was for contractual reasons. It had an exclusive contract with a forthcoming competitor. The nice thing is these companies can leave t…
TSLA up huge today on reported record worldwide sales.
Big news for the day is the hinted partnership by AAPL (Apple) and BABA (Alibaba), which happens to be two stocks I own in my Catching Fire portfolio. At the moment of this writing, BABA is up another 2.5% today and AAPL up almost another 1% !

....much buzz and discussion in the market media regarding CVS and Rite rejection of Apple Pay. I need to see what fallout happens in the next few days but my immediate 'thought' is that CVS and Rite had to do that due to contractual reasons with a competitive product in the works that they are a partner with.
My thing I read is that the competitive product will allow those stores to track your purchases whereas apple pay will not allow them to do so.
In the big picture, Apple Pay …
AAPL target (per Carl Icahn) = 203
Base scorecard starting price = 98
Current AAPL price = 105.22
notes: A number of stock media 'small minds' have blasted Icahn's analysis of an AAPL target of 203. These same 'small mind' types did it in past years with GOOG, earlier AAPL targets, CRM, NFLX, CMG, BIDU and a number of other growth stocks and also are doing it with TSLA now. Carl Icahn wasn't born a billionaire much less a millionaire. He made his money in the stock market. H…
It has occurred to me that people who own AAPL (Apple) products remain fiercely loyal. If they own an Apple phone, the next phone they own is also an Apple phone. If they own an Apple MAC computer, the upgrade will also be an Apple MAC pc. If they own an ipad, their next upgrade ,I surmise, will also be an ipad and not an android model. They will do this even if the competitor product is cheaper.
Along these lines, as APPLE moves into other arenas such as making payment (Apple PAY), people…
I came out of today with two key thoughts.
1) when the market has a big down or big up day, there is usually a good reason attributed to the up or downswing. I looked hard and far today for a 'good' reason or a 'bad reason' for the downturn. Today it was one of very rare events. THERE WAS NO REASON FOR THE DOWNTURN. The pros finally had to generalize and state it just was overall fear and anxiety. In other words, the market fell for no good reason, a flawed downswing.
2) During the&…
AAPL (Apple) Scorecard:
Journey to 203 target - My watch started at 98, AAPL at 103 intra-day, only 100 points for target goal.
MBLY : This stock is one of my portfolio members. Make no mistake, it's a speculative purchase. Currently at 51, based on earnings earmarked for 2014 at .19. Earnings estimate for 2015 is at .39... almost doubled.
All the trash talk dear Mr JoeJustJoe spewed out last week apparently goes for naught as AGAIN this BULL MARKET baffles 3J and a whole lot of market media types who just don't understand how this bull market works. In a roaring bull market like this one, there will be occasional dips and small corrections.
Watching 3J in action is a lesson on how NOT TO BEHAVE in a roaring bull market.
I sold NOT ONE SINGLE SHARE last week as I knew the downturn and fears and panic in the market w…
Why even anyone considered selling AAPL last week is beyond me!
AAPL continues to march forward Icahn's predication of 203....
.....and so it begins ....
AAPL exceeds earnings for the quarter... No surprise
AAPL exceeds sales of iphone6 ..... No real surprise
AAPL sales of MAC PC's hit record .... ok, a surprise
AAPL continues to buy back shares ..... No surprise
AAPL margins at high end of forecast .... Nice
I expect APPLE PAY to be huge.
I don't e…
