Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I heard Apple's market cap is so big they could buy every listed company on the Russia stock exchange and still have enough left over to give every person in Russia an iPhone 6

Apple reached a market cap of 710 billion today. Doing the math, they will reach a 1 trillion market cap if the the share price reaches 172. Is that right?

So now with Apple being a car company, $200 sounds reasonable.

Thoughts?

Ridiculous.

Look at AAPL's current margins: Stock Quote AAPL Apple Inc.
... 30% operating margin, 22% profit margin

Look at GM and Ford's: Stock Quote GM General Motors Company Stock Quote F Ford Motor Co.
... 2-4% margins

Cell phones are traded in every year or two, and the cost is subsidized by the carrier. When people trade in their AAPLMobile, is someone going to pay them to take a new one, if they sign up for a contract of some kind? Nope. And the average age of a car is over 10 years old now, not the one/two year turnover we see in the cell phone biz.

I think AAPL could do a good job at making a car, but they are much more complex, the market is already saturated, the margins are WAY too low, and the turnover is too infrequent. As a consumer, the prospect is interesting, but for an investor, it seems a bit suicidal for a company doing so well to do something so stupid.

This all TSLA halo effect.

Apple's $750bn valuation is nothing, historically.

The Dutch East India Company, adjusted for inflation in today's dollars, was worth $7.4 trillion.
