our results stand, we were up 8% for the year, the indices were much lower and negative. I'll stand by it. this year we are up 20% or so.

how do you know it was better than what we did, Seth? we banked 150%, 200% and some more multiple times during the month of December. I'm happy to share that with you via email, which was time-stamped. I respect others' approach and work but it's nice to have the same courtesy. I'm not in a contest to see who is better.

thanks Seth. like all insurance, it's a nuisance to pay for it but you're glad you have it when it's needed. like in December. we had stellar performance that month as the puts won out.

Apple Is Slowly Blowing Companies Away
3 years ago

thanks again....a phone company not in the sense of AT&T or Verizon, rather a phone hardware company. they derive 80% or more of its sales from iPhone, so if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck...u know the rest. This is the only distinction I made here, but notice I talked about the watch, apps, services and coming new stuff like content. So, I realize they are looking for new sources of revenue but the dominant one comes from iPhone (for now).
