Com -- -- -- it today because we get a look back on the path some wonder what happened and why.
Do you think Steve Jobs looking at this company today.
Would like what he sees it today that stock has percolate it again but the rap against the company is that it's falling behind on the wow factor that others like Samsung.
Even talk that it's gonna have its own little Smart watts coming out may be ahead of apple that it's lost its ads in that he would be he would be angry.
I don't think self the state picked this team this is a much more mature Steve Jobs who was running apple.
Now in his second tour but another thing -- -- in -- that he is no Steve Jobs he fit that maybe floated a mistake -- about it.
And I don't think he ever presented himself as a Steve Jobs.
I think what Steve said look Johnny IV is the one who's going to.
Be leading the creative direction for the user experience in the case of the design.
And I think that the expectation that that.
Tim Cook is set for later this year and all of that here is that they are -- to have some really significant new products.
And they can emulate -- -- -- Emma.
I think that's the -- that that apple would -- -- way ahead of other guys that tends to follow other guys even down to talk that the next iPhone whatever it's gonna look like might look a lot like.
Some of Samsung's offerings.
Let me give me another point of view -- what would it take to get apple to a 600 dollar stock or more.
And I think what it would take is that something here you know more than just a refresher the products.
I don't know whether they'll get a deal with China Mobile -- -- Tim Cook was over -- recently but a deal with China Mobile for a new line of -- -- at a lower price point which they badly needed for some time that would be a huge.
You know impact in terms of the growth opportunities for apple.
On the wearable market Samsung is expected to introduce a wearable before apple.
But apple has.
What their passbook software which could be easily put on a wearable -- watch device when they have 550.
Million credit cards.
Out there and they could go.
They don't they have -- our program does that present -- that got to build all of that but let me ask you -- about all these investors taking keen interest in and out Carl Icahn.
Obviously to a billion dollar plus degree.
-- -- -- a lot last but it could build on the 645 million resorted planet.
Obviously date -- there's value there but when you think -- that as a CEO wanted to -- were -- an apple and eight.
You know investors come in are they a distraction in order to appease them they needed to spend more your cats is that because of the points.
Certainly icon is making now of apple.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Sure I think it's it's distracting but in my that's the reality that.
Apple is a huge valuation out -- someone can put a billion dollars to work as an investment in apple and the flow is large enough that they know they can get their money out if they can get it.
Get an arbitrage and I think that whether it's Carl Icahn -- George Soros.
That they see some upside in Apple's future it -- apple has been kind of dark with new products for awhile and I think they also see.
Hopefully that maybe apple will you know increases.
Dividend very increase its buyback.
I don't -- you -- I got you under my -- -- that's what I know you were brought -- to -- -- just button down you know practical.
Corporate Robin toss to a company that was freewheeling it just had -- sort of the same thing that it's -- -- Google arts and when it came to Google.
On but the rap against apple today.
Is it's it's far from the sort of entrepreneurial.
Free thinking very innovative company it was -- -- gotten very corporate down to.
Trying to appease shareholders that invest so I could see why.
You know booster dividend.
And put -- -- recast to work the kind of stuff that traditional.
Companies still but.
I don't know may be inundated.
-- from the at companies.
Tend not to care what you.
Make -- Well I think your observation is a really important question.
And I think that apple has this challenge that every time it's gross margin goes down you know it gets whacked on its -- multiple.
-- let's take Amazon.
Because Jeff these -- so creative.
He gets a pass on that and he keeps inventing new things to do Google -- the same white so I think that Apple's got to get back on a growth of the game.
I think buying stock back it doesn't really have much impact it may be it that.
It plays Kate's certain investors but -- -- the real thing as they've they've got to do some something bold whether it's a wearable whether or something with.
What apple TV or whether it's -- a lot of low cost line of the Mac products that can be sold into Asia where all the growth this man they they have to do something significant and my expectation.
Because I'd listen I have no inside.
You know keep track as to what they're really doing really you have -- and -- -- still own Apple Stock game.
No I I don't Apple Stock but that doesn't give me an inside connection.
I think that.
Them and I got Qaeda.
Have been around apple for thirty years source ought to know what the cultures like my sense is they've got very good people Tim Cook is an excellent CEO.
I think they're gonna get be able to show the world.
That that apple is alive and well on the gonna have some of my in my opinion they'll probably have some really great products and when -- fourteen.
You know modest losing your back your patsy days I heard about this -- -- produces some and I couldn't believe it.
The Pepsi is is going to have a product called Pepsi flavored she does.
And I thought of myself she does a fine.
I could see ranch flavored she does I could see blue cheese went -- -- -- Pepsi flavored cheese at us you know any about that.
Is there any control you have it you're authority today to go after the executive who came up with that.
-- were in charge at -- probably not that's what the -- ideas I've ever heard.
And now I'm an I'd say today the the momentum is what -- However ties him and it's it's pretty spectacular what they've they've done over the last few years so I thought I hope I wish Pepsi well but I don't have -- inside track there as well.
I didn't think you wouldn't -- -- -- the you would come up with Jon -- it's always a pleasure.
Come back again mixing it.
Fact they'll all right don't spend lots of negative sentiment in the play who would play in the system -- -- dead anyway --
