Quotes

...done a great job of both giving the consumer not only what it craves in the present, but products and services that it wants, and will eventually " need ", but just doesn't know it yet. Apple's track record of industry foresight has been amazing. Many contribute these wonderful ideas to Steve Jobs and fear that without his leadership, the company will lose some of its competitive advantage. I don't buy into this train of thought; Steve Jobs was obviously a visionary man, but Apple, alongside rival Google (NASDAQ: GOOG ), has taken steps to offer some of the most sought after jobs in the tech industry and is able to continuously attract the most qualified and intelligent individuals that this planet has to offer. Not only does this company offer me double digit expected earnings growth because of its product pipeline, but it is in the midst of a $90B buyback. Management feels that the stock is undervalued (Apple's forward P/E is hovering just above 13x)and I feel good knowing that due to the simple rules of supply and demand, just about every morning when I wake up, the shares I hold have become slightly more desirable than they were the previous day or week (I can only assume they are averaging into this $90B purchase) because of massive amounts of retired shares. This will also have a positive effect on the EPS numbers in the short/medium term. Some may call this financial engineering; I call it effective management. Apple shares currently yield 1.83% and give investors $1.88/share annually. The company's payout ratio is a conservative 28.5%, which leads me to believe that the dividend has plenty of room to grow. Management has also made a commitment to shareholders to continue to increase the dividend with CEO Tim Cook saying, "We also understand the importance of the dividend to many of our investors and we're increasing it for the second time in less than two years. We believe this is a meaningful increase for those shareholders who value income and we are planning for annual dividend increases going forward." in the second quarter conference call , making me all the merrier to continue to own and purchase more shares of this wonderful company."
...Beginning with the 2012 list, the criteria were expanded to include "Number of ACT National Career Readiness Debra Lyons is vice president for community and economic development for ACT, where she leads the Certified Work Ready Communities initiative. More information, including county-by-county NCRC skill data, is available online at www.workreadycommunities.org . Certificates per 1,000 residents aged 18-64" as one of 10 measures
"The ability to leverage tax-advantaged financing at low rates has again proven key to our ability to upgrade the medical services available to the people of Anderson County and surrounding areas" said Jerry Parrish , Chief Financial Officer at AnMed Health in Anderson
"With great sadness, we learned that a Broome High School student, who suffered a medical emergency at school and was transported to Mary Black Hospital, could not be resuscitated by medical staff."
