I learned a long time ago, don’t outthink it.
Apple has more cash than any other company in the world, but it has not made any big investments since its $3 billion acquisition of Beats by Dre in 2014.
The retailer's business structure is changing for the worse -- and it's being ignored.
Apple's CEO is on a goodwill mission touring China, but can a new research development center help Apple avoid regulatory hurdles?
Low unemployment driving up consumer spending helps companies.
Apple longs have a powerful ally in the Swiss National Bank.

Continuing currency debasement. Gold prices that are gaining momentum. Wage growth that's ticking up. Energy and other commodity prices that have seemingly bottomed out. U.S. fiscal spending that seems poised to gain steam. Both Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and Republican rival Donald Trump are proposing huge infrastructure programs. Central banks decidedly erring on the side of too much stimulus vs. too little. European and Japanese government-bond markets that have no cushion from losses if an exogenous event hits, given that they currently have manipulated prices (i.e., negative yields). Now if the Fed were to shift gears and definitively signal that U.S. rate hikes lie ahead, that would squash my view here. But that seems unlikely through year's end. Still, Fed chair Janet Yellen's planned Aug. 26 speech at Jackson Hole should be interesting. We'll want to hear what she has to say given U.S. stocks' recent record highs and the futures market putting the odds of even one 2016 Fed rate hike at less than 50/50.
Besides Tesla, Twitter and Biogen make good candidates.
U.S. futures were pricing positively ahead of July's jobs report.
