By and large, I think Cook is doing all the important things right.
Shareholders -- and bloggers (who usually aren't shareholders) -- are wrong in their panting for the head of Tim Cook. Sometimes the hardest thing to do in investing is doing nothing. And waiting.
Maybe it's because I grew up on a farm, where I was always taught that you plant the seeds at the start of the season, you took care of them, and you harvested them at the end of the year.
You can jump up and down all you want. You can say your name is Smith or Jones or Einhorn or Gundlach and you can shout at the moon, but that won't make the seeds grow any faster.If you don't like Tim Cook or Apple, sell your shares (or short your stock) and don't use their products. I bought more Apple stock yesterday. At the time of publication the author was long AAPL.
