Look beyond the market hype, do the numbers and you will see when the market is losing its head, and it happens all the time.
The numbers at times do not tell the whole story!

Apple's problem is that like every tech coy, you must continue to drive new innovations (I dont envy them at all) The Samsungs and other smaller techs firms in China have really dealth them serious blow most especially in Asia where there is a far larger market.

As for Facebook, I still dont rate them too high until i see them able to generate income from advertisements on the mobile phobes and tablets! I think they were just overflogged by panicky investors in the first place.

To the first part in bold you forgot to mention HTC from Taiwan. To the second part in bold, facebook is already generating income from mobile be. It was significant in their last reported financial result

Apple cannot last forever. It's just a matter of time, it will crumble. We once discussed about apple on this site. They need to be innovating fast. But that is not possible. And I even mentioned that a time will come when the time between apple product release and its newer product release will be less than 3 months or so. And at that time, people will not buy the products again.

Bros, Facebook should hit $15! What crap did Mark announce yesterday? Just graph search! I expect the price to start falling!

Samsung will soon join apple after some years. Now they are so fast in innovations. There is a Samsung Smart Camera that snaps and you send the picture as an attachment. It's more like your mobile phone! Once a firm like that starts making drastic product changes(time between one product and its newer model), then it's time to flee. Example:What is the time difference between the release of iphone 5 and iphone 5s? The next one should be out this year--maybe iphone 6.

Agreed; the numbers do not tell the whole story but they do tell you a lot when you know what they stand for.

No matter how much you know and understand about any formula, if you do not know what the figures they give you tell you about the company, then you will be at a loss as to how to apply them profitably.

For a company in a competitive industry that releases its quaterly results in a timely manner. The turnover, cost of sales, operating profit, cash received from customers etc tell you a lot. If competitors are having a upper hand you will see it there in the figures. If they are finding it difficult to push their products from the ware-house, it shows, if distributors are having problems getting it to end-users it shows, if they are spending much on adverts and promotions it shows. Then there is also R&D for a company that wants to keep the cutting edge in a competitive industry.

E.g for high-tech coys, you will do well to watch these metrics in their reports.

In a recent article titled The Change in Corporate Behaviour for the World Economics Journal (http://www.smithers.co.uk/download.php?file=707), the legendary Andrew Smithers said the then Chancellor of the Exchequer of Britain, in the 1930s, Philip Snowden, is said to have remarked upon the success of a devaluation policy that "nobody told us that we could do that". How about that!

Well about time the current generation of western leaders woke up and smelt the coffee. When the second and third largest economies in the world - China & Japan, are running managed exchange rate regimes, what are smaller economies to do!
