First, Obama already said Boehner's offer is not enough. Second, there is NO fiscal cliff deal that solves anything. No matter what 'deal' is done, it will trigger IMMEDIATE US debt downgrades by the rating agencies. The US is already over the cliff, with no adults to fix it.
Apple will not be selling expensive products in any meaningful way moving forward - huge price cuts coming.
I am a broker - you guys should start reading something credible like zerohedge. Fiscal cliff kick the can down the road garbage will be crushed by rating agencies. You probably think there is a difference between the Republican and Democratic parties too. Laughable.
AAPL missed on top line last 2 qtr's and Q4 will be a bone crusher...thats why it's selling off...all easily measured pronostics, ie chip sales, monkey glass, etc etc...the tax selling is only part of it...besides appl is getting smashed by Chinese phones, lower cost ipads, cheap pcs, ipod becoming a dinosaur, etc etc
I think it must be you that is desperate. There is no deal that fixes anything. They are debating about $200 billion, when we have a TRILLION dollar yearly deficit. Any deal being discussed only makes all too clear thatt the US is bankrupt.
