    What do you think 368 million loss plus royalties of 1% to VHC will do to AAPL.

    Companies usually reserve for potential patent infringement losses, so the up-front is likely already reserved. Whether there is an ongoing royalty owed will depend upon whether that is the final judgment and whether AAPL can work around one or more of the patents to avoid the royalty in the future. Also, don't know if this is the end of the court process, or if they could appeal this for years to come. Just some thoughts.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
