    • Hi White, long time no see. :-)

    • this is only the beginning.. these crooks have the power to turn apple into rim if they want

    • Today was an epic failure for cnbc. They tried to talk it down each step of the way when the stock was headed lower. I loved their articles, 4 stocks better to buy than apple, sliding and dicing the apple. Total desperation on their part to drive the stock down. I think Michelle is wishing for 7.9" this Christmas.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • BRILLIANT!!! YOU"RE RIGHT.....I could not figure out why the entire CNBC TEAM was on the bash train!!! It makes complete sense.....AAPL is a threat to the entire organization and everyone MUST drink the Cool Aid!!!!!!!

      It's a fully coordinated effort

    • They are always wrong anyhow. I would love to go Five rounds with Bob Fisanni .. I would make his loud mouth eat my fist he is such a liar. He has been trying to scare people out of the market since May!! If you get your investment advice from CNBC then you are a Troll and you deserve to lose money. Cramers charitable fund cant afford to feed children in a tiny African village!

      Sentiment: Buy

        Good to see Lorde_Chatterly & go4two2001,

        I've just beeen super busy. It's ALL GOOD... I am INVESTED in AAPL for the LONG-TERM !!!!

        P.S. - The perma-bashing by the Filthiest Network in TV History (CNBC) has reached a fever point -- so APPLE INC. must be making excellent progress toward a disrupting iTV Smart Television that cuts cable TV wires.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

        Strong iPhone 5 launch in China highlights Apple's 'enormous' growth opportunity
        By Neil Hughes

        Greater China has become an increasingly important part of Apple's business, generating about 15 percent of the company's fiscal 2012 sales, and the nation's role is expected to grow even more with a particularly strong debut for the iPhone 5.

        After Apple announced on Sunday that it sold more than 2 million iPhone 5 units in China over the device's launch weekend, Wall Street analysts reacted positively to the news. Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets noted it's the first time ever that Apple has issued a post-launch press release for an iPhone in China.

        The strong start for the iPhone 5 should address concerns held by some investors that the device was off to a slow start in China. Some of those beliefs stemmed from reports of small crowds at Apple's retail stores, complaints that were proven unfounded because of Apple's new online reservation system designed specifically to cut down on crowds.

        During the third quarter of 2012, Canalys estimates that more than 50 million smartphones were shipped in China, with Apple holding an 8 percent share. There are a total of 212.1 million 3G subscribers in the nation, representing 93 percent year over year growth.

        Given these statistics, White characterized the opportunity for Apple in China as "enormous." He believes 3G subscribers in China will reach 230 million by the end of 2012, and as many as 350 million by the end of 2013.

        Brian Marshall with ISI Group noted that Apple sold 5 million iPhone 5 units when the handset debuted in 9 countries, including the U.S., in September. He estimates that about 2 million iPhone 5 units were sold by U.S. carriers in the first 10 days of launch, giving Apple about a 1 percent penetration of a post-paid subscriber base of around 200 million.

        "In a shorter timespan of just 3 days, AAPL sold over (2 million) units at China Unicom and China Telecom, or (about 1.5 percent) penetration of a (130 million) 3G subscriber base," Marshall said. "In our view, this suggests potential for subscriber penetration in China could be similar to that of developed countries, despite per capita GDP that is less than 1/5 of the U.S."

        For Marshall, the success of the iPhone 5 further highlights the potential of a deal with China Mobile, the largest carrier in the world with about 700 million subscribers. That's nearly double the 400 million subscribers Apple currently has access to through China Unicom and China Telecom.

        Marshall sees a potential deal with China Mobile in 2013 as a "significant" catalyst for Apple that could drive growth next year.

        Finally, Shaw Wu with Sterne Agee also noted that the iPhone 5 launch in China was "strong," and Apple's sales of 2 million "should help quell investor concerns." He noted that Apple did not provide any iPhone 4S sales, which makes it impossible to put the iPhone 5 launch in context, but carrier China Unicom did see its preorders grow by 50 percent.

        "We remain comfortable with our above consensus iPhone forecast looking for 47.5 million units for the December quarter," Wu said. "We continue to believe iPhone 5 is a significant update positioned to drive a powerful product cycle."

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      I'm as big of an Apple bull as there is, with basically my life savings long the stock. That said, I just don't see this "bashing" by CNBC. Apple is the world's largest traded company and this simply goes with the territory.

      CNBC is always extremely warm and receptive to both Brian White and Gene Munster, having them on air seemingly more than all other networks combined. And Jon Fortt's coverage of the conference calls is ALWAYS upbeat, thorough and professional.

      I think CNBC plays a bit of a contrarian position on Apple, simply to gain what virtually everyone here contributes to ... their viewership. But to say that there's some concerted effort by the Powers That Be over at Comcast is just plain silly. Any of these on-air personalities would walk away from the network and tell their story for 5-10 times as much money as they'll ever make staying on the network and engaging in this very far fetched conspiracy theory. Take the tinfoil off, folks.

        FAIR ??????????? .... Who are you kidding ???

        CNBC-COMCAST ba$hes APPLE 24/7 for MONTHS...and then brings on an APPLE "bull" maybe once a day. That is fair?

        Here's the facts:

        CNBC-COMAST FEARS APPLE disrupting their business model - by deliverying content wirelessly into the APPLE ECOSYSTEM of 300 MILLION+ users. Essentially, the cable TV wires will be "cut" or bypassed. THEREFORE, there is a bias against APPLE INC.

        Meli$$a Lee (wicked evil Korean $hill) has been PERMA-BA$HING APPLE INC. for as long as I can remember! Is she "FAIR"??? If you are deaf, then - you think she is fair.

        Hedge Funds have close ties to CNBC-COMCAST to manipulate stocks like APPLE....and many are "$hort", but -- the bottom is either "in" or "very close".


        INVEST in AAPL for the LONG-TERM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Drama Sells and whatever fires they can stoke to bring in viewership and to get people to watch a train wreck they will say and do it.
        If that means saying the world is coming to an end because a stock with a 52 week low of $378 is now sitting at $511 is a bad thing I guess that's ok.

    • I wonder what the really big investors do? The ones that lose a million every time Melissa bashes. You would thing lawsuits would be in order. No?

    • There is your motive for the class action lawsuit. Done.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
