Apple is America .
Sentiment: Strong Buy
True, But sad.
Right now, Apple brands are the most important export products of USA;
and no reasonable commentator would further pummel it.
And do not forget: right now, the diappointed AAPL investors, are the vast majority;
Most AAPl investors are underwater, my estimate is more than 80% is underwater.
But longer term, the favourable AAPL fundamentals, still pretty good, still growth story, will prevail.
If it was an Asian company, they would understand what you mean by preserving the countries pride and wealth. but these jokers only think about their salaries and keeping their jobs by listening to their bosses.
