This CM deal is not an Apple China deal. It is just China will offer 4G. With that so many people are acting like that is an Apple deal, NOT! There are many 4G phones cheaper than the iPhone and made in China. Unlike us they like to buy products made in their county.
Do nothing but watch nothing happen on 12/18
Do you really think that Apple and CM would telegraph a date? Market is forward looking and giving this date a big Ho Hum. So don't be holding your breath for any kind of announcement.
That must be the WORST possible advice but typical for this board. Why buy puts if you think it will Skyrocket buy calls. Buy Dec Calls with very small premium and if the rumor is true, I can even type this with a straight face, BUT if the rumor is true you stand to make a fortune.
Buying puts are only if you think the stock will drop.
you buy and hold the stock. That's how you play apple. The 3D sensor tech they just bought tells you where they are going. I would take Steve Jobs seriously when he came out with his claim about changing how TV is used. Whatever it is, you can be sure cable stocks and netflix will take a hit when iTV news comes out. Expect the news later in 2014. In the meantime, they will expand their iPhone and iPad markets. The stock could get back to 700 in 2014.
