Why The Excitement? Judge Rules and AAPL Appeals.....
I'm not sure why everyone is getting excited, thinking we're nearing some type of deadline. The judge will make his ruling and, if not in AAPL's favor, AAPL will appeal. We will then wait about a year for a ruling on the appeal. An end to this isn't anywhere is sight, so I don't know why this stock is over $15 right now.
terp, they are working on deal - it sounds like they jointly asked for the weekend to finish it. I have no idea what the deal is but VHC obviously like what they see so far or we would not be talking about the 15th. Why take the risk? Cover your position and wait till the 15th, you had to have made money on the CSCO drop.
zeler, there isn't going to be any deal. AAPL is not going to cave into anything. This is an AAPL appeal waiting to happen. AAPL already has a workaround and they certainly wouldn't have bothered with it if they had even the slightest intention to settle. By even mentioning a workaround, they are admitting guilt of infringement. Therefore, they have absolutely no intention of dealing with VHC.
