from a share price perspective, earnings don't matter. china mobile deal does.
isn't that obvious?
the cash has been a problem for aapl for many years now. anyone with any sort of finance background would have realized this long ago. and the largest company in the world doesn't have the knowledge to realize this. amazing.
it is so sad that you are still here. any sane person would have realized by now that they are not getting their investment back. in fact, they would have realized that years ago.
your posts could not be any more sad.
aapl has nothing to do with the markets. aapl is not going up anytime soon because the market does not like aapl. having sold 9MM phones in 3 days and the share price is below the share price when the phones were announced tells you it does not matter what they do. eventually if they keep buying back shares the share price will go up but those hoping for a 10% pop are likely to keep hoping.
