Analysts conservatively estimate only in the 70s millions Apple Phones Sold. ON OTHER HAND when compared vs. ANDROID phone totals, each Apple Phone Sold in $$ can be equal to up to 6 Android phones ! I bought 3 Android LG-90 phones TMobile Sept. 2014 for Family Plan at $99 each. No Contract ! Now I bought 1 Apple iPHONE6 for $749, larger screen model. Get my point. 70 Million Apple phones sold = 300 - 500 million Android phones, when adjusted for $$$ REVENUE per Phone. This is why Apple Stock is going to ROCK at earnings. This is why APPLE makes so much money per phone, vs. LG, HTC, Nokia, BBRY, even Samsung earns going down, and Lenovo makes almost nothing too per phone sold. The LOW COST ANDROID "Clone-Phones" are not making any money at low prices basically. And they don't work as well either. Not everyone can afford to pay so much for Apple phones, but the top 10 - 12% in China, and top half in USA that can, and top half in Japan, still makes tons TONS money for Apple.
guy scut the nonsense. Analysts estimates are only in the 70s millions Apple Phones Sold. ON OTHER HAND when compared vs. ANDROID phone totals, each Apple Phone Sold in $$ can be equal to up to 6 Android phones ! I bought 3 Android LG-90 phones TMobile Sept. 2014 for Family Plan at $99 each. No Contract ! Now I bought 1 Apple iPHONE6 for $749, larger screen model.

Plus I'd sold $112 Calls. Both expire Jan. 17. Am hoping I get the Stock PUT to me really cheaply later today, since Earns. coming Jan. 27th should be great... (I was going to say an Oil Gusher, but you understand why I won't recent news).
Huge Earns. coming Jan. 27, only two Tuesdays from now. Expected to be Apple's Best Quarter Ever. And to report 50% growth in Apps. sales, starting roll-out of Apple Pay, gains in Market Share in China and Japan, and continued buildup in Cash Hoard, despite stock buybacks.
Goldman Sachs sold Boat-Load of Calls and Puts at $105. Now that the overall stock market is not dropping they are doing their best to manipulate down AAPL stock price on Low Volume selling in last 15 mins. Trying to get it down to $105 where they can wipe out all the Calls and Puts they sold expire later today. SEC anyone?
Copper's back almost to where it was before its plunge from Tues. night (Weds. Asian trading) on the World Bank scaled back 2015 growth forecast from 3.4% to 3%. Actually moderate growth is better, as now no-one fears inflation, and interest rates are being lowered, and it provides "political cover" for EuroBank Quant Easing.
Copper is close to $2.57/lb. now. Almost back to its price before Tues night / Weds' plunge. As an article later in week indicated, the leading Copper Cos. in USA, Chile and Zambia already shelved expansion plans in mining, and so there may actually be a SHORTAGE in COPPER THIS YEAR. Also OIL Prices are now going up overnight from Chinese / Asian and Russian? buying as well.
So grab FCX while you can. Copper's almost back to where it was before World Bank lowered world Growth Forecast from 3.4% to 3% after hours Tues. that knocked Copper down from $2.59 /Lb. to $2.46/lb. by Weds., but now its back almost the whole way to $2.56/lb. The stock market may also rebound tomorrow in USA, since Oil and Copper are both going up now.
Copper is UP after hour's in Fri. ASIAN TRADING, as is OIL. Oil and Copper are both now up. Chinese Shanghai (mainland China) market is also trading up.
What we're witnessing I believe, is the World Economic Leadership pass from old declining Europe (even the European's population is going down, with neg. pop. growth of Christian Europeans & Jus, and Muslim rapid population growth).... and CHINA EMERGING AS MORE OF AN ECONOMIC POWER, WITH CHINA HAVING TRILLIONS OF FOREIGN EXCHANGE AND GOLD RESERVES. So China is buying up Copper and Oil, and its own Shanghai Stocks this Friday.
