You missed the point. Google confirmed today that they are a one trick pony. They haven't figured-out how to make money any other way that search. And, they likely won't ever. And search revenues are in secular decline.
They have 30 billion left in the buy-back. They should be hitting the ask and supporting the price. They should then announce an increase buy-back at the shareholders meeting in February.
It's his fault that they were supply constrained on the 5s. They made a HUGE miscalculation on the demand for the plastic 5c and therefore under-planned for the production of the 5s. That was a bush league mistake. And he is supposed to be a supply chain genius....
Also, China Unicom and China Telecom were only selling in the month of December in 2012. They were both selling for the full quarter in 2013.
You think 20 is a small number, but a number as small as "1" can be significant in life. Look what "1" extra chromosome did to you.
Actually, if you translate the text that Shawn posted, it seems that gold is not the most popular color at China Mobile.
Your an idiot. Go back to your Worlds of Warcraft game.
If history always repeated itself in the stock market everyone would be rich.
90% of those guys are abject morons writing articles from their parents basement.
Samsung was predicting 13 million unit sales of the g4 as late as December. The sold 9 million for the quarter. Those missing 4 million units went right into Apples pocket. Meanwhile, the Chinese are beating them up at the low end. That 20 billion dollar ad budget will have to come down soon as earnings continue to decline. Samsung will not be a player in the high-end smart phone game in the next 2-3 years. They will be fighting for scraps at the low-end with Chinese OEM's that will destroy them.
Yeah, and that #$%$ just took down his estimates to 250,000 units through CM in the first weekend from 500,000 based on calls he made to CM stores.
Well, let's see. Netflix added 2 million new subs. Apple will sell closet to 100 million iOS devices AND have huge mac growth and huge app sales growth. So, theoretically Apple should skyrocket, but, Apple is currently unloved by the street so anything could happen.
You're not missing anything. Apple will post 60+ million iphone sales, 30+ million iPad sales, Revs of 60 billion and earnings closer to $15.00.
I would argue that Verizon's percentage of global sales is lower than 9% this year as there has been huge growth on Japan with DoCoMo and the price wars in Japan and other providers have been added since last year as well.
Add to this the DoCoMo numbers which are all an incremental increase YOY. And that 75% of all new iphone activations in Japan were iPhones due to a price war in Japan due to DoCoMo getting the iphone. Those incremental numbers will be massive. And, the same thing will happen in China this quarter and moving forward in China now that CM has the iphone and soon the iPad.
This is a good proxy for Apple! Apple is going to crush earnings on Monday.
