or is this a lost cause for core business?
Need to bring some value in other than living off the benefit of a holding of another publicly traded company. YANG would have done no worse. LOL
But someone else is taking the bows for someone elses astute foresight.
Maybe they'll bring back the only leader that did anything right. Yang.
If the hack didn't have the Golden Ticket of Baba, you'd all be calling for the hacks firing.
Look Jethro, you have nary a clue as to how it works when the market is in sell mode.
Yes Apple blew away earnings. Look for it to go red by days ending or at some point. That alone will #$%$ the markets and then you have Greece that is going to do whatever it takes to save themselves, and Russia HATES GERMANY.
Remember those World Wars? Comeuppance on the agenda.
Greece Begins The Great Pivot Toward Russia

Ten days ago, before the smashing success of Greece's anti-austerity party, Syriza, we noted that Russia gave Greece a modest proposal: turn your back on Europe, whom you despise so much anyway, and we will assist your farmers by lifting the food import ban.
And, sure enough, Greece's new premier Tsipras did hint with his initial actions that Greece may indeed pivot quite aggressively away from Europe and toward Russia in general and the Eurasian Economic Union in particular (as a tangent recall "Russia's "Startling" Proposal To Europe: Dump The US, Join The Eurasian Economic Union").
Some recent examples of this dramatic shift in perspective were the following:
Today we got further evidence that Tsipras will substantially realign his country's national interest away from the west and toward... the east.
First, as Reuters reported, today the new premier halted the "blue light special" liquidation of Greece to those highest bidders who have the closest access to various printing presses and stopped the privatization of Greece's biggest port on Tuesday, "signaling he aims to stick to election pledges despite warning shots from the euro zone and financial markets."
One of the first decisions announced by the new government was stopping the planned sale of a 67 percent stake in the Piraeus Port Authority, agreed under its international bailout deal for which China's Cosco Group and four other suitors had been shortlisted.
"The Cosco deal will be reviewed to the benefit of the Greek people," Thodoris Dritsas, the deputy minister in charge of the shipping portfolio, told Reuters.

With that in mind, here’s what Snowden had to say about the iPhone. From Yahoo:
The lawyer for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden says that his client never uses an iPhone because of fears about its security, Sputnik News reports.
Anatoly Kucherena spoke to news agency RIA Novosti and explained that Snowden is wary of the iPhone because of his knowledge of the NSA’s surveillance tactics.
“Edward never uses an iPhone, he’s got a simple phone,” the lawyer said. “The iPhone has special software that can activate itself without the owner having to press a button and gather information about him, that’s why on security grounds he refused to have this phone.”
Just something to keep in mind.
Talk about trying to make the shares rare and scarce. Wow. What a Rigging.
