This stock is tied right now to the value of the Brazilian currency. If tomorrow the real goes down 1%, PBR will go down 3%. Certainly not trading on fundamentals right now, either long or short. Just currency. Might as well trade the real outright.
You degenerate little pig. Why do you lie? Katy Huberty predicted 54 million iPhones sold. 52 million built and 2 million channel fill. The Alphawise tracker they use predicts 55 million. UBS is at a high with 58 million estimate. Barclays is at 54 million. The average estimate is somewhere around 54. Last year the final tallly was 43.5 million. That's 24% growth. If it comes to fruition, it will be a blowout first quarter. Can't do better than that.
Two years ago when APPL was at $400 pre-split, I read an article about a kid in China that sold his kidney to buy an I-Phone. I knew it was time to get into AAPL. There wasn't and isn't a company in the world outside of AAPL that can get a person to sell a vital organ to buy one of their products.
Flash forward two years later and in the news today you have a story about a kid selling meth in China so he can buy an Apple Watch. Again, there isn't a company in the world that can drive this much passion and loyalty from its customers. The organ donors and drug dealers have spoken.
China is the future for the smartphone market. The perfect market for an aspirational brand like AAPL.
