Tomorrow, the Jaguar dealer!
ditzil: I'll be back in China in June. I'll report any decrease in appetite for Apple products that I see, but that is not happening as of today. Honestly, I don't see that happening anytime soon. And, going beyond iPhone sales, I think the Gold iWatch will sell better in China than the USA. In my opinion, "saber rattling" is always about finding a solution from a different starting point. It would be so easy for Apple to move factories to India (Little China). Personally, I think Apple has done a wonderful job of increasing worker's rights and welfare over the years. Change like this takes decades and must start with a long range vision. Apple is not insensitive to workers rights (by US standard). The best way to win this fight is by proving capitalism works. Believe me, much has change since my first visit to China in 1975. The skyline of every major city changes every 12 months. New cities spring forth from nowhere. There is more money pouring into Chinese pockets than ever before. I personally know people that own over five properties. And, as side note, some Chinese think drinking coffee is cool too! Look at SBUX. Good Luck, the next 48 hours will be interesting.
I go to China (Guangzhou and Beijing) at least once a year and you are correct, that is where the growth is coming from. Last year, we took my nephew (age six) an iPad, that's all he wanted. He was not alone, everywhere we went all we saw were Apple products being displayed as status symbols. China loves Apple products and BMWs. It will be mind-numbing quarterly sales (Chinese New Year sales included this quarter) of over 60 million iPhones sold. Some have postulated a $25 price move on those type of numbers. I don't know the magnitude of the share price increase, but I am confident of the direction.
25 points and I will need to move some money to new accounts. it puts me over the limit.
Months of bragging that he sold all of his Apple at $132.
Months of telling us that Apple would never see $128 again.
Months of insulting anyone long Apple.
What will the Sheep, with no skin in game, spend his time doing come next week?
I don't think they have. Something around 5/5/15 should be in the ballpark with a 5/12/15 pay date. The last dividend posted to my account on 2/12/15.
Dude, I love you...but, isn't that one reason? As you have previously, you can easily list another four (12) others reasons for $180.
