Apple should subsidize advertising for carriers in china who DO offer iphones & mention apple prominently in their ads. that would motivate China Mobile.
Time for Apple to continue with their buy back for sure!! If all the upgrades are correct now would be the time work on the $100 billion buy back. I think most so far has been bought at under $500!!!
Best way for Apple to deal with China Mobile is to sell the heck out of their phones to CM's competition. If CM is dragging their heels then start making announcements about which companies to whom apple is selling phones
The article is kind of confusing. The apple insider article just shows the webpage, I guess if you can read Chinese maybe you can see where pre orders have been made otherwise is it just hits on a web page? That many in sales so quickly would make a huge splash.
and Apple is in the red. #$%$ weird. someone really needs apple to be at 560 ??
Sure that wasn't the number of hits on the web site in china listing apple phones? article was written funny
If interest rates go up Apple will have a new unexpected cash stream! Cramer mentioned this months ago. Special dividend, other than slight increase in the existing, would be a mess. I remember when msft did that if not mistaken.
I thought the volume was a little below average, I just checked and after hours it is above. A lot of sales after hours pushed the price up a bit?
Here is a cut & paste from a Seeking Alpha article listed on the summary page. How weird is it??
Coming into today, we had a Buy-rating with an $855 price tag. Based on our updated model, we are now seeing shares worth $700 over the next twelve months. The main factors for this change are that we believe that we cannot price Apple in the same way we price other names and need to price it in its own specific way.""
I would be more than pleased to see a green close and hold Friday's gains - from what I read we are up from here thru 2014
Same question, I was thinking if apple pays their own lawyers then the money will be enough to buy a 6-Pack?
