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?
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.
Sure that wasn't the number of hits on the web site in china listing apple phones? article was written funny
and Apple is in the red. #$%$ weird. someone really needs apple to be at 560 ??
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.
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
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!!!
Apple should subsidize advertising for carriers in china who DO offer iphones & mention apple prominently in their ads. that would motivate China Mobile.
I hope apple is using this opportunity to buy back shares to improve the P/E ratio. I think there is plenty left in their buyback declaration total.
...And the winning suggestion from that CEO directive is too.... COPY APPLE MORE QUICKLY!!
