Ah. Nothing in the phone itself except the ability to do ApplePay which I know I could do with the watch. But I'm really waiting more to see what additional advances will be noted Sept 9 wrt the watch, ApplePay and the phone to motivate me to spend the money. Truth is I don't feel any lacking not using a watch so I'm waiting to for something to make "need" to make the changes.
I don't have the watch since I have an iPhone 5S. But my contract is up in December and I'll get the 6+ and then also pop for the watch.
I understand your confusion. Up looks a lot like down if you're siting on the wrong side of the table.
Well the market has certainly been weak and the worst may lie ahead but the charts and evidence is far from conclusive. I assume you're not too serious about the futures - that's interesting but at this point the indexes that matter (Asia) are pretty mixed with the ups far greater than the downs. That leads to stability in the futures, typically, and we're already seeing that setting up. Will it continue? Who knows? AH action was disappointing to be sure but that drop was consistent with AAPL following the market downward with a lag. So, should we panic? I don't think so, at least not yet. And besides, there's nothing anyone can do tonight and tomorrow will tell the tale early enough. Good luck.
Well I was speaking in jest of course. But I expected better from Obama and got more of the same - broken promises, support for Wallstreet banksters (who have made far more than the "oil buddies") and a debt load, a tenth of which he called failed leadership when produced by "W". So I see them both as sad periods in American history. Maybe President Trump will do less harm...
It's comical if you have the stomach for dark humor. You see claims of "shorting at the top" and many self-replies, just like you see claims of buying at the bottom when the worm turns. Of course someone sold at the top and bought at the bottom but likely they aren't bragging about it on this MB. It's a tough time for longs right now just as the last year has been a nightmare for shorts. I have no idea where AAPL is headed or the market in general. It appears that the market has further to drop given S&P historical charts and AAPL could be near a bottom but as we saw a couple years ago and have seen many times, AAPL can surprise and disappoint the best prognosticators. I'll observe for now. The trend is down and some falling knives are more like meat cleavers. But when the trend turns, I'll be ready to invest. Apple still makes great products and is cheap right now. Just don't confuse "cheap" with a buy signal. And as Billy-Joel once sang, "You should never argue with a crazy man...".
One does wonder when/if the carnage will end? I believe the stock justifies $20 but there needs to be a real stimulus to move the stock up. But at some point, there should be a turn.
Could be. It's disappointing that the timing was so poor on TACO entering the market via LEVY. Had this occurred 6 months earlier I think things would have been different. TACO has definitely become the falling knife in spite of Del Taco beating all expectations. They need Elon Musk to tweet that he is eating a breakfast burrito he just picked up driving through in a Tesla...
Yes I agree. That's why I started by saying I won't compare Dorsey to Jobs. I'm just saying that there will be many who hate Dorsey today and will embrace him if named permanent CEO - deserved or not.
I won't compare Dorsey to Jobs but this whole situation reminds my of the return of Jobs to Apple when most investors thought that was the end. And that worked out OK. I have to believe it's the uncertainty that the market hates. I don't see TWTR rocketing but I can envision so further PPS recovery just on an announcement and getting back to business rather than speculation. And speaking of Dorsey, if he's the choice, I suspect that he'll be as hated as Lebron was in Cleveland 30 seconds after his return was announced. Dorsey is no Lebron but I think the home team will support him as captain.
Now whether twitter has an ultimately successful business model is an entirely different question.
Good luck to all but I think this hamburger is overcooked. Very disappointed in the secondary offering but when we hit 60 I was gone. Hope you all do well.
Hope you're right but I doubt it. It really ticks me off they would do this and I'm afraid $60 is in the cards. And if my experience holds out with secondary offers maybe even lower. I made some money here but I'm giving a lot of it back. But I'm thinking protective puts paid for with short calls may be in order.
Well I may not agree with your numbers but I totally agree with you advice. Love the products but not the stock - any stock. It's inventory for the trader and nothing more.
Did you read the Verizon release? They will reduce the monthly plan essentially by the monthly subsidy (about $20/month average) which is about what the subsidized portion of the phone is now on a 2 year contract. So those who have already afforded an iPhone will likely see that as a trade-off. And those who want an iPhone but can't afford one, still can't. This was announce over the weekend and had no negative effect on AAPL. This is all about China over-exposure and as soon as retail investors begin to see that this will have little effect on Chinese buyers capable of buying an iPhone - this issue will give way. Just like everything else in Apple's path. What we do have to fear, I agree, is a market melt-down but that is not an AAPL-only concern.
