Have no long term view on this stock, but that earnings report was a manufactured "beat" on a massive loss of revenue. Can't see any upside on this one, and will hold my puts til tomorrow's close.
Not saying this to denigrate anyone else's opinion--just how I see it.
The board is always polluted with racists and loonies. You will need to replace that ignore button.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Listened to the call. While he emphasized that he couldn't comment on AAPL any more than any other customer, the overall structure of the presentation clearly indicated deployment across an integrated family of screens later in 2014.
The ball is in AAPL's court regarding the rollout of the video product (the wait has been long), but after listening to the presentation and reading the slides, am confident shareholders (not: "longs") will be rewarded later this year,
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I'm a liberal works at Apple, with a lot of other liberals. We make products so good, even ape-men can learn to use them.

He has zero motive to compromise. His opponents are ripping each other up like a school of barracudas. He will just let their feeding frenzy continue. No brainer.
You are bullish heading into the default you predicted. Well, bully for you Sherlock.
A brief technical default would not change too much at this point, the bond market is already spooked and has partly priced it in. Anything longer, ditto to all you say.
From his point of view, at least, he did the sensible concession thing in the past, and it got him nothing. And his opponents are destroying each other for him.
Totally agree on the one day default thing.
I agree. But since the Reps will be electorally weakened without the RINOs, it is not in Obama's interest to help them at this point. Plus--though this is probably incidental--Obama has every reason based on past experience to throw Boehner to the wolves: Boehner can't control his caucus, making him a useless negotiating partner, and he stiffed Obama in the past.
As pgnfm2009 points out, Obama's best tactic now is to make no compromises up to and including a brief technical default, get moderate Reps to take the fall, and run against a weakened party purged of "RINO"s.
No sane tactician is his position would give ground at this point, when his opponents are tearing themselves to shreds.
