Do a jump start. Enter a fake bid for 5 cents higher than current bid, then cancel the order after 3 seconds. You might be surprised what comes out of the woodwork.
I think there are 4 individual sapphire wrist sensors on the back of each watch. So, a total of 5 pieces of sapphire on each watch (including front display). That could add up faster than people think. (Maybe).
I-yoni, very sensible post. The honest answer is we don't know the relationship status between Apple and GT (aside from the watch). Matt thinks everything is fine, but that is just speculation. It's possible that GT can't get the job done right, and Apple will not buy.
Not really. If everybody walked away, the stock would be $0 and the CEO would be forced to show his hand. Which is the goal after all. At that point, bidding could begin with good faith.
Or another strategy besides calling and begging... Just vote with your feet. If you're not being treated right, just walk away. A lot of people are. Except Matt, who doubled down and thinks everything is perfectly on plan with no evidence whatsoever.
Excellent point, persona non grata. And all the longs just dismissed those other analyst reports as FUD. Whatever that means. But it turns out that they were right. Meanwhile, Matt keeps saying "everyone was blindsided". What a liar. That is simply not true. Even that Asian guy he likes said NO sapphire in any iPhone. And Matt smeared him, instead of taking it into consideration.
I agree with what you wrote. I'm just wondering if he has the ability to learn from his mistakes. Prolly not.
Or is he still in denial? He's had a full day to recover from the "deer in headlights" effect. If he doesn't issue a Mia Culpa, he really is a slime. For pounding the table so hard, and being so ridiculously confident about sapphire when the whole analyst world was putting the brakes on. You have to wonder if he learned anything from this whole debacle, or if he's really just another smug analyst like all the rest.
