So it took this long to find out there was a problem with the boules. Did the finishing company use the boules as paper weights until this month?
I was talking about the 128gb version. It can't be more than 10-15 million for demand. Most buyers choose the lowest storage option. A 128gb sapphire 5.5 iPhone 6 may cost $500 or more with a contract, $1,000 without.
Just a rumor I was reading. It said that sapphire will only be on the 5.5 128gb model.
Would Apple scrap their plans and go with gorilla glass in the future.
What is value of company without Apple? Will they fall back down to low single digits?
There's no doubt it is real. Problem is....yields are low. Rumor is that sapphire will be only on the 128gb 5.5 version. I don't think apple will sell more than 10 million of that model. The street was modeling for 200 million sapphire covers. Now it is 10 million. Understandable why the stock has dropped 30%. I'm buying if it goes to $10 hoping that Apple keeps gt on as a supplier. Iffy since Apple can't be thrilled with gt since they were unable to fill the order. However it looks like gt is the only company that has the ability, or says they have the ability, to make a couple hundred million sapphire screens...that gives me hope it might reach $20 in 2016. Their solvency depends on if Apple continues down the sapphire road...hard to say for sure if they will. It's worth the gamble that sapphire is the future.
Rumors kinda make sense with the 30% drop from high. It's hard to believe it wouldn't be on the 5.5 model....maybe Apple will wait till next year when the yields can be depended upon. And even say the iwatch won't include sapphire on all models. If that's the case I think $10 is right around the corner. I'll be buying hand over fist at 9 or 10 dollars because the iphone 7 will definitely have sapphire. Gtat will be back to $20 when the iPhone 7 is revealed in September of 2015. Who knows.....the iPhone 7 might be have sapphire on front and back. Good stock to own. Just not at this point and time.
Sell with impunity. Margins to 35, then to 32, then to 25. Apple will sit at $200 by The time Santa slides down the chimney and burns his #$%$ on all the bag holders' shares.
This is gonna be fun. No reason to buy an iPhone now that 15+ phones will have a fingerprint sensor this year. I'm looking for $250 if Cook decides to stubbornly stick with the 4" display for another year. Sales should drop 30% minimum. Markets are saturated. Apple dropping in n extremely bullish market day in and day out. Can't wait till the s&P corrects 20% to the downside. $400 in a heartbeat. Short with impunity.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Coachd, you'll be eating crow in a couple months. Apple may be a $400 stock long-ter, but short-term aapl will definitely fall below $250. Too many mom and pap types thinking it's a bargain at this price. This message board has more posts in 10 minutes than most stock boards have in a day. I started shorting aapl when i noticed this. Market can stay irrational far far longer than these retail traders can staysolvent. $240 is irrational, $350 isn't. When the market corrects 15-20% you'll see aapl below $300, i'd bet my life on it. Such an easy short!
Sentiment: Strong Sell
You'll own a $200 stock in December. Don't ruin your family's life because of your stupidity.
Apple is killing itself. What do they do for a whole year in Cupertino? Decide to make a phone call ordering a nicer camera fo the iphone and another call ordering some fingerprint sensors. Laughable. So easy to be short here. You longs know what the 5s reaction is gonna be.
