I am long Apple but think its conflict of interest and Apple shares need to rise or fall by normal process not hype and dump its just f%%%ing corrupt and makes a mockery of the entire financial system, pheww I feel better. somebody with a law degree take them for a ride. ( Stock manipulation)
even if they buy a few million phones the real profit is in the rest of the eco system and I bet Apple thinks they are not going to provided the added purchases that USA customers do. So no rush to strike a deal untill its the right one for Apple.
yup I agree, In 2014 when your not staring at the numbers ready to take action you had better set high stops.
with the millions of older phones in place in China Apple can make a killing by expanding the trade in program to Asia and China, would also help with the price gap between Apple and samsung etc.
Compared to all other past technologies the smartphone in the west and asia has achieved a much faster ownership rate, faster than TV or Telephones. Upgrades are even quicker than other technologies as consumers need faster and more capable devices to enter both business and social network era.
I think China will prove far more lucrative than even the most optimistic analyst has guessed (the same ones that thought the iphone would never sell in USA due to cost).
I have estimated based on past adoption and upgrade rates that China will = USA sales inside of 2 years.
Just some joe thats done his homework.
they also miss the point the grey market phones often cost far more than direct from Apple, thats how much they want them, and yes they have the money. The Government of China has little control over the grey market life of the average Chinese citizen they have evolved to survive the communist regimes desire to control all and do in fact have resources far beyond what we in the west think they own on a per capita bases.
Ya dam those manipulating directors making secret inside deals and making such awesome products and being voted top for consumer satisfaction !
so far they have ruined my stock portfolio, turned $30 into $ 570, darn. (oh those other shorties, well most shorties are long when it suits them..)
He quotes T and VZ removing subsidies as reason, Apple could buy them and set its own subsidies?, any reason why not?
Pricing in of China Mobiles value in Apples stock will be slow and steady just like the slow build up of infrastructure of the 4g network. At Present the 4G network does not even cover one city, as it grows so will Apples market.
ho hum Porn ya right like we do not have enough thats free... if that the best option for Google glass they are in more trouble than even I think, wait tell there next report shows yet again the price per click went down... race to the bottom for them.
