I don't think Apple is allowed to approve sale prices at third parties. However the discount Apple gives to them is probably way smaller than what other venders give. Any sale price would probably come from the third party retailer's pockets.
Blah blah blah. How can you come to a valid conclusion with limited evidence? And might I add it's not really evidence as Apple didn't release numbers. Btw, smart investors rather have $$$ than units sold as a metric.
Apple did mention the watch outsold the iPhone and iPad did in their first nine weeks. That should be good enough for analysts. After all, even that tidbit is more than what Amazon gives and it's Wall Street's favorite.Btw, WS will speculate even if they had actual numbers.
