I dont think the TRUE potential of China is baked into aapl share price yet. All signs point towards a MASSIVE growth story there. Everyone keeps asking me how apple can sustain its growth, and I love being able to answer them with one word: China... ~1,300,000,000 people-and the apple story there has been spelled out for us already... aapl will double over the next 2 years because of it.... imo
I guess I was confused as well... The headlines are quite misleading... But those numbers are still awesome regardless of who was purchasing the apple devices.. I wonder if android was still at 700,000 per day and if we can infer anything from that number with regards to apple devices activated... I did a quick calculation using the percentage markets shares and assuming android was at 700,000 and I got some absurdly large number for iOS activations... Im sure...

Correct. Nice to know that some can read these reports objectively.
Let me explain this so that a 5-year old can understand:
If there are 3 people, and 1 of...
If we are even in the ball park of the previous quarter's numbers, VZ represented 2 out of 17 million iphones. Lets make it an even 12% to error on the side of caution. Now if 4.2 million VZ iphones is around 12% of this quarter's total, we have 35 million iphones sold.... woooow.!
ummmm, I think AAPL will go up if that is the case... This could be the moment we have been waiting for here...!!!!
