 I'm sure it's worth more today 
Sometimes I just say "no". Other times I play them on a bit and ask for their recommendations for stocks that will perform as well, or close. "How should I invest the funds I get from selling the Apple shares?" Lots of mumble-mumble at that point and they soon find a way to end the call.
I occasionally get calls about "excessive concentration" in my IRA. Those $24 (pre-split) shares are doing nicely.
No. I didn't hear that. I think it's worse.
Not necessarily. Lots of things work differently when you embiggen them.  But, to your point, GTAT did not have much experience using even their smaller furnaces. A very serious lack of production experience and it is amazing to me that Apple didn't "get" that right away.

No "utility" designation needed2. if you think that all government is bad, then read this American's description of his experience in France.http://venturebeat.com/2014/11/12/what-france-has-taught-me-americans-are-suckers-who-have-themselves-to-blame-for-crappy-broadband/3. if you think that AT&T and Verizon have your best interests at heart,...
"In related news, the Wall Street Journal reported today that introduction of the new iPhone 7 was being delayed because of "production problems' with the sapphire lenses."
