Could be. Just guessing that their excess cash gets distributed as a huge dividend back to the state to finance the country. I haven't looked up their proven reserves vs. those owned/licensed by XOM.
Reinforces the problem with relying too much on Wiki. It's always useful to compare to peer companies when valuing an entity and ask the question "what's unique?". Exxon-Mobile (XOM) has well over $400 B in revenue and is highly profitable. 2x+ estimated Saudi Aramco (SA) revenue. Not sure of SA's profits. XOM has a market cap

LOL-everybody knows a new iPhone is coming out soon. But how about the other products they're keeping secret?
Couple of things that make this fake are: 1) The microphone jack placement and 2) the thickness . You can tell this just by looking at the size of the device around the input jack for the microphone/headset. It is the same thickness as current models. Also the placement of that Jack on the bottom is not really not going to occur. I have to thing those holes for the microphone and the speaker are highly unlikely. Can you say "lint"? Nine of it makes sense.
LOL
Well said.
There are a lot of devices outside the USA, but also, inside the USA Apple sells half of the smartphones, plus iPod touches and iPads. No doubt Apple should be most popular at an airport in Florida. A lot of evidence around the net suggest about 1/2of Android phones are really used more like feature phones than like app phones. That should further skew wi-fi data to Apple.
It's a great quarter for Apple. Just not for the stock.
Yup, despite great growth, a disappointment for the stock. This really speaks to an overestimate on international growth for the iPhone. They need China Mobile. Also, carrier pricing in Europe favors Android. Nevertheless, the ramp up on the iPad suggests that it is not long before iPad profits equal iPhone profits. 2 years?
