Wall Street pleased by high-profit pricing of Apple's new Retina iPad mini, iPad Air - Page 2

post #41 of 47

Wall Street Analysts and media people who attended the Apple event....  hmmm.

 

If you watched the streaming video feed of the show and saw the people in the audience it would just re-enforce the idea that those people are a bunch of d-bag posers.  As in "All Things D-Bag".   

 

And if you looked close you could have spotted the "Double D's" - those media types who have also tried to get rich off of writing stories and books about Steve Jobs.

 

They are not in any shape or form "essential services" in our society.

Yes... you and I know that...but thought I'd note to preclude doomsayers who will try to use this FUD to tear Apple down.

Yeah, how about a retina-like desktop resolution, too, while we're at it.

Push push push this slow beast of an industry forward!!

Remember when considering what Wall Street consider as important.

 

If your not making making money then you have to sell more than another else and have the largest market share. Thus give up profits for shipping more than anyone else. If you're not doing that then you better have higher margins than anyone else. Selling less if okay as long was your margins are higher than anyone else.

 

The problem is Apple sits in the middle of these two paradigm which analysis hate, Apple does not sell more than everyone in all cases at 10% margins nor do they get 60% to 80% margins.

$299 for a tablet is a fair price.  The resale for the iPadMini is $170.  If you net out resale value the iPadMini's are cheaper than the smaller and slower Nexus7, Galaxy-whatever


You are right, so of course Apple made it $399.

yes, yes, no...I can't see how margins can go up in near future (like 18 months).  Maybe slightly increase due to a lock in a new product category (like watch or tv)...but I don't see it.  But I'm all ears.
