F.) Steve Jobs is dead
G.) Apple is the new BlackBerry
3.) Apple is actually doomed by inking this deal.
4.) But Google does robots now

You could not think of a few positive reasons?  You are really dumb.

Pretty sure his post was a sarcastic jab at stock market analysts, Sheldon.

The positive aspect of this getting delayed into January is that we will be able to separate out the Christmas sales from the Chinese sales since they both will fall into separate quarters.

The media will find a way to put a negative spin on this. Already many of the headlines are referencing the fact that the announcement didn't mention any terms or prices. Morrow will be a day when any other stock would have gone up double digits (look at BlackBerry going up 15% on Friday even though they announced a $4 billion loss), yet I'll be surprised if Apple is up more than 1%.

I really am one of the faithful, stockholder, and customer, just got my LTE Retina Mina, completing the trifecta, iP5s, iPad Air and the Retina Mini.

 

The NYT already threw water on the deal, used some of the stuff I posted and threw in that "Gasp, Apple is in 5th place in China now"

Perfect for a nice Q2 boost.

This may be perfect timing because it would have been difficult to deliver holiday iPhones to the world's smaller ISP's + huge intro deliveries for China Mobile.

 

Go Apple, Go CM.

That is a big effen deal. Chinese New Year is a monster holiday, like Christmas on steroids.

The one thing Apple has left on the table is a larger screen phone which Apple most likely would address on 2014. How Apple would rule the world is anyone's guess.

I think a short squeeze would only happen if it was found that China Mobile had committed to 100 million phones for each of the next three years.

 

You can't tell me that this deal wasn't expected to some degree by the analysts. Some of this news was already factored into the share price. The stock only went down 2% when it was learned that somebody jumped the gun. I think that if the analysts thought that the deal was actually dead then the stock would be well below $500 by now.

 

There will be a bump up in the next week but I think the really healthy push will be when q1 is announced alongside a forecast that CM sales have been better than anticipated and will be maintained as such over the next two quarters.

I predict the public's love of Apple will finally overpower the media's love of bashing Apple.
post #63 of 99

great news! my tip is 5% up today so AAPL can finish today about 570-580 and once details on deal will be known, stock price can go up or down little more.

Bingo and bingo. Apple gets to spread out a large number of sales over 2 quarters. It's almost like a launch followed by another launch.

I wonder if Apple will announce opening week pre-orders/sales for China Mobile?

Getting announced right before the quarter ends on a Sunday seems like this was all planned, and not simply both companies had finally came to an agreement. But why this Sunday and not next Sunday? They usually like a full weekend in the old quarter for new product releases so perhaps it's based on the same model, but why they would do that is beyond me.

On Bloomberg this morning they mentioned that Samsung Electronics shareprice is down over 60% in the past 12 months. Why hasn't this made more news? If Apple's stock was down over 60% in the last 12 months it would be huge news.

Yes, I should've clarified: it's the biggest >CHINESE< buying holiday of the year.

 

I was in Hong Kong this weekend and stopped into an Apple store (Hysan Place). Suddenly, all employees were clapping, and one employee was carrying a Mac Pro. I asked, but they have none to sell. It is just for display at that time (it was running, and you could play with it). That thing is small and sleek. I expected it to be bigger. It is high-quality machined aluminum everywhere.

 

I also noticed that 80% of people in Hong Kong either have an iPhone or a Galaxy Note (close to 50-50). Hardly anything else (no S4, a few Lumias and HTCs). So once Apple releases a large screen iPhone, I think the Note may be in trouble in Hong Kong...

Bloomberg. Isn't that the company who posted the obituary of Steve Jobs while he still was alive?

I don't see a 60% stock drop.

Maybe it is at 60% of its high this year... THAT I could see in the chart. Even that would be cause for the Samsung crisis meeting about three weeks back.

I can hear the whine over the renting of garments: "I don't understand it, we practically Xeroxed Apple's iPhone and STILL they outsell us everywhere!"

Weird. They had a charge of both Apple and Samsung up and showed Samsung down 60% in the last 12 months. I thought it was odd too.

Wow so Hong Kong gets the Mac Pro not US stores? I was at the Mall of America store last Friday and sales person I spoke to said he had no idea when they would be getting a Mac Pro in store.

AAPL is up about 2.5% premarket. Yawn. If this was Google or Amazon stock would be up 10%. 1rolleyes.gif

A Forbes drivel already says it is too little too late, and that even if the analysts predict 15-30 Millions more units, it will likely be even not reach the lower end.

 

you cannot invent this sort of BS.

 

I wont like to such absurdities but that is remarkable that someone can write that.

The deal got more than a 3% bump. You just can't view the situation through a day trader's eyes.
