The high of last year was an aberration. Look at a 10-year growth chart and this is obvious.

Yep! I completely agree with you. Add Netflix to that list. Though, I will take 3% up, that is right now there. I was afraid that market would take it down for one reason or another. Apple gets judged by completely different book on street. I am surprised all the anal-yst haven't suggested that to increase the Apple Stock value, Apple should break up into different companies! But, I wouldn't be surprised that you will start seeing those kind of suggestion coming up next year.

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.

 

 

My bet is too many people expects CM to be priced in and some even expects a sell the news.  When this doesnt happens the short will get nervous and start covering.  If we get a squeeze watch the price action in the last hour of trading today or during the day tomorrow.

 

So far the shorts are holding, no squeeze yet.

Wondering what is the quota of iPhone that China Mobile must sell.

You're right. "Most" Chinese, not "all" Chinese. There are many nouveau riche Chinese who can and will buy Apple products. These might be the same folks who have houses in the US and China, who send their kids abroad to study and they will probably retire in New Zealand or Australia.

But those who can afford them in China probably out number those who can in the US.

The iPhone is already on 2 of the major national carriers in China.

So what’s wrong with adding the 3rd national carrier?

More carriers is never a bad thing.

Correct. It's a good market to be in. Most growth for US companies is happening outside the US right now.

So how long before we see a Communist Party hammer and sickle symbol next to the Apple logo, like GM/Cadillac did by sponsoring the propaganda film, "The Great Achievement of Founding a Party," dedicated to the 90th birthday of Chinese Communist Party?  :no:

mhm. up 21 points on the day. so much for barely moving.

 

you should apply for an analyst job! :lol: 

 

[edit] then I read your further post grousing about the "mere 2.5%" bump pre-market (and making an impossible supposition regarding google/amazon)... were you just trying to cover for the above prediction? :P

 

Apple bumped 21 points today. To 570. On the potential alone. Up from what, mid-300's a year ago? I'll take that. With no grousing whatsoever.

 

Is anyone predicting $1,000/share come the end of calendar Q1? Maybe. Unless CM sales fall way short of the inevitably overblown analyst expectations...

If anyone was wondering why there have been so few "gold" iPhones available.... no doubt they've been stocking them up for this launch.

Will Apple go above $700 by the end of the 2nd fiscal quarter? Hard to say but, in my opinion, Apple will have to be able to supply CM (and the rest of China) with the amount of 5s iPhones that they need. It seems that Apple is going flat out now, so that might be tricky. If Apple was hoping that the 5c was going to cover a lot of territory in China, well, in my opinion, I just don't think it's what the Chinese people want, at least in the quantities that would really make a difference to Apple's s/p. The 5c will become a distant 4th or 5th place finisher at best. Not exactly what Apple needs to cover extra ground to increase sales in China. Unless, of course, Apple wants to keep the s/p exactly where it is now. Diversifying the lineup with a larger iPhone might be a better proposition than the 5c, at least for the Chinese/Asian market. Not sure about a larger iPad. Also, as someone else said (maybe you), Apple has to introduce yet another line that becomes a spectacular hit. That alone would see the s/p rise $150 - $200.

Never. Apple never sold its soul. In addition, Apple doesn't even authorize ads showing an idevice and a competitor.

Pshh. China isn’t communist. Someone on the Internet told me so.
