    Each statement I made is true. No attempt was made to refute a single one.



    Name calling and insults are supposed to earn a two-week vacation here.

If the smart money wants to sell lots of high-priced shares, the way to do it is to get gullible buyers to bid them up.



    Smart money my arse. Smart money is responsible for the crash. If we had engineers as smart as "smart" money no bridge would stand.

    Insider money maybe.



    These activations are of the 4S. It would only be a replacement if the first 4S were a dud. Otherwise it is a sale.

    I don't know what you mean by replacement phones. If you mean replacing bad, or broken ones, keep in mind that very few get broken, as Apple has one of the lowest failure rates. But even so, failure rates are in the low single digits, so they aren't of much concern. But phone companies have stated that activations are of new phones.



    What do you know of finance? It's easy to say what you have, but you're wrong.

    This would be a far more effective FUD point if AAPL wasn't above where it was two weeks ago...

    I was under the impression that in the time period following Apple's announcement there would be no i5 until at least 2012, Apple investors lost around $30,000,000,000.00. The stock is down about $30 from its peak at $425, and there are about a billion shares outstanding. All round numbers.



    That is a huge amount of money.

    Sure. But look at the few weeks before that drop. AAPL investors made about $50,000,000,000.

    That is a lot of money!

    Do yourself a favor. Forget about short term swings in the market. Look at Apple's stock price over the last year. Last 5 years. Look at Apple's profit growth over the last year. Five years.

    Then think about the future. Much to your chagrin (and your employer's as well, no doubt) Apple customers return over and over. They make satisfied customers and they lose very few comparatively. And they are gaining new ones all the time both in the developed world and in the nascent developing markets.



    FUD doesn't stick to that...
