This morning on CNBC Joe Kernan asked what happens to Apple when someone builds a better mousetrap. And then mentioned Motorola. Is that what Wall Street is thinking now, that Apple could become blackberry at any minute? But why are they thinking this now and not a month ago or three months ago? What's so special about now?
Haptic feedback is going to be really cool. I might even upgrade my 5S if the reviews prove too enticing. A new Apple TV....so many of us are on the verge of upgrading. That one is low-hanging fruit.
The next Apple watch might remove its tether.
Apple could push out a far more aggressive upgrade to the iPad and iMac lines. Every now and then we get unusually impressive upgrades that are very hard to resist.
Apple could cave to certain squeaky wheel investors and ramp up their buyback program.
Genius, well-respected wall street analysts could churn out lower expectations that Apple easily blows past, triggering an impressive recovery to new highs. This will certainly pan out by the end of the year so fund managers can pad their returns.
On the other hand, if these new iPhones and iPads are sort of meh and don't trigger an upgrade cycle, then we might be in for a longish ride down.
I had the misfortune of working for CNBC for a few years - it should come with a viewer warning - conjecture + mindless irrelevance = ad revenue
