    • Bob de'Long: You dropped it! You said that you didn't drop it. Battery unseated sounds like a acceleration/deceleration thing, e.g., drop

    • realornot: I believe iPhone new design is a blunder + horrible map direction makes you miss your appts or worse off the cliff.

    • realornot: I am currently shorting AAPL. Will load more orders on the short side.
      10/3/12
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: Samsung trades in Korea or OTC or part of EWY, all kinds of warnings & legislation. Careful grasshoppers.

    • Hillbilly Stock Star: Maps to me is shaving cut, I have suggest to AAPL upgrades for truck drivers.

    • Hillbilly Stock Star: How exactly do you plan to go long samsung?
      10/3/12
    • realornot: I am making technical trades on AAPL & GOOG so will stay on the short side. I also see Apple will make another mistake with its ipad mini.

    • realornot: It is all casino money. I will jump off if both resume its climb. I will be heavily on the short side on the next return.
      10/3/12
    • Dr. Kris: Hill: OK, my bad. Samsung does have an OTC stock here (SSNLF) but thought it was more heavily traded. If it had an ADR, I'd be all over it.
      10/3/12
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: Fido & MBAIF.OB SBUX girls raging GOOG bulls, seem impressed with new stuff?
      10/3/12
    • Dr. Kris: I wonder why the heck it doesn't have an ADR...
      10/3/12

    • Hillbilly Stock Star: You just got to dig really really deep........
      10/3/12
    • Dr. Kris: Samsung is a huge company. Not sure why large foreign co's trade on pink sheets here. Must be a reason--intellectual property issues?

    • Hillbilly Stock Star: Mostly USA accounting, Nestle same but I am Ok with numbers but different standard.
      10/4/12
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: South Koreans who actually owns what, did they invent rehypothication?
      10/4/12
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: imo Insider ownership disclosure more detailed in US.
      10/4/12
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: Well too if you have to disclose could give some competitors insight.
      10/4/12
    • Dr. Kris: But if they don't have any US stock presence, why is there US accounting? Because they supply/partner with US co's?
      10/4/12
    • Dr. Kris: You also have a good point on disclosure. Don't want to provide the enemy with more info.

    • Hillbilly Stock Star: NYSE rules etc vastly different OTC.
      10/4/12
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: Crazy Old guys asked Nestle for years to NYSE list, they said, no.
      10/4/12
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: Heard big boys did "Deep Dive" on Nestle numbers in like 99 or so everthing came back straight up.
