    So apple went up by 20Billion in 1 day because of the deal. While there been massive decline in iphone sales in US ( is the biggest) and EU region.
    With a mkt cap of 530Billion and rev of 170B and PE of 14. Apple future growth is very shaky due to the saturation of its products and current valutions. See below even if apple stays at these levels what the company sales should be.
    2014 sales : 1.14*170B = 194B (expected)
    2015 sales : 1.14 * 194 = 220B (expected)
    2016 sales : 1.14 * 221 = 252B (expected)
    2017 Sales : 287B
    2018 Sales : 327 B

     

    Does anyone really think they can pull this of being a hardware company and mkt getting saturated. That is why fidelity the biggest share holder laast has bailed out ( about 70% of its holding ) and Goldman is also selling out. The main buyers are the Index funds as they are forced to buy no matter what the valuations are.
    Next crisis is likely going to come from ETF as everyone is piled on to spy, qqq dia, iwm (index funds). So wonder who even dare to step in front of these when the selling starts.

    More adequate price for APPL in what market sees is $1,000/share just like Google. APPL is truly underpriced right now

    @1000$/per share the mkt cap will be 900B plus close to a trillion. I am willing to borrow at 10% to then bet against apple fro all 900Billion. This pure insanity with financial media robbing the public by driving the heard to what they know is going to happen in a year or so. price of the stock does not matter its the mkt cap and future growth which are all in downside for apple may be just this one qtr is the last one. Do not get ne wrong I have some apple products but I see no reason to go buy one more.

     

    can it go up another 5% or 10% may be but its a bet I am will not to make. Investors have nto leart a thing from 2001 and 2007 crash still belive the media like CNBC, bloomberg, retures all are just paid for to push stock.

    Will be interesting to see how the deal between Foxconn and BlackBerry will end up impacting Apple's bottom line.

     

    If the bb10 phones are successful in Asia then it could force Apple to decrease it's margins as Foxconn would have leverage to raise prices for manufacturing Apple's phones and tablets.

    Also if the stock went up by 4% about 20B in one day on the news where they expect to sell 20Million phone(which I would be really surprised if they did on CM) that's about 20M * 700$ = 14Billion all of it is capture in one days rise in the stock. If want to make money stop beliving what these analyst and CNBC folks tell you. Read the financial statements. Main street needs to do the homework first before buying a single stock based on media reports.
