  • Einhorn's Greenlight Wins Injunction Against Apple, Making A March Dividend Increase More Probable [View article]
    Oppenheimer is a bean counter. And what do bean counters do? They count beans. Highly overrated.

  • Apple (AAPL -0.9%) roundup: 1) David Einhorn has scheduled a 2PM ET call to discuss his preferred stock proposal (webcast). Ahead of the call, he asserts the proposal is "a lot better" than a standard dividend or buyback hike. 2) As iWatch rumors grow, AppleInsider uncovers an Apple patent for a watch with a flexible touchscreen and a spring that allows it to conform to a user's wrist. 3) AU Optronics (AUO) has reportedly resolved its iPad Mini panel yield issues, and is working on the next-gen version. It might not be a coincidence the Mini is now listed as "in stock" on Apple's site. [View news story]
    Happy to hear AUO finally got their sh*t together. How did that slide off the rails in the first place? Ambitious design, poor vendor selection, lack of QA/QC?

  • The Foxconn recruiting freeze hitting Apple (AAPL) in the premarket is not related to a slowdown in iPhone 5 production, reports Bloomberg. Instead it's more about adjustments having to do with the Chinese New Year. Off about 2% earlier, AAPL now -0.8%[View news story]
    Identify and prosecute the source of all false rumors! This is beyond absurd.

  • This Could Be Why Apple Shares Are Down [View article]
    Take your 1k share sale to a price of $700 and redo the math. This yields a totally different result. For tax selling it is very reasonable that sales were at much higher price than $520.

  • Apple (AAPL) reverses a sizable early decline and goes flat premarket as Gene Munster says his team's checks show iPhone 5 supplies are improving, and it may be just 2-3 weeks before the phone is "consistently available to consumers." [View news story]
    I'm a 5 year Apple long and product consumer and I am more than a little miffed that Apple did not have a handle on the complexities of assembling the iPhone5.

    Hopefully these problems will be resolved with the next iteration that they should be developing now in order to meet the next rollout Timmy.

  • The iPhone 5 is still supply-constrained at U.S. Apple Stores, says Piper's Gene Munster after polling 70 of them. He also found ongoing shortages at AT&T and Verizon, though Sprint's situation is said to be improving. Those comments are probably contributing to today's Apple (AAPL -2.7%) selloff, especially since Munster's Oct. 4 report on shortages proved accurate. On a more positive note, Munster's poll of 730 U.S. consumers found 55% of those planning to buy a smartphone indicating they want an iPhone 5. [View news story]
    Just got ours delivered from ATT. 21 days on the button.

  • More on Apple: It looks as if the iPad Mini, premium pricing and all, is off to a decent start: the white model sold out hours after pre-orders commenced, and shipping times now stand at 2 weeks. The black model is still available. Digitimes recently claimed the Mini's relatively high pricing was due to low yields for its cutting-edge GF2 touchscreen tech (previous). If that rumor is accurate (a big if), it could mean a price cut will arrive once yields improve and costs fall. [View news story]
    Increase the price! This is not a charity. We need margin.

  • Investors seem nervous ahead of Apple's (AAPL -1%) FQ4 report. Not only is Apple trading lower, so are component suppliers Cirrus Logic (CRUS -4%), OmniVision (OVTI -2.2%), Broadcom (BRCM -2%), and SanDisk (SNDK -1.7%). Expectations definitely aren't where they were on Sep. 21, the day the iPhone 5 launched and Apple made its all-time high. (earlier[View news story]
    Might concern the Traders but not the Investors.
