  • Can Apple's Earnings Put Fears To Rest? [View article]
    That is also my opinion : Is there anybody who knows something about Innolux in-cell-technology patented by Apple? These new displays will explain the so called "order cuts" (WSJ) of the "old" display version.

  • Sharp (SHCAY.PK) has "nearly halted production" of displays for the regular iPad as demand shifts towards the iPad Mini and Apple (AAPL -0.6%) attempts to manage inventory, Reuters reports. Many analysts have already forecast the Mini, which is thinner and much lighter than the 4th-gen regular iPad, will account for a majority of iPad sales in Q1. Higher Mini sales benefit display suppliers AUO and LPL. Due to lower price tags, Apple's average gross profit on Mini sales appears to be lower than its average gross profit on regular iPad sales. [View news story]

  • On cue, Apple's (AAPL -2.8%) sell-side fans are defending it following reports of iPhone component order cuts due to weaker-than-expected demand. UBS, one of the first to report of production cuts, says it detects no change to iPhone orders since December, though it worries shares could be pressured near-term. Wells Fargo notes Apple's 65M-unit iPhone 5 display order (per The Nikkei) was "an unrealistic number to begin with." JPMorgan says it only forecast 25M calendar Q1 iPhone 5 builds regardless. Notable Calls: "This sure feels like capitulation, doesn't it?" [View news story]
    ... and new displays from Innolux Corp.(Taiwan’s biggest makers of liquid-crystal displays) with "in-cell"- technology will replace displays for 5s.

  • Apple's (AAPL) shares are -3.4% premarket following reports that the company has cut iPhone 5 component orders for calendar Q1 due to weaker-than-expected demand. That's possibly helping to depress sentiment on the stock-futures market, with the Nasdaq benchmark -0.4%. The Dow is flat and the S&P is +0.1%, while Europe remains mostly in the green. [View news story]
    Perhaps new displays from Innolux with "in-cell"- technology will replace displays for 5s. Here a report in German:

    Don't forget the day traders in Europe, where CFD-trading (contract for difference) is legal.

  • Putting Apple's (AAPL -1.4%) recent moves in perspective: the company entered 2012 with a P/E of 11.53 (not counting its cash balance), and is leaving with a P/E of 11.69. But shares are still up 25% YTD, thanks to the earnings growth seen over the interim. Earnings are expected to rise 17% in FY13 (ends in September), and revenue 22%. [View news story]
    In Europe trading with CFD (contract for difference) is legal.
    It would be very interesting, in which dimensions this trading strategy could manipulate the stock price.
    A realistic or not realistic? example:
    short-CFD-trade with 100’000 shares at 510: Margin for trading is 5’100’000 USD (because leverage is 10 you pay only 10% of the share price), the stock moves from 510 to 508, close of this trade position at 508, profit of this trade 2 x 100’000 = 200’000.-, realized in perhaps 5 or 10 minutes.
    The great CFD-players do so with the so called “millisecond”-trading (computer automated) and they prefer volatile stocks.
    I think this “market players” manipulate Apples share price on a large scale.
    Google saxotrader and you can run a demo cfd-trading.

    100 shares @510 = margin 5100 USD (=leverage 10) + 20 USD fee (see Saxobank) :10 points up = 10x100 = +1000
