  • After a valiant effort, Mayor Bloomberg has thrown in the towel and cancelled the New York City marathon this weekend because of disruptions caused by superstorm Sandy. City officials had held out hope that the event could still be pulled off, in a demonstration that the city was on the road to recovery. Unfortunately, the logistical nightmare proved to be more than even New Yorkers were equipped to handle on such a short timeline. [View news story]

  • More on Apple's shakeup: Internet software/services chief Eddy Cue will be in charge of Maps and Siri. Design chief/legend Jony Ive will now also be responsible for "human interface" for Apple's products. Bob Mansfield, recently convinced to cancel his retirement plans, will head a new Technologies unit that will include all of Apple's wireless hardware and chip teams. A search has begun for a retail chief to replace Browett; Tim Cook will head retail in the interim. Federighi's promotion could bring additional moves to "harmonize" iOS and Mac OS.

  • Apple (AAPL -2.6%) is now seeing a decent post-earnings selloff. Aside from the margin issues, the Street is likely concerned about Apple's relatively soft European and Asia-Pac performance. Europe and China's macro problems are one reason, but in light of Samsung's Q3 smartphone sales and recent market share data (I, II), Android competition could be another. U.S. and Japanese sales grew much faster thanks to iPhone share gains - could the Japanese gains finally lead to a deal with NTT DoCoMo? (more) (transcript[View news story]
    if the objective is to buy what nobody wants you can take AAPL out of your universe of things to consider

  • More on Apple: Shares are rebounding today with the help of bullish comments from Goldman's Bill Shope, who declares shares oversold. "We continue to believe the best time to buy Apple’s stock is amid periods of supply-centric concerns," Shope argues ahead of Thursday's FQ4 report, while asserting Apple will be able to raise production and meet demand this quarter. BTIG's Walter Piecyk is more cautious, believing iPhone 5 shortages could translate into lost sales. [View news story]
    "worst case, maybe the share price retreats to $585ish where it gets major support at the 200-day moving average."

    not the worst case. check your complacency at the door

  • Twenty-five years after the October 1987 crash, could it happen again? "It's really different this time. It's much worse," Randall Forsyth writes. In 1987, all it took to ease the pressure on financial markets was to cut interest rates, and there was plenty of room to do so. But today, central bankers have run out of basis points and the eurozone status quo is untenable, meaning that fixing a crash would be a vastly bigger challenge. [View news story]
