    • gwinsto: AAPL wouldn't agree if it wasn't benefiting them. We don;t even know who is eating the discount

    • MAdeelA: If this was 3rd/4th gen iPad, your point would make sense. Lots of people prefer the 7.9" size over the 10", and it is not because of $.

    • GaltMachine: "exclusivity" and snob appeal is a big part of this brand. Stuff you don't associate with Walmart. This is a bad sign

    • det9: When the ipad mini was priced higher , AAPL was sold off because it was too expensive. In that context discount pricing should help tomorrow

    • realornot: yes, it will help AAPL somewhat.

    • 1980XLS-2.0: $AAPL puts will be the biggest accessory of all. $$$

    • gwinsto: AAPL puts are the accessory you would want today. Sentiment changes fast and will go the other way again...

    • gwinsto: And when it does, puts are the last thing you'll want..

    • 1980XLS-2.0: Agree, shorting at these levels before earnings, getting a bit risky. Meanwhile, trend is still down.

    • Maria Auziliadora: Now AAPL in the green risky to short it

    • MAdeelA: Shorting AAPL at ~$500 is stupid. You are praying that the market reacts negative to every news. What happened to the analyzing the numbers?
