Yesterday's pin clinched the third green week in a row, as relatively meager as it was, and six out of seven. I am not expecting much movement in the coming week unless there is serious leakage before next Tuesday's earnings call. It is also possible that there may be some figures, or at least guesses, regarding China sales before their upcoming New Year holiday.
I am not an accountant, and don't even play one on TV, so I will not presume to predict the effect of Apple's $1B lawsuit against Qualcomm. If I were a trader, however, one would think Intel should benefit in some way.
I keep hoping that Apple will announce new iMacs in February, as our current two year old unit is one of the worst we have ever owned. Perhaps some day I will show my dark side and relate the farcical experience when I took it in for evaluation last year.
After a brutal winter last year, we in Boston are grateful for what has been a relatively mild and storm free one so far. Now I hope that I haven't jinxed us.
I take Apple's action against Qualcomm as postivie news that they have more confidences in other suppliers (eg Intel) or even better, are perhaps developing and are close to releasing an in-house version.
Rumour has it that iOS11 will finally have group FaceTime calling. Welcome news and long, long overdue.
Made a nice premium on the $120 calls I sold last week
Please do not take the article as a political statement. I am only interested in what it says about how we process information. What caught my attention here was how well this explains the pervasive beliefs about Apple. It implies that the pervasive FUD attacks of the past 10 years work, despite there obvious inconsistencies. I am afraid that Google and Samsung understood this all along. This explains the parrot like response I get from brokers when I ask their opinion about Apple. All the memes are repeated... failure to innovate, to dependent on one product, we have all heard them ad nauseam, but what has been a puzzle was that when you refute these, it doesn't change opinions. Again, please do not see this as a political post. If it helps, just substitute Hillary every time the article says Trump. But do read it. I think this has real implications for how we should view Apple as an investment.

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
