Thanks, Steve. The AAPL Tree is now on Apple News (iOS + web-readable and SOON on macOS) at apple.news/TuY-CX_-jRziryK895rDu6g - for a jumble of AAPL fundamentals, tech comment and a bit of AAPL chart nonsense | the ol' blog's at aapltree.wordpress.com | archived blog's on Medium @aapltree | Twitter @aapltree
This is how I'd like it to play out. Q1: blowout earnings > $15. Corrected to 13 weeks instead of 14, that'd be 25% EPS increase. Q2: another YOY great earnings. Apple will not have deployed a lot of its stuff until January for most of the world, while the iPhone/iPad mini is only getting 2/3 weeks in most of the world as well. Q2/Q3: deal with CM Q3: iTV announcement Great holiday season, etc., and we sell the soon-to-be-purchased Jan calls/CBSs before expiry.

Imagine a company having 170 billion in the bank, no debt and trading at a discount to the overall market. Never happen right?
