Nice to have a solid week, especially in the face of the unrelenting FUD. With the skepticism about the XR and iPhone in general, combined with the total panic over the revenue forecast being lowered from incredible to outstanding, it should be relatively easy to provide better than expected results on the 29th, but as we have seen before reality can be totally ignored by the tech press and pundits. Obviously, the change in reporting metrics will leave analysts even more helpless than usual.

Well this was in the context of an already brutal selloff but nice to see the stock "back" to where it was before the pre-announce letter from Tim Cook on revenue miss. Will be a very interesting earnings week. Feels like it could go either way, based on guidance and the conference call w/analysts. Thoughts?
I never try and play earnings up or down - like most of us here, already down too much. My trade on the brutal correction was a buy a bunch of AAPL to offset dividends for the next 5 years at around 151 on margin (something I very rarely do) but felt prudent. Hoping for better weeks/months ahead as we reset. The one silver lining in all of this must be for management to light a fire under them in terms of upping their game on releasing new services, esp. the streaming TV and/or media (magazines, news) options.
We already pay for subscriptions to the LA times, NY times, and Wall st. journal, and would gladly trade that for a news bundle from AAPl if they could create it.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

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
