And if the day pans out well when do we hit $211.86? (I think that’s the magic number)
sorry i don't get it... what's magic about it?
edit: $1T market cap? (if so, not sure it's so magical... the number keeps changing as number of shares is reduced... i seem to remember it was below $200 not so long ago to hit $1T market cap)
Was being a bit tongue in cheek. Nothing ‘magical’ about it but probably a psychological marker in the market. I mean come on... it got the market pretty excited last time, even though it is just an arbitrary high water mark. And yes the question mark implied I’m not sure what the actual share price is to hit $1T but it looks like is somewhere around the high $211’s (edit... actually I meant to add another question mark at the end...)
This event wasn't one I was particularly excited to see but watched it anyway. I have to say the segment on AppleTV+ is the best thing I've seen from Apple since the introduction of the iPhone. Maybe better. . ymmv.
I've been proposing that Apple acquires Disney for years. It would give them ABC and ESPN, as well as the whole Disney library.
But in other news, the BIG, BIG deal here is the credit card. If the card is widely accepted Apple becomes a banking stock too. This could be REALLY big depending on adoption. With no fees for anything, and maximum flexibility for consumers, the card is very attractive. I wonder how long it will take the pundits to recognize this.
And finally, I can't remember the last time I was here, but I was all cash for a while until APPL hit $170 going down. I bought into it going down and am happily in the green now.
I think the CC will depend on the rate, if it's amazingly low that will get them some good PR. The instant cash back is really the major plus to this, there's plenty of 1-3% cards out there but most either have fees or are tied to a crappy points system or something else. In general the rate shouldn't really matter to the upscale clientele since ideally it's paid off monthly anyway, but still... The real reason for the card is to drive more use of Apple Pay. The fact it's a sweet looking titanium card with a nice minimalist aesthetic is an excellent bonus as well.
It will be interesting to see what the price and subject matter of the arcade and tv+ turn out like. Hopefully they get more providers and content on board between now and when they roll it out. And a nice understated hardware drop of the charging mat would be nice too, like the upgrades from last week on hardware.
Apple is teaming with Goldman Sachs and MasterCard on the CC but not clear to me if it can be used everywhere the MasterCard is used. That was hinted at in the presentation but not clear what they mean. Today many places that recognize MasterCard don't accept Apply Pay, will that change?
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).
