It looks like this weeks gap was filled today. Still have one from last week at about 209.
Just a thought.
My thoughts as well. Don't 209 however without a major market-wide correction.
The statement from Apple regarding services and not having a financial impact is comical. In July he bragged about how services will grow following the introduction of Apple +. Not sure why they even responded to GS note. But it does remind me of how TC assured us everything was fine last Oct and then we saw the results in January and the letter he sent out.
A drop to 117 would really be something. That's Sponge's territory!
And just when I thought I might be understanding things, AAPL closes no where near $220. As Fisher said, The Great Humiliator. Ohhh well, it's fun to guess sometimes just the same.
A quick spot check on the online store shows many versions of the 11 to still be shippable on the 20th (looked at black and red), though it looks like most of the mint colored ones are out into October.
On the 11 Pro's, on standard and Max, the ~20 configs I checked were into October, except nearly all sizes of the Gold. I was mainly checking the unlocked. Pro's should be good for the profit margin mix.
The Schmidt comparison is off. We’re Google in this scenario.
And yeah, 🖕🏼 GS. They’ll probably be recommending AAPL to clients at a discount.
You’ve been touting Disney for a long time JD and although I didn’t agree at first I have for awhile. I think it would have been a very strategic purchase. Now how about some NFL streaming.
As a SoCal viewer, I'd like an easy way to actually choose what NFL games I see, instead of the shitty nepotistic Raiders, the Chargers who aren't really our local team, or the Rams whom I've always hated. But the NFL(.com) is charging ridiculous prices to stream a few hours of content a week (like $40 a month!).
As a stockholder, I hate the sports licensing model because compensation isn't done in a prudent, relatively professional model like movies and TV (it's driven by the childish, ludicrous, entitled players unions and the inept, narcissistic owners - who didn't make their money in the industry they run - who enable them). Which is why ESPN is an albatross for Disney and why half of Dodger fans can't see their team play on TV (DirecTV has drawn the line and won't pay the stratospheric cost for the Dodgers' channel). Sports programming is just too expensive and there is no end in sight, and I really think there is a limit to what people will pay to see it.
It's great to see the Soviet-like cable monopoly die (I'm a cord cutter), but the nascent, fractured streaming model is the other extreme. Instead of a bunch of crap we don't want in a Commissar-approved bundle full of Spanish language and other useless nonsense, now the things we want to actually see are all a la carte, which is as much or even more expensive. At some point, the market will likely sort it out and compromises will be made by the content creators for some sort of multi-media conglomerate streaming bundles, but I don't want Apple to be the Enron/Netflix like reseller of it. "The margins suck," as Steve would say. I really don't see how Netflix makes it at its current valuations, but someone has to step up.

mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).
