What would that same truck in front of your car (twice) be telling you?
Same thing, over and over again, morning, noon and nite?

LMAO!  This happened to me on Christmas Day heading to my friends in NH for Christmas dinner. Same Maine black pickup truck going to @ 12:30 and from @8:30.  


I know it’s the “men in black” following me.

So if the Chinese really block future sales of the iPhone, and China is 20% of the device revenue, and the iPhone makes up half of Apple sales, then in theory the drops could continue.... until the stock is off about 10%?

But...  why would anyone think China stopping iPhone sales is a temporary thing?


I dislike that people anthropomorphize the stock market (“It’s optimistic today”) but I’m gonna do it: I think there’s the simplistic panic of “uh oh!!!” And the sell-off. Then, seeing the price drop a little, folks start to buy and then the price recovers a bit. They probably recognize that the primary product(s) isn’t at issue, but there’s a contractual snafu. And Apple has enough reserve capital and creative folks that it won’t fold, but will likely find a way around/through it. So, eventually, things will change for the positive.

Impressed me. Depends on how you want to frame it. The drop, to me, means that it’s temporarily much cheaper than it was recently - not 6 months ago.

5.7% drop - not 10%, so not literally "decimated".  I'm just being a word nerd though.

At today's close, the stock is up 2% for the past 30 days, 20% for the last 6 months, and 46% YTD. 

"Decimated" and "on sale" might be slight exaggerations.

You ever wonder how China got so strong so fast? Theft of information, theft of intellectual property, theft of everything, because communism, what’s yours is mine comrade. If you can’t think for yourself steal what you can with all the money from theft build your utopia. Then it’s solar system domination!

   Bwahahahaha!
