I really hate the stock market. It's a record number, in what ways is that a disappointment number in the market that's full of solid competitors and is basically saturated?

It's good news for Apple but not customers, prices will rise for iPhones as they'll expect customers to buy just to keep up with the fad. Sad day we'll continue to be mugged for overpriced hardware.


This is not being indecisive lol

Well, that's a growth of zero percent. At least they have stopped shrinking.

Because it's MacRumors and not an investing site; so people think that because it's Apple and they say they had a record quarter, the stock should go up based on their spin instead of facts and reality.

The iPhone is only put on sale by carriers, not by apple.

They want Apple To over ship all their products to create a false sense of reality.

I use them for delivery drivers. Nice for that purpose but definitely too big for real world usage.

Don't get a Note 3.

Apple still doesn't discount it. Retailers who want you to come into their stores do. I bought an iPhone 5s from Best Buy for $224 at Christmas. That was a $75 discount off of Apple's price, and I can guarantee you that Best Buy ate every bit of that.

Wasn't this the holiday quarter ? One should expect the quarter following the holiday quarter to be down.

Sold my mother's stock today at $551.

Sold mine back in December at $555-560.

I love Apple, but my stock decisions are based on making money for myself, not brand loyalty.

Everything wrong with our economy is that people expect uncontrolled, wild growth every year always and forever. When growth slows or contracts for a short period people lose their crap. Infinite growth is impossible.

Solid quarter. $158B cash. Good work!

4.8m Macs. That's the bit I like. The share price doesn't concern me as I'm not a shareholder

Don't get a Note 3.
As a person who uses a Note 3 for real world usage I can assure you your "advice" is biased, subjective and baseless.

So Apple knocks it out of the park and Samsung misses goals.

I'm so excited I'm almost having a physical reaction
