Makes sense. There's probably would have been some legal issues if they decided to just increase the price on the chips unless it was stated in the contract that they can change the price the way they see fit, which would be a terrible contract.

TSMC is in line for chips. Sharp, LG, and others are in line for panels. Is Microsoft going to place enough orders for chips and panels to fill the void of Apple leaving Samsung? No.
And what makes you an expert? You're confusing common sense with indoctrinated wishful thinking.

Most likely the report was by a hedge fund or financial person looking to tank the stock some to get people to sell and buy at a lower price so they can make a quick buck.

Sad but most likely true...

You do realize that you're supporting Samsung by buying Apple products as well, right?

I think what Samsung will do is replace the capacity void Apple has left with it's own demand (Samsung smartphones). That is, as Apple begins to move the newer A-series chip to TSMC, Samsung will retool and use some of that capacity for Exynos.

So you are the only one on this forum that has a right to an opinion. What makes you the expert? Ok, we get it: you prefer throwing your money at an american conglomerate that uses, oops, korean parts!

Apart from TSMC, which will love to take as much business away from Samsung as they can.

Building that kind of plant is not easy. And it's not Apple's business. The most obvious choice is TSMC whose business it is to make chips for anyone who can design them. There are others. And those Mexicans who would have the qualifications to work at that plant would likely be welcomed with open arms in the USA.

What's very funny/amusing is how outraged people were at Samsung for raising their chip prices on Apple and now that the story is false, they still seem outraged. Why?

Q1 results. They just released their Q4 results.
But I agree with your point. And whoever is doing it is remarkably successful. If I wasn't a student with no money, I'd totally invest in Apple right now. Their stock is way undervalued

That's not what you said. You said Samsung will "keep doing just fine" while Apple will have difficulty/time finding another supplier.

Why is it that a supplier in a business where companies are going bankrupt will keep doing fine but the largest single buyer in the world will have trouble? That sounds very much like "indoctrinated wishful thinking" that you have accused another poster of.

You mean iPhones will get suddenly less dependable if they used Hynix or Elpida RAM or NAND instead of Samsung? But they are already doing it and I haven't heard iPhone being less dependable because they aren't using Samsung parts.

Absolutely agreed with your first point but didn't you also claim yourself that Samsung will magically be fine without Apple even though the article said a Samsung VP was let go because he lost some of the Apple business?

That's a bit unfair but we know why Samsung is being propped up by some, it's because they dislike Apple and want to see someone else taking down Apple, and Samsung is their latest hope. At one point it was Microsoft Zune(and now Surface), HTC, Motorola, etc. It's not that they particularly care about Samsung's nationality but just want to see Apple get burn and fall down.

Everybody hated Foxconn and suddenly nobody cared when it stopped being useful as a talking point against Apple. How many were outraged when the Foxconn Nintendo factory was found to be using underaged interns?

May be my fault for making a suggestion that they may still raise prices...may have poked a snake.

Very true. I'm not sure the last time I saw a person post "In my opinion".

You're right. If Apple walked away today Samsung would be completely unaffected. Sorry for being so blind.
