    Thats according to Cnn(6% share decline in the 2 days since the cut) :eek:

    For 8 billion Steve Jobs could have given away 35million iphones(est $225 cost each)

    Which would have gone over better with its customers? :D

    :confused: The question was serious, and the answers were interesting, especially considering how the media spun the event.

    Sorry, I'm not picking on you. I don't think the CNN article was "all in good fun" though. Just another effort to assign arbitrary explanations.

    Are we going to see news items on the fact that Apple's stock has roughly tripled in value over the last year?

    Probably not!

    The subprime nonsense took us down 40 points, and Apple came roating back. This pullback is just another blip in the road until we hit 180 by Christmas.

    exactly. I saw a news story on youtube back from Jan when the iphone was just introduced and their stock price was at 90 dollars. Its somewhere around 135 or so if I remember correctly. Not a bad investment in 9 months.

    Yup. It's not that bad news or stocks dropping in value should be hushed up or not reported.

    But you need to keep some context in these discussions and look at the trends.

    $8 billion on paper is awfully different than $8 billion cash. Unless you bought on the high and sold on the dip, it didn't cost you a penny.

    All that matters is what you buy at and what you sell at...everything else is irrelevant.

    No..thats a very logical thread to start

    OP-Sales of iPhone will increase, if Apple hits that goal of 1% stock will go up tons!

    If the profit numbers don't disappoint. The analysts will be examining them with an electron microscope, especially now, looking for any signs that sales weren't quite up to expectations (theirs, not Apple's), and for evidence of the price cut's impact on margins. One of the reasons the markets were so giddy about AAPL was the margins on the iPhone were purported to be huge.

    Thanks, btw. I don't understand why some objected to that poll.
