Apple's stock price responds bullishly to unveiling of Apple iPhone 5
posted by Alan F. / Sep 12, 2012, 9:51 PM
You might recall that last year's Apple iPhone 4S introduction was considered disappointing with no change in screen size or design. Last October 4th, the day the Apple iPhone 4S was announced, the stock was $372.50, down $2.10 on the day. Now that the Apple iPhone 5 has been released, the next big event for Apple shareholders could be the next earnings report due on October 15th. Also expected sometime next month is the unveiling of the Apple iPad mini. Both of those events are capable of moving the stock sharply in either direction.

This always happens to Apple stock on announcement day. And, even when the herd is disappointed, they all rally behind each other because they know not doing so would mean that their precious stock investments would be totally and utterly annihilated; it's like when everyone rallied against George W to re-elect him, they knew it was wrong but they wanted to show a united front. Same united front here.

When you have set a certain president with yourself, you must remain at that level or forfeit the command. I feel Apple grew too big, too fast in the last 7 years. It has usually held very low marketshare most of its 30 year tenure. The very person that brought his vision to an ailing company, is gone. They now have been dealt the huge task of retaining this position. With Steve gone, I don't feel it has the ingredients to hold on to the top position no matter how big it is. The company was founded by Steve and built around him. He lived Apple and Apple followed him. He was the common denominator in Apple's most celebrated moments. John B.

The phone itself is not everything. You need a strong ecosystem to be successful. Just look at Amazon tablets, they are very poor compared to N7 but many will buy them b-c of Amazon online store. Nokia must go with Android in parallel with WP to be successful, with all innovation Nokia has shown it's not too late.

i had to reply this... it's Nokia's fault... it brought the best late... it disregarded Meego and N9... the only good thing it did was remain proud of it (did not go with Android) and that's why i will remain with Nokia... samystic

why so bothering about "Thumb(s) Down". Just say it. It is the net, anyone or anything can just thumbs you down to abuse or get abused by u. So better ignore it and just say whats in ur mind. In the net, it is not matter bout the status, you get so many thumbs down even you said a very objective thought. Just ignore it and be u.

Am I the only one who thinks the design could have been a little better thought out? It looks way too tall to me.

That's all people care about with Apple; stock prices instead of phones. I don't know how good or how bad Samsung is doing in their homeland but I now their kicking Apples butt on their home court. Apple is destined to screw up and the walls will crumble down. Apple is going to stick with that display and body for 2 years minimum while Android phones sale like hotcakes. And the only one to blame is Apple.
