> , it does make you stop to wonder WHY he added the word "Fresh".

Clicks = money

Fresh = click bait

I for one though, am delighted to see taxpayers pay for these an ever larger court system judging ever more arcane disputes between billion/trillionaire companies. I'm sure it encourages more to come and and ever ever larger system of highly paid highly pensioned bureaucrats.

Job creation!

Its ironic with this low unemployment rate... we still see ever larger groups of homeless persons... no one can figure it out.

Just a couple of random thoughts this morning.

With the price of Apple so high in absolute terms, a 1% move means share price changes over 2.5 dollars per share. Seems somewhat mind boggling for someone that has been in Apple for over 20 years.

Relative to the rest of the market, I don't think Apple is really overpriced but I do think the market in general, and Apple as well, is going to consolidate at some point in time.

On balance, I think Cook has done a good job taking over the company. Cook, and Apple, haven't been perfect, but overall, he has guided Apple well through plenty of mine fields which may have been more difficult for Jobs to navigate.

Overall I would say you are correct about Cook, with some large caveats along the way.

On the downside, I would say Cook has been slow to react to the falling unit sales numbers for the iPhone and to push or inspire the executive team to produce other successful products to help with revenues, but he's a bean counter at heart, not a visionary like Jobs.

On the positive side, people seem to forget when Jobs was in charge, he was adamantly against splitting AAPL stock or paying a dividend to shareholders, and I propose we'd still have neither one if Jobs were CEO.

Short of shareholder revolt about the dividend and the massive cash hoard Apple would now be holding, I contend AAPL would currently be priced around $1,700 a share and have hundreds of billions of dollars in the bank under Jobs.

China Renaissance bullish on Apple
By: Clark Schultz, Dec. 9, 2019

China Renaissance initiates coverage on Apple
(NASDAQ: AAPL) with a Buy rating.

The view from the Beijing-based firm on Apple
is that the hardware business is still a cash cow
given the company's leading position in the high-
end market with the iPhone and revenue is still
stable in the iPad and Mac segments.

Analyst Jason Sun sees other revenue potential
from wearable and services products outside of
airpods and the Apple Watch.

"Apple is expected to launch its AR Glass early
next year, further diluting the revenue contribution
from the traditional hardware business. Meanwhile,
unlike major Chinese peers whose services revenue
is largely reliant on advertising and games, we believe
Apple's services revenue generation base is more
stable and diversified. With a steadily growing user
base and large upside potential on ARPU given the
diversified sources, we expect services to be a
strengthening pillar of growth for Apple," notes Sun.

China Renaissance's price target of $342 is 25.7X
the FY20 EPS estimate and well-above the average
sell-side PT of $260.63.
