Apple is not only rocking your world…
…it’s shaking China like Rottweiler with a rubber ducky.
okay… so that image makes little sense. but, it’s dramatic, and fun.
and, I TOLD you, all of you, collectively, this was going to happen. so, that gives it “foretold” status.
I’m talking about this,
here’s another link (right, → HERE) just in case you can’t sort out that offered above.
I do, in fact, discuss Apple a lot on this Blog. but, that’s because I’m passionate about the company, it’s products, the people (that make and use those brilliant products) around the company, the way it changes our lives, comprehensively, the manner in which it kicks Google’s (silly Android, anyway) and Microsoft’s asses, and the way we can all build wealth because all of that is good. … as in, using your super powers for good, good.
to wit, I gave you a heads-up around that article above when I posted, Apple’s Siri will definitely speak Chinese.
meanwhile, there was some serious profit-taking in the last week that dropped the stock almost one hundred points leading up to Apple reporting it’s numbers at the bell yesterday. just so we are clear, that was financial services insiders taking profits and shorting the stock to create room to buy it back-up ↑ again.
Jon Coriel emailed me Monday saying, “I wish I has listened to you five years ago when you told me to buy Apple. I could have retired by now”.
can you imagine what those people that listened to me back in 2000 are doing, today (remember that 2000 figure as you continue to read this post)?
…what ever. but, Jon is correct.
so… here’s another chest-thumping prediction… I’m still saying that I believe Apple is a $1000 stock – unless it splits before that. but, if it does split, it will still go to the equivalent of $1000, which means it will be a $2000 stock by today’s standard.
don’t take my word for it. just ask over a BILLION (1.324 billion as of Monday) Chinese that understand just how profoundly Apple products are changing the world. how many more people are there in China than we have here in just the United States? is it double? more? well… its actually about three times our own population, just so you know. is it possible Apple could hit the same percentages in China it has in North America?
for it’s best perspective, just go back and pick-up Thomas Friedman’s The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century (and, → here, for a different look) and you just might have that perfect epiphany. Do it!
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
