AAPL Intraday Updates (Archive)

  • Posted: 05 October 2011 09:12 PM #121

    CNBC is interviewing WSJ reporter. They are saying that Cook was carefully hand picked and hired by Jobs and that Jobs kept him close.  Steve Jobs’ true legacy will be if he truly has set the company up in his own vision - a vision that will allow the company to carry on and excel for years to come. 

    I feel comforted in that Steve Jobs hand picked his successor. I have faith in his judgment and that he left us in good hands.  Hopefully, investors will feel the same.  It is a solid company…thanks again, Steve.

    I’m not sure if this has been posted but it is remarkable. Back in 1987 Apple forecast the “knowledge Navigator” and missed its implementation by…...a week.

    That’s so cool, thanks for sharing.  I wonder what they are projecting for 20 years from now???

    But that would possibly be beyond “singularity.”  That’s a wild concept… anyone on this board into that?

    Suffice it to say, Steve Jobs could not have the left the company in better hands or in a better positioning. 

    These hands include, to give one example, all of the top execs at Apple.

    There’s much more to it than that but we can save that for tomorrow or another day.

    It was also very selfless on his part to hand off to Tim Cook in August, and put the new senior management team in place, knowing that this day would ultimately come.

    I don’t mean to sound callous, but hopefully that move created enough of a separation where we do not end up too badly tomorrow after the sell-off that’s going to come.

    We just don’t know.  What’s happened before obviously can’t fully predict tomorrow.  But I would guess, if I had to and assuming it was appropriate to do so given this very sad time, that AAPL will not be held down, if it is, for long.

    Only about 5k shares sold in the 15 minutes left in AH after I heard the sad news, dropping the price $1

    Turning back again to the markets, it’s my understanding AAPL trading was halted before the news.

    We don’t really have anything to go on as far as market reaction today.

    I continue to watch CNBC which is doing a tribute and discussing how the company might change given his departure.  One analyst said that his vision has been baked into the product line for Apple for the next 5 years at a minimum.  He built a strong company and very carefully picked that management team. The Cook appointment was very measured and calculated by Steve. 

    Again, I don’t know what the stock will do - so many day traders and nonsense that goes on.  Fundamentally, for the next several years we have been carefully placed on a good course.

    Yes, Mav you are correct.  My bad.
