AAPL's price to free cash flow ratio could get very interesting soon if it continues to fall.

What is the consensus for the next quarter's net revenue?

So the stock sells off 5% because an analyst thinks their tablet market share might drop below 50% in 2016? That's logical.

Here are more frivolous explanations for your comfort.

Quote
Shares of Apple ($551.09, -$24.76, -4.30%) sank Wednesday, leaving observers grasping for a clear reason. StreetInsider.com pointed to clearing firms raising the margin requirement for clients seeking to buy shares to 60% from 30%. Forbes suggested traders may be reading into AT&T Inc.'s (T, $34.23, +$0.31, +0.91%) comments about smartphone sales. CNNMoney.com advanced a theory that investors are disappointed that Apple isn't paying out a special dividend, as are other companies, ahead of a potential dividend tax hike in the new year.

Didn't margin requirements on AAPL just rise for a lot of professional money?  Imagine that is a likely contributor.

That is fantastic. Thanks for posting. Best CEO interview I've read in a long time.

My daughter's mac-book crashed this week. In the middle of exam week it wouldn't boot up. Phone support tried to help but it didn't work. She brought it to the apple store where they told her they'd have an answer in two days. In two hours they called and had fixed it. They'd taken it apart and reattached a cable to the hard drive. It's three years old but she'd had another problem(water related but shhhh) eight months ago and they had replaced it and rewarrantied it for a year.

If my wife's Dell stops working, what do I do - bring it to Best-Buy? These Apple's are expensive but the support that comes with a retail store is worth a lot.

Never an Apple fan, and still not completely sold, we now have two Macbooks (one mine), a desktop, four iphones, an Ipad, and a bunch of old ipods. My kids buy music at itunes; I still think Itunes is horrible, but I use it.

After using the macbook for a few months I still prefer windows, but it may be the old dog - new tricks problem.

And btw, seeing as this is an investment board, I like the stock.

AAPL appears to be in good hands with Tim Cook.  He's very savvy.

Yeah, I'm pretty impressed with all of them. Now that Forstall is gone, it seems to be that we have a happy team in place with Cook as first among equals.
