  29. 29. http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/what-happened-to-apple But Time offers and informed opinion about Apple watch sales.
  30. 30. http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/what-happened-to-apple Apple posted its third quarter earnings on Tuesday, and, as expected, it didnt give any precise numbers regarding Apple Watch sales so far.

  35. 35. http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/what-happened-to-apple A billion dollars in revenue is a good thing but does not make up for losses in other product lines.
  36. 36. http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/what-happened-to-apple Nevertheless Apple has billions socked away and can weather any immediate storms.
