Should This Threat Scare Apple?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Bryan Hinmon and analyst Charly Travers discuss topics across the investing world.

A Wall Street analyst made waves recently by downgrading Apple's stock, fearing that subsidies for its iPhone will be going away. Without a subsidy, will customers be willing to pay the premium price for a new iPhone? Bryan and Charly discuss how history and the entrenched telecom business model impact the likelihood of vanishing subsidies.
