    iPhone is not cheap and david olsen should know that Apple makes 70% of the profits on smartphones. I think david olsen spoke in a very dumb manner regarding Apple's Price. Apple sold 90 Billion worth of smartphones in 12 months and made approx 30 billion net profit on the iphones in the last 12 months. I don't know how can you get a dumb guy like olsen to be in a panel to talk about stocks.
