Everything You Need to Know About Apple's Big Week

It was Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) big week with its annual iPhone unveiling, but investors weren't particularly impressed with the new models. The biggest concern was how Apple decided to price the iPhone 5c. The company risks missing out on all the growth in the low-end and mid-range market segments by using the same pricing strategy.

The headline feature of an integrated fingerprint sensor in the iPhone 5s has some serious potential, though. Other companies have tried to incorporate similar technology but failed to make a lasting impact on the market. Apple has an opportunity to execute on this vision thanks to its integrated approach.

In the following video, Chris Hill discusses Apple's unveiling with Evan Niu, CFA, and Jamal Carnette.

Apple is one of the big five tech titans currently vying for dominance, and some of the other players should be downright terrified of Apple's latest and greatest.

    I have to disagree on this one: Lets look at it another way:

    Traders:

    Negative vibe on price

    Nothing not previously known

    Buy on the rumor sell on the news

    No CM deal announced

    Recent TA on $100 run up

    Price on S model to high

    Investors:

    Buy back opportunities on going and in full swing

    Cash generation looks good boding well for even more buybacks

    New S Iteration; receiving positive hands on views

    New motion Chip for developers means new software sales

    Ad revenue from streaming music.

    5S priced correctly, price can drop if needed

    China Mobile hurdles cleared

    And so on......

    My point relative to your articles that traders had all the fuel they needed to sell, and sell they did.

    Investors were generally pleased and had no reason to sell.

    So...Investors were impressed, traders got what they were looking for.
