iPhone ' cheap ' could be the answer to Apple's devotees are among the lower middle. However, analysts doubt the Apple ideas.
As offered by USA Today (8/4), what happens to Apple at this time with declining stocks were reminiscent of what happened on the Dell in medio 2005. At the time, Dell also rocked by crisis despite the fact their revenue and profits continue to climb.
Dell shall make the wrong policy for the mengerek of its shares up by cutting the price of its products. As a result, rather than increase, their stock plummeted even outside estimates.
This happens because investors started to leave Dell. From here, it can be drawn to the fact that investors are actually waiting for the change of the company's profits rise rather than Dell.
Meal, when similar things happen to Apple this year, does the policy issue ' cheap ' iPhone right? The answer is no, according to analysts.
In fact, it is said that Apple should remain consistent with the upper class market segmentation. This is because Apple has never had experience guarding with lower middle market behavior.
Therefore, if you want to save the State, iPhone ' cheap ' is not the answer.
Indeed, if it could be analyzed, the smartphone market is cheap can already say the battlefield is very tight. A large range of Samsung models starting to ZTE's first flooding this segment with its products.
Feared, if Apple took out cheap products, it could be they will sink due to compete. In addition, spending on cheap products alone will sacrifice their loyal customers who buy the iPhone at a price premium.
Therefore, Apple was supposed to remain consistent with the upscale products although expensive. Because, by doing so, Apple would be able to gain investor confidence so they want to infuse capital in the company from Cupertino.
