  1. They are live streaming because there will be big news! – They will be telling the shareholders what they will be doing with the excess cash generated as they draw down their cash hoard. It’s a big deal, as they will probably do share buybacks, but also if they increase thier dividend more than the standard 15% to lets say 50%, then that could be a big driver of the stock. As always, “services” will become more prevelent and will help diminish fears that AAPL is fully dependent on iPhone sales.
