Intel Corporation (INTC), Oracle Corporation (ORCL), Apple Inc. (AAPL): Two Problems, One Solution

Two problems, one solution

The solution for Apple is simple: release a new product. If it’s as good the company’s past innovations, consumers won’t have a problem paying a premium and boosting Apple’s gross margin. A cheaper iPhone will only display the company’s lack of innovation and lower margins. I don’t like rumors, and I won’t like Apple if they release a cheaper iPhone.

The article Apple’s 2 Core Problems originally appeared on Fool.com and is written by Marie Palumbo.
