To understand why, look at what happened to IBM (IBM) in 1939, when it was kicked out of the Dow. Norman Fosback, the erstwhile head of the Institute for Economic Research, reported in his investment textbook “Stock Market Logic” that “the DJIA would today be more than twice its currently quoted level” had IBM not been kept out of the Average for those four decades — meaning the Dow currently would be at around 50,000. One measure of this comes from an analysis of the two dozen stocks that have been added or deleted from the Dow since 2000.
Apple (AAPL) is reportedly planning to make adjustments to the screen quality of its next iPhone model, which is slated to release in September 2018. According to the Wall Street Journal, the decision to choose cheaper LCD screens for the new iPhone comes as the company is looking to boost the profit margins of its iPhone portfolio. While Apple’s bottom line will likely rise after putting LCD screens in the new models, it might lag behind other Android smartphones concerning quality and appearance.
Apple (AAPL) has doubled its HomePod market availability to half a dozen countries, a move that could help it better compete with Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet’s (GOOGL) Google in the smart speaker industry.

The prospect of a trade war in China isn’t weighing on the nation’s largest technology stocks. A group of the five biggest is poised to have a combined market valuation of more than $4 trillion. With tech stocks surging and Facebook Inc. ( FB) setting a new all-time high this week, the likes of it, Apple Inc. ( AAPL), Amazon Inc. ( AMZN), Alphabet Inc. ( GOOG) and Microsoft Corp. ( MSFT ) could surpass the combined market capitalization of $3.95 trillion they had at the end of trading on Wednesday. Add Netflix Inc. ( NFLX ) to the mix and the group’s combined valuation is only lower than China’s Shanghai Composite value and if it was an economy it would be a few billion dollars shy of surpassing Italy as the tenth largest economy in the world, TheStreet.com noted. "FANG -- Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet -- is 100% about growth without worries about tariffs and trade," TheStreet's founder, Jim Cramer, said in the report.

When Apple Inc. introduced AirPods earbuds in 2016, chief designer Jony Ive hailed the beginning of a new "wireless future."

The next step was wireless charging for the iPhone, the ability to drop Apple’s flagship product on a charging mat and juice it up via a process known as induction. This accessory is taking longer to make due to a series of technical hurdles, slowing the company’s wireless strategy and highlighting supply-chain challenges that have hampered product launches in recent years.
