I use it, but I understand it's becoming a pain to maintain.... 40

As you can all see, the stock ticker broke again, 2nd time in 2 months. It's getting harder and harder to make it work unfortunately.

No ETA on finding a (free) feed we can tap into.....

That was pretty funny - posting a poll in a locked thread. I thought for a moment that you were trying to steer the voting toward, 'well, no one seems to care about this...'

I would definitely miss it. But no doubt it is easier for me to open another site with AAPL's ticker than it is for you to maintain it. Still, it would be missed.

Just put an app on your smart phone that will show you AAPL's price. Or bookmark a stock ticker site. In this day and age it's just nuts to have to have it on the forum.

I disagree, it is a not uncommon conversation piece. There is at least one AAPL stock topic on the front page of the forum right now. Many of us own (or owned) AAPL and regularly weep at our lack of gain because we sold far too early.

Or did not have the cash available to invest at various points in time that would have given a really good profit by now.

If you could have scraped together $150 on this day in 1998 to invest in AAPL you would now have $19,436.88.. (Thanks for that link, Ombligo!)

As posted here recently, the 16th anniversary of the iPod introduction was just last month. By a year later the evidence I could see on campus was that they were taking off and Apple stock would being going up soon. $1000 put into AAPL 15 years ago would be worth about $150-160,000 today. I was hoping to put together a few hundred at the time, but all my extra cash was paying off post divorce debts.

While I routinely use it, and I like having it there, I also appreciate that you should not have to jump through hoops to keep it going.

How about just keeping the link to the live update?

I never would bother to check the current share price of AAPL... so there's of evidence that having it occasionally engenders some casual conversation along the lines of "What's up with AAPL today?"

I also get that it's a pain to maintain if the API to pull it constantly changes.

As an alternative can we have a value displayed there that's arbitrary and could be set by a number of users inputting the same thing? A community barometric number, if you will... maybe by posting an update on a specific, hidden thread you have to know about to set?

It wouldn't be any less random or accurate than the price of AAPL!

It was a nice thing to have right there all the time. Like a wife, but you really don't need one. Especially one that doesn't function well and is worthless.
Just the link is a great alternative.

Apple market value: We may need a bigger chart
Noel Randewich

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc (AAPL.O) Chief Executive Tim Cook quashed concerns recently about muted demand for the iPhone X, saying pre-orders for the 10th anniversary smartphone were “off the charts,” but it might be the company’s market capitalization that needs a bigger graph.

Positive reviews for the new device and expectations that many users are on the verge of upgrading from older iPhones have sent Apple’s stock to record highs, pushing it closer to becoming the first publicly listed company with a stock market value above $1 trillion.

“Apple is taking the iPhone franchise to a whole new level with the iPhone X, pushing the company deep into the ultra-luxury smartphone market,” Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White wrote in a note to clients ahead of Apple’s quarterly report on Thursday after the bell.

Ahead of the Nov. 3 release of the redesigned glass and stainless steel device, some analysts have questioned its price tag: At $999 for the base model, it is the most expensive iPhone to date.

But Cook last week said pre-orders of the iPhone X were “off the charts”, while the company’s website showed delivery times pushed out to five to six weeks for the phone.

At Wednesday’s $166.89 stock price, down 1.3 percent from a record high, the Cupertino, California company’s market capitalization stood at $862 billion.

Since the first iPhone in January 2007, Apple's stock has surged almost 1,300 percent, compared to the S&P 500's 83-percent increase. Including dividends, Apple's total return has been about 1,400 percent. (tmsnrt.rs/2z5YNB0)

Apple’s stock has risen about 26 percent per year on a compound basis since the start of 2007, a trajectory that - based on its current shares outstanding - could see it reach a market capitalization of $1 trillion in mid-2018.

The mean price target of 37 financial analysts covering Apple stands at $176.70, equivalent to a market value of $913 billion.

At least four analysts have target prices for Apple that put its market value above $1 trillion. Drexel Hamilton's White, the most bullish among Apple analysts tracked by Thomson Reuters, has a target price of $208, equivalent to a market capitalization of $1.074 trillion. (reut.rs/2z5egB9)

No analysts recommend selling Apple shares, but among the seven with “hold” ratings, one of the least enthusiastic is Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang, with a $140 price target.

Initial reviews of the iPhone X called it the best iPhone yet, although some reviewers pointed out potential glitches in FaceID, the company’s new face recognition system."

I was the same. But intense family pressure forced me to agree to get an iPhone 4 for each of us. It worked out so well that I have since moved up to an iPhone 5!

What seems to be actual problem this time? I'm pretty good at dealing w/ this sort of problem solving. PM me if desired w/ the details of what's being done now to gather and post the pricing info, and the exact nature of what's occurring now to make the ticker unfriendly, and where you perceive the hiccup(s) is/are that are causing the cyberhostility. I can't fathom this not having a fairly easy, straight-forward (logic-wise, anyway) solution.

I enjoy it. It adds a bit to our sense of purpose here... our roots, if you will.
I would understand if it needed to go away, but it would detract a teensy bit from our community.
We'd get over it, sure, but it's better with, than without, if it's a solvable thing that can STAY solved.

But it's not accurate and is jumping around wildly. Looks more like someone is in the process of working on it (and I thank them for that effort), but it's not fixed yet.

Apple is borrowing big bucks currently. The news came while I was in Iran and the full news story would not download. The news had the word "sharedolder" in it. I can't find the precise article now that I. Am home.

Probably just borrowing to pay dividends which has been AAPL's way of not repatriating profits in order to avoid paying taxes.
