'Anemic' iPhone 8 demand drags Apple shares lower

'Anemic' iPhone 8 demand drags Apple shares lowerWhile some expect a pickup after the iPhone X goes on sale in November, others cautioned that phone's high price tag could weigh on demand. The chief executive of Rogers Communication (RCIb.TO), Canada's largest mobile network, on Thursday said appetite for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which went on sale in September, had been "anemic," the latest sign of weak sales for those phones ahead of the Nov. 3 launch of the pricier iPhone X. Verizon Communication Inc's (VZ.N) Chief Financial Officer Matt Ellis said the number of third-quarter phone upgrades fell versus previous years, but that he expected an upgrade surge when the iPhone X is released.

You Should Buy Rite Aid Corporation Stock Only If This Happens

You Should Buy Rite Aid Corporation Stock Only If This HappensRite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD) investors certainly haven't been faced with a shortage of things to chew on of late. The failure of Walgreen's initial plan to outright acquire all shares of RAD stock in 2015 followed by the no-go on 2016's revised plan to only buy 2,186 Rite Aid units - WBA is now only acquiring 1,932 of Rite Aid's 4,560 stores - spurred mounds of investor concern, as a large cash infusion was seen as the only way to save the struggling Rite Aid Corporation. Here's the thing: Rite Aid was in trouble, maybe even doomed, well before Walgreen's was interested.
