Apple and Hockey Stick Growth, Apple Watch and Hockey Stick Growth Potential, Apple Losing in Classrooms 

Today's Above Avalon email includes the following stories: 

  • Apple and Hockey Stick Growth
  • Apple Watch and Hockey Stick Growth Potential
  • Apple Losing in Classrooms

We kick off today's email with a closer look at hockey stick growth, or the idea of an inflection point leading to a dramatic change in revenue and unit sales growth. At first, we look at a few examples of hockey stick growth found with Apple. We then expand the discussion to include Apple Watch and assess the factors needed for the device to see hockey stick growth when it comes to consumer demand. The email concludes with a closer look at the NYT's article about Apple losing the battle for the classroom to Chromebooks. We go over my thoughts and observations on the topic, including Apple's stance on the issue.
