Taiwanese mobile maker HTC aims for Middle East growth - The National

Are HTC a good bet, are the prime markets they have identified going to deliver, or should we be looking to the US for long term investment?

Any thoughts welcome!

HTC were in the Middle East for a while a few years ago under the guise of the brand i-mate.
Just take a look at what happened to i-mate.

with all of the problems of counterfeiting, spares supply etc in the Middle East, I wouldn't count on that particular market to bolster any company's performance..

JohnSilverman started this thread yes, the components issues seem problematic for HTC, still a big brand though, to me you really only have samsung and apple in a similar bracket

I certainly would not touch Apple stock, too much trouble making going on.

Re: HTC - Prime Markets

JohnSilverman started this thread "Apple is a great example of a stock that got too popular for its own good."

"When a stock like Apple lures so many investors, who drive the price up, everything is fine as long as the company can deliver increasing sales growth and maintain industry-beating profits."

"But when the company's stellar growth or margins suffer even a bit, and the realities of economics set in, investors who priced the stock for perfection have second thoughts. "

More problems for HTC in the components area - Nokia has won a patent fight over a recording device in the HTC One meaning that production will all but cease until they can find a substitute component and supplier. 3% fall in shares. Whatever HTC's primemarkets if they cannot deliver a product they will lose out in Asia as they already have in Europe and US.
