Apple Disappoints

Tyler Durden's picture

And so the behemoth misses... again:

  • APPLE 4Q EPS $8.67, EST. $8.75 - miss
  • APPLE 4Q SALES $36.0B - slight beat

But the uglyness is in the forecast. And this time it is not a low-ball:

  • APPLE SEES 1Q EEPS $11.75, , EST. $15.49
  • APPLE SEES 1Q REV. ABOUT $52B, EST. $55.07B

Stock halted so keep an eye on the QQQ as a proxy - QQQs imply AAPL $590 here (200DMA is $587)... AAPL will resume trading at 4:50ET

No they aren't.


The morons are buying it up again.  Here have some more rope, nothing bad could possibly happen.

All y'all shoulda listened to Reggie when he was finally right. Those who shorted at $690 gonna jump for jah. I expect AAPL to trade below YTD DMA of $581 shortly.

Did you know Apple has almost NO, NONE, ZERO, tangible assets relative to its stock value?


Just askin'!

Reality is hitting these company in regard to the real economy.  People don't have the money anymore also the price of resources have gone up.

Is the Dutch Tulip Bubble an acceptable comparison?


CPL's picture

Tulips you can use over and over again.


iPads not so much.  Has anyone had an apple device where the battery wasn't garbage after a year? 

malikai's picture

My wife's still got her iphone3. Still works fine.

I had to replace my mbp 5.1 battery about a year ago.

They make good stuff. But they're just too big.

The mighty must fall. When they don't is when the problems happen.

PS - do not ever use a car charger, they ruin all batteries, only use the home chargers

Listen to the clowns on CNBC fall all over themselves defending Apple.


I love it when they say a big disappointment but mostly expected.  WTF?

"priced in" or "transitory"?

There goes tha Euro,

AAPLs ordinary!


S'wot happens when you're priced to perfection.


malikai's picture

Ouch! That's gonna hurt.

slaughterer's picture

ES should be below 1400 all night long because of this.

Disclosure: long AMZN, short AAPL.

Conman's picture

Sorry Bud i guess my pairs trade is directly contrary to yours. As soon as the state sales tax hits, sales going to go into the crapper. Only reason i still buy from amazon is to avoid sales tax.

a growing concern's picture

Is the sales tax change up soon?

Water Is Wet's picture

Already happened in July in Texas.  The dates are staggered by state.

TruthInSunshine's picture

Emergency FOMC meeting convened by Bernank/Dudley just concluded; Apple will be granted Primary Dealer status by the Fed, and can also now exchange surplus iPads in at par value for Treasuries of any duration.

iPads and Kindle Fires are also now legal currency for all debt, public or private.

That is all.

Yes. Phones that track and report everything you do............

The HFT's don't understand that they are about to get burned alive from the back end.  The Russell is making a bee-line straight for the entire IT industry.

The Axe's picture
