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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
