    It makes no sense

    When Apple (or any company for that matter) releases an earnings report, it included 2 items: Quarter results and guidance.....Nobody cares about the quarter results...they ONLY care about guidance.

    Well the next quarter passes and guess what? The "guidance" that everybody was worried about before has been translated into the current quarterly results to which nobody cares about now because they are only concerned about the next quarters guidance. And the process repeats itself each and every quarter.

    The end result is a complete obsession with "guidance" which eventually always turns into "results" to which nobody gives a shit about because they are concerned about the next round of "guidance".

    "guidance" really doesn't mean shit, it's results that matter....but they are almost always ignored.

    This makes no sense at all.
