    To Shorts, SPECIFICALLY where will Apple miss their numbers?

    Please tell me what product will NOT outproduce the same quarter last year and how many you think that they will sell.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • DeutscheDeutsche Bank's Japan team. They said result of sales to end-2012 have not been as strong as expected. In addition, the firm said value chain movements suggests a QoQ decrease of more than 30% for 1Q 2013 to respective figures of 28-30m and 25-27m, on a finished and major device basis, for the iPhone 5. The only product they expect to continue favorably is the iPad Mini.

    • Still waiting for shorts to respond. If they don't meet estimates, where will they falter?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • They won't argue that point because they can't. They'll insist on other areas that can be proven to go against them. It's just typical fud and misinformation strategically placed.

    • im not short but according to some analysts, iPhone 5, and some iPads will be light. There are concerns about margins as well.

      • I agree with margins since they were 44.5% last year at this time, but EVERYONE has the minis at a MINIMUM of 8 million + the larger iPads. They only sold 15.5 million iPads at the same time last year, so they would just need to sell about 10 million large iPads to match last years revenues for iPads (They sold 15.5 million last quarter. ) I can POSSIBLY see a miss here, but they have grown every quarter year over year since inception. I have only heard of one analyst say that they MIGHT be light on iPhone sales, but beating 37 million is a VERY low number. With 50+ % revenues coming from iPhones at nearly 70% margin, this number is the key to their quarter.

        In any event, thanks for the response.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      Hey a&& doesn't matter you JEWpiece of sheit. Holding 300 shares and having it lose 200 points is a lot. Shut your non existent mouth and get a job JEWboy. No wonder you sheitheads are soon to be extinct.
