    • I wonder why this comment gets no reaction I read where one commenter claimed a stock buy back questions was sidestepped !!??

      Q: With such a large cash generation, why not step back and buy back even more stock?

      Oppenheimer: This is something we continuously #$%$ We are pleased to have started our share repurchase program this quarter. We returned about $4.5 billion in cash this quarter. We started the buyback program and expect to return about $45 billion over 3 years to our shareholders.

    • There will be a small deadcat bounce. The pumpers and dreamers will get a hard-on and then the deadcat bounce fades and then the same noobs will then blame the cnbc anchors to their grandmothers, to the weather....for their own lack of intel. No offense noobs. If the noobs were smart they will know the good anchors are the ones that are grilling and drilling the apple fanboy analysts. Peace 450-425

    • $13.1 billion, compared to $13.06 billion last year. For a company built around hyper-growth, that doesn't look great.

      The stock is down about 5% in extended trading.

      Apple's guidance fell below estimates, but that's pretty typical for Apple. It's very conservative when it comes to guidance.

      Still, there are reports that Apple has cut orders for iPhone parts, which doesn't help investors that might be otherwise spooked by the slow profit growth.

      "The most important thing to us is that our customers love our product. Not just buy them, but love them," Cook said.

      "We've now sold more than half a billion iOS devices, including 10 per second last quarter."

      Still, Apple is now down more than 6%.

      As a side note, Google's Android chief Andy Rubin likes to Tweet out the kinds of numbers Cook just mentioned. Rubin's last Tweet:

      There have been half a billion android activations to date, with over 1.3m added every day.

      • Apple sold 4.1 million Mac units, compared to 5.2 million a year ago.

        "IDC estimates the global PC market contracted 6%," Oppenheimer reminds everyone.

        Apple was also significantly constrained for the new iMac, which shipped in December. Mac sales would have been higher if this weren't the case, Oppenheimer said.
