Funny thing GS and CITI analysts made totally wrong calls.
GS analyst issued a note just a few days before the earnings saying Apple would not announce dividend or buyback at the same time. Citi's guy said Apple's earnings would came in near the lower end of their guidance. Those statements turned out to be totally wrong, if not intentionally misleading. Financial analysts should be banned from making predictions. Their job should be limited to analyzing and presenting data and facts only. No forward looking statements should be allowed to come out of their mouths.
