Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities has today published a new research note in which he has some not-so-good predictions for how Apple will fare in the smartphone market during 2016. Kuo predicts that Apple, under the “worst case scenario,” could see iPhone shipments in 2016 lower than what it saw in 2014. Furthermore, Kuo anticipates that Apple will be the only top-five smartphone brand to see a decline in shipments year over year.
when gold rises what will happen to hecla ?
this is not my words but reviews from many not just 1 objective reviewers this is FACT samsung is the number one best phone and apple **WILL NOT** the SAMSUNG superior display in the iPHONE7 !
the iphone 8 with the superior display (BEING ORDERED FROM MANUFACTURER SAMSUNG) is YEARS AWAY !
What is so hard to understand about this ?
did you see this ?
The race is already long over !
samsung alone shipping almost 2 times as many phones as apple and apple phone is not going to be
well received apple already cutting back on orders from chipmakers !
In all honesty I ask you to look at this poll and what it means for apple who is not even going to release this flop for several months and stockholders will wait for almost 2 years for the iphone8 samsung is already the defacto best phone there is an will be for at least 2 YEARS !
Do you disagree ?
apple cash is high but debt is high and taxes are huge !
and the dividend payment is huge !
if they pay taxes and pay back debt they have very little cash left to weather the coming storm of 1 year with rapidly lower revenues !
They building less because they know they will be selling very FEW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pacific Crest lowered its ratings for Skyworks Solutions and Cirrus Logic to sector weight from overweight on the prospect of poor Apple iPhone 7 sales later this year.
"Our lowered estimates reflect a much more disappointing 2H16 iPhone 7 ramp than what we had previously expected," Pacific Crest's Michael McConnell wrote in a note to clients Monday. Apple is expected by analysts to release the new smartphone in September.
"Conversations with multiple supply-chain partners indicate Apple is taking an extremely conservative approach toward its iPhone 7 build in 2H16."
look at the numbers and the iphone 7 will result in LOWER shipments that this as people wait for iphone8 !
more people deep down know that upside for apple is NIL BUT DOWNSIDE IS hUGE WHEN IPHONE 7 FLOPS and it is 2 years before the phone with the nice all glass screen with high resolution come out
no one will want iphone7 deep down you know it don;t you ?
JULY 26 you will be rocked to your very foundations !

Even this PHONY ETF IS GETTING RECORD DEMAND!!
Global gold exchange traded funds (ETFs) holdings have increased by more than 500 tonnes since January, reaching a high of over 2,000 tonnes for the first time in three years, according to a report on Monday. ‘Investor gold demand has been prompted by slow global growth, negative interest rates in Europe and Japan, and the unlikelihood of the Federal Reserve raising rates in the near future,’ says Frank Holmes, chief executive officer of U.S. Global Investors.
Both Mesters’ and Bullard’s comments were ignored by gold prices, which analysts say are under pressure because of stronger global equity markets. August Comex gold last traded down close to 1% on the day at $1,344 an ounce, following Bullard’s comments.
TD Securities sees $1,400 gold and says $1,500 may even be possible if the Federal Reserve further cools market expectations for interest rates. The metal has benefited from the "disarray" caused by the U.K. after its vote to leave the European Union, as well as global disinflation and low interest rates. "Given that there are likely to be significant flows into gold and other precious metals seeking protection from the current turmoil, the record amount of net-long exposure should not impede the yellow metal from trending toward $1,400/oz," TDS says. "If we see the Fed downgrade its rate forecast in the not-too-distant future, a move toward $1,500/oz is also very possible, particularly if the negative yield narrative grows even louder."
