"I would add, as a further update, we’ve been selling with China Mobile now for about a week, and last week was the best week for activations we’ve ever had in China. So it’s been an incredible start, and at this moment, we’re just selling in 16 cities with China Mobile, and as Peter alluded to, this number is projected to be over 300 cities by the end of this year. And so we’ve got quite the ramp in front of us, and we’re incredibly excited.
How can the guidance be so negative with this coming onboard? Doesn't make sense! Overly conservative if you ask me!
Ridiculous how badly Cook has brought down this company!
Its the guidance that screwed up the report! If Cook hadn't given weak guidance the stock would have soared!
"...The bottom line is that there are always ways to make money in the stock market. As Apple deals with structural inefficiencies caused by too many earnings details, momentum killing guidance, secrecy about innovation that inhibits price-to-earnings growth, a lack of acquisitions, too much cash, and too few profits from within its software ecosystem, there are other opportunities for investors.
The honeymoon for Tim Cook is over."
IT'S ALL IN THE DELIVERY AND TIM COOK DOESN'T DELIVER!!!!
AAPL has lost face with investors!
At least Paul Jacobs doesn't blow it like tim cook did!
Feds announced cutting $10 billion bond purchase from stimulus again. Wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for other countries currencies being devalued right and left! What a fricken mess!
Finally some common sense!
But hopes Apple is buying back more than he is! lol
Cook is a numbers guy but not a good marketing guy. He doesn't know how to sell the company and answer analysts' questions and concerns.
....NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- If earnings results from Verizon (VZ) are any indication, it may have been a monster quarter for Apple (AAPL) as it relates to iPhone sales, as the company activated 8.8 million smartphones during the holiday season.
