NEW YORK, April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Apple Inc. ("Apple" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: AAPL). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Apple and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On January 2, 2019, post-market, Apple slashed its prior quarterly revenue forecast for the already complete first quarter of fiscal year 2019, citing falling iPhone sales in China, the Company's third-largest market after the United States and Europe. In a "Letter from Tim Cook to Apple Investors," Apple disclosed that its 1Q19 revenues were only $84 billion, far below the expected range of $89 billion to $93 billion the Company had announced just eight weeks earlier on November 1, 2018. Following these disclosures, Apple's stock price fell $15.73 per share, or nearly 10%, to close at $142.19 per share on January 3, 2019.
