“AAPL stock is sliding further in early market trading, more than 3% down on the previous close at the time of writing,” Ben Lovejoy reports for 9to5Mac. “It follows a 4.4% fall during yesterday’s trading.”

“In the last 30 days, the stock has fallen from $209.95 on 7th November to around $171 now,” Lovejoy reports.

“The market is responding to two pieces of bad news. First, and most significantly, iPhone lens-maker Largan Precision has announced a 25% drop in November sales, compared to a year ago,” Lovejoy reports. “Second, there have been more pessimistic analyst reports, CNBC citing two of them. Rosenblatt Securities believes that the fall will continue and that there will be no recovery within a year… UBS was more optimistic, with a price target of $210, but said that a survey had shown the lowest level of purchase intent seen in five years.”

MacDailyNews Take: This too shall pass and the lemmings, er… “analysts” will eventually turn the other way again.

In fiscal year 2018, Apple’s revenue grew over $36 billion to $265.6 billion. For the current quarter, Apple has guided for revenue between $89 billion and $93 billion, a new all-time record. (That’s revenue of roughly $1 billion — with a B — per day.)

When analysts learn to see without the unit share blinders Apple has just removed, hopefully their eyes won’t pop out of their heads when they finally see those huge numbers and realize how very much more is to come.MacDailyNews, November 28, 2018
