“What is it with Craig Berger and Apple? The FBR Capital Markets analyst made headlines Monday with a report that Apple had slashed iPhone production for this quarter — down as much as 40% from the September quarter in which Apple racked up record sales of 6.9 million units,” Philip Elmer-DeWitt reports for Fortune.
“Sounds pretty scary. But perhaps best taken with a grain of salt, given Berger’s track record with Apple,” Elmer-DeWitt reports.
“It should be noted that Berger specializes in chips, not computers or smartphones. He is not on StarMine’s list of analysts who spend a significant amount of their time covering Apple . Nor does he appear on the list of analysts dialing into Apple’s quarterly earnings calls,” Elmer-DeWitt reports.
