“Kuo cites supply chain checks and says Apple shipped 52 million units during quarter four to be up 93 percent quarter-on-quarter and up 41 percent year-to-year,” Campbell reports. “As for the iPad, Kuo’s forecast comes in at 23 million units shipped for the three-month period ending in December, or a 49 percent increase from the same time last year. The fourth-generation iPad will come in with 9.3 million shipped units while the newly introduced iPad mini will see 8.2 million shipments.”

  1. If the SEC and Federal departments do not investigate this scam, properly, irrespective of the consequences, the US markets risk losing the confidence of investors, which if lost, will be lost forever ! They, me included, will vote with our money and invest in Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Sydney, San Paolo, Singapore, Manila etc., etc !

    It will prove they are colluding with their campaign contributors. Bad enough that most western states, especially the US through the quantitive easing/ buying the banks bad loans, bailed these fuckers out, when a true capitalist would have followed the survival of the fittest mantara

    1. Wow! Holy cow! I bought yesterday and I’m making good money today. People can whine or invest. You make more money when you invest. Sure, take your money overseas. They’ll welcome you with open arms. Exercise your right to do as you wish with your money. I did. I’ll keep mine here in the good old USA thank you. All the whiners who lost money all the way down from $705 will lose money again from $485 up. Some people just have to blame somebody else for everything that goes on in life. They sure as hell can’t take responsibility for their own actions. Or lack of action. Or lack of knowledge about investing. It’s always easier to blame others. It’s a conspiracy!

  2. Anyone who calls for a SEC investigation of this so-called stock manipulation, is naive. this happens every single day in the market. Unethical? Ya Think!?

    Illegal? Probabley.

    Rampant? Of course.

    SEC investigation? Not since the last three administrations cut the SEC budget and staff in order to satisfy the free market types and the small government. crowd.

    When will this change?> Never, or somewhere thereabouts.

    Get real.

  3. Big deal. EPIC fail in fact. After hearing the 52m number, I quickly madeup a forecast that they should have sold 105m, SO, Apple missed the forecast by over half. They are clearly doomed and circling the bowl. One might even say beleaguered.

    See, I can out wallstreet wallstreet. Can I have a huge salary analcyst job?
