Once again, Apple proves the naysayers wrong

“During the past few months, many Apple investors apparently panicked about everything from the slowing Chinese economy to smartphone market saturation to tough comparisons after Apple’s record-setting 2015 fiscal year,” Adam Levine-Weinberg writes for The Motley Fool. “The stock has been mired in a range roughly 10%-20% below its 52-week high for the past several months.”

“These fears seemed to be unfounded all along,” Levine-Weinberg writes. “However, Apple just provided one more piece of evidence that all is well at the tech giant. The company delivered strong earnings growth in the fourth quarter of its 2015 fiscal year, and projected solid growth for Q1 2016.”

“As has been the norm for the past couple of years, Apple comfortably beat both its own guidance and analysts’ expectations in Q4,” Levine-Weinberg writes. “Apple also projected that it will generate $75.5 billion-$77.5 billion in revenue during Q1. That would be up 1%-4% from $74.6 billion in Q1 2015, when sales surged nearly 30% year over year… It’s important to distinguish any individual quarter’s results from broader trends. Apple is likely to roll out another big upgrade to the iPhone — presumably the iPhone 7 — in late 2016. That should drive another wave of faster growth at Apple.”

    1. True.
      investor – someone with a long term focus and a desire for the company to grow and strengthen.

      Just saying.

  2. The BS thing of these “financial” people is they been wrong for many years – BUT their whole “live today like it’s the last day of your life, because it could be” crapoloa – is Apple will hit a dry quarter , year whatever… and these f’in useless “financial” crapola artists will be right – and it will not matter that they’ve been wrong the last 5. 7… years. “See I told you so…” will be there BS as if they have ANY “financial” knowledge.

    Apple will hit a dry spell – what company doesn’t, but the salivating of people for Apple to fail is funny, if they were not just so stupid and the stupid people that use their “advice”. They actually manipulate for their own profit. These “financial” assholes know they can short or long for fast money. And anyone that listens to them always loses their money. But… without these people who think they can play the game – they always seem to lose money. Love to watch myself.

    200 billion in the bank – Apple can do ANYTHING they want too for their vision of tech. True investors go long term.

    1. I made the mistake of reading the comments there. Never before have I come across such a heap of anal crapola. The nutters here just can’t compete. The article must have been written by a 14yo.
