MacDailyNews Note: On November 2, 2017, Apple provided the following guidance for Q118:
• revenue between $84 billion and $87 billion
• gross margin between 38 percent and 38.5 percent
• operating expenses between $7.65 billion and $7.75 billion
• other income/(expense) of $600 million
• tax rate of 25.5 percent

MacDailyNews Take: Here’s what we expect to happen at market close on February 1st:



    1. Selling just after the results are announced is usually a bad strategy. The rumours in the run up generally affect the price more than the reality does and there is often a brief turbulent period after the results before common sense returns.

      It’s hard to know what to expect this time. Apple’s last forecast was spectacular, but the analysts seem unimpressed.

  1. Here’s another BOOOOM, so to say:
    Battery “explosion” (or maybe just “meltdown”) in Apple Store Zurich (Switzerland).
    Could, eventually have some consequences on investors humors… Yet, none knows about the injuries of the 7 clients.
    While “fake news” are pretty much a trend since, better wait for more precisions.

    1. here in the UK, when viewing this page on a Mac, there is a stock market summary in the advertising space between the article and the comments. I don’t see one when viewing the same page on my IOS devices. However my iPhone came with the Stocks app already built in.

      It’s not the same as the ticker that used to be at the top of the page, but it does the job when I don’t want to visit dedicated stock market sites.
