  1. Analysts are lemmings jumping off the cliff. Assumptions of decreased iPhone sales/profit are idiotic and have nothing to do with reality. Apple is not an iPhone company. It has other divisions that in and of themselves would qualify apple as a Fortune 500 company. One day the iPhone will be replaced with better tech. The market will never kill the iPhone. Only Apple will determine when to replace it (think iPod).

    1. “Apple is not an iPhone company.”

      Right, they are a Mac Pro company!

      Well, at least up until Cook took over and made it the iPad company fueled by iPhone profits… 🤨

  2. So the same moron analysts that underestimated AAPL’s earnings by 20 cents a share and who program the fucking computers to buy or sell are being followed off their own cliff by investors with ADD who jump around like spit on a griddle. You folks should consider a CD and stay out of the market.
