Cramer: Apple analysts have ‘their tails between their legs’ post-earnings

“Wall Street’s top tech analysts were beside themselves Tuesday evening after finding Apple’s earnings report to not be as bad as feared, according to CNBC’s Jim Cramer,” Berkeley Lovelace Jr. reports for CNBC. “‘The conference call was dysfunctional. They didn’t know what to do,’ said Cramer, whose charitable trust owns shares of Apple. ”Analysts had their tails between their legs. They cut and run.””

“On Jan. 2, after the closing bell, Apple lowered its first-quarter guidance, which sparked a nearly 10 percent sell-off in the stock the next day,” Lovelace reports. “Cramer, who has long warned against selling Apple shares, had said at the time that he was not convinced and that he was tired of seeing negative Wall Street coverage suffocate the company’s stock. ‘The news simply wasn’t horrible enough to sate the bears,’ the ‘Mad Money’ host said Tuesday night after Apple’s earnings release.”

Cramer also touted the Apple Watch, saying it “is going to be a worldwide phenomenon” that will change health care. “The watch is something to watch,” Cramer said. “You’re going to begin to see deals made all over the world for health.”

  1. I think people love to attack Apple because they aspire to do good things. There is something about this that drives some people nuts. If you are kind of evil like Google, Amazon or FB people excuse bad behavior as it is expected. If you aspire to good people look for any possible flaw they can criticize.

    1. @John

      Correction, people love to attack Apple because Tim Cook is pissing on consumers and running the company right into the ground.

      Let’s not pretend that another market correction is not coming that will most likely be worse than the last.

      Keep in mind, AAPL may go up in the short term, but Apple’s long term problem is staring it right in the face… TIM COOK.

      Until they handle their problem, Apple and AAPL will continue this insanity.

      1. Correction: Zerobrain likes to piss on Tim Cook because he’s a frustrated homophobe.

        Mr Zerobrain was wrong yesterday when he said Apple stock would drop after the earnings call. He’s also wrong about Tim Cook.

        He’s just an angry troll and doesn’t even really merit a response at all.

        Now go off and play in the traffic.

        1. Allan Von Zero…
          Different name, same brain.
          Determined to take Stupidity to absolute new heights..`and also define new levels below idiot .

          Bought Apple at all time high, without any due diligence and thought….expected overnight riches..
          Played a game he is not qualified to play…. got hit and now he blames the universe and evertying in it but himself.

          Read his posts for the entertainment/laughter/ stupidity factor… nothing else.

          Ps… from Webster

          Morons.—Those whose mental development is above that of an imbecile, but does not exceed that of a normal child of about twelve years.

          Imbeciles.—Those whose development is higher than that of an idiot, but whose intelligence does not exceed that of a normal child of about seven years.

          Idiots.—Those so defective that the mental development never exceeds that or a normal child of about two years.

          And then : ALLAN VON ZERO

  2. An appetite for drama can overwhelm a more genuine need for real understanding. Drama sells. So those of certain mindset — perhaps in certain occupations — gain by magnifying the spectacle and perpetuating a sense of crisis. Emotionalism takes less effort than acquiring real knowledge, exercising good judgment, and interpreting the facts dispassionately.

    Say “Apple’s in trouble!” and people clamor for the juicy bits, real or imagined.
    Say “Apple is experiencing a setback” and, well, that may be fairly accurate, and it may even be useful to some people, but yawn.
