    Apple Misses on Earnings, Revenue, iPhone Sales, Stock Tanks

    Apple reported third-quarter earnings of $7.05 a share, on revenue of $28.3 billion.

    Analysts, on average, expected Apple to earn $7.22 a share on revenue of $29.5 billion.

    Apple has not missed earnings forecasts since the second quarter of 2002, according to FactSet data.

    The stock is down 8% after hours, after gaining 0.5% during regular trading. Update: The stock is clawing back a little bit, now down about 5%.

    iPhone sales came in at 17.07 million, compared with forecasts of 20 million ? maybe the most disappointing number.

    On the bright side, iPad sales came in at 11.1 million units, topping estimates by a little bit.

    Ah, but that guidance is fantastic!

    I can live with my trade getting flushed down the toilet.  My bull call spreads are gonna be red for a while but I’m still OK.

    Careful, the big boys will spin the “bad news” for all it’s worth.

    -5% AH is hardly a RIMM tank.

    guidance is saving us from a complete stock melt down.

    Looks like the ibank analysts won this round. Everyone gets lucky once in a while.

    Yes, forward looking guidance looks good, right?

    Q1EPS guidance 9.30 will help

    I usually don’t follow future guidance. What is the average percentage sandbagging for future guidance? I didn’t sell when AAPL hit a line connecting the tops in the chart because I thought earnings would be in the 8’s.

    AAPL is going nowhere until Jan Earnings reverse this horrible iPhone miss.

    Although they don’t top analysts’ estimates, these are great numbers, we should recover pretty soon. For once, guidance is good. Same happened yesterday, VMWare (VMW) reported amazing earnings, beating estimates, the stock got hammered by -5% in AH. Today VMW closed +8%. No time to sell, those who hold will be rewarded, comes January, IMHO.

    No new iPhone in FYQ4 = lower iPhone numbers.  This too shall pass.

    You know analysts are blowing this news off when CNBC has to put Bat Guano and some TA moron to poo-poo the stock. Everyone else still loves Apple.

    And I reiterate, delayed iPhone refresh killed the quarter. Hopefully that loss of sales will be carried forward to Q1.

    Zimermann on CNBC: Apple is a bubble!!!

    He is tecnical and looking away from the company and products.  And I am sorry that people like him could scare some investors.

    But let us be positive - and I am buying the dip tomorrow and increasing my 1.500 shares.
