    Please post numbers AND news source link if available when the numbers come in.

    After that, the floor’s open to general discussion.

    A companion conference call topic is also being set up.

    You and me both.

    This is the quarter that guidance is perilously close to actual.

    Apple is raising the specter of a very anemic transition quarter.

    A giant kick in the nuts. Even my worst thought outcome doesn’t come close to comparing to this.

    For all that, down only 4.5% as I write this ain’t bad…

    Pretty damn bad all around. Yes, iPhone 5 will be huge but AAPL is no longer infallible and it is much more difficult to estimate now going forward. All my past estimates go out the window.

    There’s a “reason”: 

    $42.54 ttm EPS

    Multiple at AH prices: 13.4

    Net income growth:  20% YOY

    Kind of adds up based on this quarter’s numbers.

    AAPL is cyclical and its secrecy prevented hints that guidance would be much, much closer to actual going forward.

    Next quarter will be much easier.  It just won’t be all that pretty.
