Apple and a Big Pile of Cash

Upside Down $AAPL Shares of Apple, Inc. dropped in after hours trading in the wake of Apple’s December quarter guidance.

Shares of $AAPL ended the regular trading day at $222.22, a gain of $3.36 (+1.54%), on heavy volume of 56.1 million shares trading hands.

Apple traded at $206.46 in the after hours market, a loss of $15.76 (-7.09%). Trading in the after hours market is often amplified compared to regular trading sessions, but that’s a significant sell-off for $AAPL.

Apple reported record September quarter revenues of $63.9 billion, with record earnings of $14.2 billion. This compares to $52.6 billion in the September quarter of 2017, with earnings of $10.7 billion.
