Apple y el mercado

Una vez más Apple reporta resultados récord. Este es el trimestre en el que más macs se han vendido en la hisotria de la companía

Apple® today announced financial results for its fiscal 2008 third quarter ended June 28, 2008. The Company posted revenue of $7.46 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.07 billion, or $1.19 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $5.41 billion and net quarterly profit of $818 million, or $.92 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 34.8 percent, down from 36.9 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 42 percent of the quarter’s revenue.

Apple shipped 2,496,000 Macintosh® computers during the quarter, representing 41 percent unit growth and 43 percent revenue growth over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 11,011,000 iPods during the quarter, representing 12 percent unit growth and seven percent revenue growth over the year-ago quarter. Quarterly iPhone™ units sold were 717,000 compared to 270,000 in the year-ago-quarter.

Y una vez más las acciones de Apple se desploman a pesar de los excelentes resultados:

Shares of Apple Inc. fell sharply as investors focused more on the company’s cautious guidance for the current quarter than on the blockbuster Macintosh and iPod sales during the previous three-month period.

Las acciones bajaron hasta un 9.98% para cotizarse en $149. Ahora bien, eso de que el mercado anticipa y la carabina de ambrosio es lo mismo. Apple siempre da pronósticos pesimistas y tiene 8 trimestres superando ampliamente dichos pronósticos. Sin embargo, parece ser que en Wall Street en lugar de inversionistas, tienen un grupo de changos aventándose papeles y brincando sobre las mesas. Concuerdo totalmente con este post al respecto:

Seriously now! What’s with Wall Street’s obvious narrow-mindedness when it comes to Apple’s guidance? We all know that Apple guides conservatively every quarter, and every quarter we all know that Apple handedly beats its proffered estimates. Yet, for some reason unbeknownst to anyone with at least a shred of intelligence, the media, Wall Street and the uninformed investor get completely caught up in the same old obtuse story: “Will Apple’s conservative guidance disappoint investors?” To that I answer: only if the investor is an idiot. Wall Street is like a child who hasn’t realized that touching a hot stove burns until after the fifth attempt at doing so.

    Mmm, no estoy seguro de que se trate de Karma. Creo que esta vez se debe más al trabajo colectivo de varios idiotas
