For the first time in 13 years, Apple expects to see its revenues decline: iPhone sales rose less than expected. When the results were announced Tuesday, Apple’s stock in New York fell by 2%.
Would the apple in free fall? Apple announced on Tuesday, January 26, quarterly financial results that give the appearance of a healthy group. Its turnover for the period that ended in late December totaled $ 75.9 billion and its profit reached $ 18.4 billion. In both cases, there is a record.
Yet the action of the group fell by 2% in New York for the announcement of results. Investors were not reassured by iPhone sales, Apple’s traditional profit machine. Apple sold 74.8 million or 700,000 less than expected by analysts. Above all, the increase in sales of the famous smartphone – which was only 1% compared to the same period in 2014 – has never been so low since the release of the iPhone in 2007.
