    Seems the geek time host may be jumping out a window soon after seeing the price of his beloved Apple stock falling like a dagger! It's only down $50 so far today! Look out below,

    Jump Ralph, Jump Ralph!

    I've read some headlines but what's the deal? Is Apple being mismanaged in the wake of Steve Jobs death? Parenthetically, I still can't believe that Ashton Kutcher is playing Steve Jobs in a movie that they are screening at Sundance.

    Revenue missed their goals big time.

    Its down 10%

    This ceo is not a good fit

    They need to bring down the build costs of the iPhone or they're fucked

    Tracfones are built in china too.

    Its that they use the best(most expensive) parts.

    If they could trim costs on the build they would generate more profit on the sale.

    The truth is the exact opposite. Apple posted record earnings for the quarter. http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/23/3908330/apple-q1-2013-earnings

    Putting aside any personal feeling for Apple in general the facts are that they did not miss their goals. Apple predicted 11 billion in profit and they ended up with 13.1 billion. How can anyone say that they missed their goals by 10%?? It's simple math.

    Volume is out of control.

    On an average day 19mil shares of apple are traded

    The markets have only been open 2hrs and there have been 28mil shares traded already

    Hard to tell if people are jumping ship or looking for a deal.

    Because you are confused between earnings and revenue. Very basic stuff.

    They failed to meet expectations for the last 3 quarters now.

    To everyone fighting about the numbers: this here is the word you are looking for.

    When it comes to stock prices, goals = investor expectations.

    I provided a link to avoid any confusion but it seems that some people didn't actually read the news. Q1 2012 Apple had 46.33 billion in revenue. Q1 2013 Apple posted 54.5 billion in revenue!

    The stock is getting hammered because Apple stock has never traded based on profits. They're judged mainly on their innovations in technology and the market currently feels that Apple is taking a laid back approach on their current and future product catalog. Apple needs to wow the market with new never before seen hardware or software before their stock performance improves.
