Predictions and performance

Today Apple announced 33.7M iPhones for their 4th quarter ended September 30, up from 26.5M a year ago, and flat vs. last quarter.  Street expectations were anywhere from 3l to 37M, so they 'got it right' while the group I touted last week, ARGUS INSIGHTS, was low, @ 27 to 31M.   They, of course, are working on their algorithms--they've hit seven of the last eight quarters, but no one's perfect, especially in this grab-bag marketplace.

What about Apple?  Well, with Carl Icahn now involved, stay tuned.  Maybe Meg should call him?

Nope, perish that thought.
