Lol. You have been handed your ass on your plate with facts and you are scurrying around like an oaf.
It doesn't matter both have to be correct, or its a criminal offense.
Who says it does? In Apple's case it gives more information in it's conference call than it's 10-Q. Both have to be accurate, or its a civil or criminal offense.
Jesus wept. Firstly the statement is for projected revenues. NOT FOR THE ACTUAL RESULTS. Capice? the very fact that they have to include legal boilerplate even for the projected earnings, where you would assume most investors would know were estimations, proves that they could be sued without those legal disclaimers.
They can't, and don't, make any such disclaimers for the actual results which is what we are talking about. No company would get away with a legal boiler plate saying that the actual results they are announcing can be taken with a pinch of salt and may not have happened. You either didn't know this, or you are being disingenuous. The numbers in the 10-Q are the same as in the report. And in the report there is more information about channel inventory. Which is what this is about ( and you have yet to provide any information that any other company gives channel info)
both the 10Q and the conference call report can be taken as legally binding documents.
