Wow, its been a long time since Apple blewout expectations on something. That should help the stock price a lot. My option straddle will pay off.

9 million...insane. Can't wait for mine to get here (Thursday!)

 

Gene Munster predicted 6 - 10 million last year, saying that 8 million is most likely. He got burned when Apple sold 5 million.

 

This year Gene decided to be more conservative, saying 5 - 6 million... and he got burned again.

I am going to do something unusual on the Internet and admit I was wrong. If Apple are selling out of the 5C at this price it didn't need to go lower. However I hope when the upgrade/Christmas/Chinese new year is over prices are subtly reduced.

The time to discount the 5C will come. 

not yet.

If they are selling like hot cakes, I doubt they will lower the prices.

They probably count all preorders delivered by this weekend as weekend sales. That would be mostly the 5C.

If the 5s is actually outselling the 5c by  3.7 X as data suggests then I wouldn't say you are too far wrong.

Apple could have sold more if they have gotten the production right.

They have too little gold version to go around, not enough silver version and generally not enough 5s to go around.

Probably production constraint issues.

Apple has no need to lower price for 5c, they just need to produce more 5s and less 5c depending on market's demand.
post #54 of 219

I wonder where TapTapTap is today.  He told us he was certain that the 5c was a flop and there was no way that 5 million were sold.

post #55 of 219

APPLE IS DOOMED!!! DOOOOOOOMED!!!!!!

 

ONLY 9 million? C'mon!!! whats goin on with Tim Cook?

 

Apple should be selling 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Iphones!

 

Apple sucks! Android rulez!

 

 

LOL!!!!!!!

It looks to me like Tim Cook put out the amount that he knew was necessary to blow away last year's amount... knowing he could sell them.

The OS reminds me of a clown OS and Fisher Price toys.

 

LOL.  Yeah I'm sure Tim Cook wants to go to jail for stock manipulation by flat out lying about early sales figures.

WOW! Apple just delayed its doom for another quarter. Maybe... but unfortunately next year Wall Street will want Apple to sell 12 million iPhones over a weekend or else investor fears will return.

That announcement should send up Apple stock about $5 a share.

And to Peter Misek of Jefferies... FU, you manipulating prick.

Don't forget about Karen Finerman from CNBC who "lost confidence in Apple" I hope you both get fired because you're both idiots! I hope the egg on your face is actually balut.

And people were bragging that GTA 5 sold $1 billion in 3 days.

Apple would have done roughly $5 billion if everyone bought the 5C 16GB. It's more likely, given the mix of iPhones, that Apple racked up $6-7 billion in sales the first 3 days.

Now has anyone "revised" their quarterly sales yet? There's still one week to go....

I assume that the nine million includes pre-orders (like mine).

 
Either way, these numbers are way above last year's sales and way above predictions!

CONGRATS TIM COOK AND APPLE.
AND THANK YOU- I ABSOLUTELY COULDN'T BE HAPPIER WITH MY NEW 64 SPACE GREY!

Everything looks so much better in person too- both 5s and 5c and their respective covers. I was shocked- the colors, the builds.
Stunning.
post #66 of 219

I think shortages are getting filled.  I ordered two 5S gold on Saturday and they will be shipped this Friday.

post #67 of 219
I love how some analysts and tech sites are throwing in caveats about China or the 5C. First, no analyst predicted sales of 9M and that was taking China and the 5C in to account. A lot of them thought it was a doomed launch for Apple because they didn't announce any 5C numbers last week. Second a lot of people were calling the 5C a failure and not expecting it to sell well. If we're supposed to believe that then the 5C isn't really inflating numbers is it? Bottom line is all things considered, nobody expected this number. Not even the Gene Munster's of the world. And even with this number Apple still can't get back to where it was before the keynote. 1rolleyes.gif

Not to mention all the other pundits who were complaining that the 5C was too expensive and no one wanted a plastic phone and the 5S screen was too small and 1000 other petty complaints.

Just once, I'd like to see one of the experts say "I admit that I was wrong and didn't know what I was talking about. Apple has shown years of doing a great job, so let's just let them do their thing without insane criticism".

I can't wait to read the analyst takebacks today. Nine. Million. And sold out on 5S too, which means the initial tidal wave is not close to being over.

I don't think that's obvious at all.

Even if the 3.7X ratio is correct, the 5C would have sold 2 M phones in 3 days. You can count the number of phones that sold that many in one weekend on the fingers of one hand - and most of them are previous iPhones.

2 M of ANY new phone in one weekend is impressive - and when it contains previous generation internals, it's even more impressive.

I'd actually then start paying attention to him/her.

 

We don't want that. Who'd we have to dump on?

Outstanding! Take this Peter MeSuck

Actually a little frightened! Stock went up!! Pundits haven't complained (so far) that it wasn't 10, 15, 20 million units!

Exactly. I mentioned earlier that I visited the Scottsdale, AZ (USA) store on Sunday. Loved the iPhones but I was struck as I looked down the store just how wonderful Apple's product line is. There were the iPhones of course, the 5c colors, the iPads and the Minis, then the 2 MBA models, then the MBP line and finally the new iMacs in all their splendor. 

 
Just fantastic...what a lot of work, attention to detail...Just genius! Stevo would be very proud.
 
Congratulations Apple! :)

I was hoping the calls would win over the puts.  With the bread and butter of Apple selling well and with all high margins phones, I strongly suggest investors to get long on the stock on dips.

 

We have a lot more product launches coming.

They got it exactly right. Everyone wants a gold iPhone - and they are not getting any. Why is that?

It makes the entirely line up special. Gucci, Prada, Chanel , Jimmy Choo (the list go on and on) been there done that many times.

It's not about giving everyone what they want, it's about making everyone want one. Too much make your brand cheaper. This is one of the most successful market plot anyone have ever seen, period.

I contributed 2 iphone 5s to the 9 million units. Love the touch id!!

I still think the screen is too small but I also think the ipad mini screen is too small, so it's subjective. That's why I am dying for ipad 5 launch. A7 and ipad 5 are perfect match!

Even though I wish for bigger screen, unfortunately the other phones are not worth considering. I am hoping next year Apple will also offer a larger screen iphone. With a larger screen iphone, the first 3 days sales will break 9 million.

Well, if you go back to previous threads you will see that whenever I or a few others said that the 5C would, at best, only sell as many phones as previous 2nd generation phones then you'll see the irrational responses by quite a few members who said the 5c would be a blow-out seller. Sorry... 2 million is not a blow-out seller [for an iPhone]. 6 million units of the 5s is a blow-out seller.

I think the 5S is more of an improvement over the 5 than the media first thought. Speed, Security, and camera. Evolutionary my ass! I think those are massive improvements. Especially the speed/chips.

 
I can see the 5S being most popular with early adopters...they are into having the newest best kit available. The 5C will be a hit eventually. The colors really are striking complement iOS7 very well.
