This is why Apple needs to refute supply chain bullshit when its first reported.
IMO, Apple would be at $110-$115 right now if Cook refuted the supply chain rumors in early December.
It would be still down 15% from its highs because of the broad market decline but no way would it be down 30% like it is now.
This is all about controlling the narrative. When the first supply chain rumors began in early December, Cook could have simply tweeted this to kill of these rumors:
"We are on pace for our best holiday quarter EVER!"
"Remember supply chain checks are inconclusive at best and misleading at worst."
"Remember those supply chain rumors in 2012? 2013? 2014? How did that work out?"

It could be that Apple's primary concern is serving its customers rather than its investors. Apple's share price has zero impact on the company's ability to deliver. But if their customers vanish…

Eddy Cue looks and acts like he has his hands full just getting to work in the morning...

Pure, unadulterated crap / rubbish. The more Cook blows smoke and the media hacks inhale it the more apparent it becomes why AAPL is in trouble. All smoke & hype.
What a huge YAWN.
What the hell do we do to capture the huge potential of cord cutting / streaming video?
Are Healthkit and Homekit and Apple Watch really going to drive meaningful margin to us?
How do we leverage our "ecosystem" to rapidly boost revenue growth & margin?
Where are the innovations?
Don't worry - we may have a lead on Liquid Metal as a better "spring" for the home button. That coupled with our limited distribution of the SIMM ejector tool will calm the markets.
