What production cuts? None of us know if there were production cuts. This stock manipulation happens every year. Maybe there were cuts or maybe not. I’d go with the latter.
Under Cook, and for the most part under Jobs, Apple has been very up front with public information and not played games (think Musk and Tesla).

Is Apple trying to buy itself out of the stock market circus?
No. Buying back stock isn't about going private. It doesn't move Apple any closer to being private or, likely, make it easier for someone to take it private. (I'd argue, for reasons I won't get lost in here, that in this case the buy backs make it a tiny bit less likely that Apple would get taken private. That effect isn't particularly relevant though because it would be extremely unlikely anyway.)
A company can't take itself private. It can't buy back enough stock that it becomes a private company. Someone else - or some combination of someone elses - has to, in effect, buy the company.
Have to say I disagree with the comments calling the recently used area a waste. This is one of my favorite features of the updated Dock. Since I use command-space to open apps that I don't used enough to put in the Dock its nice that they then appear in the Recent area, for a while. Which is great as if I use them I'm more likely to use them again in the near term.
Or, could it be there is no significant reduction is demand? II-VI just bought Finisar and last year bought Anadigix, both of whole compete with Lumentum for Apples VCell business. Could it possibly be that there was a shift in supplier to a newly dominant player? While I’m not as familiar with Japan display it would seems possible there is a similar story there. Could it be that analysts have their collective heads ....
