So I made a thread earlier in 2018 about what I see as a major economic indicator for the future, Apple.

Apple stock slides Nov 2018



Ok. When people have money they have the most up to date phones. This is indicating to me that people are starting to feel the inflation squeeze and lack of real wage growth which is the housing market is going to continue it's slide.


Now again Apple is getting hit hard.

NYTimes Apple cuts revenue forecast


SAN FRANCISCO — A significant sales slowdown in China, partly fueled by trade tensions with the United States, has forced Apple to reduce revenue expectations for its most recent quarter.

The company said Wednesday that it expected revenue of about $84 billion in the quarter that ended Saturday, down from a previous estimate of $89 billion to $93 billion. That would be a nearly 5 percent decline from the same quarter a year ago.


Apple is blaming trade negotiation's with China but I believe it has to do with the Chinese market slowing down.

China weak growth, lowest growth rate since 2009


BEIJING—China’s economic expansion slowed to its weakest pace since the financial crisis, as top financial regulators launched an extraordinary coordinated effort to calm jittery investors.


Now back to Tim Cook's statement in the NYTimes article...


“While we anticipated some challenges in key emerging markets, we did not foresee the magnitude of the economic deceleration, particularly in greater China,” Apple’s chief executive, Timothy D. Cook, said in a letter to investors. “We believe the economic environment in China has been further impacted by rising trade tensions with the United States.”


Now, I stand by my assertion that inflation from low interest rates and stagnant wage growth has lead us to an economy where people can no longer afford to participate in the consumer market in the same way that they were prior to 2008.

Google, Apple futures

Man, lucky those with put options on Apple. Anyway... expect the volatility and market chaos to continue in 2019. There's going to be fundamental changes to how our economy is currently functioning for this to change. No more bandaids. The Fed and central banks have to stop playing daddy to all the failed venture capitalist who get bailouts.

Why would Chinese continue to buy Apple products when they've stolen the tech and are making their own products with it?

Poor Apple.
The Chinese market is tanking on them.
Hopefully they go bust so we don't have to put up with any more of their cheaply made, low quality, overpriced technology.

Pre market data is bad already.

Markets are going to react to this, I think we saw the dead cat bounce last week with the 1000 pt increase.

I actually agree with you that it's overpriced crap but Apple is a brand that people follow like a religion

China’s young, middle-class consumers are increasingly willing, analysts say, to try phones from the many competitors — including Huawei, Meizu and Xiaomi — that seek to compete with Apple on technical specifications and aesthetics but that offer their models at a few hundred dollars cheaper.

Many customers like Mr. Yu, who is 29 and self-employed, consider the phone they use part of their personal identity, leading them to look at a broad range of available models. That being the case, Apple will have to fight to maintain its dominance of the high end of the market.

Apple is losing its appeal.

And this article is from 2016....

The tech giants can't fall fast enough.

Corporate oligarchy is the worst thing that happened to the modern world.

Good.

It's amazing how people pull together in troubled times - I mean really troubled times, not worrying about gender classification or who the President is.
We need a really severe depression or another world war. Either would bring some character back into the world.

Exactly.
The last 2 years has shown me that there are no band aids to be had.
Rip it up and start again is the only way.
The key is to have no fear and help thy neighbour.

I heard this on the news on my way home from work. I found it funny how It was done after the closing bell. Trying to take the sting out that is about to happen to Apple stock.

oh this is going to take the sting out of the market period, even if it's only temporary

Apple has a broad base of manufacturers that make all its products, chips everything
