It was the best of quarters, it was the worst of quarters

Today was the last day of Apple’s first fiscal quarter of 2019.

We won’t get Apple’s quarterly results for another month, but Tim Cook and Luca Maestri told analysts in November that they expected the December quarter’s revenue and earnings to hit new all-time records. Ironically, this quarter was also the stock’s worst since since 2000.

My take: Go figure.

    The Store in Spokane (2nd largest in Washington) has been very busy throughout December. My source won’t say by how much YoY, just saying that shareholders have nothing to worry about. All Stores are given growth quotas. From Store personnel comments on activity my gut tells me that Apple has exceeded its revenue guidance.

    I should point out that I do not ask for, nor do I get numbers or any other info that would jeopardize a person’s employment. Besides, numbers from one or two or three Stores are meaningless.
