Economy In Decline: Apple Reports Massive Revenue Decline As iPhone Sales Plummet Dramatically By Michael Snyder, on April 26th, 2016

Apple iPhone And Apple Computer - Public DomainCorporate revenues in the United States have been falling for quite some time, but now some of the biggest companies in the entire nation are reporting extremely disappointing results. On Tuesday, Apple shocked the financial world by reporting that revenue for the first quarter had fallen 7.4 billion dollars compared to the same quarter last year. That is an astounding plunge, and it represents the very first year-over-year quarterly sales decline that Apple has experienced since 2003. Analysts were anticipating some sort of drop, but nothing like this. And of course last week we learned that Google and Microsoft also missed revenue and earnings projections for the first quarter of 2016. The economic crisis that began during the second half of 2015 is really starting to take hold, and even our largest tech companies are now feeling the pain.

This wasn’t supposed to happen to Apple. No matter what else has been going on with the U.S. economy, Apple has always been unshakeable. Even during the last recession we never saw a year-over-year decline like this…

Apple today announced financial results for the second fiscal quarter (first calendar quarter) of 2016. For the quarter, Apple posted revenue of $50.6 billion and net quarterly profit of $10.5 billion, or $1.90 per diluted share, compared to revenue of $58 billion and net quarterly profit of $13.6 billion, or $2.33 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. As expected, the year-over-year decline in quarterly revenue was the first for Apple since 2003.

I think that this announcement by Apple is waking a lot of people up. The global economic slowdown is real, and we can see this in iPhone sales. During the first quarter, Apple sold 16 percent fewer iPhones than it did during the same quarter in 2015. This is the very first year-over-year quarterly sales decline for the iPhone ever. Here are some of the specific sales figures from the Apple announcement…

Apple sold 51.1 million iPhones during the quarter, down from 61.2 million a year earlier, while Mac sales were 4.03 million units, down from from 4.56 million units in the year-ago quarter. iPad sales were also down once again, falling to 10.25 million from 12.6 million.

Once these numbers hit the wires, shares of Apple immediately began to plummet during after-hours trading. In fact, USA Today is reporting that Apple has already lost 43 billion dollars in market value since the annoucement…

Shares of Apple are getting hit roughly 8% in after-hours trading, tumbling to $96.67. They closed in regular trading at $104.35, or down 0.7%, putting them down 0.9% for the year. The downward move in after-hours trading means the company shed $43 billion in market value based on after-hours trading.

Wow.

Meanwhile, shares of Twitter are crashing in after-hours trading after the social media giant also announced very disappointing results. The stock has now dripped below 16 dollars a share, and the company continues to lose tremendous amounts of money…

For all its other travails, Twitter is unprofitable. It narrowed its loss but still recorded a loss of $79.7 million, or 12 cents a share, compared with a loss of $162.4 million, or 25 cents a share, in the year-ago quarter.

Of course it isn’t just the tech giants that are troubled these days.

On Tuesday we learned that same-store sales for Chipotle declined by a whopping 29.7 percent during the first quarter, and appliance manufacturer Whirlpool has seen sales fall all over the planet…

Whirlpool, the world’s biggest appliance manufacturer, has become the poster child for the deep challenges facing multinational companies these days.

– Latin American sales plunged 22%.

– Revenue fell 8% in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

– Asia sales dipped 2%.

When is it finally going to sink in for most people? The global economy is slowing down significantly, and the next global economic crisis is already here.

Of course the oil companies are feeling more pain than anyone else. According to CNN, the crash in the price of oil has cost the 40 largest publicly-traded U.S. oil producers 67 billion dollars…

American oil companies are drowning in a sea of red ink.

The crash in crude oil prices caused a stunning $67 billion in combined losses by 40 publicly-traded U.S. oil producers last year, according Energy Information Administration research. And the bleeding is expected to continue at least early this year for many.

The losses surpassed $1 billion each from struggling oil companies like EOG Resources (EOG), Devon Energy (DVN) and Linn Energy (LINE) as well as SandRidge Energy (SD), the shale oil driller that recently admitted it’s exploring a bankruptcy filing.

That is an astounding amount of money.

These days we throw around terms like “millions” and “billions” so much that they almost lose their meaning.

But this is real money that we are talking about here.

In recent days, Barack Obama has been running around boasting that he saved the world economy from another Great Depression. But that isn’t true at all. Instead, our “leaders” have simply set the stage for a larger and more painful crisis. I like the way that Doug Casey recently put it…

You’ve got to remember that all of these governments and central banks all around the world have driven interest rates not just to zero, but to negative levels in some cases… and they are simultaneously printing up trillions of currency units. And even while they are desperately doing that the economy is falling apart in lots of different ways.

…They’ve created a super-bubble in bonds, a bubble in stocks, and meanwhile commodities have collapsed and are below production costs in many cases.

…The economy is going to be very, very bad… It’s the next stage of what I call the Greater Depression.

Whether you want to call it a “Great Depression”, a “Greater Depression” or “The Greatest Depression”, the truth is that we are heading into a period of time that will be unlike anything any of us have ever experienced before.

The greatest debt bubble in the history of the planet is starting to implode, and this time the central bankers and the politicians are not going to be able to put the pieces back together again.

But just like in 2008, the vast majority of the population will not recognize the warning signs until it is way too late.

Good luck with that …

Why I Still Won’t Invest In Marijuana Stocks:

As you can see, stock prices spiked at the beginning of 2015 when there was a lot of buzz as to what the year would hold, and everyone was saying ‘the sky is the limit!’ Then reality set in, and the stocks started tumbling. Of course, stocks go up and down all the time, proven by the green and grey lines on the chart. However, The orange line, which represents marijuana stocks, basically nosedived throughout the year.

Eventually we will see some good marijuana stocks out there, backed by strong companies with strong products and/or services. However, the ones that I see out there almost always involve some type of CBD product that has low grade ingredients from overseas, or some type of product that would be more fitting for a pyramid scheme. That’s not to say that there isn’t a company out there that has a great product and also offers stocks, but I have yet to see it, for what that’s worth.

Ultimately, it's a commodity plant.

Imagine if I said "There's a fortune to be made in investing in stocks of companies that grow spinach!"

Or "The cherry orchard companies are poised to make double-digit gains year on year."

Or even: Immigration continues, so Goya, the company that packages and sells dry beans, is just going to rise and rise.

Truth is that yes, people are always going to eat spinach and cherries. The demand for those things gradually rises with the population, and the market will never (ever) disappear for either of those commodities or toilet paper for that matter. And yes, Latin immigration does mean a steady rise in market share of beans and rice, because those are traditional staples down there, and will inevitably grow up here. But they will eventually plateau. And stay there.

You will never go broke investing in spinach, cherries and beans, but you're never going to get rich either. They're commodities, they grow, they're cheap, and people already buy as much of those things as they want. So it won't spike, it won't fall. It'll just grind out the traditional 3% year after year, as foodstuffs do.

Marijuana is just a plant. It's like tobacco - a recreational plant. A certain portion of the population smokes. And that takes a certain amount of the plant per person. Tobacco can expand its market overseas, but that's mostly done. They can manipulate nicotine (something that can't really be done with spinach, beans and cherries), but they already did that, and were taken to task by lawsuits. Tobacco had its big explosion, and now it has settled down into a commodity. The profit margin is a little bit higher than beans and spinach, because of the addiction factor. 4% over time, versus 3%, but lawsuits and regulatory costs rip the excess profit away. It's a plant, and you get your 3%,

Marijuana was illegal, and expensive therefore, Legalized, it's a commodity. It will have it's growing market spike, as the result of deregulation, but then it settles down to be spinach or beans or tobacco. 4%, even 5% because of the glamor. Hand back 2% because of the legal issues. Get your 3%. Like any other farm product, or toilet paper, or any other basic, simple thing that comes out of something that easily grows in the ground.

Therefore you've swallowed the Deckard bullshit to the point of brainwashed. You obviously haven't been to Colorado to buy marijuana. Colorado has some varieties of pot 10 times (by the ounce) more expensive that the illegal shit you buy in any other state.

You can't compare pot to prohibition. The dynamics are completely different.

Fascinating, I wasn't aware of that. Could you describe the differences between these varieties, and why people are willing to pay 10 times for some of them?

#10. To: GrandIsland, Vicomte13 (#8)

I see your point and I also see the point Vic is making.

It is still a product and whatever grade it may be, supply and demand comes in. What will change in Canada this year over last year to increase the producers profit. They either have to sell more or reduce their expenses. Will that happen … time will tell.

Jojoba oil was a similar situation many years ago. Investors went crazy to buy stocks in newly formed growing companies. The results were the same as the chart above depicts for MJ. Oh, Jojoba oil is still sold today … but no one got rich from the stock and I don’t believe anyone can invest specifically in Jojoba growth today.

One can still see rows of Jojoba plants growing today in the desert along Interstate 8 when driving from Phoenix to San Diego. They have not been tended in, say 20 years or more ...

No... I'm not gonna help you CLOUD the fact I posted with your drug loving libtarded yella bullshit. Just trust me when I say the average street price on pot by the ounce is much much less than some of the legal pot you can by in Colorado.

What's your point? Some whiskeys cost 10 times more than others.

Listen dipshit, it was you and the other AGENDA posters who claim the governments war on drugs drives up the price. I never said that... and like anything else, it's obviously the same factors as anything legal that dictates the price.

I've never smoked marijuana (or eaten it, or anything-else-it).

Over time it will be legalized all across the US and the Western world.

And as that happens, the price will move towards a commodity price, like tobacco.

Until then, the legal risk and uncertainty jack up the price.

It's simple economics.

AEM,AU,AKG,ABX,BTG,CDE,DRD,EGO,EXK,SILJ,AG,FSM,FNV,GG,GPL,HL,IAG,KGC,MVG,GDX,GDX J,MUX,NGD,NEM,NG,PAAS,PVG,GOLD,RIC,RGLD,SAND,SSRI, SLW,TAHO,AUY.

Check them out and you will find that all are on a tear from their low and a number are up more than 200%.
