AAPL beat forecasts and TWTR missed, but don't follow the herd.
Revenues fell by almost 15% to $7.2 billion, while a lot of inventory liquidation took place. EBITD also declined by $4.5 billion, which is what happens when a company liquidates inventory. Apple's China sales also fell (Carl Icahn's pet peeve). Management strongly suggested that the China market would be OK over the longer term, but noted that the Chinese economy was slowing significantly. The U.S. dollar's 7% rise against the Chinese yuan doesn't help. Free cash flow remains strong, with $12.6 billion of EBITD compared to $4.2 billion of capital spending. Share count is also down 4.3% year over year. At premarket pricing of around $103, AAPL trades at only 5.4x trailing-twelve-month EBITD. However, EBITD is almost definitely moving lower -- at least for the next two quarters. As I suggested above, bulls will point out that Apple's services revenue will go up methodically as the company's "sticky" installed base grows. But services revenues remain dependent on Apple's hardware sales -- which have peaked. The bottom line: Apple's shares have moved back to a level ($100 to $105) where I see a more-favorable risk-vs.-reward quotient by staying on the short side.
We believe the company is well on its way to spiraling out of control.
