iPhone Sales - Q3
The analysis was carried out by 28 Wall Street professionals and 17 amateurs. As to the pros, they predicted that Apple would come up with 26.7 million handsets sold over this quarter, while the amateurs claimed the number would be a bit higher - 27.9 million.
Two years ago Apple reported the 113% of annual growth, last year - 28%. This year it all would be different as the devices, offered by the company from Cupertino, namely iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 are 36 months, 21 months and 9 months old, respectively. From this point of view, it’s good that sales are growing, no matter how rapidly indeed.
But let’s switch from the average results to individual estimates. This is when the results diversified. So, the highest estimate of as many as 32 million iPhones sold was submitted by Braeburn Group expert Matt Lew, and the lowest, of 23 million, by Lazard's Edward Parker.
However, these are not the official results. Apple will announce its earnings to public on July 23, so let’s wait to see whether the experts were right or not.
