Apple Stock Hits a Three Month Low Amid Warnings from iPhone Suppliers

Apple Stock Hits a Three Month Low Amid Warnings from iPhone Suppliers

"Also, the chances of further tax reform are close to zero, so I don't expect any more material reductions in Apple's reported tax rate", said Forbes' Jim Collins. Japan Display lowered both sales and margin outlook for the year as well.

The company did not name the chipmaker, but is a major supplier to US -based Lumentum Holdings Inc (LITE.O) which slashed its forecasts on Monday and said that one of its largest customers would "materially reduce" shipments for the current quarter. "This raises an incremental risk for the rest of the supply chain".

Chinese technology giant Huawei's latest Mate 20 series is hurting Apple's sales even as it is not a big player in the US, Kuo added in the note.

Shares in Lumentum fell almost 30 percent, dragging down shares of other suppliers and chipmakers.

Apple was punting on this product to drive new sales. Fewer people can afford to pay that much for a new device. "Apple got cautious in their guidance and it's hitting their suppliers", Elazar Capital analyst Chaim Siegel said. The company said that it received reduced orders from a major tech firm that is one of its largest customers for 3D sensing components.

Consumers in general are not as keen on the XR as Apple thought they would be.

Following a poor forecast earlier this month, analysts and investors voiced concern over the state of Apple's business, contributing to growing worries that iPhone sales were stagnating and could hurt suppliers. These two companies are also Apple's 2nd and 3rd largest suppliers of VCSEL arrays - behind Lumentum - for augmented reality applications.

Apple has now sold over a billion iPhones in total. Bank of America analysts were more optimistic, writing that the announcement could indicate an inventory build and an earlier start to production, which "could magnify the perceived impact of these cuts". Apple said it preferred to focus on the company's transition to a services company, with regular recurring revenue.

Apple's iPhone XR, which boasts the iPhone X's edge-to-edge display, albeit using older LCD pixels instead of the X's high-resolution OLED screen, was widely expected to fuel a massive wave of upgrades from users of the iPhone 6S or earlier models. After an outcry, the company offered cheap battery upgrades, extending the life of many handsets.

Speculation from news organizations like Reuters are reporting that the company to which Lumentum is referring to is Apple. Apple's shares are down more than $9 this morning, crossing under the $200 mark for the first time in months.
