Apple had the best Quarter of any company ever and why nobody cares...

Not just the best Quarter, but the best Qarter ever recorded in history by any company. EVER!

Still, many people feel down about Apple and here is why in two simple graphs that I found at sixcolors.com

Growth for the iPhone has levelled off, iPod is dead and the iPad seems to follow the same trajectory in spite of the iPad Pro launch. The only constant is the Mac - maybe Apple will be a computer company again at some point in the distant future.

This however shows the real problem - zero or negative growth in all categories. This is what scares investors (that's why Alphabet became the most valuable company ahead of Apple last week - based on stock market evaluation). Apple had profits of up to 6 billion$ per month last quarter (PROFIT!) and the Apple stockprice did this:

(Apple Stockprice over the last 5 days 30th. of January to 3rd. of February)

(Apple Stockprice over the last 5 days 30th. of January to 3rd. of February)

That's right - it did nothing. We live in a screwed up world.
