Over-Analyzation and the Market

Apple made record profits and sold a record number of iPhones last quarter. That’s good news, and means the market for their product is still very strong. Some Ivy-educated, number-crunching analyst though said that Apple should have had higher profits and sold more iPhones last quarter when they did their analysis three months ago, so guess what? Apple stock is crashing down today on the global and American markets.

This is one of those things that only people who really understand Wall Street get. That’s because it defies basic logic. If Apple is making more money than ever, it should be more valuable. Frankly, some analyst shouldn’t carry more weight than that. Yes, I get that trading is done on analysts’ assumptions, but that’s kind of part of the problem.
