Doug Kass on Apple - More Bad Things Ahead

January 23, 2013 | About:

Well-known investor and hedge fund manager Doug Kass of Seabreeze partners was on CNBC to discuss his views on Apple and why he is so bearish on Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). He thinks Apple is in for more bad times; this is just the beginning.

-- Don't believe results of the current quarter; they will not tell anything about the future of Apple.

-- Competition has intensified. Apple's iPhone is not the only good smartphone on the market and the iPad is not the only good table on the market.

-- He expects the first decline in year-over-year profit growth since 2003. He thinks it will miss the street estimates but will be above its own estimates.

-- He said the average selling price of Apple devices will continue to decline; the iPhone impact will be muted going forward.

-- What we need to watch for is gross margin. The company has guided a four percentage-point decline in gross margin. Analysts expect it to be around 38%, but there is no consensus on the margin going forward.
