Apple’s Profit Rocket Hits Air Pocket

Apple’s blockbuster revenue growth is slowing drastically, as iPhone sales plateau and the company finds itself lacking revolutionary new products.

The company’s warning, issued Wednesday as part of its financial results for the holiday quarter, sent Apple Inc.’s stock plunging by more than 10 percent, wiping out a year’s worth of gains.

Analysts said the warning suggested Apple can no longer sustain its growth without some completely new products. Its last revolutionary creation, the iPad, was launched in 2010. Co-founder Steve Jobs, who was the engine behind the creation of the iPod, iPhone and iPad, died in 2011.

“It has been an overriding concern with Apple that they would not be able to generate revenue growth just rolling out new versions of old products,” said Jeff Sica, president and chief investment officer of SICA Wealth Management. “Now they’ve proven it in their numbers.”

On a conference call with analysts, Apple CEO Tim Cook rebutted that idea, but as usual, gave no details.
“We’re working on some incredible stuff. The pipeline is chock full,” he said.
