Yeah, it's always the guidance.

..Apple's a big company...actually it's mammoth..

..think of a massive ship, (please not the Titanic) but a huge cargo ship in open warm seas with light winds..

..let's say you want to make a 20 degree turn to port..

..the engineer enters the correction into the ship's computer (earnings) and waits..

..if we were in a speed boat, (small cap stock) that quick turn of the wheel might toss folks around, or even overboard if they weren't ready..

..but that same turn in the 1,200 foot long cargo ship, (Apple) takes some time to make its move.. fact, the turn may not even be noticed by anyone onboard.. (shareholders)..

..give the market some time to digest earnings, and in a week or two you'll see Apple make its move..

..good luck!..
