Unfortunately Wall Street wanted $1.80 a share and they only delivered $1.76 - 34 cents better than what Apple expected, but not good enough for the Street. Bummer for shareholders.

"Apple’s quarterly earnings beat the estimates of Wall Street analysts. According to Thomson Financial, analysts expected Apple to earn $1.62 a share on sales of $9.47 billion."

"For the quarter ended December 31, Apple reported a profit of $1.76 a share on revenue of $9.6 billion. Earnings per share rose 54 percent over the year-ago quarter, while revenue rose 35 percent."

Where did you get 1.80?

The market overall did bad today, too. Sadly, many people lost faith in the economy and the political system.
