Foxconn's first quarter sales drop as iPhone demand slows down
Hon Hai posted sales of nearly $27 billion for the January-March period, a huge decline from the some $32.98 billion sales in Q4 2012 and the $33.37 billion in Q1 2012.
"A quarterly decline was expected, but not a yearly decline," Ming-chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI Securities said.
Hon Hai has obviously become too dependent on Apple relying on it for 60% to 70% of its revenue stream.
We have been hearing talks about Apple fading out of relevance for years on, but this time we have a trend of Apple stock going down and now these negative signals from Apple’s biggest manufacturer.
Is this the beginning of the end as analysts have long speculated, or just normal seasonal fluctuations that Apple will overcome with its forthcoming 2013 device portfolio, what do you think?
