Stock Prices of Japanese Suppliers Slip in Response to Apple's Earnings

Negative reactions to Apple's Q1 2014 earnings report extended overseas to Japanese component manufacturers, says Reuters. Suppliers such as Taiyo Yuden, TDK, Sharp and Nitto Denko saw their stock prices fall by as much as 3.9 percent following the release of Apple's quarterly financial results.

Stock prices of these Japanese suppliers are expected to rebound because of their broad client base, but Japanese analysts believe Apple will remain stagnant.
"The company is unlikely to expect profit growth from now on as the iPhone market has been saturated," a fund manager at a Japanese asset management firm said. "In order to sell in China and emerging countries, the company needs to cut prices more aggressively, so there is also pressure on parts makers."
Despite these negative global projections, demand for Apple products in Japan remains strong. During Apple's earning conference call, Tim Cook said iPhone sales rose 40% in Japan, due to a new distribution deal with the country's largest mobile operator NTT Docomo.

Hmm I never knew Taiyo Yuden made things besides recordable disc media...


Me either!

I've used Taiyo Yuden DVD-R for years... which are now being sold under the JVC brand name after Taiyo Yuden acquired JVC's media division.

I've never had a problem with TY media... and I burn about 500 discs every year!

The entire NIKKEI 225 was down 5% until this morning (recovered over 2%). That started Friday, I seriously doubt apple is dragging the exchange down.

And Samsung's profit and margins? Expectations on Apple are over the top, but they have made history. Incremental changes won't improve profits. Next new thing will


People need to stop worrying about what Samsung does. If Samsung falls off the face of the earth another Android OEM will take its place. If Apple falls off that’s it; game over. People act as Android is a one trick pony.
