Apple announced their quarterly numbers after the market closed on Tuesday.

In after hours trading the Apple stock lost 11% and currently is at $137.93.

Besides the missed forecast the iPod shipments during the Holidays also disappointed Wall Street with 22.1 million units. This is an increase of 5% over the same period a year earlier, but below analysts’ expectations which have been between 22.4 and 25 million units.
Apple shipped 2.3 million iPhones, 2.3 million Mac computers in the last quarter.

Apple, known for its conservative financial forecasts, said earnings for the second quarter would be 94 cents per share, versus the average analyst target of $1.08, and revenue of $6.8 billion, versus Wall Street's $7.0 billion target.
