APPLE WHIFFS AS IPHONE COMES IN LIGHT, STOCK TANKS

This Tech Earnings Update is brought to you by Verizon.

Apple's numbers are out!

And they don't look good. As you can see below, Apple missed the expectations of buy-side investors, pretty much across the board.

The thing that should make investors super worried is that iPhone sales were 47.8 million for the quarter. The buy-side was looking for 50 million units.

The stock is off in after-hour trading by 10%.
