Top 10 Penny Stocks To Invest In 2019


5 p.m. Update:  Apple stock slipped more than 2% in after hours trading as the Q4 AAPL earnings disappointed Wall Street despite higher-than-expected iPhone sales.

Apple earned $1.67 a share in its fiscal Q4, one penny higher than the consensus analyst forecast. Revenue was $$46.9 billion, just short of the forecast for sales of $46.94 billion. However, the Q4 Apple earnings were down 14.8% from the same period a year ago. Revenue was off 8.93% year over year.

Despite conflicting predictions, the iPhone 7 did well enough to push total iPhone sales above expectations. Sales of the iPhone brought in $28.16 billion, edging the forecast for sales of $27.78 billion.


That bodes well for the current quarter, when Apple traditionally sells the most iPhones.

Other good news in the AAPL earnings was guidance for the current quarter. Apple forecast revenue of $76 billion to $78 billion, well above the $74.9 billion analysts had been expecting.

On the negative side, Mac and iPad sales both continued to slide. Both segments came in below expectations.
