Analyst: Apple Cuts June iPhone Orders by 600,000

Apple has cut iPhone orders by 600,000 units, according to Collins Stewart analyst Ashok Kumar. According to Barron's Tech Trader Daily, Mr. Kumar told clients in a research note that Apple cut production orders from 5.2 to 4.6 million units for the current quarter, despite the newly annnounced iPhone 3GS.

Mr. Kumar wrote that his numbers came from checks with Hon Hai, the Tawainese manufacturer that makes the iPhone for Apple. September numbers are estimated between 6.5 and 7.5 million, and he noted that the midpoint - million units - would be flat year-over-year.

The analyst maintained his "Buy" rating on the stock with the caveat that current order levels for the iPhone "present a risk to Apple."

Shares in AAPL dipped early, continuing to shed pre-WWDC gains in the wake of the announcements Apple made Monday morning. The stock began to regain some of those losses, but is still in the red at US$140.00 per share, down $2.72 (-1.91%) on moderately strong volume.

Yet all attempts to pre-order through AT&T are thwarted because they have no info on pre-ordering. The people at AT&T stores are being kept in the dark about the new iPhone. Then again, their own company’s culpability in this downgrade of orders can’t be overlooked. Customers aren’t happy about the lack of MMS support and tethering from the get go.

Not despite the new iPhone model—because of it!

The rumors of it and its late June arrival would naturally have dampened demand.

I would be interested to know over the next few months, what percentage of iPhone sales are the now $99 model - the 3G, rather than the 3GS.

There are many analysts that make predictions related to Apple and Apple products. What would be nice to know in addition to their predictions is the accuracy of their past predictions. Does anyone know how accurate Ashok Kumar has been with his past predictions?

This most recent claim of a cut in production needs to be put in perspective. First of all, is it real? Second of all, if it is real, could it just mean that Apple is being more cautious among many other possibilities? Hard to know what this means without perspective. Once the rollout date comes around, I am sure we will find out what the right perspective is. In the grand scheme of things, I think it will much ado about nothing.
