11:01 pm
this is the world's most valuable company. it released earnings after markets closed in the u.s. shares rose post-post-release, and post market -- of both post-release and post market. numbers are falling. unit look at revenue and thatts, profits were not good. several billion yet less than last year. iphone t means that the model, peoplest were doubting whether it was a little too expensive for but it pickedts, up traction. that seems to be what is saving apples numbers, especially when you look at projections. 45 point $5 billion -- $45.5
11:02 pm
billion. that is the bottom end of the target range for apple, if you look at the projections. as far as that is concerned, it seems to be over growth. sales are falling. another thing to mention, the cfo basically said at the start of this, for the past quarter, they were not able to keep up with they have put in the necessary capacity to meet back up -- demand, so they do expect this for the next three months. the iphone is still the most important product for apple. close to two thirds of revenue, and closed his 60 -- close to 60%. 67% comes from selling the iphone. 40 million phones. to put that into context, the quarter that includes christmas, the first fiscal quarter for apple, they typically sell more
11:03 pm
than $70 million -- 70 million. angie: and as we move toward the seven, from better than expected performing se. you have to know your iphone lingo. what about china? how much of a role does it still continue to play for apple? david: it is the third biggestdavid: market. over 40% of revenue, then here, then china, then the rest of asia. up. is how china divvies 21%. but have a look at the absolute numbers coming from china. revenue there from greater china, including hong kong, has been falling for three quarters. it is lower than the seasonally good as quarter you typically get. is below $10 billion for the
11:04 pm
first time in sometime. what the cfo has said is there are several problems. obviously competition, a macro problem as in a slowdown, and then the currency. you have a weaker currency, so then when they repatriated back, you get a weaker dollar value. the economy slowed down, there .re macro conditions when you look at the billions in the market, everyone is saying that anyway. it is a challenge. interesting that tim cook identified india is the fastest-growing market. david: he is looking at 51% year on year sales, backwards looking. what is interesting is he is looking toward retail stores there. angie: and india letting him do it. so, by the stock or sell? buy the stock. that seems to be the overwhelming recommendation.

11:07 pm
tuesdays rba board meeting is very much alive. angie: we are seeing the weaker aussie dollar. thank you for that let's get back to the markets. paul talking about ammunition for the rba. what about from the boj? there is reports that prime be will announce the details of the stimulus package. it will be ¥27 trillion. wee a look at the weakness have seen coming through in the japanese yen as that report hit the bloomberg. 1.2%, aftern by yesterday's surging 1.1%, the most since brexit. big weakness coming through in the japanese yen, now heading back toward the 106 handle. we had japanese equities over lunch break, but they did go up by over 1%.
11:08 pm
you would expect more strength as the yen continues to weaken. also, let's show you the offshore renminbi. we had the pboc actually strengthening the rate for the second session, and that is as we saw the currency track gains in the broader is pretty flat , 6.6769. markets, most regional indices tracking back higher on the back of those gains in japan. if it stays at this level, we will close at the highest level year.october of last paul was mentioning the cpi figure in australia. more strength coming back into equities there, particularly in the mining space here it apple suppliers boosting a number of equity markets, so taiwan in particular is pretty fat -- flat on the kospi, but some weakness coming through on the shanghai market. other than that, looking pretty good. angie: thank you. let's check in on some stories we are following for you.

11:36 pm
inflation, require policy response, and all the risk and balance. it would not be a good mix. of course also in the mix would be if donald trump was to label china as a currency manipulator, that would trigger severe tensions with china. the u.s. and china are big trading partners. china is the world's biggest trading economy. angie: there is something that and we and rnc agree on, heard it from bernie sanders yesterday, which is defeat pete -- tpp. which is what donald trump wants. that is a valuable asset, if it is approved in this region. reporter: it is, for economies like vietnam, or economies like japan. shinzo abe has staked a lot of political capital on it. if there's no guarantee teedo people pass -- tpp will pass in the current administration, or either of the presidencies that might come.
