Wall Street Analysts Cut Apple Estimates Over Rumored iPhone 5 Delay

Wall Street analysts have begun cutting Apple estimates after rumors that the iPhone 5 won’t launch on its previously expected schedule, according to Business Insider.

Reputable sites such as The Loop and TechCrunch have all predicted that Apple will not unveil the iPhone 5 at WWDC or launch the device this summer. Many are predicting a fall or even early 2012 launch.

With that in mind analysts are now revising their Apple estimates. Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, for example, announced the following cuts in a note today:
● FY 2011 revenue trimmed 4% to $103 billion from $106.9 billion (Apple’s fiscal year ends in Sept.)
● FY 2011 EPS trimmed 5% to $23.03 from $24.17 (still above $22.93 consensus)
● FY 2011 iPhone shipments cut 8% to 65.7 million from 71.7 million (basically a 15% cut for the June and Sept. quarters)
● FY 2012 iPhone shipments cut 6% to 89.1 million from 94.9 million
