Apple Selling Out of iPhones Again; Demand Remains Strong

| About: Apple Inc. (AAPL)

As of yesterday afternoon,133 Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) Stores now have stock of iPhones with 20 stores having sold out of their stock since Monday. This decline indicates that iPhone demand remains strong as we enter our third full week of iPhone availability.

The iPhone Buzz Index rose yesterday to 20,497, with nearly 1,000 more stories referencing the iPhone in 24 hours on Google News. You can see the graph below.


We have about one more week to wait until Apple earnings on July 25. I hope to hear official iPhone sales numbers from Apple on the conference call that day and to use those to tweak our models. Meanwhile, it's good to be back in the Boston area where broadband internet access -- both wired and wireless -- is a little more plentiful than out in the heartland of America.
