A downbeat note from Macquarie's Daniel Chang could be contributing to today's Apple (AAPL -2.1%) selloff. Chang, who covers Taiwanese names and is downgrading Foxconn (HNHAF.PK) to Neutral, has lowered his FQ1 (Dec. quarter) iPhone sales forecast to 44M from 48M, and his FQ2 forecast to 26M from 28M. Gene Munster, however, is his usual upbeat self: he notes Piper's latest survey of potential U.S. smartphone buyers found 53.3% thinking of getting an iPhone 5; an October survey reported 54.9%.
