Apple suppliers haven't responded well to Jefferies' note about high iPhone channel inventories, build order cuts, app processor production cuts, and memory reallocations. CRUS -4.4%. OVTI -5.7%. SWKS -3.5%. RFMD -3.5%. STM -3.9%. NTE -4.6%. NXPI -5.4%. InvenSense (INVN -7.4%), which isn't yet an Apple supplier but is expected to be one soon, is also off sharply.

  • This is completely idiotic. Most of those sell as much into the android channel as into Apple.

  • If Apple isn't selling as many iphone 5's as projected, Samsung has to cut their Galaxy S4 orders, and BBRY is seeing lackluster adoption of BB10, then who's gaining in the Smartphone wars?

  • Mostly Chinese makers manufacturing cheaper smartphones. Nevertheless most of the above stocks cell into those chinese makers. Really the only company from the above that actually deserves a sell off is CRUS, because they have not been able to place their products within the android ecology.

  • replacement cycle is also longer in developed markets. When smartphones first hit, many upgraded annually. Now, every 2 yrs is much more the norm.
