Jefferies' Peter Misek, a long-time Apple (AAPL +1.2%) bull, is slashing his FQ1 iPad shipment forecast to 14M units from a prior 17M, citing Europe's macro woes and the iPad's unsubsidized pricing. Misek's new forecast is still above a 13M analyst consensus, but he considers upside to either number "less likely" thanks to the Kindle Fire's early success. (Goldman concerns)
