I love the market analysts...

"We had a record quarter!"

"Yeah, but not as good as we said you would do, so we'll take your stock down a peg or two as punishment!"

No, this isn't in defence of Apple, this is just about the stupidity of the markets. A company forecasts turnover and profit, and exceeds what they forecast, but an analyst says they should have made even more is correct? No wonder there is no sustainability built into modern business.
