Apple Watch Pre-Orders Explode
This entry was posted on Thursday, April 16, 2015.
Trip Chowdhry, with Global Equities Research, wrote this week that Apple might sell as many 2.5 million Apple watch devices through pre-orders next week. That's more than twice as many wearable devices as the most recent estimates. But that's the direction opinions have been trending.
Initially some in the industry had thought that Apple watch pre-orders would come in lower than expectations. How much lower? It depends on who you asked. Regardless of what the talk has been, the new talk is much more positive.
“Apple is not expected to announce weekend Pre-orders, since they stated in their previous earnings call, that do not want to provide this information to the competition."
“However, based on our research, we estimate, that pre-orders this weekend will comfortably exceed 2.5 million watches."
“Also, we are comfortable with our CY2015 estimates that Apple will sell 40 to 42 million Apple Watches.”
