9:06 pm
growth. it is a great generator for apple, and if it is not growing, apple is not going. rishaad: i guess we have to wait for the next iphone, the next iteration. the iphone 7. could that change the game? paul: historically that has been what has happened. iphone 6 was the big generator recently. 7 is the one people are looking forward to. the trouble apple has is that is not obvious in the future that it will change things. the market for smartphones is an increasingly mature market with not much innovation. 50% of people never upgraded their iphone 5's. that's the problem apple faces on the 7. rishaad: are investors looking at apple and not giving credit where credit is due, given these record profits? you can't take those away from them. paul: no, you can't.
9:07 pm

rishaad: apple seeing its first sales decline in a decade.
9:13 pm
smartphone sales declined. smartphone sales last year rose by less than 10% for the first time ever. let's bring in vice president of client devices resource. he joins us from singapore. brian, great to see you. let's start by looking at these number and what they manage to do in their latest quarter. these were very, very strong numbers, no matter how you cut them. brian: yep, absolutely. if you look at the historical data and all the activity behind that iphone, it is a tremendous amount of momentum. the worry is where the company goes forward from here, especially as you pointed out, in the upcoming quarter. are they finally starting to see a contraction? rishaad: right. that is just is -- is that anything to worry about? candy reclaim the momentum, or is it gone forever? -- can they reclaim the momentum? brian: on paper it is.
9:14 pm
you can't blame investors were getting worried. you look at macroeconomic headwinds, the smartphone economic market maturing and stabilizing. apple saying that next market is going to be -- next quarter is going to be worse. it is not as bad as it seems. if you peel the layers of the onion, there are some things to keep in mind. the year on year comparisons are abnormally high. this time last year, apple's first launch of the 6 series, there was a lot of pent-up demand. people were clamoring for apple to release a big screen phone. we saw a lot of that momentum in the past quarter -- sorry, in the calendar fourth quarter. a lot of that trickled into the fourth -- into the first quarter of last year. looking at the year on year comparisons, we have to keep that in mind. there is still of that lingering effect. the other thing is china. there is always this concerned that china is slowing down. there is a macroeconomic effect. what we are seeing on the ground
9:15 pm
is the opposite. there is a lot of strong demand for iphones in china. there is competitive pressure. but it is still a case where if you look at the demand in china, you could argue it is relatively immune to the effects you are seeing on a larger level. this is something that will likely propel it going forward, let alone into the iphone 7, which could bring things up further as well. rishaad: but we don't know yet, do we? what gives you this inherent confidence that the chinese market can come back? what about, also, the indian market? that is one which is under-penetraded, rife for smartphones to be piling in there. and it has not really happened. brian: i am less optimistic about india. the numbers will be big, but that is because they are coming from a smaller base.
9:16 pm
the challenge with india is that the sides of the middle class is much smaller. the average selling price between china and india is a genetic difference. -- a dramatic difference. they tend to be $100-150 u.s. dollars prices, which is quite different from what is going on in china. is not to say apple can't address that market either. there are a lot of other conflict of these in india, including just the distribution system, the terror of structure. -- the tarriff structure. that is why i think they are prioritizing more on china for the time being. rishaad: given your enthusiasm for apple, what would it take for somebody not to be including this in their portfolio? up, iason i bring that was talking to it a manager who said it's impossible for him not to include apple. it is too big to ignore at the end of the day. brian: exactly.
9:17 pm
if you are going to take the pessimistic view, it is a bit of a short-term deal. framing in mind what we just mentioned, the outlook for the next couple quarters, the iphone 6-s, which wasn't as great as the original 6. that momentum is trailing down. in the next 1-2 quarters, things might not look as good. about the iphone 7, if you are an optimist, it might not be as great as the iphone 6, but a much more bigger improvement than what the 6-s was. you will see that pick up in the coming years. the big debate is longer-term. inevitably the smartphone market is maturing. apple has so much revenue. two thirds of its revenue based on the iphone. what is the next big thing apple is going after? virtual reality, cars, is it going to be wearables?
9:18 pm
everybody is trying to figure this out. they are trying to figure this out. to the point you were making -- look at the amount of cash apple has, the amount of talent they have in the company, and their track record. they're not the first to go into these markets, but as they see the potential develop, they are able to figure out the lightweight to make it profitable. -- the right way to make it profitable. it may not be as profitable as the iphone. but everything that surrounds the smartphone industry will be around for a good number of years. it will be a huge profit-making machine. other companies would die to have those kinds of profits that apple is generating today. rishaad: absolutely. thank you so much for that brian. joining us from singapore. a look at thee stories making headlines around the world. the thai prime minister has promised elections next year, even if a new constitution is rejected. in a referendum in the coming pushing forated
