Before Apple released its earnings report on Tuesday, we decided to conduct a little test to see just how full of shit analysts really are. We took a look at what the consensus for Apple’s earnings would be among Wall St. analysts, and we added into the mix the prediction of a random commenter we found on a blogpost on CNN. We wanted to see who was more capable of accurately predicting what Apple’s earnings would be, and the results, depending on your point of view, weren’t all that surprising.
The random guy from CNN’s post was TimboM from Madison, WI, and though the actual post has been removed, there’s a cached version you can check out over here. I was also able to grab a snapshot of his prediction for good measure.
