    Nomura Instinet reduced its estimate for Apple’s 2019 earnings to $11.39 a share, down from $11.50 a share.

    “Trade tension hurt China iPhone demand this winter; we would assume the same would apply again,” Kvaal said.

    Additionally, Kvall said the firm does “not believe Apple would benefit materially” if Chinese competitor Huawei had its phones targeted by the U.S. in an “export ban.”
