UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The spread of the coronavirus epidemic has disrupted markets in Asia and elsewhere, and affected supply chains around the world.
Multinational and local companies have been affected by the prolonged closure of factories in China, which have still not resumed production at full speed.
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) warned last week that it did not expect to meet its quarterly revenue forecast due to the lower global supply of iPhones and lower demand in China. Apple manufactures most iPhones and other products in China, and the epidemic caused it to temporarily stop production and close retail stores in China.
This led to the liquidation of shares of Apple suppliers in Asia last week, and more generally of technology stocks linked to chips and electronics.
