The market seems unenthused with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL)'s quarterly results, as the stock is down more than 6 percent, but what do analysts have to say about the print?

With sales guidance coming in below consensus expectations ($41-53 billion vs. $47 billion), gross margin outlook short (37.5–8 percent vs. expected 39.2 percent), average sales price for the iPhone missing the mark ($642 vs. $659) and EPS off target ($1.90 vs. estimated $2), the negatives paint a bleak picture.

However, in true mixed fashion, there were positives as well, including iPhone unit sales ahead of estimates (51.2 million vs. 50 million for the quarter), capital return and buyback updates, $11.6 billion OCF, $10 billion via buybacks and dividends to shareholders, $153 net cash and a revenue beat for iTunes software and services.

Below is a brief look at what the Street has been saying.
