Closing factories in China is costing Apple $1 billion in revenue per week, threatening to lower sales during the holiday season, the busiest season of the year.

These delays are primarily due to the closure of one of China’s largest factories following an escalation of coronavirus-related injuries that erupted yesterday in demonstrations and clashes between workers and security officials who prevented workers from entering the factory. The high level of inflationary pressure on the company’s expected sales has led analysts to lower their estimates for the company’s earnings for this quarter, and this, in turn, could lead to increased pressure on Apple’s share price. Each week of factory closures in China costs the company $1 billion in revenue and lowers its share price by one cent, according to consulting firm Jefferies.
