Your thinking differs greatly from that of most investors.  A significant one quarter decline can have a large impact on stock prices.  In the electronics industry, five quarters is a long time.

- It is even less meaningfull if you do not know why.

Decreased shipments almost always mean lower demand.  What information do you think one should obtain in order to consider the data meaningful?

Withotut a longer period, and reasining, all we can say is that there are les sales now than a year ago. That is all. We cannot say anything about its significance nor iof it means anything for the future.
