Apple ‘A Broken Company’: Gundlach

Apple stock could be headed to a level of $425 per share this quarter, DoubleLine CEO Jeff Gundlach said after the company reported disappointing earnings Wednesday.

"I think this is really a broken company that is over-owned," he said on "Fast Money."

Apple reported better-than-expected earnings, but its revenue fell slightly short of forecasts during the crucial holiday quarter.

For the fiscal first quarter, it posted net income of $13.07 billion, or $13.81 a diluted share, compared to $13.06 billion, or $13.87 a share, a year earlier. This is the first time in years that Apple didn't post a double-digit earnings increase.

Gundlach also said that Apple stock remained "very, very much in the public's psyche," which would keep share prices artificially high.

He also took a shot at Apple's huge cash balance on hand.

"That doesn't exactly call for a huge multiple," he added.
