Apple bulls on Wall Street were unfazed by mixed fiscal second-quarter financial results and stayed optimistic over the upcoming iPhone 8 launch.

The smartphone maker reported better-than-expected earnings Tuesday after the close, but iPhone shipments fell short of Wall Street estimates. Apple shares traded down 1 percent at the open of trading Wednesday in response to the earnings report.

Nearly 75 percent of Wall Street analysts still have buy ratings on Apple, according to FactSet.
