Top investor Jeffrey Gundlach weighed in on what Apple's shocking revenue warning on Wednesday means for the broader stock market.
"This is the kind of stuff that happens in a bear market," said Gundlach, whose firm DoubleLine Funds manages more than $120 billion, in an e-mail to CNBC's Scott Wapner.

Analysts expected revenue of $91.3 billion for the period, according to the consensus estimate from FactSet. Apple blamed most of the revenue shortfall for struggling business in China.

The company had some strong things to say about the Chinese economy which could raise fears of global economic slowdown.
"While we anticipated some challenges in key emerging markets, we did not foresee the magnitude of the economic deceleration, particularly in Greater China," Apple's CEO Tim Cook wrote in a letter to investors on the warning on Wednesday. "We believe the economic environment in China has been further impacted by rising trade tensions with the United States.
