Like Apple, HTC reportedly slowing orders of Samsung components

Things are really not going well for HTC (2498). The Wall Street Journal reports that the Taiwanese electronics manufacturer saw its profits decline 79% year-over-year as it reported “its lowest quarterly profit since 2006 as it continued to lose market share to its competitors.” HTC’s revenues in the third quarter of 2012 also fell by 48% year-over-year as the company has been increasingly overshadowed by rival Samsung (005930), which last week reported a record $7.3 billion profit in Q3 2012.
