Nikkei again claims ‘weak demand’ for iPhone X despite much evidence to the contrary

In an article published on Nikkei, they once again predict weak demand from the sales of the iPhone X. This, like every other report by Nikkei has always been proven to be false and not based on any real data or facts.
One may wonder why they persist in every year with the same predictions for every iPhone. In the last one the share price of Apple dropped for a short time until they reported record sales and profits. Perhaps that is their intention to affect the market and make profits for some?

As stated in a post on MacDailyNews:
Even if a particular data point were factual it would be impossible to accurately interpret the data point as to what it meant for our overall business… There is just an inordinate[ly] long list of things that would make any single data point not a great proxy for what’s going on. Apple CEO Tim Cook, January 23, 2013

iPhone X was the best-selling smartphone in the world in the December quarter according to Canalys, and it has been our top selling phone every week since it launched. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus rounded out the top three iPhones in the quarter. In fact, revenue for our newly launched iPhones was the highest of any lineup in our history, driving total Apple revenue above our guidance range… The iPhone X was the most popular and that’s particularly noteworthy given that we didn’t start shipping until early November, and we’re constrained for a while. The team did a great job of getting into supply demand balance there in December. But since the launch of iPhone X, it has been the most popular iPhone every week, every week sales. And that is even through today, actually through January… We feel fantastic, particularly as it pertains to iPhone X. — Apple CEO Tim Cook, February 1, 2018

In another article, it completely contradicts Nikkei.
