Apple and Wall Street, A Love Story

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 01:35 PM

http://gigaom.com/apple/what-wall-s...(GigaOM:+Apple)

"Apple's record quarter is prompting a lot of analysts and Wall Street watchers to up their estimates for the stock's performance."

Well, maybe love story is too much but they certainly do like what Apple is doing and have increased their estimates regarding the stock's performance projection. This was in response to yesterday's financial report by Apple. Lots of good news in that report too including:

  • iPad sales up 111% to 15.4 million units;
  • iPhone Q1 sales were 37.04 million units;
  • Apple retail sales up 43% from last year at the same time;
  • Apple has $97.68 billion cash on hand;
  • Apple's Q1 revenue topped $46 billion.

Lots to digest for sure, including the news that Apple TV sales were 2.8 million units during the last fiscal year ending in September of 2011, but the little device that would not die set Q1 sales record with 1.4 million units sold. So 50% of last years total in the first quarter of this fiscal year is nothing to sneeze at, although it certainly doesn't reach the numbers of the other devices in the lineup. But then, why should it when it really isn't being pushed by Apple, and when it is still considered a "hobby" device in Tim Cook's words. What does give me hope that it will continue is that he said he couldn't live without it. What are your thoughts on the Apple fiscal report?

Verizon Releases Q1 Earnings...2.2 Million iPhones Sold

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 02:30 PM

http://www.tuaw.com/2011/04/21/veri...nes-in-q1-2011/

"This morning Verizon released its quarterly earnings for Q1 2011."

That is quite the number, 2.2 million iPhones sold in Q1 of 2011 for Verizon in only six weeks. This comes in under the 3.2 million iPhones that AT&T reports selling in Q1 but still impressive. The total number sold by AT&T and Verizon come in at 5.8 million, which is about 30% of the total Apple sold in the quarter. I'm thinking this number would have been higher for Verizon had this been the iPhone 5, but then again, that is due out later this year so it will be interesting to see what the numbers are then won't it?

Apple Financial, Yea, They are in Pretty Good Shape I'd Say

"Listening to Apple's quarterly conference calls these days is like watching a once-in-a-generation sports team demolish every other team in the league."

With growth from same time last year of 70% (yes, 70%) I'd say they did demolish everyone else. That is a pretty incredible number by anyone's standard. So impressive were most of their figures that they called the 23% growth in Mac sales "disappointing." Yea, it's only 8 times the growth of the PC market. Another figure I found interesting was that the retail division is a $16 billion dollar a year revenue source for Apple, and revenues from same time last year jumped 95%. The story we linked to has several other interesting tidbits from yesterdays financial call, and the stock market has taken notice since in early trading Apple Shares are at an all time high of $348.60 USD, gaining $7.95 USD, a new intraday high. You can see a transcript of the conference call here, or check it out at the Apple Investor site and hear the details yourself.

Apple 2010 Q1 Results

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 07:00 AM

http://smokingapples.com/asides/app...uarter-results/

"Apple today announced financial results for its fiscal 2010 first quarter ended December 26, 2009. The Company posted revenue of $15.68 billion and a net quarterly profit of $3.38 billion, or $3.67 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $11.88 billion and net quarterly profit of $2.26 billion, or $2.50 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 40.9 percent, up from 37.9 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 58 percent of the quarter's revenue."

And to top it off, according to the report, Apple "sold 3.36 million Macintosh computers during the quarter, representing a 33 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 8.7 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 100 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 21 million iPods during the quarter, representing an eight percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter."

Pretty solid quarter, and according to Steve Jobs, they are "planning to release this year are very strong, starting this week with a major new product that we're really excited about." Can't wait for tomorrow.

"Word on the mean streets of the Internet suggests that Apple CEO Steve Jobs may take the stage of San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center on Wednesday January 27. If you're looking for a little pre-show action to get you fired up, then look no further: Apple's announced its quarterly earnings results conference call for Monday January 25."

The call is tomorrow, starting at 2pm Pacific, and you can head over to the Apple site and listen in by going here. Interesting timing, couple days before their event. You can imagine the questions will eventually include the much rumored tablet.
