Apple Records Record Revenue in Q4 2010

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 07:30 AM

"Apple reported Monday that it brought in a record $20.3 billion in revenue during the September quarter, the company's fiscal fourth quarter, and a record $4.34 billion in profit. That's up 67% year-over-year in revenue and up 73% year-over-year in earnings."

This didn't stop the stock from dropping about 5.6% yesterday to final price of $318.00 USD per share, but the stock had quite the run leading up to the financial conference call yesterday. Among the highlights yesterday besides the revenue of course, were that they sold a record 3.89 million Macs (up 27% from previous year), 14.1 million iPhones (up 91% from previous year) and 4.19 million iPads. The only downer was the sales of 9.05 million iPods (down 11% from last year). The biggest highlight for some was the fact that Steve Jobs made an appearance in the call, saying "we have a few surprises left for the remainder of this calendar year." I can't wait until tomorrow can you?

"Apple's earnings conference calls are fast becoming routine affairs. Record breaking earnings, billions in profits, and an astounding number of Mac/iPhone/iPod sales. Indeed, we've almost come to expect Apple to set all-time highs in every financial metric quarter after quarter."

The fourth quarter ended on September 30th, so this should be an eventful conference call. You can tune in to the Apple Investor page and listen in at 2pm Pacific, 5pm Eastern.

Q4 Sales Figures

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 11:00 AM

"Apple took advantage of a rebounding PC market this past holiday shopping season, with the Mac maker's U.S. sales rising 31 percent year-over-year to 1.5 million units. That was good enough to keep its share of the domestic pie above 7 percent, despite an influx of budget netbook PCs that flooded the market."

Check out the Toshiba growth rate, a whopping 71.5%! HP isn't bad with 45.1% and Apple in at 3rd on the growth rate with 31.0%. Even with the growth their market share puts them in 5th place overall. The article is a good read for background on how the industry as a whole performed.
