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.

Not Such a Bad Economy for Apple

On Wednesday, January 14, the day Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced he would be taking a 6-month medical leave of absence, Apple shares closed at $85.33. From the moment that news hit the tape, shares began to slide, and by January 20, Apple had dipped to $78.20, with investors starting to worry that a kind of China Syndrome was happening to the company.A complete meltdown, and no recovery. But something bordering on miraculous has occurred since then: a rally, and a big one, in Apple shares. And it was ignited by the most unlikely of sources: financial fundamentals.

This is a good example of how the unknown is sometimes too much for investors to take, and how quickly they can react negatively to bad news prior to getting the facts. Once the reports were in on the financial stability of the company, the stock price jumped above $100 US for the first time this year. As of closing of the markets on Friday the stock had settled at $99.72 US rewarding the strong sales numbers Apple posted. It sure doesn't hurt having $28 billion US in the bank either!

Dell Shares Can't Reach Bottom Fast Enough

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Talk" @ 01:00 PM

"Shares of computer maker Dell Inc. retreated Thursday after a JPMorgan analyst downgraded the stock, citing the company's high exposure to a withering PC market. Unlike rivals Apple Inc. with smart phones, and Hewlett-Packard Co. with printers, Round Rock, Texas-based Dell hasn't significantly diversified into other markets. That is likely to "make for a bumpy ride given our view on PCs," JP Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz told investors in a note, downgrading Dell to "Underweight" from "Neutral.""

Remember when Michael Dell said the quote I pasted over Steve Jobs' head? I sure do. It was in 1997, and was during one of the darkest phases of Apple's history. The company was floundering after utterly incompetent leadership left the company in shambles, and Apple had just bought out a small hardware company with some innovative ideas called NeXT. That company was headed by none other than Steve Jobs, who returned to Apple's top seat and turned the company from an also-ran joke into a compulsive innovator.

Today, no one is talking about Apple selling the company and returning money to shareholders in Cupertino. In Round Rock, however, I bet they're wondering if Michael Dell will put some of that bravado into the pockets of his shareholders.
