appleearnings12

Apple just posted one of their most successful financial quarters ever. A bunch of records were broken for iPad sales, iPhone sales, net revenue, and net profit.

Sorting through the pile of information and numbers Tim Cook and Peter Oppenheimer just gave us can make your head spin, so we’ve broken it down for you. Here are the most important numbers you need to know from today’s earnings call:

The Positives

  • $54.5 billion in net revenue and $13.1 billion in profit were posted (new records)
  • Apple sold 10 iOS devices *per second* in the quarter
  • 47 million iPhones were sold versus 37 million in year ago quarter (new record)
  • 22.9 million iPads were sold versus 15.4 million a year ago (new record)
  • 500 million iOS devices have been sold to date
  • Apple’s average weekly revenue jumped up to $4.2 billion from $3.3 billion.
  • iPhone sales doubled in China
  • Over 2 billion iMessages get sent every day
  • iTunes generated  $2.1 billion in revenue.
  • App Store sold two billion apps in December alone
  • The App Store is now available in 155 countries
  • $7 billion paid to app developers last quarter
  • iPod touch accounts for more than 50% of all iPods sold.
  • 2 million Apple TVs sold last quarter, up over 60% year over year
  • $4 billion in cash was returned to shareholders
  • Apple now has $137.1 billion in cash

The Negatives

  • 312,000 thousand Macs were sold every week, versus 371,0000 per week last year (down 16%)
  • 12.7 million iPods were sold, versus 15.4 million a year ago.
  • Apple’s profit gain was statistically insignificant (0.1%) even as revenue rose 17.6%.

    PLEASE TIM – GET YOUR HEAD OUTTA YOUR AS* !!!

    The Market for technology products is fickle, flighty, transparent, changes on a nano-turn, has mood swings that NO ONE can predict or explain, yet Tim Cook, as smart as he is, keeps trying to chop it up into manageable little, behaviorally consistent nuggets he can spin up a can of blinking lights, buttons and tightly wound antenna to keep them ‘stable’…… “BULLSHIT”!!!

    The last 6 or 7 weeks of press, speculation, lies, manna, arguments, rights and wrongs, strong and weak statements, and a lot of what ever it takes to settle the noise down, has managed to crash the value of Apple down by 40 %….. THAT’ s OVER $ 200 BILLION DOLLARS because people like to scream at each other and calm heads can’t scream as loud as morons. AND, because the morons that have been screaming for the last 6 or 7 weeks like lunatics straight out of the asylum, got EXACTLY WHAT THEY THOUGHT TODAY… A CRAPPY APPLE EARNINGS REPORT – FROM A HOLIDAY PERIOD !! W T F !!!

    I don’t care if it was the law of big numbers (they got reduced by $ 200 BILLION over the last few weeks), I don’t care if it’s Klowns making up bad FUD halfway around the world that was a LIE the instant it hit a keyboard. It resulted in a BAD EARNINGS REPORT FROM APPLE TODAY and that’s NOT ACCEPTABLE. ESPECIALLY IN A STONG HOLIDAY QUARTER where they should have had a performance that just left global pundits stunned and speechless …. Instead, Apple got laughed off the stage and the stock went down ANOTHER $ 60 BILLION DOLLARS !!!

    Unforgivable.

    Apples numbers look great to me! Don;t know what all the naysayers were fussing about. Maybe I am missing something.

    The revenues are great, but it’s the Net Profits that are off. I think the transition away from Samsung is just being a little difficult right now. If they have their component supply falling into place, I think this quarter they’ll have some better numbers since iMac sales were off, but it’s a supply issue, and the iPad minis were off because of a supply issue, but hopefully those issues will get resolved.

    It’s great to have lots of demand, but one has to ship the product, etc.

    Either way, look at it this way. The lower the stock goes means it’s a SCREAMING BUY. If you already own shares at a higher price, buy more at a lower price and dollar cost average.

    This, my friends, is a prime example of someone who doesn’t understand how business works.
