At Apple’s annual shareholder meeting next year it faces shareholders who want the company to define how it handles certain demands.
AAPL is Apple’s stock ticker on the NASDAQ exchange. AAPL went public on December 12, 1980 and has used AAPL ever since. Their IPO generated over $100 million, which was more than any IPO since 1967 when Ford Motor Company went public. Three hundred AAPL millionaires were created on that day.
Since then, there have been many more.
John Martellaro and Bryan Chaffin join host Kelly Guimont to discuss to discuss what we heard and think we heard on Apple’s earnings call.
Apple on Wednesday turned in a record September quarter—the company’s fiscal 4th quarter—with revenues of US$64 billion. The company also reported earnings per share of $3.03, crushing Wall Street consensus estimates of $2.68 EPS. [Updated with more details.]
Apple investor Cowen posted a note saying they expect Apple to have a good holiday season this year and earn US$90 billion.
Wall Street analysts believe that as many as 200 million users could upgrade to iPhone 11, some of them in China despite the trade war.
Apple has posted plenty of “Shot on iPhone”: videos, but four new ASMR videos mark the first time where the content is more about the experience than it is about the device that made it. Bryan Chaffin is joined by guest-host Charlotte Henry to discuss it. They also talk about Samsun’s lame decision to pull an old ad from its YouTube channel that mocked an Apple move that Samsung is following today. So lame. They also look at Apple’s gargantuan effort to buy $24 billion of its own stock in just the June quarter.
Apple reported on Tuesday June quarter revenues of $53.8 billion, a record June quarter that the company pointed out was an increase of 1 percent from the year-ago quarter. Apple posted earnings per diluted share of $2.18.
Some analysts are projecting Apple to turn in year-over-year declines in sales and revenues for the September quarter—here’s how it breaks down.
The news helped send Apple’s stock higher, with $AAPL trading at $210.075 per share in afternoon session, a gain of $2.335 (+1.12%), on moderate volume.
This level of analysis is to me the flip side of Apple fanboy ebullience, no more than faith-based commentary with little reason or evidence to back it.
Despite the trade war between China and the United States, Apple stocks have jumped as much as 3.3% in the past three weeks.
The latest report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) shows the U.S. iPhone installed base is slowing down.
Bryan Chaffin is joined by guest cohost Ken Ray for a spirited look into Apple’s earnings report. The two also weigh the real meaning behind Apple’s outward emphasis on services and what that means for Apple hardware. They cap the show with a rant about AT&T’s fake 5G. Spoiler: AT&T’s claims of a “5G” network are fake.
Analysts latched on to better-than-expected guidance for the June quarter and comments from Apple that its trade-in program have boosted iPhone sales, sending the stock higher in after hours trading.
Apple’s iPhone revenue for Q2 went down year-over-year. China was a major problem. But Apple took aggressive action that benefitted customers. Here’s what happened.
Apple’s revenue and earnings were down year over year, so the company focused on record Services revenue and an increase in its quarterly dividend.
Apple’s iPhone China sales are down 30% in Q1 2019. Huawei continues to dominate, capturing 34% of China’s smartphone market.
Apple’s performance in China is concerning, given that the worst quarter for iPhone shipments is usually Q2 or Q3, not Q1 when new devices are still fresh. Apple has acted to cut iPhone retail prices, which has largely relieved the pressure from its channel partners.
I wonder how much of iPhone sales in China were impacted by Chinese companies encouraging employees to boycott Apple in favor of Huawei.
Netflix released its quarterly letter to shareholders saying that it’s excited to have competitors like Apple and Disney.
Bryan Chaffin & John Martellaro join host Kelly Guimont to discuss arguments about cord cutting and Apple’s policy (not political) decisions.
