Apple's earnings blow the predictions away!

I’m a Mac man …..

I’ve been one for about 16 years…..starting off with the Apple ‘Pizza box ‘ LC II computer…..

This Blog come to you from a iMac….

A big….big …jump from one to the other….although I’ve had a few other Macs along the way…..

So It makes me smile to see that Apple….. after all the death announcements ten years ago…..is doing real damn good!


Apple turned in a quarter that blew past analyst forecasts as sales of iPods, iPhones and Macs each exceeded expectations.

The company’s shares were up more than 5 percent in extended trading. Get after-hour quotes for Apple here.

Apple said it earned $3.07 billion, or $3.33 a share, in its fiscal second quarter, up from $1.33 a share last year.

Sales for the most recent period rose to $13.5 billion, up from $8.163 billion last year.

The results blew past forecasts. Wall Street analysts who follow Apple expected on average that the company would earn $2.45 a share on revenue of $12.036 billion, according to numbers compiled by Thomson Reuters.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Analyst Shaw Wu of Kaufman Brothers. “They totally crushed the quarter. It seems really strong across the board. The iPhone numbers nearly match the Christmas sales numbers. You have to ask whether Christmas has come again for Apple in March.”

  1. Seriously though, Apple is on fire…And they are about to jump off even higher when they start selling the iPhone on the Verizon Network, and when the 4g iPhone comes out…The iPad is just too big to be a serious product, i think it is a novelty, but the iPhone is definitely the truth.

  3. Apple is such a great story!
    I love my old PowerBook G4 12″ on the seventh year now!

    And the iPad – it will change our habits and create a whole new market. Reading the newspaper while cooking dinner, watching a movie on the bus, listening to radio in the bathroom. And books in the armchair. Size and weight makes it a new form of device.

    And just wait out for the second edition…
