    Default Apple 3Q Earnings Obliterate Estimates


    Apple may have even surprised Apple with the company's reported 3rd quarter revenue announced Tuesday after the close of trading on Wall Street. Blowing consensus estimates out of the water, Apple beat the street (which had forecast 3Q earnings of $14.75 billion) by posting earnings totaling $15.74 billion.

    From CNBC:
    Apple easily topped analysts' expectations in its fiscal third quarter and gave a better-than-expected sales forecast, pushing the company's stock higher in extended trading Tuesday.
    Even Apple's guidance is worth noting with Q4 Revenue guidance at $18 billion vs. $17.03 Street consensus. Q4 EPS guidance is $3.44 vs. $3.82 Street consensus. Apple revealed today, as expected, stellar sales across its vast iDevice product line. During the quarter that ended June 30th, Apple shipped 3.27 million iPads, 3.47 million Macs, and 9.4 million iPods. Q3 iPhone shipments, however, came in at 8.4 million - slightly below consensus estimates.

    With regard to the controversy and customer fallout in the wake of "Antennagate," Apple largely seems unaffected by the recent wave of negative press and consumer criticisms. Looking ahead to the next quarter, Apple is presently forecasting $18 billion in revenue and $3.44 EPS. That's a pretty bold and confident prediction, especially coming from a company that is known for presenting very, very tentative if not absurdly conservative estimates in order to blast them to bits when the cold hard data finally rolls in.

    Shares of Apple exploded 4% in after-hours trading as soon as Cupertino announced the long-awaited 3Q earnings.

    Something so wrong about a company making that much money, how greedy can you be? As a business owner I understand about making a buck, but come on............This seems just sinful to me.

    Why are you blaming them? Blame the people (us) for handing over our money so easily to them.

    It's called capitalism and there isn't a damned thing wrong with it.

    WTF?

    I would say you're making too much money, so you should reduce your prices, and live off $200 a week.

    Would you? Like hell you would.

    That 1.5 billion dollars it would cost for a iPhone 4 recall doesn't sound so extreme now eh?

    Looks like I have pushed a few buttons here, lmao.
    As I stated so you can understand, I understand about making a profit, I don't do what I do for free or for the exercise.
