Apple Reports Q4 2012 Earnings

Late last week, Apple Inc. (AAPL) reported its financial results third calendar quarter and fourth fiscal quarter of 2012. AAPL reported a net quarterly profit of $8.2 billion on $36.0 billion in revenue, which comes out to roughly $8.67 per diluted share. During the fourth fiscal quarter of 2011, Apple reported $28.27 billion in revenue with a net quarterly profit of $6.62 billion, coming out to about $7.05 per diluted share.

With each passing year, Apple has posted a higher quarterly revenue and profit, increasing its per share price by almost $1.67 per share since this time last year. With improvements in each quarter, Apple has set a record revenue for for fiscal 2012, reporting a total revenue of $156.5 billion with a net profit of $41.7 billion. Revenue and profit for fiscal 2012 comes in much higher than 2011, which brought in $108.2 billion in sales and $25.9 billion in profit.

Apple CEO Tim Cook mentioned last year that Asia, specifically China is a major growth opportunity for the company, which proved to be true in 2012. International sales accounted for over 60 percent of Apple’s revenue, which shows major growth from several years ago. During fiscal 2012, Apple sold 4.9 million Mac, an increase of 1 percent from over a year ago, 5.3 million iPods which declined 19 percent from a year ago. Although Apple is posting revenue increases each quarter, the company’s iPod sales have been declining for several quarters, with most sales coming from iPad and iPhone sales.

We’re very proud to end a fantastic fiscal year with record September quarter results,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re entering this holiday season with the best iPhone, iPad, Mac and iPod products ever, and we remain very confident in our new product pipeline.

Apple expects revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 to be yet another record with expected revenue of $52 billion and earnings per diluted share of $11.75. Apple has yet to include holiday sales for this year, which will likely be much higher than fiscal 2011, as Apple introduced an entirely new lineup of iPods, the new iPhone 5, as well as the iPad mini which is expected to be a major success this holiday.

    At the same time….. Samsung will report well over $220 Billion in Revenue, while also spending $42 Billion on CAPEX to build new fabrication plants and upgrading those, like Austin Texas Semiconductor. Even though they are intent on kicking Apple out at the end of the present parts contract and leased space in their FTZ and Shipping Port. Meaning that Apple will no longer get the huge tax and duty benefits from having those parts made in America! …….and they certainly won’t be getting them after being forced to move to more expensive TSMC…… either! ;-P

    Meanwhile back at SAMSUNG…. huge spread and ranch, customers are lining up to take Apple’s place in getting those same benefits for greater profits Apple has been enjoying since iPhone first launched. With Nvidia, Qualcomm, Broadcom and many others in joyous celebration over Apple lame move in an attempt to iSue Samsung out of business.

    How in the World could Apple be so arrogant and naive to think Steve wasn’t out of his ever self loving gourd (by cancer) in declaring Thermonuclear War on Samsung and demanding $30 per phone and $45 per tablet PC??? Now they only succeeded in pissing off a company that’s far bigger than they are. Who also formed and supplied the basis of iPhone’s success and has lived in a country the past 60 yrs prepared to be attacked by North Korea. History should have told them Samsung would mobilize to out sell and out spend them in every possible way. Now having DOUBLED and OVER DOUBLED their iPhone sales alone the last two Quarters!

    That’s the real reason for the reduced outlook on the Q4 Annual 2012 outlook! …..expect that to only get worse. With fail supply of Screens for iPad Mini and their Terry Gou’s Owned “Chinese Animals” unable to make enough PERFECT back covers out of Apple’s CHEAP Semi impure Aluminum anodized back cases! ;-P …..Aluminum Oxide has a nasty habit of not liking to stick to impure inferior die cast aluminum!!!
