Apple beats but comes up light on iPhone sales and services

.....Apple reported fiscal fourth-quarter earnings on Thursday that beat Wall Street expectations on revenue and earnings per share.

However, Apple came up short versus revenue expectations in core product categories including the company's iPhone business and services.

Apple shares rose over 1% in extended trading.

Here is how Apple did versus Refinitiv consensus estimates:

EPS $1.29 vs. $1.27 est.
Revenue. $90.15 billion vs. $88.90 billion estimated, up 8.1% year-over-year
iPhone revenue: $42.63 billion vs. $43.21 billion estimated, up 9.67% year-over-year
Mac revenue: $11.51 billion vs. $9.36 billion estimated, up 25.39% year-over-year
iPad revenue: $7.17 billion vs. $7.94 billion estimated, down 13.06% year-over-year
Other Products revenue: $9.65 billion vs. $9.17 billion estimated, up 9.85% year-over-year
Services revenue: $19.19 billion vs. $20.10 billion estimated, up 4.98% year-over-year
Gross margin: 42.3% vs. 42.1% estimated

Apple did not provide official guidance for its first fiscal quarter, which ends in December and contains Apple's biggest sales season of the year. It hasn't provided guidance since 2020, citing uncertainty.

However, Apple CFO Luca Maestri gave investors a few data points that caused the stock to dip momentarily during the company's earnings call.

He said that total year-over-year revenue would grow in December less than the 8.1% during the September quarter. He added that Mac sales would actually decline in the December quarter on an annual basis. He also said that services would grow year-over-year during the quarter, but would be hurt by the macroeconomic environment.

"We're not providing revenue guidance, but we are sharing some directional insight," Maestri said.

Apple increased revenue by 8% during the quarter, and Apple CEO Tim Cook told CNBC that it would've grown "double-digits" if not for the strong dollar. Total sales in Apple's fiscal 2022 were up 8% to $394.3 billion.

"The foreign exchange headwinds were over 600 basis points for the quarter," Cook told CNBC's Steve Kovach. "So it was significant. We would have grown in double digits without the foreign exchange headwinds."

Cook told CNBC that Apple had slowed the pace of its hiring. Other tech companies are looking to make cuts ahead of a possible recession and as interest rates rise.

"We are hiring deliberately. And so we've slowed the pace of hiring," Cook said.

Although Apple's iPhone business increased sales by over 9% on an annual basis, it came up short versus analyst expectations. Apple's September quarter had 8 days of iPhone 14 sales, and analysts are closely looking for details about if Apple customers are trading up for more expensive models or if the new devices are poised to sustain higher sales through Apple's fiscal 2023......

In contrast to Meta, Google, and Microsoft, Apple reported record revenue and profit for the 4th quarter.



Beleaguered!

Wow. Some people are pretty specific in what they want from a company.

Seems to me the only disappointment was the iPad - and that’s because the M-series Macs are eating into iPad sales because they have all-day battery life as a Mac.

As usual, Apple was up for the week preceding the earnings announcement, than dived immediately after. Nothing to see here.



It is what it is.

The after hours was pretty wild especially just after the results were released when it dropped to $137.37, and then bounced around and was finally up a little near the end.

I always like how the "experts" guess on a number and then slam the company when it doesn't meet or exceed their guess.

Up $11.67 (~8%) today at this point.

Not totally beleaguered, I guess.
