Apple Wall Street

Contrary to expectations and the recent trend that has seen the value of AAPL shares fall, Apple today presented the financial results of the second quarter of 2013: they are excellent and show that the company is still solid and able to produce value, despite the doubts recently raised by the collapse in the value of the shares.

therefore, after the long wait and after the harsh omens on the defeat of the Cupertino company, finally the financial resultsof the second quarter of the company led by Tim Cook.

As we have said, the results seem to partly offset the aspects related to the company's recession, but let's see the numbers in detail.

Tim Cook, Apple's current CEO, personally presented the results of this second quarter of 2013. Here is what emerges:

  • Apple generated quarterly revenue of $ 43.6 billion
  • quarterly net profit of $ 9.5 billion

Last year, just to offer some other numbers, Apple had a turnover of $ 39.2 billion and a net profit of $ 11.6 billion. The gross margin was 37.5% compared to 47.4% in the quarter than a year ago. International sales accounted for 66 percent of quarterly revenue.

But let's get to the sales details.

iPhonesold: 37.4 million (+6.5%) –iPadsold: 19.5 million (+65%) –Macsold: 4 million (+0%) –iPodsold: 5.6 million (-27%)

Here is a summary chart.

As you can see, despite the positive results compared to last year, sales of Apple products have dropped significantly compared to previous months.

This is Cook's comment for the results achieved by the company:

We are pleased to see the second quarter 2013 revenues positively thanks to the continuous and strong sales performance of the iPhone and iPad. Our teams are working on some amazing new hardware, software and services components and we are very excited about the products in our pipeline.

Before concluding, some other additional data.

The company saw a $ 12.5 billion cash flow that raises its treasury in reserves to $ 145 billion. The contribution margin drops from 47.4% to 37.5%, which could lead to problems with the stock's stock exchange. 66% of the company's turnover comes from abroad. The turnover recorded in the Apple Stores also grew: 4.3 billion, an increase of 19% compared to last year.

For the next fiscal quarter, the company expects revenues of between $ 33.5 billion and $ 35.5 billion.

But the news from Apple's conference isn't all here.

Indeed, Cook claimed thatby 2015, the company will return something like $ 100 billion to shareholderswhich translates into a $ 55 billion increase over the previously approved program. The first increase in dividends will arrive immediately as of May 16 of this year, where every single share will receive $ 3.05 in dividends, an increase of 15% over what happened previously. This is a skillful move by Cook to keep shareholders good, which in recent times were becoming particularly annoying.In this way we will meet those who requested to get hold of the company's reserves.

With $ 145 billion in reserves growing steadily quarter after quarter, the company will have no fear of running out of cash. This will ensure growth in value for the next two years.

At this point we can only wait for the launch of the new Apple products to see if the company will be able to return to the crest of the wave with its innovative and revolutionary products that have made it unique in recent years. We will see what news will be introduced by the company with the launch of the new iPhone and iPad and, above all, if Apple will launch an inexpensive iPhone and its smartwatch.
