Apple Profits Quadruple As IPod Sales Soar

Apple Profits More Than Quadruple, Beating Estimates, As IPod, Laptop Sales Soar Over Holidays

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Apple Computer Inc.'s first-quarter earnings more than quadrupled, dramatically exceeding Wall Street expectations, based on strong holiday sales of laptop computers and its wildly popular iPod music players.

For the three months ended Dec. 25, Apple said it earned $295 million, or 70 cents per share. In the same period last year, the company earned $63 million, or 17 cents per share.

Revenue for the quarter was $3.49 billion, up nearly 75 percent from $2 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Analysts surveyed by Thomson First Call had projected earnings of 49 cents a share on revenue of $3.18 billion.

My favourite line thus far - G5 in a Powerbook is "the mother of all challenges"

Looks like it will be a while yet. That's probably why no one is buying them right now.

I didn't know Apple was still in business. That was a comment from a person I know 6 months ago believe it or not. I took him to my local Apple Store and he was amazed. An iPod and iMac G5 later, he is a very happy camper.

If they gave "comeback" awards in the computer industry, Apple would be the runaway winner. A terrific story indeed.

Extracting some tidbits:
  • 100% sequential change on European sales from 423 million to 847 million.
  • 99% sequential change on iMac units from 229k to 456k
  • PB units down 29% sequentially
  • Operating margin of 11.5% (403 million operating income on 3.49 billion in revenues)

Com'on don't exaggerate. There are only 999 lines in my above post.

Somethng Peter Openheimer said in the conference call is particuarlly good news I think. He said the margins on the Mac mini are "reasonablly the same as the eMac." I believe that means around 25%. There was some concern by analysts that it would be less.

Lovely!

And it's hilarious that some naysayer at Fool.com refutes his Mac-loving colleague's assertion that Apple's margins are higher than Dell's today. The Fool insists that operating margin is what matters, and Dell's 3.3% beats Apple's 2.2%.

I wonder how hard his jaw will hit the floor now that Apple has posted over 11%?

Go Apple!

Mac sales up--and up more than overall PC sales, which means... more market share even BEFORE the Mini!

And strong laptop sales? So much for the laptop line being dead with a G5...

But I thought Steve said the iMac G5 was the best Mac holiday seller.

I was taking operating margins. Profit margins are closer to around 8.5% for the quarter (295 million profit / 3.49 billion revenue)

For reference, it appears that Dell's profit margins have been steady at around 6.5% - 7%, based on this data:

Edit: You were talking aboout operating margins. Whatever. Data is still useful.

IMO, the marketshare has caught up to where it was 5 years ago. Since the original burst of the iMac, unit sales have stagnated below 1 million, sometimes even 800k (gasp) per quarter, and now they're finally back at that mark they should have been at all along. Sure, 26% increase looks good on paper and by no means is a bad thing, there is no reason Apple should have sold as few machines per quarter as they did the past few years. It will be interesting to see if the high unit sales sustain like this, and even grow. They really have no excuse for falling under 1 million units again. I hope the Mac mini works wonders on these numbers.

PowerMac and PowerBook sales are obviously terrible right now. The sagging pro line is overpriced and badly in need of faster processors. The annual update schedule of the PowerMac needs to be shortened. The PowerBook needs a G5.

Oh yeah. Apple, there is this one thing you could try doing to grow your platform a little. It's called advertising.
