Apple will announce quarterly earnings for its third fiscal quarter of 2019 on July 30, with company CEO Tim Cook and CFO Luca Maestri expected to share details regarding specific segment performance in an investor conference call.




Apple's upcoming conference call was announced in an update to the Apple Events webpage on Monday.

As usual, Cook and Maestri are expected to provide an in-depth breakdown Apple's financials for the three-month period ending in June, as well as answer questions from prominent analysts. While the company no longer breaks out unit sales of iPhone, Mac and iPad, it does offer product line revenue, regional performance and other key financial metrics.

For the most recent March quarter, Apple's revenue ticked down 5% year-over-year to $58 billion on a continued iPhone slump. During the quarter, iPhone generated $31 billion, down from $37.6 billion during the same period in 2018.

Apple's services segment partially made up for the decrease in the company's bread-and-butter smartphone business with record revenues of $11.5 billion, up from $9.9 billion last year.

"Our March quarter results show the continued strength of our installed base of over 1.4 billion active devices, as we set an all-time record for Services, and the strong momentum of our Wearables, Home and Accessories category, which set a new March quarter record," Cook said at the time. "We delivered our strongest iPad growth in six years, and we are as excited as ever about our pipeline of innovative hardware, software and services."

Apple could provide insight into Apple News+, the new subscription news service that debuted this spring. Early reports claimed some 200,000 people signed up for a free trial of the service in its first 48 hours of availability, though long-term retention is as yet unknown.

Apple is forecasting revenue between $52.5 billion and $54.5 billion for the third quarter. Operating expenses are expected to fall between $8.7 billion and $8.8 billion.

AppleInsider will offer full coverage of the earnings call on Tuesday, July 30, starting at 2 p.m. Pacific, 5 p.m. Eastern.

    I don't expect anything crazy until TV+, Card and Arcade come along.

    When I first began buying AAPL some years ago, I remember being excited by each and every earnings. Is the stock going to go up? Is the stock going to drop?

    I would be excited when it increased, and disappointed when it dropped.

    Now, I don't even care too much anymore and I do not follow the earnings with the same intensity that I had before.

    I just hold the stock and I can take a very long nap. Regardless of how the earnings are, I wont be doing anything with my stock. I'm in it for the longterm.

    Ditto on all points.  When we were sinking down toward the low $80s in that ridiculous period where Ed Zabitsky was predicting $50 and everyone was in a panic, I was way over exposed in short puts.  It just got out of hand in my portfolio, little by little.  But every single one of those positions either expired worthless on their own or were able to be rolled out and down to give me time to see them expire worthless.  Whew!  If the stock had sunk below $70 I would likely have been wiped out.  In the end, except for a period of great stress, I emerged completely unscathed and the stock and call options I was holding restored my wealth and drove it much higher.

     These days I’m much more conservatively positioned, with just a couple hundred $155/160 call spreads expiring next January (already a double, with 14% additional upside).  When those pay out the $100k will be invested in more dividend payers and I’ll be fully on cruise control, making only small balancing adjustments to disperse some of my modestly yielding Apple shares into high yielding IBM, T and WFC shares, to grow my future dividend payouts.  As it stands, living a life of overseas travel, I’ll never spend it all.  No worries at all.

    AAPL is the only stock I own. One day soon we are going to wake up to a drop of 4000 points on the dow, and that will just be the start.

    My opinion. Hope I am wrong.

    So bury your money in a tin can in the back yard? Over the long haul the stock market has always outperformed other financial instruments. With traditional CDs and Treasury Notes you actually LOSE money because of inflation. Both of those pay significantly less than the inflation rate. Yes, they are safe, but you lose out over time, especially if you are saving for retirement. I guess it boils down to whether one is a capitalist or not.

    My opinion.
