Apple to Announce 1Q 2013 Earnings on January 23




Apple today updated its investor relations page to note that it will announce its earnings for the first fiscal quarter (fourth calendar quarter) of 2013 on Wednesday, January 23. The earnings release typically occurs just after 4:30 PM Eastern Time following the close of regular stock trading, and the conference call is scheduled to follow at 5:00 PM Eastern / 2:00 PM Pacific.

MacRumors will provide running coverage of the earnings release and conference call.

The release will provide a look into the strength of iPhone 5 and iPad mini sales across their first quarter of widespread availability. Apple reported strong results three months ago with iPhone and iPad sales both up significantly year over year.

The company provided guidance for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 for revenue of $52 billion and earnings per diluted share of $11.75. If it meets that guidance, it would count as the strongest quarter for Apple in history.

Nopes. It's "Announcementception."

I think it will be a very interesting watch, this quarter. Like you'll get to read totally "gone bonkers" reports on how the lawsuit affected their earnings which would definitely sound like it makes sense.

Here is my prediction, $57b revenue EPS of $14.22. A blow-out quarter by apple in my book, but analysts will probably demand more and be slightly disappointed.

ItŽs important to remember there is one less week of earnings in this quarter, and that they had an unprecedented new line-up of products before the holiday season which will hurt profit-margins, but will improve over the course of 2013.

Mac sales will be very disappointing with maybe as few as 4million sold, primarily due to no availability.

Expect the share price to climb up to $630 prior to the conference call, and maybe $650 the following day.

Apple is sure to have had a blow out holiday quarter with the refreshed products lines. Preliminary numbers from Gartner are encouraging, showing a 5.4% US growth in a declining PC segment, even though IDC is claiming a slight decline (less than the overall market decline).

Of course, we're coming off the iPhone 5 launch quarter, so numbers there will be strong, no matter what people think.

I think there won't be major surprises as far as earnings go for Q1 '13 (the holiday quarter Oct-Dec for Apple). What will be interesting in this call is what they see moving forward for Q213, whether their cut back on parts order is true and if it is, if the motivitation is really due to sagging demand (I doubt it) or really just a precaution to not repeat the earning's miss of Q312 due to channel inventory not being depleted from Q212.

Like people who post on MacRumors have $50,000.00 laying around to invest in 100 shares of AAPL, typically the minimum number of shares required for a transaction.

Thought IŽd post my 2013 estimate prior to Q1 ER. Currently the share price is at $502USD. Here are my estimates:

Revenue: 202B.
Profit: 90.6B
Cash: $174B
EPS: 60
Share price will probably be around $780USD by the end of the year. Up a bit from todays $502 :-)

Total IOS devices sold 2013:
313.6mill

iPhones:
2013: 187million 50% increase from 2012 125million up 73% from 72mil 2011
iPad:
2013: 98.6million 70% increase from 2012 58million up 80% from 32 2011
iPod:
2013: 28million -20% decrease from 2012: 35mil down 17% from 42mil 2011

Wow.. One step at a time.. how do you get to $60 earning for fiscal 2013? management projection for F1Q13 in F4Q12 earning call is 11.75 and it is the best earning quarter in the year...With Tim Cook's fast launch for both Iphone 5 and Ipad (100 countries in 4Q12), F3Q13 (2Q13) sales will drop like a rock. I don't sell a way to get to $60 a share with things that we know today. I hope you didn't bet your house on this set of prediction...

You are partially correct. Stocks are up for many reasons.
1. Fiscal Cliff
2. Those who sold stocks to beat capital gains going from 15% to 20%, are now buying back in.

Specific to Apple:
3. Apple was at a recent low and people are buying in.
4. Apple is selling iPhones and iPad minis like hotcakes. It looks like they will have a blowout quarter
