    Apple today announced financial results for the first fiscal quarter of 2016, which corresponds to the fourth calendar quarter of 2015. For the quarter, Apple posted revenue of $75.9 billion and net quarterly profit of $18.4 billion, or $3.28 per diluted share, compared to revenue of $74.6 billion and net quarterly profit of $18 billion, or $3.06 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Both revenue and earnings were company records.

    Gross margin for the quarter was 40.1 percent compared to 39.9 percent in the year-ago quarter, with international sales accounting for 66 percent of revenue. Apple also declared an upcoming dividend payment of $0.52 per share, payable on February 11 to shareholders of record as of February 8. The company currently holds $215.7 billion in cash and marketable securities, partially offset by $53.2 billion in long-term debt.

    Apple sold a record 74.8 million iPhones during the quarter, up slightly from 74.5 million a year earlier, while Mac sales were down slightly to 5.3 million units sold from 5.5 million units in the year-ago quarter. iPad sales were also down once again, falling to 16.1 million from 21.4 million despite the introduction of the iPad Pro during the quarter.
    Apple's guidance for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 includes expected revenue of $50-53 billion and gross margin between 39 and 39.5 percent. Revenue guidance is slightly below analyst expectations.

    In supplemental materials, Apple explains that currency headwinds have cost the company 15 percent in earnings over the past 18 months. Using "constant currency" measures, Apple's revenue for the holiday quarter would have been $80.8 billion for an 8 percent increase year-over-year.

    Astonishing performance. Gross margins increased? Wow. And how about that dividend.

    Now watch the haters dig for that needle in the haystack to poke the company with.

    The article has revenue and profits reversed.

    From 74.5 million to 75.8 million is less than a 0.5% increase -- essentially zero growth. Not updating the phone-sized iPhones for 2.5 years was huge mistake. Not everyone wants a phablet-sized iPhone. I predict that iPhone sales will return to growth when Apple introduce an up-to-date 4" iPhone.

    Mac sales seems to be proportionally down compared to the trends of previous years.

    But but but... I thought iPhone sales were supposed to be DOWN and that part of their business was slowing...

    Lol, I'm loving this.

    Sigh, that is it. Apple is doomed. Clearly no one buys iPhones anymore. :(

    $6.1B monthly profit is poor by any standard. :)

    Everyone was predicting a down quarter. Even the down quarters at AAPL are still slightly up.

    Can someone educate me a bit... is the iPhone "next" program that's on every carrier and Apple is selling the iPhone this way as well going to be a giant growth generator for Apple? I would normally buy an iPhone every 2 years and now I'm getting one every year. Will we see the benefits next year and beyond?

    And the iPad pro didn't make a big impact, but that was not expected anyway.

    Considering there hasn't been a meaningful update to any of the Macs in eons, a .2% dip doesn't seem too bad.

    Also, the Apple watch didn't even warrant a callout in their revenue pie.

    While iPhone sales aren't "down" (and I'm extremely happy about that), it's not "77 Million" (and I know that shareholders (and ESPECIALLY Android fanboys) are going to end up saying Apple's still doomed.)

    Also, the fact that everything else is either still down or they're "so-so" does worry me a little.

    Waiting for the real iPhone sales breakdown as are Apples main investors. Those iPad sales are very very poor, nearly a quarter down!! Shares will take a hit for that.

    I think the more one trick pony company Apple becomes, the harder the share price will fall once those one trick sales fall.

    With the unit number for iPhones being so close to last year's 1Q number, I'm really curious to hear what they say about channel inventory for that product. Did they push a few extra units into the channel to make sure they had YoY growth?

    At any rate, as a long-term investor I'm pretty happy with these results. This was the first quarter in a long time that I was a little nervous about. There are so many headwinds for Apple, there was a possibility I thought that this report would disappoint (me). I wasn't expecting it to, but like I said I was a little nervous.

    A $5 billion currency effect? Wow!

    Apple's profit margin on iPhones is so ridiculously high, I wonder what would happen if they decided to slash their prices by $200-$300? I bet they would not lose any revenue, as they would just sell greater quantity.

    Are your revenue and profit numbers switched?

    For the quarter, Apple posted revenue of $18.4 billion and net quarterly profit of $75.9 billion, or $3.28 per diluted share, compared to revenue of $74.6 billion and net quarterly profit of $18 billion, or $3.06 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Both revenue and earnings were company records.
