Speedy.

How come they are webcasting this and not the keynote? Less demand = Less bandwidth costs?
I think this is audio only whereas the Keynote is video and audio. Not sure if that makes a difference but those are some of the differences.

Traditionally Apple Stock takes a dive after the earnings announcement. It had a significant correction in the last two days already. The analysts are already trying to build the stock up with glossy assessments of the new products. They were caught flat-footed after the iPod success. The stock has gone up over 300% in the last 12 months and it is still over bought and over priced. I hope it drops at least 5%, but there is a good chance this time around it will go up about 5%.

should be interesting

Should be very fulfilling to hear these results, no doubt that they cleaned up with the ipod. It's so nice that apple is doing so well, almost makes me want to write an article about how they are going to go bankrupt any day now. I haven't seen one of those stupid things in a while!

Here's a press release I received

Apple Reports First Quarter Results


PR Newswire 4:30 pm January 12, 2005

Apple(R) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2005 first quarter ended December 25, 2004. For the quarter, the Company posted a net profit of $295 million, or $.70 per diluted share. These results compare to a net profit of $63 million, or $.17 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Revenue for the quarter was $3.49 billion, up 74 percent from the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 28.5 percent, up from 26.7 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 41 percent of the quarter's revenue.

Apple shipped 1,046,000 Macintosh(R) units and 4,580,000 iPods during the quarter, representing a 26 percent increase in CPU units and a 525 percent increase in iPods over the year-ago quarter.

"We are thrilled to report the highest quarterly revenue and net income in Apple's history," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "We've sold over 10 million iPods to date and are kicking off the new year with a slate of innovative new products including iPod shuffle, Mac mini and iLife '05."

"We're pleased to report 74 percent revenue growth, 26 percent Mac unit growth and 525 percent iPod unit growth," said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple's CFO. "Looking ahead to the second quarter of fiscal 2005, we expect revenue of about $2.9 billion and earnings per diluted share of about $.40."

Apple will provide live streaming of its Q1 2005 financial results conference call utilizing QuickTime(TM), Apple's standards-based technology for live and on-demand audio and video streaming. The live webcast will begin at 2:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday, January 12, 2005 at http://www.apple.com/quicktime/qtv/earningsq105/ and will also be available for replay.

Seth Jayson at Motley Fool just published one today. Usual Apple is losing it, Apple investors are insane, Apple stock is priced insanely, you'd be crazy to own this stock. All I have to say, nice timing Seth.

Good Jobs

I guess Steve doesn't round up for those disappointed that the iPods number wasn't 4.6 million units.

Also it looks like the analysts who said that Mac units were increasing were correct as opposed to the naysayers.

Glad I own some shares.

Say 'nay' again, I dare you. :p

Well, Apple tried to tell us it was gonna be big, now we have the numbers to believe the hype. On to the Mac mini and shufflePod, wonder how well those are going to perform. .. :confused:
