Even Apple Can't Believe Apple's Q4 Results

Subsequent Apple's freshest news, people were waiting for the much-hyped iPhone X that was promoted as the eventuality of super smartphones.

Q4 iPhone unit sales: 46 million expected by a FactSet consensus estimate.

IPhone sales were once again top of mind when Apple released the earnings report for its fiscal fourth quarter Thursday, and the company didn't disappoint investors: Apple sold 46.7 million iPhones during its most recent quarter, which is 1.2 million more than during the same time previous year. The company gave investors a guidance $84 billion to $87 billion in revenue for the current quarter.

The iPhone X officially goes on sale tomorrow, and die-hard fans are already lining up at Apple Stores around the country.

Wall Street was looking for earnings of $1.87 a share on revenue of $46.9 billion. And the report barely raises the curtain on sales of the iPhone 8 series. Surprisingly, that's not the fastest-growing category for Apple - that would be the "other products" category that includes hardware like the Apple Watch, AirPods and Apple TV. The Company posted quarterly revenue of $52.6 billion, an increase of 12 percent from the year-ago quarter, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $2.07, up 24 percent.

With the exception of pre-orders, most major telcos will not be selling the iPhone X in outer suburban or regional outlets. They are expecting the company to sell 242 million iPhones in the fiscal year ending in September 2018 - the most in the product's history.

Zhang and his team compared Apple's production ramp schedule to the five to six week wait time for an iPhone X to create a range for the number of reservations the firm could have processed within 72-hours for its flagship iPhone.

Apple fiscal 4th quarter sales results are in with a return to growth in the smartphone, tablet, and notebook markets. If you share that vision, there's something you need to know about Apple: it's rarely first to adopt new technology, but when it eventually introduces it, it's flawless.
