Services vs Product

Sales by Segment and Region

Forward Guidance: Apple did not give forward guidance for next quarter but did provide some “directional Insights.”

Dividend: Apple also declared a quarterly dividend of $0.22 per share — unchanged from its previous quarterly dividend.

Some of headlines from the conference call, which you can listen to here:

  • 66% of Apple Watch buyers this past quarter were first time buyers
  • Apple's $AAPL retail locations had their highest total revenue ever last quarter
  • There are currently 1.8 Billion active Apple $AAPL devices
  • When asked about the Metaverse Tim Cook said the company has a lot of AR apps already on the App store adding "We see a lot of potential for this space and are investing accordingly"

My favorite quote from the earnings call was when Tim Cook said:

"We have a different model, We try to announce things when they're ready or close to ready and try to maintain an element of surprise"

Tesla Earnings

Tesla is too big to not include in this. They reported Q4 earnings this Wednesday, Jan. 26, after the markets closed, including headline numbers like:

  • EPS of $2.54 — beating expectations of $2.11 
  • Rev of $17.7B (+65.4% YoY) — beating expectations of $16.1B 
  • Operating Cash flow of $2.8B

Tesla also announced it has now reached cumulative profitability since inception.

The two biggest headlines I got from the conference call:

  1. Tesla expects its growth to be "comfortably" over 50% in 2022
  2. Elon Musk said he thinks Tesla's humanoid robot business has the potential to be more significant over time than its car business

All-in-all, Q4 wraps up another strong year of growth for Tesla, with revenue up 68.8% YoY.
