Where will you be on Tuesday, April 24, 2012? If you’re an investor in Apple or otherwise invested in the company’s future, you’ll probably be tuning into the next conference call to discuss the company’s second-quarter earnings call.
AT&T may not have had the insane second quarter that partner Apple did, they’re still rockin’ the iPhone like a hurricane, with 3.6 million of the handsets activated over the last three months and nearly a quarter of those were new customers.
In a scheduled release of third quarter figures today, Apple reported record quarterly revenue and huge sales numbers. “We’re thrilled to deliver our best quarter ever, with revenue up 82 percent and profits up 125 percent,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.
It's beginning to look like nothing can stop the rise of Apple's star this year. Despite, multiple lawsuits, the iPhone 4's antenna woes, leaked product snafus and the bad press surrounding a few of their suppliers, the company's stock value shot up from $390 to $429 a share after yesterday's revelation of the Cupertino-based company's latest financial report.
It’s almost hard to remember a time when Apple wasn’t making money hand over fist, especially with multiple quarters in a row boasted as their biggest yet. Cupertino didn’t disappoint Wall Street once again, racking up fiscal fourth quarter revenue of $20.34 billion and a net quarterly profit of $4.31 billion.
