“Apple will be announcing its fiscal 3Q16 results on July 26, 2016,” Adam Rogers reports for Market Realist. “Analysts expect the firm to post revenues of $42.03 billion for the quarter, which ended in June 2016, with a low estimate of $41.16 billion and a high estimate of $43.29 billion.”

“Apple’s EPS (earnings per share) are expected to be $1.39, with a high estimate of $1.52 and a low estimate of $1.23,” Rogers reports. “If Apple meets analyst revenue estimates of $42.03 billion, it would still mean a YoY (year-over-year) decline of 15.3% over 3Q15.”

“Apple beat its analyst estimate for EPS in 3Q15 by 2.2%, when the firm announced EPS of $1.85. Apple also beat the analyst EPS estimate in 4Q15 and 1Q16, by 4.3% and 1.5%, respectively,” Rogers reports. “The company, however, posted EPS 5% lower than the analyst estimate in 2Q16.”
