Apple to webcast Q1 08 quarterly results conference call on January 22

Apple plans to host their usual quarterly webcast discussing first quarter (Q1 08) financial results on January 22, 2008 at 2pm PST / 5pm EST.

On October 22, with the release of stellar Q4 07 results (revenue of $6.22 billion, net profit of $904 million, $1.01 per diluted share), Apple guided analysts to expect revenue of about $9.2 billion and earnings per diluted share of about $1.42. Consensus analyst estimates currently expect revenue of $9.39 billion and earnings of $1.57 per share.

Although the webcast link is not yet live, we expect it to be here. (We will revise this link if necessary, when it goes live.)


  1. This quarter’s results will be especially interesting.

    First full quarter figures for iPhone sales
    Apple gave a very aggressive guidance for this quarter
    Increasing revenue from recurring payments from the iPhone
    Bumper quarter for the Mac?

    I expect Apple to beat their guidance easily by half a million revenue.
    What will be the big surprise is the significantly higher profit.
    I’m hoping Apple will post $2 bucks profit per share.

  2. You heard right, Webcast! It will be via AppleTv and that will get more people to buy AppleTv. And also movie rentals will be distributed with the torrent technology.

    Developers interested in building apps for the iPhone will buy their first Mac this year, and that will also lead to more Mac OS X native apps. Just you wait!

  3. Mel, yes, but the 20% underpredicting has NOT been revenue. It has been related to earnings. So, the $11B you cite as Apple needing to meet its historical overperformance is wrong. It’s not 20% better revenue, but 20% better than expected earnings.

    I’m trying to be nice, but if you’re going to try to correct people when you’re WRONG, then you deserve the crap you’re getting.

  4. Then you are going to explain better, because I think we can all agree that Apple’s prediction of $9.2 billion in revenue for the quarter was just that. They also predicted, I think it was, $1.47 per share earnings.

    I’m not saying that they have to meet an $11 billion revenue target.

    But, I really don’t understand what you’re saying. Are you saying that when they gave the guidance for this quarter, they DIDN’T give $9.2 billion as expected revenue? Because that would be wrong.
