Apple reported an EPS of $1.40 on revenues of $89.58 billion. The revenue figures single-handedly beaten the $77.36 billion expected, marking a 53.7% increase year-over-year.
Not only the EPS and revenue came in higher-than-expected, but also the revenues for its products, as it reported double-digit growth in every category. iPhone – 65.5% increase from last year, figures coming in at $47.94 billion, while Mac’s surged 70.1% year-over-year to $9.10 billion. The most significant increase was reported for iPad – 78.9% YoY to $7.80 billion. These figures mark the second consecutive quarter when Apple posts double-digit growth in all product categories.
It kept last quarter’s trend of not issuing official guidance for what it expects in the quarter ending in June. However, Apple CFO Luca Maestri stated that the company expects June quarter revenue to increase by double digits year-over-year, even though it currently faces supply shortages. Moreover, Apple announced that it would increase its dividend by 7% to $0.22 per share, and it authorized a $90 billion share buyback program. The latter is significantly higher than what the company has previously allowed: $75 billion in 2019 and $50 billion in 2020.
In Q2 2021, Apple broke its record for gross margin – 42.5%, the highest in nine years. According to data from FactSet, usually, the number hovered between 37% - 39%.
Following the news, Apple stock price traded more than 4% higher.
