Cash immediately, uncertainty tomorrow
One other quarter, one other muscular earnings report. Apple simply can’t cease being profitable.
On Thursday the corporate reported $97.3 billion in income for the second fiscal quarter of 2022, up 9 % on the identical quarter final yr, and a shocking $25 billion in revenue. Each figures are all-time second-quarter data, and virtually each product class (the iPad took a small dip) confirmed development. Apple reached new highs in its put in base in each one among its main product classes and geographic segments. And all this was towards a backdrop which monetary consultants name a “powerful comparability.” It’s an outstanding efficiency.
However Jason Snell–primarily based on noises made by Apple itself–senses uncertainty forward. Provide chain constraints loom once more, and CFO Luca Maestri has warned that this quarter Apple will miss out on between 4 and eight billion in income in unfulfilled demand. It’s powerful to drop eight invoice and hold successful.
Apple has been an astonishing success story throughout what’s been a grim interval for everybody else. But that wasn’t completely surprising.

However previous efficiency, as they are saying, is not any assure of future outcomes. And each empire crumbles in the long run.
