Apple to report Q3 earnings on July 23rd

Apple to report Q3 earnings on July 23rd
Four times a year, Wall Street goes crazy when it comes to Apple. Like a gambler trying to win everything back on the Super Bowl, stock traders use the increased volatility that happens around earnings season to try to make a few bucks in the options market. And when you're dealing with a company where everyone has an opinion, like Apple, the price swings are wide and the profit/loss potential is high.

The Cupertino based tech giant has announced on its web site that the next earnings report, for its fiscal third quarter, will be released on July 23rd. For the second quarter, revenue topped Wall Street expectations but profits came in lower for the first time in ten years. For the second quarter, the company reported $9.5 billion in profits, down from the $11.6 billion in profits it reported the prior year.  For the third quarter, Apple is expecting to report revenue between $33.5 billion and $35.5 billion with gross margin between 36% and 37%.

The quarterly conference call is expected to begin at 5pm EDT on July 23rd.

Ouch. No amount of tax evasion loophole could fix that.

I won't be surprised to see another disappointing quarter and another drop on the stock market. It is expected as no new product has really been announced (Other than the laptops with the Haswell chips). iOS 7 or the newly designed Mac Pro isn't really going to save them (for the stock market). For them to rise up again, they need a new product launch (New Apple TV or iTV, smartwatch, etc....).
