One of the best non pro analysts out there Horace Deidu posts his predictions for this Q 60B$ rev 15.74$
All these currents make this quarter doubly difficult to forecast. And it does not help that it comes on the back of two weak quarters which were argued away as exhibiting transition effects.
So I’m very uncomfortable with my forecast and find it hard to defend this quarter. I considered not publishing one at all because it gives too much confidence when none is warranted. However, I received so many requests to publish that I relent and offer the following:
•iPhone units: 55.5 million (50%/62%)
•Macs: 5.0 million (-4%/+3%)
•iPads: 24.4 million (58%/70%)
•iPods: 11.2 million (-27%/-22%)
•Music (incl. app) rev. growth: 25%/38%
•Peripherals rev. growth: 10%/19%
•Software rev. growth: 5.5%/14%
•Total revenues: $60.0 billion (30%)
•EPS: $15.74 (13%)
I included two growth figures (in parentheses). The first is a straight y/y value and the second is adjusted by assuming there were 13 weeks last year (and that sales were evenly distributed over those weeks).
