AAPL Stock Opens Up 6% at New All-Time High
Apple surprised most investors yesterday with strong sales in the last quarter (fiscal Q3) and better-than-expected guidance for the next three months, signalling the company’s confidence in the upcoming iPhone cycle.
AAPL stock opened up more than 6% at $159, a new all-time high, with a market cap above 830 billion dollars …
The company announced sales of 41 million iPhones, 11.4 million iPads and 4.29 million Macs. With iPhone units in line with estimates (despite Tim Cook repeatedly stating that there is a ‘pause’ on iPhone sales due to rumors about next-generation models), investors were pleased by the sales numbers of the iPad and growth of Apple’s services business.
iPad sales were up 15% year over year, although revenue from the business segment increased just 2%. This heavily implies that the $329 iPad is a big hit, as iPad ASP fell despite the launch of the new premium 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.It's WWDC 2017 day!
