Apple has just announced that it will be posting its Q1 2014 financial results on Jan. 27. Of course, the Cupertino-based company will issue on that day a press release detailing its earnings during the first quarter of its new fiscal year. And with CEO Tim Cook at the helm, it will also hold a conference call. In both cases, Apple is expected to report its financial performance over the holiday shopping season with specific regard to its recently released iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display, and Mac Pro. At Apple's previous earnings call, Cook said:
We’re excited to go into the holidays with our new iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, iOS 7, the new iPad mini with Retina Display and the incredibly thin and light iPad Air, new MacBook Pros, the radical new Mac Pro, OS X Mavericks and the next generation iWork and iLife apps for OS X and iOS.For the all-important first quarter of fiscal 2014, Apple predicted its revenues to be between $55 billion and $58 billion with a margin of between 36.5 percent and 37.5 percent. At its upcoming earnings call, Apple is also likely to communicate its projections for this year in general and the next quarter in particular. As noted in Apple’s Investor Relations webpage, Apple's Q1 2014 conference call will take place on Monday, Jan. 27, at 2 p.m. PST / 5 p.m. EST. It will be accessible via audio webcast at a yet to be provided Apple Events link. If you have an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 4.2 or above, any Mac running OS X 10.5 or above, or any PC running Quicktime 7 or later, you’ll be able to listen to the call live on your device.
