Analysts expect $4.06 EPS $18.86B Revenue Its that time again, apple is once again going to show they can under promise and over deliver. I think out of the thousands of earnings reports this is the most important and most looked at by most investors. Looking through the estimates the numbers break down as follows: Analysts are expecting $4.06 in EPS and $18.86B on Revenue, now of course we all know apple loves to under estimate its forecasts. It is a given fact that tonight AAPL will blow both the EPS and REV estimates away by a very large amount. EPS will certainly be well above $4.50 with Revenue probably just shy of $20 billion. Apple will easily pass analysts avg revenue forecast by $1 Billion!!! The highest EPS est. is $4.41, I think that's still too low of an estimate as well. The biggest part of apples earnings are of course their 4 favorite consumer products which are the iphone, ipad, ipod and imac. Estimates are literally all over the place. The break down I found searching through the estimates are as follows: iphone Anywhere between 8 Million and 13 million Iphones, AAPL is looking between 11-12 million ipad 4.5-5 million ipads. They sold around 3.3 million in the 3rd quarter. Just remember many, many analysts are predicting the ipad to become even a more of a success in 2011 as many predict that sales of the ipad will range between 20-50 million units. This quarter one analyst is predicting ipad sales to surpass 5.5 million units, "Rajesh Ghai, an analyst for ThinkEquity, said he believes Apple sold 5.7 million iPads." imac sales are expected to be between 3.5-4 million. ipod sales 9.5-10 million. Taking these 4 products, if apple sells 12.5 million+ iphones, 5 million ipads, 3.75 million macs and over 9.5 million ipods revenue could easily surpass $20 billion!!!!
