January 23, 2012, 2:34 PM Apple Earnings Preview: Analysts Expect Another Record-Smashing Quarter By Steven Russolillo Apple is scheduled to report its quarterly report after tomorrowÃ¢â¬â¢s closing bell. After last quarterÃ¢â¬â¢s disappointment, the company is expected to notch another blowout performance. AppleÃ¢â¬â¢s earnings last quarter fell short of analystsÃ¢â¬â¢ expectations for the first time since 2004, according to Birinyi Associates. The Street wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t so kind, as Apple shares that day notched their biggest one-day dollar decline ever, sending the stock below $400. Since that report, shares have recovered about 7% and last week hit another record high. The big takeaway for this upcoming report will be iPhone sales. AppleÃ¢â¬â¢s expected to release sales of its latest hit, the iPhone 4S. The company originally boasted it sold 4 million of the new iPhones during its first weekend of sales back in October, but it has yet to update that figure again. Pacific Crest Securities estimates the company sold 29 million iPhones last quarter. IPad sales will also be a key segment to watch. From Pacific Crest: The anticipated launch of a new iPad in FQ2 is likely to slow demand for iPad 2 in the coming weeks. Depending on the timing of the launch, Apple may not be able to sell enough new iPads to offset decreased demand for iPad 2, which could drive soft guidance and a reduction to Street iPad estimates. Wall Street currently expects Apple to report first-quarter earnings of $10.08 a share on revenue of about $38.8 billion. Those projections are ahead of the quarterly guidance Apple gave during its last report, when it was forecasting EPS of $9.30 on revenue of about $37 billion. For some historical perspective, traders typically react positively to AppleÃ¢â¬â¢s report. About 70% of the time, the stock has risen in after-hours trading following AppleÃ¢â¬â¢s earnings release, according to Birinyi. Shares average about a 2.4% gain in late trading. Apple shares were recently up 1.5% at $426.61.
