Apple Q3 2012 Earnings Numbers Not Exciting, but Apple pays Dividend

Apple did good last quarter but missed estimates.

Apple released the Q3 2012 Earnings today. The numbers miss estimates and the AAPL stock is down 5% in after hour trading. This was actually expected. I assume some traders had hopes that there is a surprise.

Apple posted quarterly revenue of $35.0 billion and quarterly net profit of $8.8 billion, or $9.32 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $28.6 billion and net profit of $7.3 billion, or $7.79 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 42.8 percent compared to 41.7 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 62 percent of the quarter’s revenue.

Apple has sold 17 million iPads and 26 million iPhones in the last quarter.

“We’re thrilled with record sales of 17 million iPads in the June quarter,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’ve also just updated the entire MacBook line, will release Mountain Lion tomorrow and will be launching iOS 6 this Fall. We are also really looking forward to the amazing new products we’ve got in the pipeline.”

Apple’s Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $2.65 per share of the Company’s common stock. The dividend is payable on August 16, 2012, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 13, 2012.
