Today after the bell, Apple reported the results of the first quarter of its fiscal 2020. The company’s revenue totaled $91.8 billion, far ahead of expectations of $88.43 billion. At the same time, the company’s per-share profit of $4.99 per share was greater the market-anticipated figure of $4.54 per share.
In immediate trading following the news, Apple’s stock is up several points. The company’s shares have traded at all-time highs in recent months, matching the northward march of many other technology companies’ equity.
Previously, Apple had told investors that it expected revenue of “between $85.5 billion and $89.5 billion” in the quarter, along with “gross margin between 37.5 percent and 38.5 percent.” The company’s Q1 F2020 gross margin result? 38.4%.
Digging into the quarter a bit more, here’s how Apple’s performance shook out during the three-month period:

  • Product revenue: $79.1 billion
  • Services revenue: $12.7 billion
  • Net income: $22.2 billion

As you can see, Apple’s product revenue led its quarter. Digging into that line-item, here are the building blocks of its lucrative hardware business:

  • iPhone: $56.0 billion
  • Mac: $7.2 billion
  • iPad: $6.0 billion
  • “Wearables, Home and Accessories:” $10.0 billion

The company highlighted its smaller-device and home category, with its CEO Tim Cook saying his company posted “all-time records for Services and Wearables.” Apple has worked in recent years to lessen its revenue dependence on the iPhone; services and smaller electronics are some of its hopes to do so. This is doubly true as the company posted a year-over-year decline in Mac revenue.
All that spun out to earnings per share of $5.04 (basic), and $4.99 (diluted). More from TechCrunch soon digging into the company’s hardware sales and earnings call. Stay tuned.
