When are the Apple results?

Apple Inc., the world’s largest company by market capitalisation, is set to report first quarter (Q1) 2022 earnings on the 27th of January 2022.

What ‘the Street’ expects from Apple Q1 2022 results

Since the pandemic’s disruption to supply chains and, in turn, the uncertainty pertaining to future earnings, Apple Inc. stopped issuing forward guidance for its quarterly results.

Q1 has historically been the strongest quarter of the year for Apple as it reports on the three months ending December, benefitting from pent-up holiday demand most notably for the latest installment of its iPhone.

iPhone sales led by the iPhone 13 could account for more than 60% of group revenue in the reporting period. High single digit to low double digit growth is expected from Mac sales. Wearables are expected to deliver mid-single digit sales growth while service revenue is likely to see only marginal growth if any.

A consensus of estimates from Refinitiv data for the upcoming Q4 2021 Apple results arrive at the following:

• Revenue for the quarter of $118.547 billion (+6.38% year on year)

• Earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter of $1.89 (+12.37% year on year)

How to trade Apple results

In terms of an institutional view as of the 21st of January 2022, a Refinitiv poll of 43 analysts has an average rating of ‘buy’ for Apple, with a long-term price target (mean) of $180.84.

In terms of a retail trading view, as of the 21st of January 2022, IG Client Sentiment data shows 86% of IG clients with open positions expect the price to rise in the short-term, while 14% expect the price to fall in the near term.

The share price of Apple continues to correct in the short-term along with the company’s tech sector peers. The correction follows the stock trading in overbought territory and was pre-warned by the head and shoulders chart pattern (shaded). The long-term uptrend for Apple does however remain firmly intact.

Traders respecting the longer term uptrend will be looking for signs that the correction has ended before looking for long entry. The 156.60 level finds a confluence of both trendline and horizontal support and provides the next downside target should the correction persist.

For long entry we are looking for a sharp bullish price reversal before this level, accompanied by a move out of oversold territory from the stochastic oscillator.

Summary

• Q1 2022 results are scheduled for the 27th of January 2022

• Revenue for the quarter of $118.547bn expected

• Earnings per share for the quarter of $1.89 expected

• The average long-term broker rating consensus for Apple is ‘buy’

• 86% of IG clients with open positions on Apple expect the price to rise in the near term

• The long-term trend for Apple remains up, although in the short-term we are seeing a correction from near term highs

    • Q: How can I experience the Fairy Cat metaverse? A: Debuting in January 2023, Fairy Cat is one of the most popular crypto metaverse games. While earlier games (World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Destiny 2) either precede blockchain technology or have not integrated it into their games at all, more recent metaverse iterations - such as FairyCat - integrate metaverse games and blockchain platforms. These so-called "crypto metaverse" games use blockchain technology to achieve encrypted in-game cash, play-to-earn (P2E) and non-fungible tokens (NFT), decentralization and other functionality to bring extraordinary benefits to metaverse games. relevant impact. You don't need to be a crypto expert to play this innovative game, although a little crypto knowledge is helpful to take advantage of all the functionality of FairyCat. Start exploring Fairy Cat: 1. Go to the Fairy Cat website to learn more about the game's currency models, then download the Metamask wallet. 2. Start earning money by opening the game in the Metamask wallet browser. At this point, the game will connect to your wallet account. Don't worry that this game will steal your wallet balance, because it doesn't need your account authorization data, it just needs your wallet data. 3. Once you are in Fairy Cat, you can go through a money transfer tutorial to learn the basic controls. Then you can earn money in the following three methods: Method 1: Adopt a cat to help you find treasures, and you can make profit after selling the treasures. Method 2: Synthesize an LV1 elf cat through 5 elves, and then sell the LV1 elf cat to earn money. This can be understood simply as using 5U to earn 10U (50% probability), and you can buy items to increase the synthesis rate. Method 3: Invite your friends to play the game. After your friends earn money, you can also get commission income. The income is very high.
