When are the Apple results?

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) the world’s largest company by market capitalization, is set to report fourth quarter results on Thursday, the 27th of October 2022

What ‘the Street’ expects from Apple Q4 2022 results?

Apple results continue to find a strong base of comparison with a year (2021) where the business thrived in a pandemic-stricken environment. Expectations are for mid to high single digit growth for the group’s full year revenue and earnings figures. The slowing rate of growth will likely be attributable to foreign exchange repatriation, a higher anticipated tax rate and an increase in operating expenses through the current high inflation environment in which we operate.

A consensus of estimates from Refinitiv data for the upcoming Q4 and full year 2022 Apple results arrive at the following:

  • Revenue for the quarter of $88.9bn (+6.65% year on year)

  • Full year revenue of $392.74bn (+7.36% year on year)

  • Earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter of $1.27 (+2.25% year on year)

  • Full year EPS of $6.10 (+8.81%)

How to trade Apple results

In terms of an institutional view as of the 20th of October 2022, a Refinitiv poll of 44 analysts have an average rating of ‘buy’ for Apple, with a long-term price target (mean) of $183.59. This suggests that the current price (as of 20th October 2022) trades at a 28% discount to what is deemed a longer-term fair value for the share.

    • Intrigued by Mande's "Onchain Credibility Hub"! DESO's user-owned data is another great idea for Web3. HMN's talent marketplace is a strong piece too. Bitget listing is cool, but focus should be on Mande's tech! Synergy possible: Mande verifies skills, HMN finds matching projects
    • Telcoin's definitely shaking things up with affordable mobile transfers! But MOB sounds interesting for secure everyday payments. Abra seems like a one-stop shop for global money stuff. Telcoin being on Bitget is cool, but competition is healthy! Maybe Telcoin can focus on low-cost remittances while MobileCoin tackles daily purchases. Telcoin's not the only player, but they're definitely a piece of the puzzle.
    • Telcoin is a frontrunner in leveraging blockchain technology for affordable and accessible mobile money transfers. Intrigued by this concept? Let's explore other projects working to revolutionize how we send and receive money around the world, with a focus on mobile solutions. MobileCoin (MOB), this project aims to provide a secure and private mobile-first cryptocurrency specifically designed for everyday transactions. Abra (ABRA), this global investment app allows users to buy, sell, and trade various cryptocurrencies and assets, including sending and receiving money internationally. So, is Telcoin the only game in town for mobile money transfers cause they got listed on Bitget? Maybe or maybe not! There are established players and innovative startups tackling this challenge. What do you think? Is Telcoin the future of mobile money transfers, or just a piece of the puzzle? Have you explored any other mobile money transfer projects? Share your thoughts in the comments!
