Apple earnings release 29 Jan

As Apple is set to release earnings tonight, it will be the first quarter that investors do not have sales reports on individual products before the release. This is because the company announced that it would not be delivering specific figures for iPhone, iPad and Mac sales for the quarter as they believe the number of iPhone sales “isn’t a representative of the underlying strength of our business” and that “a unit of sale is less relevant for us today than it was in the past, given the breadth of our portfolio and the wider sales price dispersion within any given product line.”

But we all know that when a company has sold a lot, they want to let the world know how well they have done, as said by Steve jobs himself “if a company is selling a lot of stuff, they want people to know about it. If they aren’t, then they don’t”. On top of that, it is no secret that iPhone sales were short of estimates in the previous quarter. Nevertheless, as the average price of an iPhone has increased, Apple’s profits are still being driven higher.

This leaves a wary sentiment about Apple’s earnings release. With a slowdown in sales offset by higher sale prices, and a general feeling that economies are slowing down growth, Apple’s Q4 earnings release is marked by the pre-announcement issued on Jan 2 where Apple reported it had missed expectations for the year due to a slowdown in sales in China.

As Apple shares suffered the weight of the slowdown and the subsequent downgrade from firms like Bank of America, could a lower expectation on the back of the Jan 2nd announcement mean that Apple can beat expectations?

theyre a great company but have really come to the very top of their growth stream for iPhone for the mid term i would think. There isnt anything exciting like there was before. People are getting pissed at having to stump up hundreds of dollars for a slight increase in their phone or Mac storage and stupid shitty cables and adapters. 

It is one massive behemoth of a company though. Subscription is the way of the world these days so its no suprise they're getting on board with this model more and more.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
