With earnings season comes yet another glorious release from Samsung. The owner of the Galaxy line of phones and tablets is all smiles following its Q2 2012 earnings report, which details a record operating profit of 6.72 trillion won on consolidated revenues of 47.6 trillion won. In U.S. currency, that's about $5.86 billion in operating profit. If you'll recall, Apple netted just under $9 billion in net profits during its most recent quarter. By business unit, the Mobile Communications Business was one of the leading growth drivers in the June quarter, with some estimates pegging sales of the... Read more...
It's earnings season, and Apple is once again at the forefront. The company has become something of a spectacle in recent years, seemingly unable to not turn a ridiculous profit every chance it gets. Lately, it has felt like one record quarter after another, and while Q3 2012 wasn't quite as amazing as its last holiday quarter, there are still quite a few dollars flowing into Apple's coffers. The summer quarter is always an interesting one, and this year is even more so. Not only are people perhaps waiting a bit before buying their back-to-school Mac, they're also waiting for the next-generation... Read more...
You may think that Microsoft would be losing steam as people hold off on the release of Windows 8 -- not so much. The company is forging ahead, full-steam, too, with a "record Q4." Along with a few other companies in the space this week, Microsoft also released its latest earnings report. The big number is $18.06 billion, which is how much cash the company pulled in during the past three months. Operating income and loss per share for the quarter were $192 million and $0.06 per share. The financial results reflect the previously announced non-cash, non-tax-deductible income statement charge of... Read more...
You could argue that the economy is still rebounding, but not if you're Intel. The chip giant is raking in money like it's no big thing, with second quarter earnings showing a revenue score of $13.5 billion. That's right. $13.5 billion earned in a single quarter. Must be nice to be the king, you know? The corporation managed operating income of $3.8 billion, net income of $2.8 billion and EPS of $0.54. The company generated approximately $4.7 billion in cash from operations, paid dividends of $1.1 billion and used $1.1 billion to repurchase stock. Wondering how the CEO responded to all the news?...

It’s been a good year for Lenovo; the company announced its full-year 2011/2012 fiscal results, which include record numbers for sales, income, and market share. The big announcement is that Lenovo now claims the mantle of world’s second-largest PC vendor, a feat made more impressive as it began the year in fourth place. For the year, Lenovo had sales of $29.6 billion (a 37% increase from 2010/2011), with a 54% jump in sales ($7.5 billion) in the fourth quarter alone. Those sales brought in pre-tax income of $582 million, which is a 63% percent increase over the previous year; net profits... Read more...
With Apple announcing yesterday that well over 30 million iPhones were sold last quarter, surely Sprint had a hand in helping out there, right? Right. But they didn't ship nearly as many as Verizon, AT&T or a lot of other global carriers. According to the carrier's numbers, they managed to sell around 1.5 million of Apple's phones in their Q1 2012. That's double the amount they sold last quarter, but still not enough to save them from an overall operating loss of $255 million. The good news is that Sprint racked up lots of new subscribers on the iPhone front; 44% of iPhones were sold to people... Read more...
Microsoft is doing a bit of celebrating right now, if we had to guess. The company just wrapped up another quarter, and the profits are rolling in. They today announced quarterly revenue of $20.89 billion for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2011, a 5% increase from the prior year period. Operating income, net income, and diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $7.99 billion, $6.62 billion, and $0.78 per share, compared with $8.17 billion, $6.63 billion and $0.77 per share, respectively, in the prior year period. The Microsoft Business Division reported $6.28 billion in second quarter revenue,... Read more...
It's the quarter-end for HP, also known as the corporate overlord that just can't make up its mind about anything. On its second CEO this year (and third in not-too-much longer), the company's Q4 2011 earnings are nothing to scoff at. Despite the turmoil, money seems to be flowing into HP's coffers like beer out of a college keg, as the company reported net revenue of $127.4 billion, net revenue of $32.1 billion, GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.12 and cash flow from operations of $2.4 billion. Lots of "billions" in there, and remember, we're talking about a quarter. The results actually beat... Read more...

While Occupy Wall Street surges on, corporate profits are still hitting new highs. Intel and Apple already celebrated accordingly over the past week, and now it's Microsoft's turn. Of course, nailing down Android-related cross-licensing agreements can't hurt -- after all, it's not like Microsoft can complain with making money each time a rival phone is sold -- but they've also done a myriad other things to bolster sales. The company just announced record first-quarter revenue of $17.37 billion for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2011, a 7% increase from the same period of the prior year. Operating... Read more...
