Apple updated the page for investors, and pointed out that it would share financial data for the second fiscal quarter (first calendar quarter) may 1st is a Tuesday.
Current and potential investors will be able to find out the level of sales of the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X in the post-holiday period. Compared with the figure at 77.3 million iPhone sold in the first quarter, this measure would significantly fall.
During the previous report to investors, Apple has indicated the expected performance of the second quarter under which the company had to generate income from $60 to $62 billion with a gross profit of 38%-38,5%. In the same period last year, Apple received a profit of approximately $44 billion with the same gross profit.
During the financial report, Apple also announced changes in dividend payments. Last year, investors receive $0,63 per share for the quarter. In 2014, the year before the company conducted a stock split (each investor received two times more shares, the value of which has decreased in two), the payment was $3,29.
There is a possibility that this quarter Apple will not reach the targets for several reasons. Latest iPhone were less popular than expected manufacturers. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are in no hurry to upgrade to a little changed iPhone model 8 (Plus). iPhone X deters many potential buyers of high price.
