Apple posts FANTASTIC numbers for Q4 2012

Not slowing down apparently.

So Apple just posted some really great numbers for the last quarter.

The company posted a record $13.1b profit on a record $54.5b in revenue, compared to last year’s record of $13.06b profit on $46.33b in revenue.

The quarter before this, they made $8.2b profit on $36 billion in revenue.

Some important stats:

  • iPhone sales were a record 47.8m compared to 37.04m iPhones a year ago
  • iPad sales also set a record at 22.9m sold, compared to 15.43m last year
  • Apple sold 75m iOS devices last quarter.
  • Mac sales during the holiday quarter were down to 4.1m from 5.2m last year
  • iPod sales came in at 12.7m from 15.4m a year ago.
  • Over half a billion iOS devices have been activated.
  • iPhone sales in China have doubled year-over-year.
  • Apple’s retail stores are averaging 23,000 visitors per week, a seven percent increase.
  • Apple says it has delivered 4 trillion notifications in Notification Center, and it has 200 million Game Center users.
  • Apple TV’s sold – over 2 million during the quarter — up almost 60 percent year-over-year.

The results narrowly beat the consensus Wall Street projections, which had Apple posting a $12.8b profit on $54.8b in revenue. Apple also beat its own estimates, which were $11b in profits on $52b in revenue.

Since Apple stock lives in a weird bizarro zone, the news was greeted with passivity by the markets and the stock was down yesterday.

Go figure.
