Yep, it’s that time of the quarter again, when we start hearing analyst predictions for Apple’s quarterly earnings. Asymco analyst Horace Dediu has just tweeted his, forecasting that Apple will hit $38.62B revenue, above the company’s guidance of $36-38M. Wells Fargo’s Maynard Um recently predicted $38.2B … 

Dediu is expecting both iPhone and iPad sales to be significantly up year-on-year, iPhone sales at 33.7M versus 31.2 in the same quarter last year, and iPad at 16M against 14.6M in 2013. Mac sales will, he thinks, be slightly down – while iPod sales will, unsurprisingly, fall dramatically from 4.5M to 2.5M.

We’re expecting Fortune to do its usual analyst roundup ahead of Apple revealing the actual numbers on 22nd July. We’ll of course be bringing you the full results, together with live coverage of the follow-up conference call.

Thanks, Johnnyhands1

    Dediu has been wrong before so just ignore his chatter. Fanbois happen to be too generous with Apple revenue predictions and it really hurts shareholders when Apple misses those giddily exuberant estimates.

    After the conference call:

    “Apple falls short of analyst expectations with dissapointing numbers that only fall within their own projected guidelines.”
