MacMinute reports that Apple on Wednesday posted a net profit of US$46 million, or 12 cents a share, for its fiscal 2004 second quarter ended March 27, 2003. These results compare to a net profit of $14 million, or 4 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter. Revenue for the quarter was $1.909 billion, up 29 percent from last year. Apple said it shipped 749,000 Macs and 807,000 iPods during the quarter, representing a 5 percent increase in CPU units and a 909 percent increase in iPods over the year-ago quarter. “Apple had a great quarter with 29 percent revenue growth and 200 percent earnings per share growth year-over-year,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “We experienced growth in most areas of our business-most dramatically in selling a record 807,000 iPods, up more than 900 percent over the prior year.”

Those are some awesome numbers! I don’t know if anybody here knows anything about financial info for a company, but to have that amount of growth in quarter is a strong statement to investors of Apple…

“Gross margin was 27.8 percent, down from 28.3 percent in the year-ago quarter.”

This is not good, and isa recipe for disaster. The aim of every high-tech company is to grow margins along with revenues, to pay for increased R&D.

I didn’t know that the growth margin was still lacking from last year’s quarterly statements.  Thanks!  Looks like they still have some catching up to do…
