for big tech to take the spotlight and unveil quarterly results. Needless to say, investors are more than ready to finally see what has transpired behind the scenes.We’ve received several notable quarterly reports so far, including those from Microsoft MSFT, Netflix NFLX, and Tesla TSLA.Now, the legendary Apple
AAPL is gearing up to unveil its quarterly results on Thursday, February 2nd, after the market close.How does the titan stack up heading into the release? Let’s take a closer look.Key MetricsOf course, iPhone revenue will be a closely monitored metric, as it’s been the company’s flagship product and primary source of income. In addition, the results will slightly gauge how many consumers chose to stay with their current iPhone model rather than upgrade in the face of a harsh economic environment.For the quarter, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for iPhone revenue stands firm at $68.7 billion, indicating a decrease of 4% Y/Y. Still, it’s worth noting that Apple has exceeded our consensus iPhone revenue estimate in three of its last four quarters, with one marginal miss coming in its latest release.In addition, revenue from the company’s services, including Apple TV+, Apple News+, and Apple Card, has become a solid contributor to its top line, another metric investors will look out for.Currently, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for Apple’s Services revenue stands at $20.5 billion, suggesting an increase of nearly 6% Y/Y.Quarterly EstimatesAnalysts have taken a bearish stance for the quarter to be reported, with seven downward earnings estimate revisions hitting the tape over the last several months. The Zacks Consensus EPS Estimate of $1.93 suggests a decrease of roughly 8% Y/Y.Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchOur consensus revenue estimate for the quarter sits at $121.2 billion, indicating a decline of roughly 2% Y/Y.Quarterly PerformanceApple has managed to deliver better-than-expected results despite facing a challenging business environment, exceeding the Zacks Consensus EPS Estimate in four consecutive quarters.Just in its latest release, the titan registered a 2.4% EPS beat paired with a 1.9% sales surprise.
