When are the Apple results?

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) the world’s largest company by market capitalization, is set to report fourth quarter results on Thursday, the 27th of October 2022

What ‘the Street’ expects from Apple Q4 2022 results?

Apple results continue to find a strong base of comparison with a year (2021) where the business thrived in a pandemic-stricken environment. Expectations are for mid to high single digit growth for the group’s full year revenue and earnings figures. The slowing rate of growth will likely be attributable to foreign exchange repatriation, a higher anticipated tax rate and an increase in operating expenses through the current high inflation environment in which we operate.

A consensus of estimates from Refinitiv data for the upcoming Q4 and full year 2022 Apple results arrive at the following:

  • Revenue for the quarter of $88.9bn (+6.65% year on year)

  • Full year revenue of $392.74bn (+7.36% year on year)

  • Earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter of $1.27 (+2.25% year on year)

  • Full year EPS of $6.10 (+8.81%)

How to trade Apple results

In terms of an institutional view as of the 20th of October 2022, a Refinitiv poll of 44 analysts have an average rating of ‘buy’ for Apple, with a long-term price target (mean) of $183.59. This suggests that the current price (as of 20th October 2022) trades at a 28% discount to what is deemed a longer-term fair value for the share.
