Apple Guidance Good News for iPhone Launch
Upbeat guidance implies Apple is confident it can meet demand for its new phones.
Brian Colello: Apple reported fiscal third-quarter earnings tonight, and there was a lot to like in the earnings. The stock was up 6% after hours. Revenue, gross margins, and EPS all beat for the third quarter.
Looking at product by product, the iPhone sales for the third quarter were solid, particularly with the 7 and the 7 Plus. Those were a little bit higher than the 6S and 6S Plus sales a year ago, so Apple got some nice comps there.
