Pamatujete si ještě, že Apple vykázal zisk $13,06 miliardy? Kolik byste čekali od Amazonu podle, řekněme, „dojmu značky”? Nezapomeňte, že to bylo na prodeje největší čtvrtletí (Vánoce). OK, asi nečekáte, že Amazon vydělal víc, než Apple, ale o kolik míň si tak myslíte. Schválně se chvilku zamyslete.

Amazon vykázal zisk $0,177 miliardy. To vše při tržbách $17,43 mld.

Přidáno 2. 1. 2012: Samozřejmě Amazon stále velmi agresivně investuje třeba do rozšíření vlastních distribučních míst po celém světě o Kindle Fire ani nemluvě. Hezky se o tom rozepsal MG Siegler

The Company posted record quarterly revenue of $46.33 billion and record quarterly net profit of $13.06 billion, or $13.87 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $26.74 billion and net quarterly profit of $6 billion, or $6.43 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 44.7 percent compared to 38.5 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 58 percent of the quarter’s revenue.

The Company sold 37.04 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 128 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.43 million iPads during the quarter, a 111 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 5.2 million Macs during the quarter, a 26 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter.

Pro trochu perspektivy: Microsoft má čistý zisk za stejnou dobu $7,99 mld. a Google $2,71 mld.
Apple má tedy zisk asi o pětinu větší, než tyto dvě firmy dohromady.

Pokud jde o iPhony, tak jich prodali za rok 2011 víc, než za roky 2007, 2008, 2009 a 2010 dohromady.

Šílený.

Doplnění: Tržní kapitalizace Applu je jen 4,3 x větší, než jejich hotovost k dispozici. Žeby prostor pro růst akcií? ;-)

Microsoft’s Q2 2012 earnings report is in, and the company announced a record revenue of $20.9 billion — a 5 percent increase from the same period last year. Despite slowing PC markets, Microsoft’s Business and Entertainment & Devices divisions appear to have helped the company’s sales this quarter. Strong Xbox and Kinect sales boosted that particular division by 15 percent from the prior period, bringing it close to the same revenue generated by the Windows division. Microsoft’s Server & Tools business posted $4.77 billion in revenue, an 11 percent increase from the prior year period. Overall, the company didn’t take quite as much money home this quarter, though: Operating income, net income, and diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $7.99 billion, $6.62 billion, and $0.78 per share, compared with $8.17 billion, $6.63 billion and $0.77 per share, respectively, in the same period last year.

The big news came from Microsoft’s Windows and Windows Live division, which posted revenue of $4.74 billion, a six percent decline from the prior period — drawing a line under the slow down of traditional PC sales.
