Apple to Announce Q2 2020 Earnings on April 30

Apple today updated its website to announce that it will share its earnings results for the second fiscal quarter (first calendar quarter) of 2020 on Thursday, April 30.

appleearnings2020
Apple's second quarter earnings results will give us a better picture of how product sales have fallen due to the pandemic that has spread across the world. Apple's stores outside of China have been closed since March 14, and Apple's stores in China were closed for several weeks in February.

In February, Apple announced that it would not meet its revenue goals for the quarter due to the outbreak. At the time, Apple cited store closures in China and manufacturing issues, but the problem has grown significantly worse since then. Apple originally expected to see revenue of $63 to $67 billion in the March quarter, but that number is likely to be much lower.

Apple's quarterly earnings statement will be released at 1:30 p.m. Pacific/4:30 p.m. Eastern, with a conference call to discuss the report taking place at 2:00 p.m. Pacific/5:00 p.m. Eastern. MacRumors will provide coverage of both the earnings release and conference call on April 30.

The numbers for the last quarter will not look good, no question. The forward outlook will be what matters.

Probably the most-important Earnings Call for AAPL the past 10-15 years !
It will be every publicly held company’s most important earnings announcement in the past 10-15 years, not just Apple’s.

Forward guidance will be the stock market’s focus. Everyone knows companies missed this past quarter.

Even if manufacturing is going back to normal, Apple should expect a drastic reduction in the demand of their products. A lot of people are tightening their belts because they don’t feel safe about their jobs anymore if not laid off already.

It's going to be bad, but we'll see how bad.

They likely won't even give guidance, like many companies. Too uncertain to even bother.

This one will have a lot of analysts on the line. A doozy of a phone chat to say the least.

I can’t actually remember the last time it was on a Thursday. But that might just be my old brain.
First questions will inevitably centre on impact of world events on the bottom line and new products.

But yes, Thursday is an unusual day. Usually if products were coming that event would be on a Monday and the Apple store would refresh on the Tuesday.
