Apple shares rise after company reports better-than-expected revenue of $91.8B

Today after the bell, Apple reported the results of the first quarter of its fiscal 2020. The companys revenue totaled $91.8 billion, far ahead of expectations of $88.43 billion. At the same time, the companys per-share profit of $4.99 was greater than the market-anticipated figure of $4.54 per share.
In immediate trading following the news, Apples stock is up several points. The companys shares have traded at all-time highs in recent months, matching the northward march of many other technology companies equity.
Previously, Apple told investors that it expected revenue of between $85.5 billion and $89.5 billion in the quarter, along with gross margin between 37.5 percent and 38.5 percent. The companys Q1 F2020 gross margin result? 38.4%.
Digging into the quarter a bit more, heres how Apples performance shook out during the three-month period:

Product revenue: $79.1 billion

Services revenue: $12.7 billion

Net income: $22.2 billion

As you can see, Apples product revenue led its quarter. Digging into that line-item, here are the building blocks of its lucrative hardware business:

iPhone: $56.0 billion

Mac: $7.2 billion

iPad: $6.0 billion

Wearables, Home and Accessories: $10.0 billion

All that spun out to earnings per share of $5.04 (basic), and $4.99 (diluted).
The company highlighted its smaller-device and home category, with CEO Tim Cook saying his company posted all-time records for Services and Wearables. Apple has worked in recent years to lessen its revenue dependence on the iPhone; services and smaller electronics are some of its hopes to do so. This is doubly true as the company posted a year-over-year decline in Mac revenue.
Apple wrapped calendar 2019 with cash, equivalents and various types of marketable securities worth $207 billion, while its debt load appeared to land around $118 billion.
Looking ahead, Apple anticipates Q2 F2020 revenue between $63.0 billion and $67.0 billion, and gross margin in the same range as the sequentially preceding quarter. A more regular, non-holiday three-month period in other words.
More from TechCrunch soon digging into the companys hardware sales and earnings call. Stay tuned.
