Current Q2 2011 Analysts' Estimates
Yahoo Finance analysts' estimates for calendar Q2 2011 are:
Total Revenues: $24.70B average, $23.00B low estimate, $26.20B high estimate, 47 analysts
Earnings per Share: $5.70 average, $5.03 low estimate, $6.42 high estimate, 50 analysts

Current Q2 2011 Apple Outlook
CFO Peter Oppenheimer provided guidance for the calendar Q2 2011 quarter: total revenues $23 billion, gross margin 38%, earnings per share $5.03. Apple usually provides low guidance and beats.

Prior Q1 2011 Financial Results
When Apple reports calendar Q2 2011, the 3 months ended June, financial results on July 19, Apple should meet or beat various Q1 2011 results. These results are charted on the Apple Financial Performance page. Apple for Q1 2011, the 3 months ended March, financial results were:
Total Revenues $24.667B
Operating Income $7.874B
Net Income $5.987B
Earnings per Share (Diluted) $6.40
Cash Flow per Share $6.64
Gross Profit Margin 41.42%
Operating Income Margin 31.92%
Net Income Margin 24.27%

Apple should beat their own Q2 2011 outlook ($5.03 earnings per share). The question is how much higher than $5.00 per share Apple will report. The analysts' average EPS is $5.70, which Apple will probably beat. For Q2 2011, Apple should beat on Total Revenues, Operating Income, Net Income, Earnings per Share, and Cash Flow per Share. Apple should match or be just slightly below on Gross Profit Margin, Operating Income Margin, and Net Income Margin. Overall, Q2 2011 is expected to exceed Q1 2011. Apple is expected to at least match the Apple Outlook Q2 Gross Profit Margin (38.00%), considering the Q1 2011 margin was an astounding 41.42% and well above the Q4 2010 margin of 38.51%. The detailed quarter by quarter charts are on the Apple Financial Performance page.
