investors Monday in releasing yet another beyond-solid financial performance for the countrys most valuable company "Its tough to find something in the numbers not to like" Indeed Revenues for the companys second fiscal quarter grew 27% from the year-earlier quarter to $58 billion Apple earned $136 billion up 33% The company has done 27 acquisitions in the last year and a half and it is

Apples recent performance Whats more Apple continues to grow more than the competition in two key areas phones and PCs Both are astounding accomplishments if you stop and think about it On phones Apple was supposed to have been marginalized by now by phones running Googles Android operating system Android is mostly free and any manufacturer can use it Instead Apples share has continued to grow Cook said iPhone sales grew at a 40% clip during the quarter compared with a 15% rate for the overall market as calculated by IDC "In almost every country we grew at a multiple to the market" Cook said Even more remarkable is the continued resurgence of the Mac For years Apple was a single-digit niche player in PCs the choice of artists educators and other oddballs Luca Maestri Apples chief financial officer said the company sold 46 million Macs in the quarter a 10% year-over-year increase compared with a 7% global contraction for personal computers per IDC The Mac remains a tiny portion of Apples overall business But its an annuity business that amazingly is now picking up the slack from the slowing iPad When Cook says as he did Monday that he doesnt care which Apple products cannibalize others its easy to believe that he means it Apple has plenty of challenges ahead not the least of which is satisfying the elevated expectations of its consumers and investors (Cook said user feedback on the Apple Watch has been nearly 100% positive which judging from comments Ive been seeing may be a tad too exuberant) That said doing well while doing better than everyone else truly
