MacVoices #20128: Apple Earnings Report Discussion with Mark Fuccio

Mark Fuccio provides some thoughts on Apple’s April 2020 financial call. Once again, Apple beat the Street’s expectations. Mark comments on that, his opinion on the no financial guidance for the upcoming quarter, and then digs in to some of the other details that may give us hints of the future. Investments in manufacturing equipment, the ongoing stock buy-back program, and the importance of the rumored ARM-based Macs are discussed, along with the importance of market share trends and how Apple is positioned in the post-COVID-19 market as the way business is done changes.
