| Monday, October 18th, 2010

Apple released its fourth quarter financial results today after the markets closed. In a conference call that was also webcast, Apple’s CFO Peter Oppenheimer and CEO Steve Jobs discussed Apple’s sales and earnings figures, as well as shed some light on future directions for the company.

A few notes from the conference call:

In a press release ahead of the conference call, Steve Jobs said:

We are blown away to report over $20 billion in revenue and over $4 billion in after-tax earnings—both all-time records for Apple. iPhone sales of 14.1 million were up 91 percent year-over-year, handily beating the 12.1 million phones RIM sold in their most recent quarter. We still have a few surprises left for the remainder of this calendar year.

Some of the numbers:

Apple’s report exceeded analysts’ expectations of $18.86 billion in revenue for the quarter. Apple’s stock, which closed at $318, fell in after market trading.
