Nintendo’s Q1 earnings report disappoints with Wii U and 3DS sales down

Nintendo’s Q1 earnings report disappoints with Wii U and 3DS sales down

Nintendo has been very hot and cold lately. From the launch of Pokemon GO, which is shaping up to be the most impressive mobile game launch ever and caused Nintendo's stock price to soar, to the inevitable tumble back to Earth as Nintendo tried to temper investor expectations concerning the amount of money it would pull in from the title, Nintendo has been on something of a rollercoaster the past few weeks. The ride isn't over yet, as Nintendo's newest earnings report has hit, and the results for quarter one are disappointing to say the least.

Lenovo reveals Motorola integration failed expectations

Lenovo reveals Motorola integration failed expectations

Perhaps Motorola's "curse" continues. While many of Motorola's mobile devices, like the iconic RAZR or the Moto X, were well received, the company somewhat failed to become profitable. At least not long enough to stay put. Barely a few years after Google acquired it, Motorola was sold off again, this time to PC giant Lenovo. Now in its full-year fiscal report ending March 2016, the first fiscal year since it acquired Motorola, Lenovo candidly revealed that its integration of the mobile company fell below expectations, resulting in some losses though the general mobile business did grow as a whole.

HTC had a terrible Q1, ready for HTC 10, Vive rescue

HTC had a terrible Q1, ready for HTC 10, Vive rescue

When your revenue plummets by more than 60% in year on year figures, you should probably be panicking. HTC, however, isn't. Despite its very gloomy first quarter financial report, as expected by almost everyone, the Taiwanese company isn't curling up in a corner just yet. That's because it believes it has two aces up its sleeves: the HTC 10 smartphone and the HTC Vive virtual reality headset, both of which just barely missed the first quarter. Whether they're enough to truly save HTC from its sinking ship remains to be seen in the next three months.

Samsung Q1 2016 earnings are up, thanks to the Galaxy S7

Samsung Q1 2016 earnings are up, thanks to the Galaxy S7

Finally Samsung can breathe a little easier. After years and countless quarters of depressing financial results, the company is finally reporting an upward turn, at least for its first quarter earnings. Its strategies may be finally paying off and though it is probably too early to tell if it will hold in the future, Samsung is forecasting a more positive outlook for 2016. While most of its businesses, save for display panels, have seen increase in revenues, the relative success of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are credited for this positive turn of events.

Down, down, down: iPhone, iPad and Mac sales all dive in Q2 2016

Down, down, down: iPhone, iPad and Mac sales all dive in Q2 2016

This afternoon Apple reported their financial Q2 2016 earnings report for investors, and with it, falling sales in devices of all sorts. It's not as if this is the worst quarter Apple has ever had - far from it. Instead, it would appear that Apple's device sales have reached a saturation point. Many consumers that would be buying an iPhone, iPad, or Mac have already got one. As such, even Apple's astronomical sales numbers don't seem as spectacular as they have in the past.

Twitter users tank in Q4 earnings call

Twitter users tank in Q4 earnings call

In an earnings call this afternoon, Twitter reported a 2-million active user decline over the past three months. This is at odds with what the company had projected: just the opposite, a 2-million active user increase. Twitter has also made an effort to show that this quarter (their financial Q4) showed a "strong" business side, with continued strength in advertising business, especially in video ads and "across major verticals, channels, and geographies."

Surface is finally working for Microsoft

Microsoft's fiscal year 2016 Q2 earnings aren't looking so hot unless you know where to look: right at Surface. Windows OEM Pro revenue growth is down 6% year-over-year, one percentage point better than the first quarter, but still down compared to one year ago this quarter. Windows OEM non-Pro revenue growth is down 3% year-over year, while Windows volume licensing revenue growth is down 4% year-over-year. Search Advertising Revenue, Xbox Live active users, and Surface revenue are all on the rise.

Apple’s iPhone earnings “stall” was inevitable

Apple’s iPhone earnings “stall” was inevitable

For the first time since the iPhone was introduced, growth appears to have stalled. In Apple's earnings call for their financial Q1, 2016, they've revealed that the iPhone's growth (year-over-year) sits at 0% for unit sales growth and just 1% for revenue growth. This same quarter one year ago showed 46% unit sales growth year-over-year, while the same quarter the year before that showed 7% unit sales growth year-over-year. So wait a second, you might be saying, is this the sort of thing that happens every other year?

Apple’s Q1 2016 revenue grows while Mac sales slow

Apple’s Q1 2016 revenue grows while Mac sales slow

This afternoon Apple reported their financial Q1 2016 earnings with a cool $29.3 billion in revenue in the Americas and a total of $75.9 billion worldwide. This is up 47% sequentially and up 2% year-over-year, while guidance from the company last quarter suggested they'd be "$75.5 billion and $77.5 billion" - so they're right on the money. This overarching revenue story is told by iPhone sales, primarily, and iPad, Mac, and Services revenue to a slightly lesser degree.

Apple reports slowest iPhone sales growth since dawn of device

Apple reports slowest iPhone sales growth since dawn of device

Apple reported quarterly revenue of $75.9 billion as well as quarterly net profit of $18.4 billion. Apple suggested today that they'd sold a cool 74.8 million iPhones in this fiscal 1st quarter, up just 1 percent from the amount of iPhones sold this same quarter just one year ago. While this could be accounted for by the launch of the iPhone 6 as a "tick" year, and the iPhone 6s as a "tock", this is the slowest growth the company has seen for iPhone sales since the device line originally launched.

Samsung’s Q3 results are in, lets company breathe a bit

Samsung’s Q3 results are in, lets company breathe a bit

Samsung has just posted its financial numbers for the third quarter in a year and finally the Korean manufacturer has some room to breathe. But probably not for long. Even though the numbers are still small and still somewhat disappointing, consolidated revenues and operating profits have gone up, mostly thanks to its semiconductor and display panel businesses. The bad news, smartphone sales are still lower than hoped. The worse news, Samsung expects that the next quarter, nay the next year, will be even more difficult.

Microsoft Q3: Bing, cloud biggest winners, phones still down

Microsoft Q3: Bing, cloud biggest winners, phones still down

Microsoft's investments and patience with its products, despite criticisms and contrary suggestions, are probably starting to pay off. The company has released its financial report for the first quarter of the 2016 fiscal year, which ended September 30, 2015 and the numbers are quite the mixed bag. Although Redmond is practically reporting a revenue loss, the company is strangely upbeat about the business. The details do hint at some businesses experiencing a growth surge, with things looking hopeful. That is, except for the poor smartphone.
