HTC manages $21 million Q3 profit, but revenue continues to slide

HTC on Friday announced unaudited financial results that showed an 8% decline in revenue in September, but the company still managed to eke a third-quarter profit as cost-cutting measures continue to boost HTC’s bottom line. After a massive 33% on-year revenue decline in July was reversed with solid 10% sales growth in August, September saw HTC swing back to a decline as revenue fell to NT$16.7 billion ($549 million USD) from NT$18.2 billion in the same quarter last year.

HTC’s total third-quarter revenue fell 11% on year to NT$41.9 billion. More →

BlackBerry reports $11 million Q2 loss, crushes Wall Street’s estimates

BlackBerry on Friday reported earnings for the fiscal second quarter of 2015, crushing Wall Street’s estimates and sending the stock soaring in pre-market trading on Friday.

Wall Street had expected a much larger loss of $0.16 per share, however, and BlackBerry’s stock shot up more than 8% as a result. More →

Wii U drags Nintendo into $97 million Q1 loss

Nintendo’s struggles continued in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, as relatively poor Wii U sales and high costs resulted in yet another loss for the struggling video game giant.

Revenue totalled 74.7 billion yen, or roughly $732.3 million, in the quarter, which represents an 8% decline from the year-ago quarter. More →

Flagship G3 drives record smartphone sales for LG

BGR recently reviewed LG’s new flagship G3, which just launched last week in the United States. We called the phone Android’s new king, supplanting Samsung’s lackluster Galaxy S5, which has been something of a disappointment for many consumers and for Samsung’s bottom line. While LG has a long way to go before it catches up to Samsung in terms of shipments, the company on Thursday reported record smartphone sales for the second quarter. More →

Apple posts monster Q3 profit on $37.43 in revenue, beats estimates

Apple’s stock has been soaring lately, up more than 24% over the past three months. Shares took off in late April when Apple announced a 7-for-1 split that would take place in early June, and the stock has kept climbing gradually ever since, inching closer to an all-time high that now sits just north of $100 after adjusting for the split. And if Apple managed the blowout quarter some industry watchers are expecting it to report on Tuesday afternoon, $100 might not be far behind. More →

Microsoft misses Q4 estimates with earnings of $0.55 per share on $23.38 billion in sales

Microsoft posted strong fiscal third-quarter earnings back in April, which helped carry the positive sentiment we’ve seen since Satya Nadella took over as CEO. Shares are now up about 12% over the past 12 months, having been given an extra boost when news leaked that Microsoft plans to eliminate 18,000 jobs, 12,500 of which will come from the Nokia devices and services business that Microsoft acquired recently.

Verizon reports solid Q2 results as tablets offset slowing smartphone sales

Verizon reports solid Q2 results as tablets offset slowing smartphone sales

Verizon on Tuesday posted second-quarter results that topped Wall Street’s expectations as huge tablet sales offset the continued decline of cell phone contract additions. Verizon posted earnings of $1.01 per share, or $4.34 billion in profit, which is down significantly from the $5.2 billion profit it recorded in the year-ago quarter. Revenue climbed nearly 6% to $31.48 billion, however. The nation’s top carrier only added 304,000 net new cell phone subscribers in the quarter, but 1.15 million new tablet additions certainly helped to bolster the company’s results. More →

HTC returns to profit in Q2 as steep climb begins

Thanks in part to sales of its flagship HTC One (M8) smartphone, HTC has delivered on its promise and returned to profit in the second quarter. The struggling handset maker on Thursday reported preliminary unaudited financial results for the June quarter, noting a narrow $75 million profit on revenue totalling just under $2.2 billion. The good news is that the company finally managed to return to a profit, but the bad news is that revenue is still sliding. In other words, sales are still sputtering but HTC’s recent cost-cutting measures have had a clear impact.

BlackBerry posts narrower than expected Q1 loss as smartphone sales improve

BlackBerry on Thursday morning reported earnings that beat the Street’s expectations by a significant margin, suggesting that the company’s cost-cutting measures are paying off more quickly than analysts expected. For the fiscal first quarter ended in May, BlackBerry reported a loss of $0.11 per share versus the consensus estimate of a $0.25 loss per share. The company’s $966 million in Q1 revenue missed the $976 million analysts were looking for, but smartphone shipments improved to 1.6 million units from 1.3 million in the year-ago quarter. Including non-cash and one-time items, BlackBerry actually managed a small profit of $23 million in the quarter. More →
