Here’s More Good News from Apple’s 8-K
It’s a good day to be an Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) investor. Soon after Apple revealed its record-breaking iPhone weekend sales numbers on Monday, the Cupertino-based company filed an 8-K form with the Securities and Exchange Commission that revised its previously provided earnings guidance for the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter.
“Apple expects total company revenue for the fourth fiscal quarter to be near the high end of the previously provided range of $34 billion to $37 billion, and expects gross margin to be near the high end of the previously provided range of 36 percent to 37 percent,” stated Apple.
Apple announced that it sold over nine million new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C models during the three days since the devices were launched on September 20. This year’s sales numbers shattered last year’s record of five million iPhone 5 units sold in three days.
