Friday, January 4th, 2019

I don't need to tell you that HTC is in dire financial straits, but I'm still going to tell you how dire because wow. HTC just released its year-end 2018 numbers, and things are looking bleak. HTC took in just 23.74 billion TWD ($770 million) during 2018, the lowest in all its years as a public company.

Alphabet records $33.7 billion revenue in Q3 but stock still falls amid missed targets

Friday, October 26th, 2018

In the wake of a record $5 billion EU antitrust fine, Google parent company Alphabet was still able to post a 25% increase in revenue at the end of Q2 (against that same period last year). Financial results for the third quarter of 2018 are in and despite strong profits, Alphabet missed its targets and share prices fell somewhat.

With revenues of $33.7 billion, the company still managed a 21% year-on-year increase, but that still wasn't enough to appease every investor.

WhatsApp to monetize by selling ads and charging business users

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

How to go about bringing in revenue has been a problem Facebook has failed to solve in the four years since it acquired WhatsApp. The world's most popular messaging app cost roughly $22 billion, but other than a brief experiment with charging an annual 99-cent subscription fee, there has been no clear plan on how to monetize the service.

There has been a reluctance to serve advertisements to its now 1.5 billion users, but it looks like that could change starting next year.

Samsung’s Q2 2018 financial results show lower profits following ‘soft’ Galaxy S9 sales

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Samsung has posted its financial results for the second quarter of 2018. Following two glowing quarters, Q2 2018 was relatively cool, with sales and profits falling compared to both last quarter and Q2 2017. The Korean electronics manufacturer said that "softer sales" of both the Galaxy S9 line and display panels were largely to blame.

Slower sales don't necessarily mean slow sales, though. In the quarter ending July 30, Samsung posted KRW 58.48 trillion ($52.26 billion) in revenue, with KRW 14.87 trillion ($13.29 billion) in operating profit — both lower than last quarter, but the company isn't exactly in trouble.

Alphabet posts huge 25% increase in revenue, investors shrug off impact of EU fine

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Alphabet's second-quarter results were just released to investors, and although revenues are up 25%, reaching $32.65 billion—comparing favorably to both last quarter's results and Q2 2017—it isn't all good news. Taking into account the effects of the recent $5 billion antitrust fine by the EU, net income is actually down significantly to ~$3.2 billion, a loss of 9.3% compared to Google's fine-extrapolated numbers for Q1 2017. That doesn't seem to have investors too worried, though, as the pre-fine numbers beat expectations by a large margin, driving up Alphabet's stock price in after-hours trading by 5%.

Samsung posts Q1 2018 financial results, tops expectations with record profits

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

It's that time of the... quarter. 2018 Q1 financial reports are being published by most of the big tech names, and Samsung is likely pretty pleased with its performance so far this year. It isn't quite as high as the impressive 2017 Q4 results it previously posted, but it's sitting pretty with a total of KRW 60.56 trillion ($56 billion) in revenue, with KRW 15.64 trillion ($14.51 billion) in operating profit. That's a revenue increase of 20% and an operating profit increase of over 50% compared to Q1 2017, beating expectations. 

A glut of Samsung's earnings came from continued demand in memory as well as its overall semiconductor foundry efforts.

Alphabet/Google exceeds Q1 expectations and continues to grow

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Alphabet, every AP reader's favorite umbrella corporation for their favorite company, has posted the results of their first 2017 quarter's earnings. Things are looking pretty good, too. Revenue and income are both up from the same period last year, even though Alphabet's tax rates have increased.

Just as a preliminary aside, for the purposes of this article I'll be using the names Alphabet and Google interchangeably. This isn't accurate, since Alphabet is involved in a lot of business outside of Google, but it's a reasonable convenience to think of them interchangeably.
