Apple is expected to overshadow its rivals with a quarterly report reflecting how well its new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have done since being unveiled in September. Several other big tech names, however, are also poised to report their quarterly results. Let’s have a look:


The most anticipated results of the fourth quarter earnings will be declared by Apple today. The results will reflect the popularity of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Analysts calculate revenue earnings of more than US$51 million (AU$70.4 million) with earnings of $1.88 per share, as reported by USA Today. The new smartphones have helped push up revenue by many notches.


New CEO Jack Dorsey gears-up for his first earnings call as he reveals third quarter results today. Analysts speculate per share earnings of five percent off total revenue estimated at US$559 million (AU$772 million). After being named CEO, Dorsey put “reforms” in place like scheduling Twitter’s first layoffs. He also rolled-out the new Momentum feature on social networking sites.


This social networking for professionals will announce its third quarter earnings this Thursday.

Analysts estimate LinkedIn might earn 46 percent from each share, amassing US$756 million (AU$1,044 million) in revenue. Share prices have started to shrink after the company made a profit with share prices hitting a 52-week high at US$270 (AU$372.79) in February.


Alibaba is expected to release its revenue earning reports today. The Chinese commerce titan could report revenues of US$21.32 billion (AU$29.41 billion).

Last week was particularly historic as Alibaba took over the Chinese video service, Youku Tudou. This could open new doors for earnings.


Right now, the company is working on clinching a deal with Toshiba to acquire the latter’s image sensor business for US$165 million (AU$227.6 million), as reported by Bloomberg. The deal is expected to close at the end of this week.
