Apple consistently releases comically low guidance, then obliterates it. For the last six quarters, Apple has beaten its guided EPS by 38%, and revenue by 16%.

If the trend holds, Apple will report $12.86 in EPS, and $42.9 billion in revenue. That would blow away the Street’s expectation of $10.07 EPS, and $38.76 billion.
