So, Apple must have had a pretty dismal quarter, right? I mean look at those guys’ quotes!

Apple reported record earnings of $14.50 per share on sales of $57.6 billion Monday — beating both its and Wall Street’s expectations.
51 million iPhones in sold.
26 million iPads sold.
4,8 million Macs sold.
6 million iPods sold.
In. One. Quarter.

Oh yeah, 160 BILLION in cash. Clearly doomed.

Apple FY13 results.

Apple generated $170.9 billion in sales, a new record for the firm, with just over $35 billion in net income.

In 2013, Apple sold 16.34 million Macs, its lowest total since 2010, and 26.4 million iPods, its lowest total for that category since 2005.

It sold a record 150 million iPhones on the year, up 25 million from 2012, and the company has now sold 421.3 million smartphones in total. It sold 71 million iPads, a new record, and the company has now sold 169.2 million tablets.

The company currently holds $146.8 billion in cash and marketable securities.

Clearly doomed.
