Mac, iPod retail sales dip in April

by Erica Ogg

Just like February, April was a gloomy month for Apple retail sales of Macs
and iPods, according to data gathered by the NPD Group.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster analyzed the monthly data from NPD's
April roundup of Apple sales. He said in a research note Monday that April
Mac sales were down 1.8 percent from a year ago. Assuming similar patterns
for May and June, that should lead to total quarterly sales of 2.1 million
to 2.3 million Macs, which would be an 8 percent to 16 percent decline in
unit growth, he writes. If that does happen, it would represent the second
quarter in a row of falling Mac shipments. Munster puts a positive spin on
it, saying that the drop in sales was not as bad as expected given the
current shape of the economy. Plus, Apple's situation appears rosy compared
to its PC brethren, whose growth collectively was negative 7 percent in the
most recent quarter.

It also appears iPod growth is headed downhill. Munster points to 9 percent
declines in iPod sales in April, which puts the business on track for 9.5
million to 10.5 million units for the quarter, or anywhere from a 5 percent
to 14 percent dip. That's despite the introduction of the updated iPod
Shuffle, introduced in March.

Declining Mac and iPod sales amid Apple's continual overall solid
performance only serve to underscore the importance of the iPhone to the
company's bottom line.

Gartner: Apple's Q4 Mac Sales Up, But U.S. Market Share Slips to 7.5%

January 14th, 2010 at 4:08 PM - News by Bryan Chaffin

Apple's Mac unit sales rose in the December quarter of 2009, but the company
saw a somewhat rare year-over-year decrease in market share, according to a
report published by research firm Gartner. The firm said that Apple sold
some 1.483 million Macs in the U.S. during the quarter, a 23.3% increase
over the prior year and enough to keep Apple in the Top 5, but market share
slipped from 7.7% to 7.5%, and Apple dipped to one spot to be the #5
computer maker in the market.

iPhone's Market Share Slips Amid Smartphone Boom

February 02, 2010 - Digital and Mobile

By Antony Bruno, Denver

The number of iPhone sales in the fourth quarter of last year increased over
the previous quarter, but Apple still lost ground in overall market share
thanks to increased smartphone penetration.

According to ABI Research, via the Wall Street Journal, Apple sold 8.7
million iPhones in the final quarter of 2009. That's an 18% increase over
the previous quarter, no surprise given all the holiday sales. But its
market share fell from 18.1% in the third quarter to 16.6%. Overall, the
smartphone market grew 26% from quarter to quarter.

So explain to me once again why a company should be concerned with
market share over profitability?
