As we all know, companies are in business to make money. A company may have the best product on the market or in every household but the question still remains. Are they making money? In this section, we will be taking a detail look at the financials of Apple since the lunch of the first Iphone in 2007.

On June 29, 2007 (the first day of the Iphone) apple was trading at $ 121 dollars a share. At year end September 29st 2007, just three months after the first Iphone release, Apple was trading at $ 154 dollars. That’s a 27 % increase in share price. As impressive as that sounds, there are other ratios that are used by managers and investors to analyze and forecast the profitability and efficiency of a company.
