In mobile application revenue war Apple seems stronger than Google. - dazeinfo.com
The company recorded revenues and EPS – excluding stock-based compensation – of $15.4 billion and $6.27. Analysts expected $15.5 billion in revenues with EPS of $6.41. Google revenues increased 19% YoY, but operating margins declined by 2% due to an increase in both legal costs and expenses related to acquisitions and investments. The decline in CPC – the amount an advertiser pays for a click – is rampant across the industry because while smartphones increase the volume of paid clicks, they yield lower prices compared to desktops. Google is optimistic and believes that mobile pricing will be better than desktop pricing in the medium to long-term.
