The company reported earnings of $13.6 billion, or $2.33 per share, up 33% from $10.2 billion, or $1.66 per share, a year ago. Analysts expected to see EPS of $2.06.

Revenue
Revenue increased 27% to $58.01 billion from $45.65 billion in the year prior. Analysts expected to see sales of $56.06 billion.
