$KMB 2Q15 Call: We continue to experience significant currency headwind. The total earnings drag from currency was approx. $0.30 in 2Q15. For full year, we expect that currency will negatively impact earnings by more than 20%. Adjusted earnings per share were $1.41, that's up 6% YonY, and include an approx. 3-point benefit from lower share count.
$MCD stock rose more than 2% after it posted better than expected 3Q16 results, driven by global same-store sales growth. Meanwhile, earnings and revenue were lower than last year, hurt by refranchising efforts.
$RAI has received a $47 billion take over offer from British tobacco giant British American Tobacco! This is huge!
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
