Denver-based REIT $AIV reported a rise in 2Q16 earnings, helped by higher gains on property sales in 2Q16 compared to the prior year quarter. Net income rose to $245.95MM or $1.41 per share from $68.69MM or $0.39 per share last year. Total revenues grew to $251.22MM from $244.78MM. Funds from operations (FFO) were $0.59 per share.
Apple ($AAPL) reported decline in sales and profits from comparable quarter last year, attributing the decline to announcement of iPhone 7/7s. Sales and profit are being guided higher for next quarter. Apple is a solid company and will continue to dominate tech and consumer electronics segment for a while. Personally, looks like there is little downside in this investment.
Waiting with fingers crossed for $AAPL’s fourth quarter earnings.
Looking ahead to $AAPL earnings release later in the afternoon today? Gene Munster, analyst from Piper Jaffrey and the most respected authority for Apple, had this to say - "The second and slightly larger group of investors believe the tail of the iPhone 7 is irrelevant, and is betting that the iPhone 10th Anniversary will yield a jump in growth from flat to up ~15%."
