Weston, MA-based biotech firm $BIIB posted 1Q16 sales of $2.7Bil, up 7% YoverY, driven by increased revenues from TECFIDERA, ELOCTATE and ALPROLIX. For the quarter, net income attributable to $BIIB was $971MM, or $4.43 per diluted share, up 18% from $823MM, or $3.49 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter.
Apple ($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%."
