$CAM 2Q15 Q&A: Citigroup’s Scott questioned on 2016 Drilling margins, to which Scott said the new project business is not merely as profitable as the services side. So, that revenue will drop in 2016, leading to a loss of some lower margin work. While it is still very early, we don't see a reason why margins can't grow in Drilling, he added.
Apple ($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?
