$EBAY 2Q15 Call: With respect to share count on a go-forward basis for PayPal, Patrick said the starting point will be determined by the conversion rate on June 20, 2015. He also said the formula is simple, ratio of opening price of PayPal vs. closing price of eBay Inc. Every existing holder of eBay Inc. gets 1 share of PayPal & 1 share of eBay.
Apple ($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%."
