$URBN, known for its trendy clothes targeted at the youth, said its website and mobile initiatives have contributed "significantly" to its 1Q16 sales growth. $URBN also revealed its plans to open 27 new stores in 2017, a sign that it still likes its brick and mortar strategy at a time when online sales have started eclipsing store sales.
Apple ($AAPL) reported decline in sales and profits from comparable quarter last year, attributing the decline to announcement of iPhone 7/7s.
