$LLTC 4Q15 Q&A: Nag of Macquarie asked about automotive business exposure. Lothar replied that automotive business is may be roughly 60-40 distribution, where 40% of it is really tied to sort of infotainment portion and 60% is kind of distributed throughout the rest of the vehicle. And in that, distribution has stayed surprisingly steady.
Apple ($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%."
