$DO 2Q15 Q&A: Lowe of Cowen & Co. asked about current stacked rigs. Marc replied that 11 rigs are cold stacked right now and it varies in cost, but nothing is more than $5,000 a day, probably on avg. $2500 a day. As of now, there is no necessity to further impair or scrap assets. DO will do this market review on a quarterly basis.
Apple ($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%."
