Consumer electronics retailer $BBY reported better-than-expected 1Q17 results, helped by higher operating income. The company posted 1Q17 net earnings from continuing operations of $226MM or $0.69 per diluted share compared to $37MM or $0.10 per diluted share. Enterprise revenue was $8.4Bil in the quarter. Non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.44 per share.
Apple ($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%."
