$WRK's 4Q15 earnings declined 58% to $0.44 per diluted share and net income fell 25% to $115.8MM from a year ago, hurt by $112MM of pre-tax restructuring and other costs. Its revenues also fell 5% YoverY to $3.87Bil, which is partly attributable to FX impact of $141MM and lower revenue after the sale of MWV European tobacco business of $44MM.
Apple ($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%."
