$RCL 1Q15 10-Q: Total cruise OpEx was $1.22Bil vs. $1.30Bil in 1Q14, decreased $0.08Bil, or 6.2%. Total cruise OpEx, excluding favorable effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and decrease in cruise operating expenses from sale of Pullmantur's non-core businesses discussed above, decreased 1.3% from 1Q14.
Apple ($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%."
