The world's No.2 oilfield services company $HAL cut costs in 3Q16 to post a profit, thus putting an end to its loss-making spree after the crash in oil prices devastated the industry. $HAL reported earnings of $6MM, or 1 cent per share, compared with a loss of $54MM, or 6 cents per share, a year earlier. Revenue fell 31% to $3.83Bil.
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
