Total volume rose in 3Q15 and YTD periods of 2015 for $UPS vs. 2014, largely due to faster growing premium air products and continued growth in e-commerce and overall retail sales. B-to-C shipments, representing approx. 45% of total US domestic package volume grew nearly 3% and drove increases in air shipments. UPS SurePost volume rose approx. 6%.
Apple ($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%."
