$KSU 2Q15 Q&A Update – Dave, CEO: On labor productivity in Mexico - we came out of a meeting with union with a 9,000-foot train link & ability to add 7 locomotives. So to run a 9,000-foot train, it take 6-7 locomotives. So if you think about it, that gives you about a 25% capacity gain without adding additional labor.
Apple ($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%."
