$PCG 2Q15 Q&A: Arnold from Deutsche Bank asked about miscellaneous items in the quarter. Kent replied that in Q2 we did have a couple of settlements with contractors, our litigation settlements. So that added to the quarter compared to what we would normally see. Overall it’s always hard for us to forecast miscellaneous by their very nature.
Apple ($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%."
