Subsequent to 2Q15, $Z agreed to buy DotLoop for about $108MM in cash, less certain transaction expenses and as adjusted at closing based on DotLoop's net working capital, cash and debt, plus the estimated fair value of substituted stock options attributable to pre-combination service. The purchase is expected to close in 3Q15.
Apple ($AAPL) reported decline in sales and profits from comparable quarter last year, attributing the decline to announcement of iPhone 7/7s.

Personally, looks like there is little downside in this investment.
Waiting with fingers crossed for $AAPL’s fourth quarter earnings.
