$RAI 2Q15 PR: Guidance FY15: Adjusted EPS has been increased to a range of $1.90-2.00 on a split-adjusted basis, up from a prior split-adjusted range of $1.83 -1.90. We expect to narrow this 2015 guidance range with the reporting of our third-quarter results after further assessing our new business dynamics following the acquisition.
Apple ($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%."
