Anthony DiClemente of Nomura questions how $TWTR re-accelerates advertising. COO Adam Bain said the company has two big opportunities, one in online video budgets and the second one on direct response and performance budgets.

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.
