Lodging REIT company $HST updated its FY15 guidance. Comparable hotel RevPAR growth to be 4.0-4.5% and diluted EPS to be $0.69-0.71 vs. previous guidance of 4.5-5.0% and $0.67-0.70, respectively. This is based on the potential future capital market transactions including additional share buyback, asset sale deals and recent market developments.
Apple ($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%."
