Convenience store chain $CASY reported a rise in 1Q17 earnings on higher fuel gross profit as both same-store gallons and margin exceeded goal. Net income rose to $67.4MM or $1.70 per share from $61.81MM or $1.57 per share last year. Revenue fell to $1.97Bil from $2.05Bil, due to weaknesses reported in convenience and food service industries.
Apple ($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%."
