$DPS expects 2016 net sales to be up about 1% and core EPS of $4.20-4.30. Currency translation and transaction are expected to negatively impact sales by about 2% and core EPS growth by about 4%, or $0.18 per share. $DPS sees core tax rate of about 35.5%, capital spending of about 3% of sales, and to repurchase $650-700MM of common stock.
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
