Mike Halloran of Robert W. Baird asks about the margin guidance, if $RBC suggested that margins are going to track up from Q1 to 2Q and then up again to Q3 or just up from 1Q levels. $RBC said that the company will see sequential improvement in 2Q16 and 3Q16 from where it was in 1Q16; 2Q is seasonally stronger market in climate solutions.
Apple ($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%."
