$DHR 2Q15 Q&A: Steve of JPMorgan: Anything fundamentally within the businesses from an organic perspective? Dan, CFO: As we see EMV regulations continue to come closer, those dynamics will continue to improve GVR. GVR was a little lighter in the 2Q, but good year-to-date, but look to see that accelerate in the back half of 2015 & clearly in 2016.
Apple ($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%."
