$NEE posted lower 2Q16 earnings, hurt by lower operating revenues compared to 2Q15. Net income attributable to the company on a GAAP basis was $540MM or $1.16 per diluted share, compared to $716MM or $1.59 per diluted share last year. Operating revenues decreased about 12% to $3.82Bil in 2Q16. On an adjusted basis, diluted EPS was $1.67.
Apple ($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%."
