Wisconsin-based company $HOG said in 1Q16, operating income from the Motorcycle segment was down 3.8% from 1Q15. The company saw a 4.3% increase in motorcycle shipments. GM as a percentage of revenue decreased versus prior year due to unfavorable product mix and currency exchange in addition to higher YoverY startup costs.
Apple ($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?
