$TMO 2Q15 Call: Specialty Diagnostics Segment revenue was $817MM, down 4% compared with revenue of $855MM in the second quarter of 2014. Organic growth was 2%. Adjusted operating income decreased 4% in Q2 & adjusted operating margin was 27.8%, up 20BP compared with 27.6% in the year-ago quarter.
Apple ($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%."
