$EDR's new-community portfolio opened the 2016-2017 lease term 88.8% occupied, at the lower end of expectations. Opening occupancy was lower than typical underwriting due to known occupancy shortfalls at the Hub community, serving the University of Wisconsin. $EDR reiterates its full year 2016 guidance for core FFO per share/unit of $1.73-1.79.
Apple ($AAPL) reported decline in sales and profits from comparable quarter last year, attributing the decline to announcement of iPhone 7/7s.

Personally, looks like there is little downside in this investment.
Waiting with fingers crossed for $AAPL’s fourth quarter earnings.
