For FY17, $GCO expects adjusted diluted EPS to be $4.80-4.90, representing a 12-14% rise over FY16. This does not include the expected non-cash asset impairments and other charges, estimated in the range of $9.8-10.3MM pretax, or $0.30-0.31 per share after tax. The guidance assumes comparable sales increases in the 1-2% range for FY17.
Apple ($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%."
