$ZION 2Q15 Call: The overall rate of increase on classified loans was very slight at 1.9%. NPAs declined more than 3% from the prior quarter. Moderate increase in classified loans attributable to energy loans. Allowance for credit loss remains strong, at 1.72% of total loans and leases, 1.9x coverage of NPAs and 15x coverage of annualized NCOs.
Apple ($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%."
