$ZTS, which produces medicine and vaccinations for pets and livestock, posted 4Q15 net income of $22MM or $0.04 per diluted share, a decrease of 83% and 84%, respectively, compared to 4Q14. The decrease was mainly driven by charges related to changes in the company's accounting for operations in Venezuela. Revenue was $1.3Bil, down 3% from 4Q14.
Apple ($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%."
