$FSLR said in 2Q16 it produced 785 MW DC for an increase of 1% from 1Q16, resulting from higher module efficiencies and increased throughput. Compared to 2Q15, production was 39% higher as a result of higher efficiencies, improved throughput and the addition of new capacity. Factory capacity utilization was unchanged at 100% in 2Q16 versus 1Q16.
Apple ($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%."
