$FTR's residential average revenue per customer (ARPC) was $63.83 for 3Q15, a decline of 0.9% sequentially. Lower voice ARPC, both stand-alone and within product bundles, was a contributing factor, partially offset by improvements in data. Business ARPC was up 0.6% sequentially. Adjusted EBITDA in 3Q15 of 41.4% was up 40 basis points from 2Q15.
Apple ($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?
