$GNTX's Automotive net sales for 1Q16 increased by 9% to $394MM from last year. This was primarily due to a 11% increase in auto dimming mirror unit shipments QoverQ. Other net sales jumped by 39% to $11.6MM, due to a 42% jump in dimmable aircraft window sales and a 36% growth in sales from fire protection products.
Apple ($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%."
