On a geographic basis, $MMM's sales rose 6% in Asia Pacific, and 4% in the US, while sales in Latin America/Canada fell 1%, and EMEA fell 5%. Sales in Industrial fell 3% in US dollars. Sales in Safety and Graphics rose 2.9%, Health Care sales rose 4%, and Electronics and Energy sales fell 13.6% in US dollars.
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
