$HAL 2Q15 Call: In 2Q15, HAL began marketing for sale, Fixed Cutter & Roller Cone Drill Bits, Directional Drilling, Logging-While-Drilling and Measurement-While-Drilling businesses as part of the regulatory review of pending Baker Hughes acquisition. On July 10, 2015, both Halliburton and Baker Hughes entered into a timing agreement with the DOJ.
Apple ($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?
