Financial services technology solutions provider $FIS posted 4Q15 GAAP net earnings from continuing operations attributable to common stockholders of $105.5MM or $0.35 per diluted share versus $202.4MM or $0.71 per diluted share in 4Q14. Revenue in the quarter grew 11% to $1.9Bil from $1.7Bil last year. Non-GAAP net earnings were $278.4MM or $0.93.
Apple ($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%."
