Online travel company $EXPE reported a 1Q16 loss of $121.86MM or $0.81 per share compared to a profit of $44.14MM or $0.34 per share last year, due to higher costs and expenses as well as rise in restructuring and other charges. Revenue grew to $1.9Bil from $1.37Bil. Adjusted EPS was $0.09 compared to loss per share of $0.03 last year.
Apple ($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%."
