U.S. regional bank $KEY announced 3Q15 net income attributable to Key of $219MM, up 17% or $0.26 per share, up 13% from the same quarter a year ago. During 3Q15, $KEY incurred $19MM of cost related to a pension settlement charge, down $1MM from 3Q14. Revenue was up 7% from prior year, reflecting growth in net interest income and noninterest income.
Apple ($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%."
