$ROP 2Q15 Call: Book-to-bill was 0.99 in each of the segments and orders were quite consistent with revenue. Revenue was up 1% overall, Gross profit up 100BP, operating margin 60BP. Lowered our tax rate from 30.4% of last year to 25.7% this year, and that has certainly helped the net earnings being 5up 10%.
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.
