APPLE Inc. (AAPL) (d-w-m) (p5)

 I.  Apple Inc.  (AAPL) for Monday 4/25/2016  ( Updated 4/26/16 See below )
  Per Apple Inc. Investor Relations News:   ( http://investor.apple.com/ )
   FY 16 Second Quarter Results
    Apple’s second quarter earnings announcement has been rescheduled to Tuesday, April 26, at 2:00 p.m. PT/5:00 p.m. ET out of respect for the friends and family of Bill Campbell, whose memorial service will be held Monday. Apple executives and employees will be attending the service to remember Bill and his many years of friendship and service to the  Apple community.
Tomorrow, after the markets close, Apple Inc. will be reporting Q2’2016 earnings.
The analysts will surely be focusing on Apple gadgets.  We shall be focusing on what Apple Inc. management says about growth in service revenues; i.e., customers not just buying the need to have Apple gadgets … but, also paying discretionary funds to Apple Inc. for additional support, et cetera.   The quote “Apple’s installed base drove over $31 billion in related purchases in FY15, up 23% Y/Y, and almost $9 billion in Q1’16, up 24% Y/Y” from the supplemental materials is every bit as important as gadgets sold. 
  Before an new earnings report, I find it beneficial to take an hour, or two,  to review my notes I made when I listened to the previous quarter’s report and examined provided materials.

 Disclosure:   I own Apple Inc. (AAPL)  shares.   First and foremost, I am doing this “Bull and Bear“, “PROs/CONs“, analysis for myself, as my homework and my due diligence, on my investment in Apple Inc.  Sharing what I am seeing, opens the door to family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and readers, to read that which interests them, or that which they asked about,  … and ignore that which doesn’t … after all it’s your money.  Please feel free to add to the discussion.  The  (d-w-m) in any of my blog titles advises my readers that the article will include charts, .. daily, weekly, and monthly charts along with observations,  analysis, and projections.   Please Note:  these  price projections are for reference only, and can be easily exceeded, or ignored,  by Mr. & Ms. Fickle Markets.   The (p5) in the title advises my readers that I have other blogs that may include related information I am not repeating here … (1) for the sake of space,  (2) so as to not sound like a broken record, but also (3) so readers can compare how the past observations,  analysis, and projections  panned out over time.
