Wall Street Pummels Apple After Weak Q2 Earnings Report


Apple shares were trading at around $95 as of mid-day Thursday in the wake of the company’s disappointing Q2 earnings report. That was even lower than Wednesday’s opening price, which was down more than $8 from Tuesday’s $104.35 at market close. The company’s second-quarter performance was dismal. The iPhone recorded its first drop in sales — to 51.2 million units, down from 61.2 million in the year-ago quarter — and sales of other products also were down.
Overall sales fell 13 percent to $50.6 billion, and profits were down 22 percent year over year, to $10.5 billion, or $1.90 per diluted share.

HP's Whitman Pulls Out the Chain Saw


In the wake of a weak Q2 earnings report, HP has announced it will eliminate 11,000 to 16,000 jobs. The news was a blow; it was only two years ago that HP announced it would undergo a massive restructuring to move away from its PC roots. As part of that effort, it planned to eliminate 34,000 jobs. While the extent of the cuts was a shock, the company was bolstered by its then relatively new CEO Meg Whitman, who had taken the helm in late 2011 amid predictions that she would act boldly to turn the flagging company around.
