56 – Q2 2016 Tech Company Earnings Review
We’re back after a two-week break, and this episode is exclusively devoted to a review of major tech companies earnings for Q2 2016, which were reported over the last several weeks. We take a thematic approach to the topic, focusing first on hardware companies, principally Apple and Samsung; then on the big ad-focused companies: Google, Facebook, and Twitter; and then two companies that stand somewhat apart: Microsoft and Amazon. We discuss the themes that emerged from earnings this quarter, and also some of the surprising elements in each company’s results. Next week, we’ll be back to our usual structure, with a News Roundup, Question of the Week, and Weekly Pick. As usual, you’ll find related links and other ways to listen to the podcast on the website at podcast.beyonddevic.es.
