    Earnings Watch: China should support Apple growth

    Head of Equity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Apple reports FY15 Q4 earnings on Tuesday. Investors will be focusing a lot on China due to the ongoing uncertainty of China's economy but also the country's importance for Apple which accounted for 27% of revenue in the previous quarter. Nothing suggests that demand is slowing down and we maintain our bullish view on the stock. In addition 367 companies will report earnings.

    Sony says profit to quadruple this year, with room for more

    Kazuo Hirai, leading Sony Corp. on a comeback after years of losses, is giving himself plenty of room to deliver more good news in the future. The chief executive officer says operating profit will more than quadruple to 320bn yen ($2.7bn) this fiscal year. That forecast, given on Thursday, is about 20% less than analysts projected as Sony tries to shake its years-long reputation for disappointing investors. Hirai is cutting costs and focusing on profitability in businesses where Sony has an advantage. That approach, coupled with Chief Financial Officer Kenichiro Yoshida’s emphasis on accountability, has helped boost the stock 103% in the past year. “We have revised our forecasts down 15 times in the past seven years, and that’s not something we want to repeat,” Yoshida said in Tokyo. “The profit forecast takes into account a considerable risk from foreign exchange fluctuations.”

The number of utility patents (for invention rather than design) handed out by the United States Patent and Trademark Office rose to over 300,000 last year, a record high. Tech firms that are awarded these patients can expect to enjoy significant R&D investment. So which companies are winning the most patents? This list from Fortune of the top eight patent-earning companies has IBM at the top of the pile, with Samsung in second. Google is the biggest surprise, in that its ascendancy onto the list seems to have come from nowhere.

    Investors keeping watch on Apple's wearable gamble

    Business Spectator
    Smartwatches powered by Android haven't taken the market by storm. So is wearable technology worthy of serious investor attention? Moreover the Apple device won't yet have the health tracking technology that was originally planned either. So this Apple move looks like a gamble. But unlike those of its rivals – Samsung, Sony and LG Electronics – the Apple ecosystem is robust. Consumers should feel comfortable enough to try out an Apple watch. Apple is expected to sell 11.8 million watches this year, making it the market leader in wearables. As a fashion accessory, the Apple Watch will set the tone and with features like Apple Pay and the ability to glean information without having to take out your phone, Apple will give its fans enough of a taste to make them pine for the next model.
