- CSX, expectation, 49 cents: CSX reported fourth quarter earnings per share of $0.49, up 17% from $0.42 in the same period last year. This represents a new fourth quarter record for the Company.

- AAPL -- Actual: crushes expectations. See this link. Earlier: Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may boost Apple's iPhone sales to a new
record in the company's year-ending Q1 2015 quarter, says Morgan Stanley
analyst Katy Huberty in a recent investor note. In line with other
analyst predictions, Huberty and her team expect iPhone sales in the
December holiday quarter to reach as high as 69 million units, eclipsing
last year's quarterly record of 51 million units sold in Q1 2014.
Huberty also predicts strong Mac sales based on IDC's estimate of 5.8 million units, well above Morgan Stanley's earlier estimate of 5.2 million units and exceeding the record-setting 5.5 million Macs the company sold in fiscal Q4 2014. While the iPhone and Mac climb, iPad demand year-over-year is expected to remain weak with 22 million units shipped in Q1 2015, down slightly from the 26 million sold in the same quarter of 2014. [For folks unfamiliar with iPads: they last "forever."]
