There have been a lot of interesting earnings reports this week. Ford had a very positive report as did Apple. Do you remember when Ford had a 5%+ dividend yield? I can barely remember such a time (think 2006). I was surprised to hear Panera guide down for the rest of 2013. And of course Facebook earnings (beating expectations) were out last night which are always a fun source of entertainment. Mobile ad revenue was way up for Facebook which I find interesting.
