Net Loss

The company reported a net loss of $712 million, or 86 cents per share, compared to net income of $8.5 billion, or $9.89 per share, last year. Excluding special items, earnings were $649 million, or 78 cents per share – above analysts’ view of 77 cents per share.

Revenue
Revenue came in at $9.65 billion, up from $9.08 billion a year ago. Analysts expected to see revenue of $9.57 billion.
