samsung earnings 2014

Korean handset maker Samsung revealed April-June as its worst quarter in the last two years. This is the first quarter in the last two years that the company has posted such a p in earnings. Operating profit fell 24.6 per cent annually to 7.2 trillion won ($7.03 billion), suggesting uncertain earnings predictions, especially in terms of its handset business.
