    Taiwan's Foxconn, the world's largest contract electronics maker and a key Apple supplier, posted a 14.5% fall in first-quarter net profit on Monday, lagging estimates despite a strong quarter for the US iPhone maker.
    Net profit for the first three months of 2018 for the company known formally as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co reached T$24.08 billion ($809 million), the company said in a filing to the Taiwan stock exchange.
    That was down 14.5% from T$28.168 billion a year earlier, according to Reuters' calculations. The first-quarter result was also lower than an average estimate of T$28.71 billion from nine analysts, Thomson Reuters data showed.
    In May, Apple reported resilient iPhone sales in quarterly results that topped Wall Street forecasts.
