  • Apple Earnings Preview: Up, Up And Away [View article]
    That lawsuit would probably be thrown out in a second. Analysts aren't trying to force a miss, they just believe that Apple's guidance was conservative and that actual results will be better.

  • Apple Earnings Preview: Up, Up And Away [View article]
    Well, because Apple is based in CA, the earnings report still seems to be on for tomorrow. UTX changed its call to today, but that's because the company's headquarters is in the blizzard zone.

    Even if the market is closed, I think Apple could still report. Since the stock is usually halted during/shortly after the report, there isn't much difference if the market is closed. The stock would just re-open for trading Wednesday morning, instead of say 4:50 PM Tuesday afternoon.

    I didn't want to go too high with my iPhone predictions. As for the iPad, if the mini is hurt by the iPhone, it will help ASPs.

    It wasn't Provenge as much as bad management and poor marketing.

    It's a discussion of material with links.

    If what he said wasn't concerning, why did shares drop to $185?

    Also, the EPS change is over time, as shown in the table.

    You do realize the article was tagged as long ideas, right?

    And yes, 2015 estimates are at a NEW LOW. A few pennies here and there doesn't seem like much, but why have we gone from almost $4 to under $3 while revenue estimates are soaring?

    There is a problem there...

  • Intel's Report Leaves A Slightly Sour Taste [View article]
    Nobody said anything about a disastrous quarter. You're exaggerations are out of control at this point. Perhaps you need to go back and read things over again, cause you don't have a clue what you are talking about.

    Well of course with the Dow up 250 it seems logical that KO will be up. But if this forces another few pennies out of guidance, those gains will be short-lived when the report comes in.

    Dollar index spiking again this morning on Euro QE. Will only hurt the company even more.

  • Netflix: Playing The Long Game [View article]
    Unless something dramatic happens, it probably will be a number of years before DVD hits loss territory. By that time, a few hundred thousand subs will be a decimal point of Netflix's total, especially with all of this international expansion in the next two years.

  • Apple: Examining The iPad Issue [View article]
    While that may be true, it's not a valid comparison to do a $500 ipad versus a $99 cheapo tablet. Apple makes money on its hardware, while others are taking gigantic losses (MSFT, AMZN, etc.).
