Microsoft--the world's largest software maker--got a whole lot larger at the end of 2007; the company blowing past Wall Street expectations, and offering up optimistic guidance that could go a long way toward buoying beleaguered equity markets around the world.
If you haven't seen the video circulating the web showing Tom Cruise talking about Scientology, well, it's still on YouTube, despite reported efforts by the church to have it taken down:
Microsoft's earnings may be the most anticipated report from the tech sector, and possibly the most anticipated report during the earnings season, and here's why: The company is just as big a deal in this country as it is in Europe, Asia, emerging markets.
This morning, in response to a question from one of our anchors, I said that the bulk of foreclosed homes are not included in the existing home sales report from the National Association of Realtors because they don’t land on the MLS.
Qualcomm posted a higher first-quarter profit after items, due to demand for its mobile phone chips, and its shares rose as much as 7.43 percent following the report. The wireless technology and chip supplier also gave a forecast for the current quarter that was in line with analysts' expectations.
It could've been much worse, especially in the crazy climate we're seeing on Wall Street. On the day the company announces CEO Meg Whitman's retirement, on a day when there was so much optimism about eBay's fourth quarter earnings, and on a day when the Street finally began to turn things around, eBay beats earnings expectations on the top and bottom lines
EBay reported earnings and sales that beat analysts' forecasts, but the company's guidance was below market expectations.
I was going to hold off on a Google earnings preview since it's more than a week away, but after watching the company's shares fall, and fall, and fall some more, it seems like today is a better day to do it.
This is the LIVE blog from Tuesday's Apple earnings conference call. Read it for the first time or re-read again. I had fun doing it and I hope you enjoy reading it.
eBay is one of the net's four horsemen, ushering in a spate of online earnings after the bell today, and coming a week ahead of Yahoo (next Tuesday); Amazon (next Wednesday); and Google (next Thursday.) So eBay's earnings will put the entire sector under the spotlight.
Texas Instruments reports after the bell, and the company will be forced into Apple Inc.'s shadow, which might be a shame. That's because this company could offer up some surprisingly good news, both in wireless and in flat TV's.
Yahoo is planning to lay off hundreds of employees in an effort to increase its profitability, prop up its deflated stock price and narrow the focus of its sprawling Internet portal to a smaller number of crucial areas, people close to the company said Monday.
With O.J. Simpson back in the news, a colleague of mine at NBC was regaling newbie newsies about the long national nightmare of the ‘90s known as the “Simpson saga.” Some of these young journalists were (gulp) in elementary school at the time, and my friend was trying to explain to them just HOW BIG A DEAL IT WAS.
Google shares continue to slide, and this is getting ugly. The question investors and the Street are asking is how low these shares can go? The Google chart is as ugly as it's ever been. No real surprise in some respects since many of the biggest names in big-cap tech have been torpedoed along with the rest of the market.

Ouch. There's really no other way to summarize Intel's earnings, and there's little question that Intel's softness took Wall Street by surprise. Just look at the shellacking these shares are taking today. But is the selloff warranted, or -- like so many other moves to the downside in recent weeks among the top names in tech -- is the Intel drubbing overdone?
