  • Amazon's Tall Order: Pleasing Investors Wednesday, 23 Apr 2008 | 11:27 AM ET

    Amazon shares started last quarter right at $100 a share, and since then, it's been all downhill from there. Frustrated investors will be looking for guidance from the company later today that the slide is over, and that the company is poised for a strong, back half of 2008. But that's a tall order for Amazon's executives.

  • Apple Investors Talk Back: 'On Target' or 'Garbage'? Wednesday, 23 Apr 2008 | 10:11 AM ET

    Hours away from Apple's earnings, as you might expect, investors are a little nervous -- with a stock going from $119 to just short of $170, and then back to $160 in a matter of weeks. Some of you have written in with your thoughts ahead of earnings. Here's a sampling...

  • Yahoo Seems Strong -- But Outlook Remains the Same Tuesday, 22 Apr 2008 | 5:23 PM ET

    Looking at Yahoo's first quarter earnings, you gotta wonder why this company can report so strongly, and what magic bullet it employed during the quarter that apparently eluded management over the past two years.

  • Whipsawed Apple Investors Prep for Earnings Tuesday, 22 Apr 2008 | 1:31 PM ET

    Normally, I'll put together a formal earnings preview the day the company is set to announce, but in the case of Apple, there has been so much interest so far ahead of these numbers that I thought I'd do it today instead, and run some of your emails about all this tomorrow.

  • M&A Game: Yahoo, Show Your Cards Tuesday, 22 Apr 2008 | 11:06 AM ET
    Yahoo!'s headquarters in California.

    There's about $41 billion in chips on the table, all the cards have been dealt in the Yahoo vs. Microsoft poker match -- and today is the day Microsoft and investors get to "call." (Google and News Corp. look on...)

  • Shhhhh, Whisper Number Volume Getting Loud Monday, 21 Apr 2008 | 2:13 PM ET

    Whisper numbers are a weird animal on Wall Street, especially when you're talking high profile earnings reports like Google, Apple, Yahoo, Microsoft, Intel and so many others.

  • Texas Instruments is playing a strange game of financial limbo as the company prepares to report its first quarter earnings later today. On the one hand, significantly lower expectations, thanks to TI's own guidance warning last month, could help the company breeze under the bar.

  • Web Metrics and Grains of Salt Monday, 21 Apr 2008 | 10:28 AM ET

    ComScore's wildly off-the-mark prediction on Google's first quarter click growth shows how difficult measuring Web traffic can be.

  • A Web Shift in the Way Advertisers Seek Clicks Monday, 21 Apr 2008 | 9:53 AM ET

  • Google's comScore Conundrum Friday, 18 Apr 2008 | 2:20 PM ET
    Google Headquarters

    Sell first and ask questions later -- this has characterized trading in Google stock since January, and the biggest problem for Google and its investors has been coming from market research firm comScore. But how reliable is comScore research, anyway?

  • After a week like this one, the pressure's on the next batch of tech stars to beat the Street and keep this momentum going, with investors turning their attention to Yahoo, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon, all set to report earnings next week.

  • IBM Blows Way Past Street Expectations--Way Past Wednesday, 16 Apr 2008 | 4:44 PM ET

    Big Blue is looking more like Big Green in after-market trading following the company's blockbuster first quarter earnings report, and the surprise increase in its full year guidance. IBM blew past Wall Street expectations, reporting $1.65 a share on $24.5 billion in revenue; both categories way above consensus of $1.45 and $23.711 billion respectively.

  • If investors were steeling themselves for weak tech earnings, they got to exhale in a big way following Intel's optimistic outlook on Tuesday. And if Intel isn't seeing any domestic or global business slowdown, as the company's chief financial officer Stacy Smith told me following the earnings news, it stands to reason that IBM might be in a very good position to sound...

  • Intel's Earnings Set A Pretty Good Tone Of Optimism Tuesday, 15 Apr 2008 | 4:57 PM ET

  • Talk about a great couple of days last week: Wednesday into Wednesday night, I get to hang out with Bon Jovi during their Silicon Valley visit for a story on the technology the band uses in its show.

  • Intel: As Long As Numbers Add Up, Worst May Be Behind Tuesday, 15 Apr 2008 | 10:39 AM ET
    Intel's headquarters in Santa Clara, California.

    With Intel, the bad news is already baked in, and that's leading many analysts to expect good things from the company at the close today. Funny how when a company lowers its own expectations, and is now expected to at least meet them that it translates into "good news" for Wall Street.

    I knew that headline would catch your attention, and it should when you're trying to figure out the vagaries of Yahoo and its dealings with Microsoft, Time-Warner, News Corp. and any of the other suitors, or vultures, out there trying to become part of the company's future.
