Has Carl Icahn put Apple CEO Tim Cook in a box in regards to the buyback? Brian Marshall of ISI Group, shares his opinions.» Read More
Has the long, national nightmare for Apple investors finally come to an end? After reading comments from Apple chief operating officer Tim Cook addressing the crowd at the Goldman Sachs tech conference in Las Vegas yesterday, it appears so. And not a moment too soon for the Mac faithful.
Needless to say, my posts on Google and Apple are generating a flood of response from many of you feeling the frustration of these steep declines, so in the vein of "misery loves company," here's a taste of some of your missives. Rest assured, if you're confused, you're not alone -- so are the experts.
Last post I focused on Google, but much of the same fear and frustration swirling around those shares can be said of Apple as well, another of last year's high-flyers that have come crashing back down to earth.
The U.S. telecommunications industry will grow at a slower rate than the global industry in the coming years as the wireless and wired markets mature, the Telecommunications Industry Association said Friday.
No. 3 U.S. mobile-service provider Sprint Nextel is expected to offer flat-rate calling plans at up to a 40 percent discount to its rivals, hurtling the industry into a price war, analysts said on Wednesday.
I'm writing from the road this week, taking some time off to attend legendary coach Chris Carmichael's cycling training camp in Buellton, Calif. The camp takes place at the same time as the huge Amgen Tour of California pro cycling race, and both are boasting their fair share of some pretty spectacular technology. Carmichael made a name for himself training Lance Armstrong...
Here we are still in February, and there's already a healthy amount of speculation about Apple's earnings. And when they are released in April, they could hold some surprising news -- thanks in part to China's giant market.
BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion and rival Motorola have sued each other over what they say are patent infringements for technology used in their mobile phones.
Research in Motion appears to be suffering from growing pains and while strong sales are usually good news for a company, they could become cataclysmic if the company can't handle the additions.
Sprint Nextel has appointed to its board activist investor Ralph Whitworth, who last year threatened a proxy battle against the No. 3 U.S. mobile service provider.
Apple Inc. as a "value play?" Seems counter-intuitive to think of a company trading at better than 20 times next year's earnings as a "value," but maybe--just maybe--the Street is coming around to the idea that the growth and potential of this company seem horribly undervalued.
In the past, there has been an almost even split between handsets and operators at the annual Barcelona event. But maybe because of the much-needed upgrades from the operators, handsets rule this year -- with only Apple absent.
The head of the mobile phone unit at Samsung Electronics ruled out acquiring Motorola's handset business, saying Samsung has little to gain from the combination, Yonhap Newsreported on Tuesday.
A major service outage afflicted users of the popular, addictive BlackBerry smart phones across the United States and Canada on Monday.
It is a "CrackBerry" addict's worst nightmare: a catastrophic outage affecting the company's entire network in the Americas. In an e-mail to its enterprise clients, Research in Motion says it has suffered a "critical severity outage" --and the company as of yet is providing no details as to when the network will be back up and running.
Apple investors have to be scratching their heads wondering when the great story of 2007 will return to 2008. Or if it will at all. The latest grenade lobbed into the Apple tent comes from Friedman Billings Ramsey, purporting to show that Apple has reduced production of its iPod, iPhone and Mac.
The news from Cisco was a kind of Goldilocks earnings report...a small upside surprise on the topline to the tune of $30 million: $9.83 billion instead of the consensus of $9.8 billion the Street was looking for. Until the guidance. Ouch.
Just a few hours to go now before Cisco reports and to say there's a nervous tension on Wall Street right now anticipating the news is a deep understatement. It's palpable. I've spent a chunk of the morning calling investors and culling reaction: "nervous" comes up a lot.
Can you think of anything more annoying than getting an ad on your cell phone? And what if you get an ad when you are just walking down the street minding your own business, and happen to pass a particular store?
If guidance and outlook have been the Achilles' heels of so many great-earnings-reports-gone-bad this earnings season, then the grand-daddy of them all could come at the close Wednesday when Cisco Systems reports its earnings.
