IBM on Thursday forecast 2008 earnings well ahead of Wall Street expectations after results showing a strong international performance, and its shares jumped 5 percent.
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.
New York Times tech columnist David Pogue reviews the four big developments from this year's Macworld.
I heard a new term the other day. You're probably familiar with it, but it was new to me: Hot Money. It's a reflection of the new kind of market dynamics we're all seeing lately, and the best, fresh example of "hot money" is Advanced Micro Devices.
Seems I struck a nerve with some Intel investors reading this morning's post on the company's steep decline following yesterday's earnings. Here's a taste: Bill Jameson writes, "Felt the same way. Nice report."
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?
Intel shares took a nosedive Wednesday after the chip maker posted fourth-quarter results and a first-quarter outlook behind Wall Street targets.

Analysts polled by Thomson Financial expect Intel to report profits of 40 cents a share on sales of $10.84 billion after markets close Thursday.
It's either an incredibly elaborate hoax or Apple Inc.'s CEO Steve Jobs is one unhappy camper this morning: It appears notes for his highly anticipated Macworld keynote address may have been leaked onto the internet last night, posting on the popular online encyclopedia web site Wikipedia.
Consumers should expect new mobility and movie options. Investors may want to look to the Apple orchard.
When it comes to Apple Inc. and Wall Street, I don't get it. These last few weeks have seen a precipitous decline in Apple shares, from a high right near $203 to a low of $171. The fall in Apple shares follows a general downdraft in all kinds of tech, yet many experts both in and outside the company I'm talking to have continued to harp on the "fundamentals" that got Apple to those lofty heights to begin with.
You knew it was coming simply because we all know that stocks, particularly tech stocks, don't move in only one direction despite what we've seen since Jan. 1. It took a stunning IBM pre-announcement to get the ball rolling, and that ball is rolling, fast.
Do I have your attention? Here's my video on why the adult video industry is keeping America great!! Really you say? Take a look.
It's the Friday before Macworld and once again, tongues are wagging about what Steve Jobs will pull out of his jeans pocket; what he might have lurking up his trademarked black sleeve; whether he can offer up something to pump some life back into this sagging stock.
