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
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.
David Pogue picks some of the more interesting iPod accessories unveiled at this year's Macworld.
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.
Just some quick thoughts on what started out as a brutal morning, but is "coming back" a little thanks to the Fed's must-do move minutes ago: I heard from many of you over the weekend, and the tone was a little surprising.
At Intel and Advanced Micro Devices, which together own the market for computer microprocessors, their chief executives had one message for investors this week: "What, me worry?"
Apple Inc.'s earnings are always a big-time financial event, but this time, the company's numbers will be followed more closely than ever before. Why? Worries about a recession, concerns over a lackluster holiday shopping season, insecurity about how the company's products are selling.
It's not often that I'm thrown for a loop when a company reports earnings. But when the headline number from Advanced Micro Devices crossed the wires as a loss of $3.06 a share, my eyes nearly popped. Where's the charge coming from? What's the problem here? What did we all miss?
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.
What a crazy day for Apple Inc., Macworld attendees, and me. Still trying to get the feeling back in my thumbs after live-blogging, via Blackberry, during the keynote. I really hope you found that useful.
Intel posted fourth-quarter results and a first-quarter outlook behind Wall Street targets, sending its shares down about 15 percent.
WiMAX, loosely described as “WiFi on steroids,” is finally ready for its close up.
