    Google shares might not reflect the level of optimism swirling around this company right now, but this could be a break-out earnings report from Google after the bell later today.

  • Intel Blows Past Earnings Again--So Why..? Tuesday, 15 Jul 2008 | 5:46 PM ET
    Intel

    This was a big quarter for Intel, no matter how you slice. But while shares soared the moment this earnings news crossed the wires, as they did last quarter, they quickly settled back. Again. As Wall Street worries about computer industry sluggishness. Again. Even though Intel isn't seeing that. Again.

  • Intel On Earnings Deck: It's Laptops, Laptops, Laptops Tuesday, 15 Jul 2008 | 11:49 AM ET

    Dow component Intel reports earnings after the bell later today, and while I touched on expectations yesterday, I want to go a little deeper today, especially with a market like this one.

  • Microsoft/Yahoo: Why Can't This Deal Get Done? Monday, 14 Jul 2008 | 3:19 PM ET

    It's getting nasty now. And all indications are this is going to come down to a nasty fight and long day at the Yahoo shareholders meeting Aug. 1. By now, you've seen the coverage of last week's last minute wrangling between Carl Icahn, negotiating apparently as a kind of proxy for Microsoft's Steve Ballmer.

    Alcoa may have kicked off earnings season last week, but this week, the biggest names in the tech sector take center stage: Intel and IBM tomorrow: eBay Wednesday; Microsoft and Google on Thursday.

  • Apple's iPhone Sales: Good But Is That Good Enough? Monday, 14 Jul 2008 | 8:57 AM ET
    Apple iPhone

    Iphone's first weekend is in the books and while three days of sales hardly determines the entire story, it is an important "split time" that Apple investors should consider. Piper Jaffray concluded its channel checks late Sunday and determined that Apple and AT&T spacersold 425,000 iPhones this weekend:

  • Apple App Store Could Rival iTunes As Revenue Source Wednesday, 9 Jul 2008 | 9:49 AM ET

    Let me focus on something that deserves a lot more attention: the upcoming Apple App Store, a new online Apple store that will post and sell third party software applications. And, if you believe iPhone's sales projections in the coming years, App could match or rival iTunes as a revenue stream down the road.

  • Apple's "Second Coming" Tuesday, 8 Jul 2008 | 12:54 AM ET

    Just days away now from the release of Apple's next generation iPhone, the so-called iPhone 3G.  And if the first one was dubbed the "Jesus Phone" because of the overwhelming hype, hope and promise of that device, then this new one is quite literally iPhone's Second Coming.

    The plot thickens, the noose tightens, and when it comes to Yahoo and Microsoft, the "Little Merger That Couldn't," shareholders this morning, trying to climb this hill, are probably saying "I think 'I-cahn, I think 'I-cahn.'"

  • Still No Deal For Yahoo--Period Wednesday, 2 Jul 2008 | 10:16 AM ET
    Yahoo_headquarters_HQ.jpg

    I'll say from the outset that I have great respect for the Wall Street Journal. But I, along with a number of folks following the Yahoo/Microsoft will-they-or-won't-they drama are wondering what the point is of today's splashy, front-page tome purporting to break new ground about a new deal to grab a chunk of the company.

  • Bill Gates

    Today's the day. Well sort of. Bill Gates will retire from Microsoft, kind of. He's leaving the day-to-day responsibilities to others. But not really.

  • Bill Gates Doesn't Think Yahoo Deal Is Likely Friday, 27 Jun 2008 | 7:53 AM ET
    Bill Gates

    Microsoft's Bill Gates told NBC's Tom Brokaw he does not think a deal with Yahoo was likely, CNBC reported on Friday.

  • One Small Step for Intel; Giant Leap for Apple? Thursday, 26 Jun 2008 | 12:26 PM ET

    This might be more a leap of faith, but it's a leap worth considering for both Intel and Apple, especially after the blogs have been awash this week about speculation over Intel's resistance to upgrade 80,000 employee computers to Microsoft's Vista.

  • Oracle Traders Giveth, Taketh Away Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 8:12 PM ET
    Oracle's headquarters in Redwood City, California.

    Easy come, easy go, I suppose, when it comes to Oracle.  The company barely had enough time to finish that first glass of champagne, celebrating a great fourth quarter when gloomy guidance cut the party short.

  • Oracle Tops Forecasts; License Growth to Weaken Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 6:01 PM ET

    Oracle the world's third-largest software maker, reported a higher quarterly profit, beating Wall Street estimates, but it sees software license revenue growth weakening.

  • oracle_earnings.jpg

    You look at Oracle, you see a company at nearly a 7-year-high, and you wonder whether the company was over-bought, and whether investors were getting a little ahead of themselves. Nope.

  • RIM Misses But Will Cooler Heads Prevail On Stock? Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 4:34 PM ET

    After the build-up and the hype, and the enormous amount of optimism surrounding Research in Motion shares, the company can't beat the buzzer and stock gets popped.

  • Oracle Becomes Macro "Oracle" For Economy Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 10:28 AM ET
    Oracle's headquarters in Redwood City, California.

    Oracle ended 2007 as the software stock pick of the year for a few key analysts on the Street for 2008, and today we'll get a good idea as to whether those optimistic outlooks are still justified. Just about everyone I've talked to expects Oracle to beat expectations, so it doesn't seem like a question of "if," but instead, "by how much."

  • RIM On Earnings Deck: Set to Soar? Tuesday, 24 Jun 2008 | 12:01 PM ET

    Research in Motion will release earnings on Wednesday, and there's a fair amount of optimism swirling around these shares, even in the face of ever increasing competition and headlines from Apple and the iPhone.
