If Apple Was Gong To Miss Like These Analysts Are Saying..
Actually, no. A company has no obligation to pre-announce, good or bad, unless in accordance with Reg FD they learn that the results have been leaked out inappropriately. Then, they must announce with 24 hours. And, I am not aware of AAPL ever pre-announcing. And, the majority of analysts seem to expect a very solid quarter. The concern seems to be around guidance for the next quarter.
