We'll see how things go leading up to the next report. Past reports have not gone well recently, especially the last one. Probably see some speculative buying leading up to the report followed by another big drop unless they can positively surprise.
Apple will not miss its numbers this quarter..... Sales and profits will come at the low end of Apples's guidance ,with margins a bit better, and Eps a bit higher due to less shares outstanding.... .. Increase in macs sales and iTunes will help the margin and eps. Forward sales guidance may be a bit light..... But margin projection should be OK.
The last report was bad? Over 54 billion in Rev with 13 weeks in Q instead of 14 weeks like 2011...and missing by 238million is Bad? The Market and Analysts made it bad to serve their institutions purpose of dropping the stock 60 points plus.
No doubt Apple needs to meet and beat numbers but it might be hard need some good news and a spark.
