damn...I remember that statement clearly! I also will never forget his preannouncement at 1:30 AM with a 6 cent miss! What a shmuck I've put up with for all these years.
Damn straight! Rubin has been showing his cards at numerous presentations. He clearly knows the results but can't claim success until it is 100% complete. I'm never right in my speculations on anything though:(
RR may not be able to confirm but he would be in a heap of trouble if he does not divulge that NUAN is NOT running Siri. Imagine where we would go if he sent out a PR stating that Apple dumped NUAN. If we never know, then we're in...JMO
RR does it again! He spoils the party every time. Imagine reporting these #'s after the close on the 6th! So 5 minutes before the preannouncement, they send out a PR stating ER will be after the close on the 6th. Then they immediately preannounce? They brag about how well Tom and Dan have performed since 2008? Really? Tom just got a significant raise last year and now he's leaving? RR just got an extension and Tom decides to go to work for a small private company? This preannouncement makes no sense to me especially whenthey re supposedly buying back stock. They could have waited until Apple and Msft reported to see if a Nasdaq haircut was in the offing and use that weakness to get a buyback bargain knowing earnings were going to be better than expected. So again, any rally is thwarted by Ricci once again.
