Market Preview: One Bad Apple

Category : Business

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — One bad Apple. That’s all it takes to spoil what was already a pretty spotty earnings season.

The iconic gadget maker missed the consensus view for its quarterly results late Tuesday; rather badly if truth be told. The company cited a slowing global economy on its conference call, namely Europe, and that’s sure to cast a major pall over tomorrow’s trading.

But there’s also an argument to be made that Wall Street is simply expecting too much of the company. After all, Apple’s own outlook was for earnings of $8.68 a share in its fiscal third quarter on revenue of roughly $34 billion, so it did fine by that measure.

Category : Business

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — He’s baaaaack! No, I’m not talking about a zombie in a scary movie or Mitt Romney’s future press secretary, Newt Gingrich.

I’m talking about Google selling unlocked Android phones directly again, bypassing the cellular carriers.

Those of you with decent smartphone memories will recall that Google
jumped into this strategy once before, in January 2010, with the Nexus
One.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Another round of quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve may not be off the table completely but the second-quarter timeframe that many market watchers were predicting at the start of the year doesn’t seem realistic anymore.

Paul Ashworth, an analyst at Capital Economics, broke down the situation in commentary on Wednesday, saying the economic data just isn’t supportive of the central bank signing up for more bond buying when Operation Twist conks out at the end of June.

3 Tech Rebound Stocks for 2012

Category : Business, Stocks

NEW YORK. (TheStreet) — Everyone loves triumph in the face of adversity (as evidenced by the ‘Lin-sanity’ currently gripping the nation) so it’s hardly surprising that investors are enjoying the tech sector’s rebound after a moribund 2011.

In particular, the turnarounds at NetApp, Microsoft and Seagate, are worthy of investor attention as the companies gear up for a much improved 2012.

NetApp is one of the tech stocks rebounding in 2012

“NetApp is on track to get its mojo back,” explained Brian Marshall, an analyst at ISI Group, in a note, pointing to the storage specialist’s solid third-quarter results last week. “NetApp illustrated the resiliency of its business this quarter and we believe it remains well-positioned to deliver solid growth over the next several years.”
