    Curious to see what the Macbook adds to the bottom line!

    Most say it will be a much softer report than the past few quarters. I can't wait to see. Q4 should be strong though, I hope.

    The forward looking part will be most interesting since it might shed a light on the new MacPro,Xserve and what Apple thinks will push sales.

    Do you think they'll talk about the sweatshop and stock options controversies?

    As a shareholder, do I have any special benefits as far as listening in to the speech?

    People will probably ask questions about the factory conditions and stock option controversies. Apple will probably reply with a stock answer like "Apple is a quality company. We are looking into the issue and doing everything we can to ensure that we are well within all legal regulations."

    As a shareholder (or anyone else), you're better off waiting for a recap of the highlights to be posted on this site or AppleInsider, as the conference call is long, drawn out, and kind of boring.

    Here is some advice to would be Apple stock owners, buy stock after the Quarter results come out. Apple always goes down when they come out! Get it cheap!

    I've been holding onto my stock. I'd be satisfied to break even, but really happy if it takes off like some analysts have said. With my profits I was planning to buy a Macbook or something like that, but lately I have been wanting to replace my bedroom carpet. I think bedroom flooring is more important in the long run as I already have a working computer.

    This is off topic, but do you think it's bad to stare at a CRT for a long period each day, in terms of your eyes (or any other concerns)? That and the noise issue of my eMac are some of the big reasons I'd like a Macbook.

    Who says?

    Where did you get that info on AAPL always falling after earnings?
    I would think that with the way the stock has already been hit it can only go up from here. I bet they have pretty good (not earth shattering like before) earnings with higher forecasts for next quarter and that with all the low expectations for earnings the stock will react quite favorably. :)

    There is no valid reason for the stock to be this low.:confused:

    Just my $0.02;)

    I think the stock is just about right given the x86 transition that is taking place and the various iPod/iTMS related legal issues (Creative, France, etc.).

    Anyway the P/E ratio is something sensible now and I expect the stock price to grow as Apple comes out of the x86 transition because I expect increase in unit volumes going forward... which will increase earnings per share.

    Ya, I would like to buy some more if it goes down tomorrow. Last batch I bought was at $36. I think it will be $80++ by next year for sure.

    I think it'll continue to drift for a while...I'd guess a bit of a dip after the earnings come out, but not too much. There just isn't any forward momentum for the stock right now. So much of the big run-up was due to the iPod hype, and that part of the business is in a holding pattern for now. I don't see anything major happening until there's big news (bigger than just a boost in nano storage) on the iPod front.

    I have a feeling that Apple could announce a record-breaking quarter. If this happens, look for their stock to immediately dip, but then begin to rise throughout the coming weeks.

    The market is so fickle. If they announce a record quarter, the market will say "well, it can't get any better", and will try to bail. But then they will realize once again that Apple has more life in it than they initially thought, so the stock will rebound.

    well, according to my mom's book about ways to live to 100, CRT's give off radiation that can kill braincells and give you skin cancer:eek:

    News Flash: Apple now makes computers!

    Don't you realize that people have been waiting and saving up money for the new MacBook/Pro computers. If they gain two more percent market share this year it would be a huge accomplishment, I think that they can get more than that. There will be a record number of units sold (just like the iPod had) and growth will be projected higher.

    Most importantly Apple makes a lot more money off Computers than they do with iPods. Not to mention all the accessories that they can sell with them.

    It's not big news though...people used to buy PowerBooks and now they buy MBPs. Sales will be good, probably even higher than projections, but it's hype that drives the stock prices to the levels it was at. That hype just isn't there right now...

    It doesn't matter how well you do if you don't meet expectations, no matter how unrealistic those expectations may be. And Apple has been saddled with some pretty unrealistic expectations recently.

    From past observations. AAPL stock has ( mostly ) always fallen after a quartertly announcement.

    Tech shares around the world have fallen recently. Apple are not immune. Also down due to the factory condition story, and "quality issues".

    My prediction:
    I don't think apple will be breaking any records this time around. iPod sales will be down and under estimate. Computer sales, a bit higher than pevious quarter.

    ...yes, it's bad; i did it for years and now i can feel the fatigue when i try again...

    it's not insanely bad, but it's certainly not healthy to do it everyday for long periods

    As for the stock price, I picked up just a little stock recently, as much to help me rationalize looking at Mac forums all the time as anything else. I feel that I either got in in time for the long ride down from days of iPod exuberance, or for the brilliant next act. Who can say?

    It makes me realize that though I've always actually enjoyed Apple's fierce secrecy, as someone who now has a small amount of money at stake in the company, it is a little nerve-wracking.

    Well, here's to whatever's waiting in the wings --

    There will be new hype when people start imagining where the Mac market share can go. If apple increases their market share by 25% in one quarter [which is about .5% of the market] then people will start imagining exponential growth... which I think is quite likely.

    Macs are not going to take over the PC anytime soon. But they can take a nice chunk of the market. (I can see them having 20% in 5 years)

    You heard it hear first!

    As you all know, the price of AAPL has been falling to a more realistic level in the past few months. If you purchased a few months ago, sorry, but if you are thinking about buying soon, I think AAPL is only going to be going up...unless one or both of two things happen: 1) The situation in the Middle East balloons to economically destructive levels causing a market panic making, in the short term, any Apple Corporation performance irrelevant; and 2) No new iPods are released before October causing Wallstreet to cross out Apple as being able to capitolize on the Holiday shopping season because, obviously, the iPod is the only thing that matters in the financial universe.

    What would I do? I'd wait until after the Wednesday earnings report, let the stock go down 3-5 points, let Friday's typical sell-off happen, and buy $45 AAPL at the end of the day Friday or early on Monday expecting the stock to rise 10 points in the next two weeks before WWDC. Then sell unless an iPod is released and Isreal is no longer acting like a global tyrantial bastard. If an iPod is released and the Middle East cools down, stay through MWSF...THEN SELL!!!!

    But definitely buy on Monday. Remember, you heard it hear first!
