Piper Jaffray raises Apple estimates on Mac OS X ‘Tiger’ release news

“Piper Jaffray said that based on the announcement of the next Macintosh operating system from Apple Computer will boost revenue for the fiscal third quarter ending June.

  1. Yeh-hessssss. It’s just . . . amazing. I mean, to think that the revenue for Apple will actually increase with the release of Tiger! My oh myyyyy!

    Why it’s . . . it’s . . . BRILLIANT!!!

    Of course, I used to be an analyst once, too. But then I quit — I figured I’d rather do something that didn’t require me to suck!!!

  2. I think we hear far too much from analysts and financial projectionists.

    I don’t care what analysts say, I really dont. they are reactionary “Apple releases new iPod! They are gonna do well” vs “It’s been a while since we had a new iPod, looks like Apple is in trouble”.

    It’s all meaningless, how do these people make money?
