    1. The old saying “Buy on rumour and sell on news.” will apply unfortunately. AAPL has risen sharply this past week and has taken the expected rise we might think is reasonable already. The ‘smart’ money will sell hard after Apple announces record earnings, record iPhone sales, tremendous increase in ‘other’ categories, a market leading increase in Mac sales and a decrease in iPod sales.

      Expect the stock to drop about 2% this evening. It doesn’t seem fair or reasonable to the vast majority of people but that is what I predict.

      1. Reasonable guess based on past performance. No matter how good Apple’s quarterly results turn out to be, the nagging question (fair or not) is always, “When is the Apple revenue/profit train going to derail?”

    If earnings grow 41% YOY, that would surely result in a big jump in stock price for any other company. That growth in dollar terms (12B) is 70% of Google’s total earnings.
