Apple reports their quarterly performance today after the markets close. They’re supposed to outperform expectations (after their stock “adjusted downwards” 40% after forecasting a poor quarter earlier this year). But Steve at Marketing Apple has an interesting observation to make:

if Apple had underperformed it would announce its earnings on a Friday (to let the market cool down over the weekend.) If it had over-performed, it would announce on a Thursday (to allow the market to run up the stock price.) So what does announcing on a Wednesday tell us?

As I said, Hmmm. Cautiously optimistic.

    I think Jobs does not want stock moving wildly in either direction due to speculation associated w/ the announcement date.

    Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I’ve been paying more attention to politics lately, but my focus is always on the environment and how important it is. I know Earth Day has already passed us by, but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part.

    I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that EarthLab.com is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April?… I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips.

    I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.
