SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Among the companies whose shares are expected to see active trade in Tuesday's session are Apple Inc., Netflix Inc., and Texas Instruments Inc.
Apple(AAPL) is hosting a media event at 1 p.m. Eastern in San Francisco where it is widely expected to announce new versions of the iPad and iPad mini. "We still have a lot to cover," said the invitation sent out to the press. "This gathering has been widely discussed in the media as an iPad-focused event, and our research during our recent trip to China supports this notion. We believe this will be the most important refresh of the iPad franchise for Apple since the first iPad went on sale on April 4, 2010," Brian White, an analyst at Cantor Fitzgerald, said in a report.
