After The Bell: Apple, Yahoo Earnings on Tap
Will Apple again post blowout earnings? Will Yahoo struggle once more?
Technology bellwether Apple (AAPL) is slated to announce quarterly earnings after the stock market closes Tuesday. Analysts, on average, expect the firm to clock earnings per share of $5.82 in the quarter, compared with $3.51 in the same quarter last year.
Markets will, however, look forward to Apple beating both its own conservative estimates for the quarter and analysts' forecasts, as it has frequently done in the past. Investors will focus on Apple's sales numbers for the iPhone and iPad and whether growth continues at the scorching rate as previously recorded.
