Tech Earnings Preview: Apple


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series in which health-care editor/analyst David Williamson and technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.

No other technology company has been as preeminent in the minds of both consumers and investors as Apple over the last five years. The company successfully rewrote the rules of several industries, racking up fantastic returns for its shareholders in the process. And while the company was seemingly invincible in the past, it finds itself for the first time in recent memory with legitimate questions about its path forward. With its earnings announcement looming, Andrew sits down to discuss what investors should expect from this tech powerhouse in its most recent quarter.

Apple and other Internet leaders might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, but you can be among the first to access this just-released report by clicking here -- it's free.
