Despite record breaking revenue and profits, Apple is taking a pounding on Wall Street today as shares of Apple are down over 10% and trading at $460 levels. I guess when you fail to hit the arbitrary guesstimates of Wall Street clowns, you take a financial beating even if you happen to deliver the most profitable quarter in the history of the world.
But that aside, Tim Cook earlier today sent out an email to Apple employees congratulating them on another stellar quarter (let’s just hope they’re not watching the share price) and inviting them to a Town Hall Q&A at 10 a.m. Pacific Time in 1 Infinite Loop.
9to5Mac obtained the email in full and it reads:
We’ve just reported another record setting quarter, thanks to everyone’s incredible hard work and focus. We sold over 75 million iOS devices in the holiday quarter alone, which is a testament to the strength of Apple’s innovation. Please join me for an employee communications meeting tomorrow at 10 a.m. Pacific time in the auditorium of De Anza 3. We’ve created a space on AppleWeb where you can submit your questions in advance, and we’ll do our best to answer as many of them as we can during the meeting. The meeting will be broadcast live throughout Cupertino and at many other Apple locations. Please check AppleWeb for details.
It’ll be interesting to see how Cook addresses Apple’s share price, if at all. Also interesting will be Cook’s answers regarding Apple’s upcoming product pipeline. While we shouldn’t expect any specific details, remember that Steve Jobs once used a Town Hall to chastise Google and promise Apple employees that the next-gen iPhone (which at the time was the not-yet-released iPhone 4) was going to be an A+ upgrade.
