Amateurs Beat "Experts" in Predicting Apple's Financials

"Now that Apple's 1st quarter financial performance has been revealed, it's time to revisit predictions made by amateurs and pros alike. Fortune's Philip Elmer-DeWitt did just that, and found that the novices out-guessed several high-priced heavyweights."

Impressive, but really when you get right down to it, what makes an "expert?" If it is someone that studies the markets and educates themselves about companies, then they are all experts. At least that is the way I look at it, and the only difference between these two groups is that one group is paid to be an expert, the other group does it voluntarily.

Another Perspective on Apple's Financial Results

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 02:00 PM

"A merry holiday season helped Apple kick off its 2011 fiscal year with a stellar first quarter that blew away Wall Street expectations. Apple saw sales of $26.74 billion and a net profit of $6 billion-both quarterly records-for the three months ended December 25, 2010, the company announced Tuesday."

I know, I know, we have already posted on this story earlier today, but if you want a version with some fancy graphs this Macworld article is your ticket. It gives you another perspective on the Tuesday conference call and really illustrates the impressive results.
