Will discuss company's financial performance
Apple CEO Tim Cook will address the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference in San Francisco tomorrow, February 14th, with Apple providing an audio webcast of the presentation. While video or audio recordings of Apple executives speaking at industry conferences are not unheard of, it is unusual for Apple itself to be hosting a live broadcast of its CEO speaking to an industry group. Cook is expected to discuss Apple's financial performance.
Apple's stock closed above $500 today for the first time ever, further adding value to the company's market capitalization. Apple is already the most highly-valued publicly-traded company in the world. Cook will likely reiterate some of the specifics behind the numbers in Apple's record-setting Q1 2012 fiscal results from the company's January analyst conference call, though the standard disclaimer on the webcast placeholder page contains the usual language regarding any "forward-looking statements." Cook is also likely to discuss the emerging importance of expanding markets in China, Latin America and other regions.
Former Apple retail head Ron Johnson was interviewed on The Daily Ticker regarding the $502.60 all-time high and expressed great praise for both the company and the executive team, saying Apple's "best days are still in the future" and that he expects the team to "really excel in the decade ahead."
Cook's address is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Eastern time, 12:30 p.m. Pacific and will be available live from the QuickTime Conference page. Rebroadcasts and podcast versions may be available after the event.
