Top 15 Business News Stories of 2011

Wed, 28 Dec 2011 00:00:00 EST

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- From the wearisome European debt crisis to the implosion of MF Global, 2011 was a year filled with major business news stories and world events.

Apple's guru and co-founder Steve Jobs died in October after a long fight with pancreatic cancer, leaving Apple's millions of adherents without the spiritual presence of the mystical man in the black turtleneck.

Occupy Wall Street took the country by storm, in some ways literally, as anti-bank, anti-corporate, anti-greed protesters set up camps and clashed with police from coast to coast. The protesters' chant of "We are the 99 percent" became part of the national lexicon. ...

Brocade, Nokia: Tech Winners & Losers

Fri, 05 Aug 2011 16:23:53 EDT

Brocade, Nokia winners and losers story updated with closing prices.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Brocade, the Silicon Valley network equipment maker, helped push the tech-heavy Nasdaq down in trading Friday. Its stock dropped more than 28% to close at $3.52 after the firm lowered its fiscal third-quarter outlook on weaker demand for its Internet infrastructure products.

Brocade, which reports fiscal third-quarter earnings on Aug. 18, said it expects total revenue of $500 million to $505 million, which would be flat on a year-over-year basis, and earnings of 8 cents to 9 cents per share. Analysts had expected earnings of 11 cents per share on revenue of $548.3 million. Brocade previously projected revenue of $540 million to $560 million and earnings of 10 cents to 11 cents per share excluding items for the period. ...

LinkedIn Profits; Fusion-io Bumps Estimates

Fri, 05 Aug 2011 09:23:15 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- LinkedIn shares were continuing their rise in pre-market trading Friday, up 2.61% to $98.01, following its second-quarter estimates blowout.

The business-minded social network cut some of Thursday's stock market gloom by reporting a surprise small profit after the bell, posting top-line revenue of $121 million, more than doubling the $54.9 million in revenue it posted in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted earnings per share were 10 cents, above the loss of 3 cents and quarterly revenue of $104.7 million analysts were expecting.

The company, which plans on reinvesting money into itself to make its site more sticky for users, has grown to 115.8 million members so far, up 61% from a year ago. ...

Motorola Mobility Beats Estimates

Thu, 28 Jul 2011 16:42:59 EDT

Motorola Mobility story updated from 4:07 p.m.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Motorola Mobility, the Libertyville, Ill. handset maker gearing up for a busy few weeks of Android debuts, reported solid second-quarter earnings Thursday, but its full-year and third-quarter guidance -- both well below what analysts were expecting -- was dragging down its share price in extended trading by more than 7%. Motorola reported adjusted earnings of 9 cents a share on sales of $3.3 billion -- up 28% from the year-ago quarter -- for its second quarter. Analysts expected earnings per share of 6 cents on sales of $3.12 billion. Last quarter, following its split from sister company Motorola Solutions, the smartphone and tablet maker reported a narrower-than-expected loss of 8 cents a share on sales of $3.03 billion. Motorola closed trading Thursday down 89 cents at $22.91

The company, whose worldwide smartphone market share has been fading in the shadows of giants like Apple and Android rivals Samsung and HTC, is under pressure to show growth and positive results following its Jan. 4 split from Motorola Solutions. ...

Motorola Mobility Looks Good on Paper

Thu, 28 Jul 2011 10:34:42 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- If incremental profit growth and gradual product rollouts defined success in today's mobile device market, then Motorola Mobility, which reports second-quarter earnings after the bell Thursday, would top every investor's list this year.

Unfortunately, innovation as it relates to consumers' desire for the next great gadget moves at a steady breakneck pace, and Motorola, whose promising 2011 product launches have either been delayed or half-baked, has fallen behind.

The company, say analysts, isn't likely to see big market gains until next quarter, when its 4G products firmly hit U.S. shelves and it cements further gains in China. ...

IBM Finds Its iOS, Android Startup Star

Thu, 30 Jun 2011 12:53:53 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday night, IBM announced that Localytics, a three-year old tech firm from Cambridge, Mass., won the twelfth SmartCamp competition, a jousting ground for five start-ups all peddling some type of data analytics software.

While the crowd wasn't as alternative or cool as the ones present at, say, New York City's TechCrunch Disrupt or South by Southwest in Austin, Texas -- think clean-cut entrepreneurs in crisp business casual pitching technology that caters to municipalities and large corporations -- the underlying goal of the event was the same: Highlight hot, mobile applications.

Granted, no new social networks or group-texting apps surfaced. Instead, venture capitalists and IBMers heard about technologies that would wirelessly network nature to city offices, help homeowners use their iPhones to make efficient home-heating decisions and enable corporations to better retain their brand image across multiple social networks. ...

Intuit CEO Talks Earnings, Tech Bubble

Fri, 20 May 2011 11:06:47 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- With investor interest devoted to the huge LinkedIn IPO Thursday, there wasn't the usual love for Intuit, the tax prep and financial software provider that posted solid third-quarter numbers after the bell.

Although the company grew its profit and sales by 20% and 15% respectively -- tax season is historically Intuit's strongest season -- Intuit's shares dipped more than 3% in the after-hours session Thursday and opened down 2% Friday, due to the company's conservative fourth-quarter guidance. Intuit CEO Brad Smith

Intuit said it expects revenue of $567 million to $587 million, while most analysts want to see $587.2 million. ...

Microsoft Boosted by Corporate Spending

Thu, 28 Apr 2011 18:16:13 EDT

Microsoft earnings story updated with executive comment from the firm's conference call.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Despite a 4% drop in year-over-year Windows 7 sales, Microsoft posted a solid beat of estimates for its fiscal third quarter, fueled by big Kinect for Xbox sales and the continuing rally in corporate IT business.

The one down point in the company's press release was soft Windows 7 sales, which reflect recent reports of falling consumer PC shipments. Issues likely impacting the consumer computer segment are supply chain disruptions in Japan, Window 7's maturity and slight cannibalization of margins due to tablet PCs. ...

Microsoft Defines Waiting Game

Thu, 28 Apr 2011 09:44:57 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- No tech company defines the waiting game better than Microsoft.

The Redmond, Wash. tech giant, on deck to report fiscal third-quarter earnings after the bell Thursday, is likely to repeat the same pattern spun out over the past five or so quarters: A post of solid top- and bottom-line growth, followed by a drop in stock price that lasts for at least a few days.

While some analysts say that investor patience is about to pay off, a lasting pop in Microsoft's stock won't likely hit until the firm shows tangible evidence of overcoming the two big problems perceived by investors: A (tablet?) plan to offset what could be long-term softness in the consumer PC sector and doing a better job of catching up to rival mobile OS brands like Apple and Google. ...

American Airlines' Loss Shrinks

Wed, 20 Apr 2011 10:52:52 EDT

An earlier version of this American Airlines earnings story incorrectly reported that American is the only U.S. carrier expected to report a first-quarter loss. Most airlines are expected to report a first-quarter loss; American is the one airline expected to report a loss for the full year.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Battling soaring fuel costs, a nasty winter and expectations as one of many U.S. carriers to post a loss for the first quarter, American Airlines parent AMR reported better-than-expected earnings -- a narrower loss -- Wednesday morning.

Excluding items, American reported a loss of $405 million, or $1.21 a share, compared with the $1.32 consensus loss expected by analysts. American reported a loss of $452 million, or $1.36 a share in the year-ago period. ...

Google Shares Down On Mixed Results

Thu, 14 Apr 2011 17:00:09 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Highlighting a turning point that the world's largest search company has reached, Google posted mixed first-quarter earnings Thursday after the bell.

While quarterly sales came in well above estimates -- $6.5 billion (excluding traffic acquisition costs, or TAC) vs. $6.3 billion -- profits, which actually rose about 17%, fell short of what analysts wanted to see. Google posted adjusted earnings of $8.08 per share, two cents less than what analysts were calling for.

Tacking on TAC -- the money Google pays affiliates to bring traffic to its network -- the company reported sales of $8.58 billion, representing almost 30% increase over the prior year's quarter. ...

FCC: Verizon, AT&T Must Open Networks

Thu, 07 Apr 2011 14:13:59 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to require big wireless carriers Verizon and AT&T to open their data networks to regional operators in areas where the smaller players don't have their own systems.

The FCC hopes the move, intended to counter consolidation in an industry dominated by AT&T and Verizon, will drive more competition in wireless broadband as consumers around the country increasingly access the Internet through data-sucking mobile devices.

"The framework we adopt today will spur investment in mobile broadband and spur competition," said FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, during a live stream of the commission's meeting Thursday. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski ...

Wed, 06 Apr 2011 09:31:43 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Cisco was rising 10 cents in pre-market trading Wednesday after CEO John Chambers admitted his company's recent shortcomings in a email to employees.

"Today we face a simple truth: We have disappointed our investors and we have confused our employees," Chambers wrote. "Bottom line, we have lost some of the credibility that is foundational to Cisco's success -- and we must earn it back."

Two consecutive quarters of weak outlook have raised big questions about Cisco's long-term strategy, and the company's stock is down more than 34% over the last 12 months. ...

Fri, 01 Apr 2011 13:32:08 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Demand for products drives the economy. This week, TheStreet asked two CEOs where they see demand currently.

Intuit CEO Brad Smith: "We're seeing demand happening across all of our core businesses -- the reason why we are is because even in recessionary times, the products we build are designed to put more money in your pocket."
