Wall Street has been buzzing about Cook’s speech since at least last week, when it was rumored that he said something in his speech at Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS)’s event which pushed the stock higher. Unfortunately for those who made a bet on the stock because of that rumor, his speech isn’t until tomorrow. But what really has the rumor mill going now is the fact that while Cook’s speech was initially going to come after the markets closed, now it will be right at the beginning of the trading day.
Of course we’ve been hearing a lot about what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could do this year, including everything from the release of an Apple Television set to a less expensive iPhone.
