A new age of openness at Apple? Just hours after activist investor David Einhorn went public with demands that the company share more of its cash, Apple quickly issued a statement and they’re now following up with an even bolder stroke — the Tim Cook keynote at Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference will be live streamed.
Further, the scheduled time for Cook’s address has been pushed up by six hours from 4:15pm to 10:15am (EST). The obvious takeaway is that Apple wants investors to react and, presumably, drive the company’s share price.
More money for Einhorn and everyone else that owns AAPL? Honestly, I would love if Cook told those gathered at Goldman Sach’s event they’re a bunch of morons and can go pound sand, but that’s unlikely.
That said, Apple has posted a link to the placeholder page where investors, analysts and, yes, the rest of us can Listen to the Audio Webcast of the Tim Cook keynote at Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference.
What do you think Cook will say — doubling of the dividend? Apple’s going private? Einhorn’s a moron?
