Palm: Report Sees Pre Defects Hitting Earnings

…I decided to take a look and see how Palm (PALM) and their carrier partner Sprint (S) are doing and then compared their stock charts (thanks Yahoo! Finance!) to their arch enemies Apple (AAPL) and AT&T (T). As you can see, PALM and S stock prices have done very well during this calendar year. PALM is up nearly 400% year-to-date while S is up over 150%. High flyer AAPL is also doing well at around the 80% increase area. However, T has been hovering in negative territory all year so far.

I had only been following AAPL this year and was surprised to see how well PALM and S have also done so far. As for T? Well…

I have no idea how accurate the assessment reported by Barron’s is. But, it should be interesting to see how this plays out through the end of the year (and the holiday buying season).
