These aren't stodgy blue chips, either. Between them, Facebook, Google, and Amazon have all outperformed the market meaningfully over the last 12 months. And Apple's no slouch itself.

Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon: What to expect
For the three companies that have put up the most dominant performances over the last year (Facebook, Google, and Amazon), expect more in the way of big-time growth when they report. Each company dominates its respective sub-genre of tech and is finding innovative ways to expand its reach.

As the world's largest publicly traded company, Apple has the hardest growth comp. The law of large numbers is a very real thing, folks. However, despite its truly immense size, Apple should still post moderate growth in its coming quarterly report and in the years to come.

In the video below, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner looks at the earnings expectations and key story lines for when Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon report in the week ahead.

The best way to play the mobile technology boom

    Compared to Apple Google's price per share is totally out of order and not justified,Google needs to post $22 earnings per share this quarter and the next three to justify the current $1,106 a share price and bring it's PE in line with APPLE. Wall Street is setting Google stock up for a hell of a fall and the shorts are going to make a killing on Google at some point. A lot of people are being set up to loose a hell of a lot of money. Google needs 64.7 % margins?. It.s not going to happen, Google isn't even justified at $705 a share. Apple is but not Google.Compared to Apple Google clearly nets far less profit.When main street investors see Wall Street Analyst playing games with stocks like Apple,Google,Netflix, Chipotle and numerous other stocks, you don't have to ask why most of main street's money is still on the side lines.It's sad to say ,but WALL STREET has allowed the analyst to lower the US STOCK MARKET to a new pathetic low. Hey Mac- with regards to your story, if you have 5 rare vases the only five in existence and you break one of them, the other four become more valuable. Same with Apple buying shares back. Anyway this is my opinion on things,just like most of main street investors ,I've pretty much lost all of my respect for Wall Street and the major banks that seem to be running the USA into the ground.
