    FORTUNE -- Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty on Thursday joined the chorus of sell-side analysts coming to Apple's (AAPL) defense in the midst of the stock's worst sell-off since the 2008 recession. (See What's eating Apple?)

    "Our Asia supply chain meetings point to potential momentum behind several key AAPL debates," she writes in a note to clients. "Namely, iPhone and iPad MORE

  • Analyst: iPad mini 'less cannibalistic' than expected

    A survey suggests that Windows PCs, not 10-inch iPads, will be its primary victim

    FORTUNE -- The day after the iPad mini was unveiled, Cowen's Matthew Hoffman wrote that he expected Apple's (AAPL) latest tablet to be "largely cannibalistic" -- eating directly into the sales of Apple's 10-inch iPad -- and he trimmed his iPad sales estimates accordingly.

    But to be certain, he ordered a survey of 1,225 Americans to gauge their MORE

    Suggested gifts on Apple's online store range from $30 to $500

    FORTUNE -- Apple (AAPL) must think Americans are feeling pretty flush this holiday season. With only 10 days to go before the madness of Black Friday, it posted a holiday gift guide Tuesday featuring some pretty pricy presents.

    Topping the page is the new iPad mini starting at $329. Given that Americans spent an average of $705 on presents last Christmas, MORE

  • Video: Nightline on Apple

    "Time to sell or time to buy? There's probably an app for that."

    FORTUNE -- ABC News Nightline weighed in Wednesday night on the recent decline in Apple's (AAPL) share price.

    Bulls and bears, I suspect, will both find something not to like in the report. The line that raised my eyebrows highest:

    "Even Microsoft, long ago left in Apple's dust, has a new exciting tablet called the Surface nudging for attention and MORE

  • Today in Tech: Is Foursquare really worth over $700 million?

    Also: Why booksellers are resisting Amazon's publishing venture; Why the iPad Mini may not be as popular.

    Foursquare looks into a fourth round at an over $700 million valuation [TECHCRUNCH]

    Perhaps investors are having a hard time drumming up enthusiasm because the company is valued at just under half the market cap of its public competitor Yelp, which boasts 84 million unique monthly visitors and 33 million reviews. The company has 25 million registered MORE

  • Apple's 3 million iPad weekend: What the analysts are saying

    Despite stock outs, sales of the Wi-Fi only model exceeded most of their expectations

    FORTUNE -- The actual number of iPad minis (as opposed to iPad 4s) sold over the past three days is still unclear. Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster put it at 2 to 2.5 million, despite the fact that 9 out of 10 customers his firm polled last Friday were buying the mini, and not the full-sized iPad 4.

    But MORE

  • How many iPad minis will Apple sell in its first weekend?

    Analysts' estimates range from 800,000 to 3 million

    FORTUNE -- Some queues for the iPad mini were shorter than expected. Others seemed unnaturally long. And when reports of stock outs began coming in, it wasn't clear whether demand was too strong or supplies too short.

    Apple (AAPL), it seems, can't win the iPad mini expectations game. Take, for example, the sales estimates put forward by analysts for the first three days of sales:
