The day ahead: Wednesday

September 8, 2009

Investors will eye Google and Apple as they display their wares and await  the possible return of Apple’s master showman CEO Steve Jobs at a media event.

*  Google is set to brief investors in a Webcast about search and monetization. While the company made its fortune on Internet search ads, Wall Street is increasingly eager for signs that the company’s other money-making bets will pay off.

*  Apple’s annual September gathering may or may not feature master showman CEO Steve Jobs. While revamped iPods are again on tap this year, much of the focus is stuck on whether Jobs will make his first public appearance since taking medical leave in January.

*  Shops start selling of “The Beatles: Rock Band”, one of the most highly anticipated new video games this year.

*  At the second day of the Reuters Global Climate and Alternative Energy Summit the agenda includes discussions with Brazil Environment Minister Carlos Minc, New Zealand Climate Change Minister Nick Smith, Keizai Doyukai Chairman Masamitsu Sakurai, Royal Society President Martin Rees and  Google Green Energy Czar Bill Weihl.
