Earlier today, Tim Cook held a town hall meeting for all Apple employees to congratulate them on a record-setting quarter. Apple reported revenues of $54.5 billion and a net profit of $13.1 billion for its fourth quarter. Both profit and revenue were all-time highs for Apple, but of course the analysts wanted more, so Apple's stock price fell today in response to record revenues.

That's why I don't guide a financial investment site; it rarely makes sense to me, so I leave it to the experts.
Regardless of how the investors took the news, Tim Cook sent a thank you email to all employees:
"We've just reported another record setting quarter, thanks to everyone's incredible hard work and focus. We sold over 75 million iOS devices in the holiday quarter alone, which is a testament to the strength of Apple's innovation. Please join me for an employee communications meeting tomorrow at 10 a.m. Pacific time in the auditorium of De Anza 3. We've created a space on AppleWeb where you can submit your questions in advance, and we'll do our best to answer as many of them as we can during the meeting. The meeting will be broadcast live throughout Cupertino and at many other Apple locations. Please check AppleWeb for details.
We haven't heard anything yet about what questions may have been asked, or if Apple used the meeting to unveil any new employee appreciation programs, which it has done in the past after big quarters. If we hear anything, we'll let you know.
