VIDEO: With Steve Jobs death, limelight shines brightly on Apple's Tim Cook
On Tuesday, Tim Cook will have a chance to show whether he intends to make any changes Apple, during the company's quarterly earnings call.
The spotlight returns to Apple this week when the company makes its first quarterly earnings report since the death of founder, chairman and former CEO Steve Jobs.
The report, scheduled for release on Tuesday, will be new CEO Tim Cook's first chance to make known any changes he'd like to make — or is already making.
James Rogers, who writes for TheStreet.com, asked a number of analysts what changes they think they might see — or would like to see — out of the new CEO.
Story continues below video.
First, Apple is known to be sitting on a large pile of cash. But historically, they've been disinterested in issuing quarterly or annual dividends. Is that likely to change, with new leadership?
"Unlikely," Rogers said.
The company also has a fairly small board of directors. Cook could expand it and bring in new blood.
Rogers also had a number of people asking about whether Apple would move into new areas of technology, like near-field communication, as well as suggesting the company might try to innovate in the display area.
And lastly, logistics. Cook is a logistics expert — that was his responsibility at Apple before moving into the c-suite — and analysts are saying he may have trained his eye on the company's Asian suppliers.
"Cook's a logistics guru. He knows everything there is to know about the company's supply chain," Rogers said.
