NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- On the most basic level, expectations for Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) earnings aren't wandering lost in the valley of indecision. Wall Street analysts expect about $10.35 a share on revenue of $37.2 billion for the third quarter due to be reported after the close of trading on Tuesday.Though many of the legions of non-Wall Street Apple followers -- who have historically been more on the mark than the so-called professionals -- expect more, the collective mind-state is more negative than usual, making it easier for Apple to surpass expectations.
