  1. “Yaaaaah, gainin’ a little weight here. I guess I expect that I should be expectin’ soon. ‘Course, my expectations ain’t real high er nuttin’, seein’ as how I expect to be knocked up by another twenty cheatin’ husbands tonight … all of ’em expectin’ some form of escape from their expectin’ wives.

  2. This is a stupid game Piper Jeffery and other analysts have been playing with Apple’s stock for several months now… driving down the price so they can buy in bulk at a low price, then forcing the price back up agian so they gain a profit. Whenever an analyst comments on Apple stock, just check their own, or partners, buying patterns and you will see the game they play.
