  1. And the silence from the MDN financial wizards (“SELL SELL SELL,” “Stock Boy,” “Peterson,” et al.) is deafening.

    As that great philosopher of the silver screen Bugs Bunny might intone . . . “What maroons!”

  2. Dave, Apple splits it’s stock usually around 85-90. In the beginning of this year Apple was over-inflated at 85, after the flurry of a great Christmas. Now Apple is solid at 81, and will creep up to 90 in anticipation of another great Christmas. Yeah, I’d say a stock split is in the near future. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it roll post split to 60 after this Christmas. My 2 cents.
