    “so why, pray tell, did dell go up more than apple? what can possibly be the upside there?”

    Michael Dell probably purchased his own company’s shares, believing they’re quite the bargin. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

    Market manipulation is king right now.
    The Market Drivers are so stormy it doesn’t take much to spark a sell-off in the market.

    Someone will short Dell or it will have some profit taking tomorrow at some point and drive a sell off in the entire tech sector and then it would be a good time to buy some Apple Stock when the tech sector hits it’s daily bottom tomorrow from the sector sell off frenzy that is likely to happen.
