MacDailyNews Take: Sold out. As opposed to shipped out.

  1. When all you see are headlines of iPhone 4S selling out at record speed and quantities and ALL Apple products selling at record pace and numbers and then see the stock go down with the release of each and every headline – it doesn’t take a minor to conclude that someone with shares to spare ( read that: institutional) is dumping to deliberately disparage and create a negative impression of selling.

    SEC get your lazy asses on the Apple share price manipulation shenanigans – before you are linked to the payoff….

    1. This is par for the course. I heard that fund managers are very depressed at the moment because it is hard for them to make money for their clients. Apple is probably taking more of a hit because it is the only stock they can rely upon to bounce back.
      I agree that the SEC should do more but in really they are part of the problem.
      Just stay in for the long haul. Apple is up 25% for the year to date and there are not that many stocks that can say that.
      Every 6 months or so there is an adjustment to the upside. For those with spare cash they can take advantage of the lows.
      I jumped in 6 years ago and the stock is up 450%. Hopefully in 6 years time it will be up at least 1000% overall.
