    1. Let’s hope this doesn’t turn into the 2012 Apple share price collapse. Nearly very day leading up to Great Apple Collapse of 2012, MDN would be posting this stuff but once the decline started, no more closing high headlines. They certainly wouldn’t be posting about how Apple’s once lofty share price was sinking into a bottomless pit.

      I’m not sure if these headlines are considered gloating or not but it’s worth remembering that with Apple anything can put the company’s share price into a tailspin just as quickly. The memory is still vivid in my head as though it happened yesterday and it wasn’t pleasant at all for Apple shareholders who truly believed Apple was solid as a rock.

      1. Painful memories. There are a few differences today: stock buybacks, margin stabilization, EPS increases and the end of overly optimistic estimates based on historical sandbagging. In addition, a major new market has recently been added – China Mobile and new product categories will soon be added to the lineup.

          1. Currently, there is 1.73 percent shares short. I remember seeing something like 40 million in April 2013 (there could of been more earlier). At 920 million or so float at that time this calculates to about 4.3 percent.

            Since the split there are less shares traded on a daily basis comparing apples to apples (multiplying current shares traded by 7). And according to barcharts.com AAPL is not in the top 100 traded stocks by liquidity. But, I think there is still a decent amount of options traded.

      1. Rapidly disappearing comments point to the existence of an unconstrained nannybot, which accounts for the pablumisation of MDN ever since the vulgarity/PC wars. For details consult Orwell 1984.
