      ‘And per yahoo …..= 4.920,000,000…. yesterday it was 5.07 at yahoo as well.. how can close to 800 million shares have disappeared from yesterday ?

      1. Apple has been gobbling up shares at a very quick pace. Not sure when they officially vaporize them, but I imagine that’s done at some point within each quarter prior to the distribution of dividends.

  1. Truly pathetic effort by the lackadaisical management staff who focus on all the wrong things. Don’t ask why aren’t they at 1 trillion, the question to ask is, why aren’t they at TWO trillion?

    I’ll TELL you why, Tim and Jony’s gotta go!

    1. Yehhh, if only they could have you and your businesss wisdom at the helm. Maybe they could grow into the biggest company on the planet instead of……. oh, wait.

    2. Tim and Ive are good caretakers to prepare for Forstal’s return. In the interim, they can do both: 1. Drive up shares and 2. fix hardware MacPro and software Siri.

      1. Forstal’s too busy at that tech company he’s at now to leave. They DO say he’s the tech visionary that was needed for them at this time. I hear there were 4 tech companies vying for his attention when the lucky one snapped him up.

        1. Exactly who are these 4?
          Or role of advisors at snapchat is equavalant to running Apple to you..

          Wrong Again will you try saying something that is not wrong again ?

          1. That’s just the kind of history that you _expect_ a man to have if someone wanted them to be the CEO of Apple. The first time I read Forstall’s name on this site suggested as a replacement for Tim, I looked him up to see what amazing things in tech he had been up to. Had he, like Steve, founded his own tech company, learning from the mistakes he made that led to his ouster??

            Nope, seems that his claim to fame was just being Steve Jobs friend, because no one else wants him. Except Snap. But not as a CEO, or an executive… as an advisor. Even Snap ONLY wants him as an advisor. Yet, some people think he’d do a bang up job running the most valuable company in the US. I mean, MAYBE if he was even somewhere as an executive in one of the top…. I don’t know, 700 companies? Is that too much to ask for a replacement?

  2. I wonder what Jobs would think and do with shares so high which I don’t think he anticipated? Worth considering. Some researcher using deep data needs to examine this question, publish a report, and MDN provide a link to it. I would love this.
