aapl has never gone anywhere and will never go anywhere longterm without changes. Shares outstanding are up 10 percent over last year. This occurs every year since Jobs believes in ownership theft or stock options. Even though aapl is below its high adj price of 100 in 2000 (it was 25 20 years ago) Jobs still finds it necessary to give away options to attact employees or make them work harder. Supposely this is to make the stock rise. But, if the price is down from 100 in 2000, how can you still give options. Wouldn't those options be invalid. The answer is no, all they do is make new options with new expiration dates. There are laws being considered in congress to limit options from the top 5 highest earning employees of a firm. Which makes it suspect why Jobs is going to pay himself $1.
