thatsgonnad... is a real idiot who is trying to profit from Jobs's death by creating rumors. I cannot believe that there is such a being in this world...
Here is a link that show current world markets: http://www.cnbc.com/id/17689937/site/14081545/ Currently, all markets are up big, except China, which is down a fraction of a percent.
Ironically, the death of Steve Jobs is going to have a very positive effect on the share price leading up to earnings. It may not be tomorrow, but day after day of reminding the world of all of the amazing products that Apple has produced is going to spike sales. Steve's heart stopped beating today, unfortunately, but it will beat strong within Apple for many years to come. Thank you, Steve. You'll be missed. Oh, and one more thing, ...
I think the only thing you can look at are Nasdaq futures and they are down but marginally so and in proportion to dow futures. The Deutsche Borse does not open until the morning German time. The people who read this board cannot move apple stock. Please stop the stupidity.
None of the overseas markets are open.
AAPL id HALTED in the USA Markets in the after hours trading.
From what I have seen in the past few years AAPL will "probably take a hit from this news".
The key is that the market does not like uncertainty. An example I would use is HPQ. Their problems with the stock price started when their CEO was removed. People seem to get out until the uncertainty is gone and then come back to the stocks.
I do not own this stock.
Good luck to all who do.
