I would not split this if it hit $2,000 per share. IMO, a lot of the bashers and purported shorts here cannot currently afford to buy AAPL let alone have the finances to short it. If AAPL was $56, the landscape would change. I am perfectly happy to own a few hundred shares, knowing that bottom feeders cannot easily day trade or short this stock. Fortunately, we APPL shareholders have no obligation to make sure everyone gets "their fair share" of APPL stock. At least it hasn't come to that yet, though nothing would surprise me anymore.
