I thought buying would occur this week while there is some volume (light volume next holiday week). But, I think the fiscal cliff issue has people feeling they should just wait and take their chances early in the year to get more information. I do hope people don't wait all the way to a resolution, as I am very hopeful for a nice AAPL run-up into what should be very strong earnings.
Those big boys won't do things so predictable. I didn't think they will do it today, but the news is too good: iPhone back to %53 market share. So they have to do it next week or miss the boat. Now is nothing but someone doing early start.
