all of the current news is not fearful.... Blowing away earnings and posting a $14-$15 print is fearful. splitting the stock 5-1 is fearful. Signing the China Mobile dear will squeeze the hell out of shorts. All this ancillary noise before the rubber hits the road will do nothing for the stock, in particular with the media showing the company no love. I am not one for knee jerk corporate communication, like providing a head line of any sort simply to prop the stock. but it would be nice to get the shorts back on the defensive. as of now, today, no one is scared.
I think AAPL is a great company, but I am short biased on the stock. When the "radio" announced that AAPL had hit $700 dollars a share and "know it all" investment advisors telll you buy because its going to $1000.... someone big is trying to get out. I do not trust anyone on wall street.
