Short interest is 18 million...down from 19 million. Only 1.9%, yes, that is very low. RIMM has 137 million...on an uptrend. AAPL short interest is on a downtrend, which means, shorts not a certain as they used to be. My guess, ER will be above 13 per share, but not by much. Close enough to estimates not to cause swings in the share price. I guess they made 5 billion on phones, 7 billion on itunes and 1 billion on miscellaneous. So, go ahead and buy AAPL or sell puts without worry. You will not lose your money from this current valuation.
