Hedge funds are keeping the price down by accumulating then pulling orders to let the stock come in. They will lull everyone to sleep in this stock. Then when the market tanks and AAPL goes back to $500, people will be surprised at the stealth rally and say, how did that happen. The time to short was at $700 and $600 and $500. How much downside can you expect from here. That's a suckers game. This is the oldest trick in the book. Amazing how many retailers fall for it.
It's the Big Fund Managers that move the stock, not retailers. So in that sense, unless they pile money into a stock, it won't move. That's why the price is being kept down. It will move up once there is a catalyst. Then they will pile back in and retailers will start chasing the price instead of buying on the cheap.
