Rampant manipulation and SEC is asleep at the wheel
The false Reuters report on Foxconn hiring freezes. The initial story was played for all its worth while Reuters correction/retraction did nothing to move the stock. Same thing for pre-earnings news of Apple screen order cutbacks.
This is a well orchestrated campaign to bring Apple down to its knees. Truly appalling. I guess what is even more appalling is management's inertia and lack of proactive support of the stock.
