no other conculsion can be made as we watch the largest market cap drop for a company with the cash, assets, sales and growth of this company. The only possible good news is that the bad news is so prevalant.
Apple can stop this any time they want. All they need to do as announce a buyback and start purchasing stock. At these prices they really can't get much better of a return on anything else. It is unconscionable that they just sit back on a mountain of cash at let their investors suffer. Incredibly stupid, too, as the negative PR from this fiasco has really hurt the company.
