Notice that AAPL is trading around $3 from yesterday's close. We're already adjusting for Ex-Div price, I wouldn't be surprised if we closed green tomorrow.
Don't be surprised if we green TODAY, possibly close up 5 points......that would kind of pale the size of Dividend wouldn't it!!
Of the last 4 EX days AAPL traded above the previous close twice and below twice and the combined increases are far more than the combined losses going back to 8-9-2012. So your statement is misleading with AAPL's historical data.
