    Not clear what the short sellers hope to accomplish

    It is amazing what they have accomplished so far with the help of their useful tools in the blogosphere and pseudo news outlets like cnbc. The odd thing is that money can be made both long and short but long profits are unlimited. The short potential is relatively limited. Yet they persist. Apple has a gigantic cash horde and that alone is going to limit the downside. Eventually all this nonsense will come to an end and valuation will decide what a share of Apple is worth. No matter what the most rabid elements posting on this board have to say, the bottom is not far away. Personally, I think anyone entertaining a new short position is taking an immense risk, much greater than the risk to anyone who is holding Apple shares.
