Buyback = 28,000,000 shares @$500. What would the price be if they hadn't?????
One can look at a half full glass in that Apple reached into its pocket and shelled out $14B over the past two weeks; one can look at a half empty glass and wonder what the share price would look like today if they hadn't propped up the price with 28,000,000 on the buy side in just two weeks. Scary to contemplate.
My interpretation is more half-empty. What happens when the buying stops.
