Can the Institutes and Hedgies walk 'er down? I suppose they will do heavy buying up to $550. Then, Apple will need to buy back shares heavily to resemble what IBM has done for the past ten years. Apple management can grind to $1000/share with the same market cap.
A significant partner expanding Apple's TV presence is also likely on the horizon. Can't call TV expansion a "black swan" event because everyone sees it coming. The Institutes and Hedgies want to reload before this partnership is announced?
Another way to get the shares to $1000 in a hurry.
