Can't believe market swayed this much with one investor's opinion. Granted, he may have an army of analysts under his command, but why can't I help but think that he is trying to accumulate more shares of AAPL by making a comment like this at closing? He did say $525 as a buyback price for AAPL and as soon as the stock price was trying to break that price, he makes a comment that drives it down. Food for thought - does he know something that will break out AAPL soon and try to accumulate more when the stock price is below $525? After all, all of us are trying to make money here. Valuation is already at a ridiculous level. Wish I have more money to invest but i don't have $1B sitting around my desk.
He is in it for the money. Unfortunately, there is nothing illegal in expressing his opinions. I think AAPL is better off with Icahn...he is an unnecessary distraction and creating uncertainty about the direction of the Company.
