I would say none was due to Apple buy back today. Look, Apple will buy at wholesale price which is close to 500. At this point, we are on higher side of wholesale price zone and expect a rapid increase in following weeks. and then we will get to retail price zone. Enjoy :)
No not really, But Everything is perception in the stocks world.
Perception the lowest point 495$ was the last cheapest gift that will never come present again.
And perception we are in a rally mode untill announce day for new product.
This suspense alone should keep run and stay stable till next earning release that might please or disapppoint.
