This news might knock out the acquisition premiums from the current price starting from tomorrow, small investors were once again fooled by that recent seekingalpha pumper!!! We will see what the acquisition premium is then!!!!
Gutfeel, Looking at the 1 month chart, it would be hard to guess when anyone influenced the chart. Volume was a little higher the day of the Seeking Alpha article, but no higher than other days in preceding weeks, and it did not cause us to move out of our trading range. I doubt that Altucher had a significant impact on the SP, and the Apple news will also be a non issue. It would have been an issue last July though.
The focus now is on product diversification and royalty growth, with patent litigation on the back burner. That is not to say that the SP may not bobble over the next week on low volume...imho
News just out. Of course the Apple Insider was the first to release it. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Apple patent numbers D675,639 and D675,612, respectively covering the much-disputed slide-to-unlock user interface asset and design for the original iPhone.
