Don't forget the nice rebound in the pre-market. Well I guess it isn't exactly a rebound. :( Pre-Market : 471.81 22.83 (4.62%) 9:08AM EDT
My guess is Timmy told Carl in advance so he could bail out above $500. In return Timmy got a suit case full of Brazilian reals(R$).
The only deal that is going to be announced is Timmy's golden parachute for $500 million.
I doubt it. AAPL will need the cash for the many golden parachutes for the rats(i.e. Timmy) that abandon the sinking ship in the next few months.
Because AAPL doesn't deal with no name startups who have them by the balls.
