Some silence can be a crime especially if that benefits long or short. Tim actions suggests that he manipulates stock. Check out where he invested the money he made on Apple stocks he had sold.
Cook manipulates stocks himself. check how much stock he has sold recently and where he puts his money. He may be investing in company that shorts apple
CM started taking Apple orders, they made apple posters and displayed inside their stores...were they playing? Those actions carry financial implications and apple should have said something just as they did when there was a fake chinese apple store.
No way! Those in position to fire Cook have all been bribed with lot of free shares. They cannot talk because they have "food" in their mouth. (Al Gore &co)
@ chin_music, Yes. Cook would knowingly allow the stock to be held down because he has 2 types of shareholders and most of his friends are on the short side and favors them with silence (GS is example).
argyle46 , I agree with you considering how Tim will make ER conference call and kind of admit that something wasn't quite 100%..."we passed on 1 through 9 but failed 10" . Always deliberately 1 step behind street expectation. How many shares has he or Al Gore bought in last 2 yrs except free awarded stocked?
I remember Radian CEO (Abrahim) who was buying RDN 10k share /month for many months as the stock climbed from $2 to $14.
Apple uses silence as a trading strategy / tool to make money
Granted, not good day trade stock. Has been good YEAR trade, compared to Priceline, google, amazon,NFLX, baidu, etc?
If so busy, how did he find time to attend Ichan's lunch? What is the point making the best company look like worst company and traded like DNDN?
