any AAPL options, you would think AAPL would start to care that their currency has been hikacked, but seems they are indifferent
no cook is nothing like jobs, but both dont care much for shareholder, dont have too, especially someone holding less than many years
200 to 130 was in 6 weeks, 700 to 400 was in 7 months, very different type of drop. jan 08 was before the crisis really set in, point is aapl does not care about stock price, it is a shame that the names you mentioned and many others have left aapl shares in the dust, but that is what happens when your stock is controlled by option MM. only way for aapl to increase share price is to give 100% of after tax profit each Q in DIV, can you imagine what people would pay for a $35 annual div? - surely a lot more than the zero they get from goog
you are so confused
aapl never care much about stock price; especially short term,
even Jobs told everyone to relax when it dropped from 200 to 130 in jan 08, that drop is much bigger than anything since including the drop from 705...
Jobs knew WALL ST controlled price and nothing company could do
if you are counting on AAPL going up in a week or a month or a Q you are gambling
well looks like another week of collecting call premiums a massive success, i didnt look at the puts, but maybe 530 was the optimal MM price there as well.
ok to first part, yeah getting rid of uptick rule looks real dumb in hindsight, this week what? F&F? you really think these govt call options are worth anything?
i dont really think he meant to cause a crash, i think he meant well, but panicked in a shock and caused a meltdown
your last sentence makes little sense
i think the chance of cook out or stock over 700 in 2014 is very low, in 2015 it is also low, but why dont you buy some calls
