The shares are still too much. They cost almost as much as an unsubsidized nexus 4. So much for apple being the first trillion dollar company

Unsubsidized price is $350 in the Play store.
550 is just some stupid price tag in T-Mobile.

Listen to this guy Munster and risk losing your house, all speculation he says has only 1 purpose: keeping Apple's stock price up.
I think the market simply reacts to disappointing iPhone and iPad sales.

Sometimes I wonder what's more manipulated, Apple stock prices or the price of coffee. Hard to tell at times.

NO different than Goldman Sachs influencing the election - these analysts have a purpose in mind when reporting their predictions....

Apple has been grossly over inflated for years. For investors' sakes I am glad it hasn't crashed completely, but it wouldn't hurt my feelings if it lost 99% of its value. $5.38/share sounds more accurate for such a low-volume company, even with their insane markups.

Look at their P/E and P/E/G and say that with a straight face. Apple made more than Microsoft, Google, Ebay, Yahoo, and Amazon, combined, in FY12.

'Apple Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue just sold 15,000 shares for $8.76 million shares.'
Does Eddy know something that others do not? Inside information?
