    Wow, what’s happening?  Who’s buying?

    We might soon be at the price I was anticipating for the end of the week anyway.

    Edited: I just hope no one is buying expecting Jobs to return in June.  That just brings us back to where we were (ie uncertainty about leadership).

    People like myself who covered at the bell, flipped long for a trade.

    Do you plan on selling those shares sometime today (if you haven’t already)? Assuming that, though AAPL is holding up relatively well, we’ll see a big selloff at the end of the day.

    Perhaps the market is too busy crushing the banks to worry about AAPL today.

    It’s still early, of course, but it’s certainly encouraging to see AAPL hold above $80 (often 81) despite yesterday’s news.

    BAC was shortable this morning as it was roughly following the inverse of AAPL with an exit of between $8.00 and $7.50 since that is what people kind of figure BAC is worth without a dividend.

    Black Swan Counter: 9 (Banks need money, Jobs needs a break, Geithner has no plan, Cuomo’s grandstanding, .Gov needs a hobby, GS works for money, flash crash, is that bubbling crude?).

    For those who look, a flash allows one to see farther.

    Apple: The Street debates what to do

    A roundup of various analysts and their reactions to yesterday’s news… almost all the analysts cited maintained overweight / outperform ratings and often strongly recommended buying.

    Jobs said yesterday he?s taking a five-month leave of absence after discovering that his health problems are ?more complex? than he thought last week,” Guglielmo, Garner and Gale report. “Jobs had a procedure similar to a Whipple operation, which involves removing parts of the pancreas, bile duct and small intestine, after he was diagnosed with a rare type of pancreatic cancer in 2004. A potential side effect of this procedure is that the organ has to be removed to prevent pancreatic leak, and the patient has to be kept alive with insulin to regulate blood sugar, said Robert Thomas, head of surgery at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne.”

    In other words, Jobs may very well be back.

    Will AAPL be able to hold 80 in case the S&P slides below 820 and the Dow below 8000??

    Plato, I was literally just getting ready to type those EXACT words. I’m concerned about where everything goes if we lose 820 and 8000.

    CNBC is reporting SJ’s condition and the way he handled the whole situation to death. As if there is nothing else out there to report.

    In the meantime S&P slipped shortly below 820.

    Dow below 8000 now.

    edit: and AAPL stays in it’s 81.00-81.50 trading range. Go figure.

    edit 2: AAPL breaks out of it’s trading range…to the upside.

    Have no idea what to do here. Might sell some if we get into the 83’s. Still hanging onto about 10% of my normal position.

    I must ask: was today the bottom?  Ha!

    We’re over 83?  How is this happening.  I couldn’t convince myself to buy at 80, sheesh.

    Me neither. Just stayed away so I wouldn’t be tempted.
