so… let’s doing some reading between the lines.
I completely understand why some brian cork nay-sayers (and Apple-haters) are crowing over the recent pressure on Apple’s stock. but, as a shareholder I am still pleased with both the company’s stock, and it’s terrific products. and, there is probably a reason why Al Gore just exercised a lot of his options in Apple stock. read more about that here, Al Gore Nets Another Fortune on Apple Stock, despite the piece finding a start on CNBC, mind you.
Apple Bloggers Seem Convinced The WSJ Got Played By Stock Manipulators – finance.yahoo.com (and, other, even credible news sources).
“If you don’t smell stock manipulation here, I have a bridge to sell…”.
let’s be clear… there is evil at play, amongst all of this. possibly even tomfoolery.
from Brian Patrick Cork on LinkedIN:
this language may be a bit broad. but, here is your driving cause for Apple stock being under so much pressure (Chip is nodding as he reads this). Apple tends to under report it’s forecasts and then outperforms. however, for the last five months “analysts” have touted numbers (expectations?) outside of Apple’s that are not reasonable. then Apple shares get punished because inflated numbers aren’t met. no one (at least those that make a stand for situational awareness, any way) will claim that the Wall Street Journal is a bastion of integrity… But, this was REALLY bad, and blatant. We must read between the lines and hold the media accountable. I address all of this constantly in my blog: www.unsinkablebriancork.com.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
