I've zapped my PRAM with little effect.. (snip)UPDATE: If you have an older Mac or iMac, try zapping your PRAM three times in a row (something I've never had to do before). Shut down your computer, turn it on and immediately hold down Option-Command plus the P and R keys on your keyboard. Keep holding them until you hear a "bong" sound, it will shut down and restart, you'll hear another "bong", then let it do this a third time and take your hands off the keyboard and let...

The 7-for-1 was meant to position AAPL for inclusion in the Dow Jones index, which (in my opinion) was unwise. Dow connected companies tend to do worse after they're added.In fact almost all of the stock related advice Apple has taken has turned out to be a bust.
Your source must be accurate, after all it came straight from the Internet.
Since there are so (relatively) few institutional investors in AAPL, I'd have to guess that it trades mainly based on sentiment and momentum. Emotional mobs of traders are a very dangerous thing when there is a continual stream of negative news about Apple being fed to news outlets and from "analyst notes" with an agenda.
I only asked because there are so many negative stories floating around about how difficult it is to make a decent living as a developer.
