Then why are you trusting what Cramer is saying. Fomenting is a short term strategy. Good for a few hours in the day, and, while a company is not reporting, good for less than a week. Apple has been in this pattern for a long time now. Locked in a channel. Fomenting or any other short term strategy is not what is affecting the stock. The price is a reflection of investors belief in the stock, derived from quarterly info and forecasts.
