Of course, I'm just kidding, but if they don't do something by the end of the year, they should buy some big island somewhere and call it Appleland.

gutless is putting it very lightly. the mods allow ENTIRE discussions to be dominated by these OBVIOUS trolls. it is now the norm as opposed to the exception. it should be embarrassing to AI, BUT THEY GET MAD AT US WHEN WE COMPLAIN! it's completely ridiculous, and severely diminishes AI. and i know we're not the only ones noticing/bothered by this.

Yeah, we all understand. It's how someone responds that's the problem.

Hey, that was my idea:

Hell, with the current cash hoard, Apple could afford to buy a dozen prime islands and build an idealized AppleWorld as the ultimate Apple enthusiast tourist destination but they'd still have $35B to $40B left in their coffers.

The "share price" of any stock is nothing more than the accumulative "opinion" of all the buyers/sellers of that stock. Any and all "news" that may enter into the thinking of those same buyers/sellers has an effect on that price. If I, or any other rational investor, had to choose between two companies .... one with no debt and a boatload of cash "in the bank" .... and another with no cash and a ton of debt .... the choice would be an easy one. IMHO, a lot of people tend to place too much emphasis on the "technical stats" of a company and forget that the stock market is nothing more than a "gambling house" and is swayed by "mass psychology" much more than tech. stat info. It's easy for an "investor" to legitimize an opinion with statistics .... but in most cases, that would be, not only not helpful, but misleading.
