Groan...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Here we go again. Another lawsuit by a Florida company, SP technologies, contending an infringement of its 2004 patent. The company claims the patent describes a "method and medium for computer readable keyboard display incapable of user termination." Groan. It's being filed in--you guessed it--Tyler,Tx, the frivolous patent infringement capital of the US.

Between blatantly false rumors last week fueled by shoddy reporting on the part of the financial press, ,ensuing Bear raids by Hedge funds and frivolous lawsuits, AAPL is under siege by unethical groups seeking to capitalize on its success. It could use a healthy dose of good news next Tuesday. In this jittery market stoked by FUD masters (we even have at least one on this board), these incidents are insidious.

It has become increasingly clear that some analysts are using their influence to manipulate stock prices. Apple in particular is an attractive target because of its unique brand recognition and status. Intentionally planted positive or negative articles can cause the stock to move wildly in just hours or days thereby allowing a lot of money to be made by those in on the ploy. In a recent article at RoughlyDrafted well known stock guru Jim Cramer appears to explain just how easy it is to manipulate a stock with well placed, well timed rumors.
