Fair enough: I should have been more precise. I should have said 2.5 weeks (what I really meant in my question was, since the day of Apple's latest quarterly earnings call on Jan 21).
Indeed, the fact that it has moved up consistently and remarkably over what its ß would predict is what grabbed my interest (although, I am sure you'll agree, the ß is a useful measure over a longer haul than just few weeks). Could be, as you say, the disappearance of the SJ fears, but even on that front, I do not seem to have seen any specific news.
