    That's much better than I hoped.



    I believe that this announcement was timed and executed with perfection -- exactly what I would expect from Apple.



    I honestly believe -- and am comfortable enough with my valuation of Apple's non-cash operations to say that -- those who sold today at the start of the day, and more important, those that will on that inevitable day, will probably regret it.



    That's, of course, only one data point.

    It is kind of remarkable, when you think about it.



    For years there has been speculation that Apple would suffer a mortal blow when Steve stepped down, if not in quality of products delivered at least in valuation.



    Yet here we are on the fateful day after and Apple's stock is pretty much just tracking with the market. Not to mention that we're likely on the cusp of another round of great products that will set sales on fire.....

    And it's repeated in the title of the article... Has AppleInsider noticed? I certainly believe this error does not diminish the professionalism of Mr. Cook, but knowing the Apple-haters..

    It's also a different verb.



    But apparently, I'm wrong. No wonder I'm not a CEO.

    Stop. You really need to figure out the difference between 'lie' and 'lay.'

    The only regret I have is not having any more money lying around to get more AAPL. I'm happy with my current holdings and I'm in it for the long run, but even I saw the buying opportunity.

    Agreed. Had my finances been there, I would of bought aapl every time it went down to the 350's.

    But my current holdings will keep me happy for the time being.

    Honestly, aapl is the only holding in my portfolio that is doing very very well.

    Crazy market conditions!!!

    Generally I find your postings insightful or interesting but I have to shake my head at this one. Are you actually saying you have never worked with somebody with a beard or moustache?



    Mind you I've never sported either, however it is not something that is an unknown.

    Well, mainly because Tim Cook is now the CEO. They have updated his page since this morning.



    Edit: Using Way Back Machine, a cached version shows Jeff as reporting to the COO. http://web.archive.org/web/201012202...fwilliams.html

    I'll have got out by then (anyway, with the kids' college coming up in a few years, I'll have some major liquidity needs that'll force some selling.......)



    Actually... the iToilet will be the product that changes people's lives the most. It will automatically analyze any incoming product and send the information directly to your iPad X. It will revolutionize the medical establishment.

    I find it more strange to work with a ceo who wears black turtle necks, jeans, and sneakers.

    Spoken by someone who obviously doesn't work in the fields of software or research science!

    I'd like to see Tim Cook receive a compensation package that rewards him according to Apple's performance under his leadership.



    Nah, the $1 salary was a tax maneuver.



    Steve already rakes in $30 million annually in Disney dividends.



    He really doesn't need a token salary. He'd mostly chew it up on income taxes and FICA/FICAMED (the latter which he'd never recover) plus Apple Inc. would have to kick in the employer portion for the latter. Stock option grants are a better way to compensate Steve. Capital gains are taxed at a lower rate than wages.

    Shouldn't that be "laying"?



    j/k

    No. The market has already priced in the SJ effect. The current AAPL price is a fare price w/o SJ.

    No, Apple has been artificially pushed down for the past six months due to Steve's leave of absence. It should have been $400 a share in May.

    It'll go lower. Cook has been doing a mediocre job at best since taking over as acting CEO:



    Iphone5 launch - delayed repeatedly

    Ipad3 - have to wait till next year

    Cheaper Iphone - still the 3GS no improvement

    MacBooks - supply still constrained for the new models
