    I wouldn't call a 2% change greatly though.

    at $500Billion Market Cap... 2% change is a great change at a more absolute scale.

    Very true, but when zooming in on stock owners it is obviously not 2% of $500B. Sure, can be a lot, but it's simply fluctuating. Everything is, and we shouldn't be bothered by it. Just as we shouldn't be happy about a 2% increase as this might be gone before the bell.

    Sold all my remaining AAPL on the recent high. Too much politics around this stock. Still best company ever by far, though.

    Again, these anal-ysts are why I'm no longer in the Market. Can't stand having my investments effected by idiots that are still wet behind the ears.

    Jabil is down over 20% today. That definitely puts a (short term) dent in my portfolio.

    Jabil should be slammed for have one customer make up 50% of their business that is pretty stupid especially when you are talking about Apple being that 50%. No company should have that much business with a customer and Apple has destroyed companies because of their over reliance on Apple business. At any time Apple can change direction and one day your in and the next day your out.

    I have it under excellent authority that they don't. They have specifically limited business with Apple to prevent them from having that much control over their operations.

    AAPL is just a stupid and irrational game. I wonder why Tim doesn't wrestle the bull by the horns on this one. And believe it or not, if healthy, and in the same circumstances, a guy like Steve would eat these analysts alive.

     

    I don't think that there is a better CEO than Cook for Apple, he certainly is very important no matter the position he takes, but he should be "feared". Who would try this on Bezos? The guy would just buy the media (like he did) and destroy the company behind such manipulative games. They know it.


     

    What part of the word "non-event" was not clear?

    Down about 1.5% if you hold CHL (ADR) stock, but that's still nowhere close to 10%.

    While Amazon doesn't make much profits, they have built up a huge business. When they start to stop expanding a lot, the profits will be huge then.

    And those of us who got caught up in the mania and poured all our savings into AAPL at 699 walk the earth muttering bitter nothings into whichever ear is kind enough to give a listen.

    Your not making a point.

    So now people are judging Apple by underperforming supplier's earnings? Good Lord, when does it end? Apple is the most successful company this holiday, bar none. They're iPhones and iPads are blowing off the doors. I don't know what else they could possibly do to be more successful. Stocks suck.

    I understand that Cisco is at least as big as Apple for them. Their drop could very well be driven by Cisco's sales growth decline.

    Those such among us will be alright when AAPL eventually breaches 900 in a few years, especially if they have been reinvesting the dividends for some additional gains.  Not the best ROI they could have had, in hindsight, but not the disaster that would have been if they had weak hands at 400.

    Update: by the end of the day AAPL gained almost off the loss back.  Yawn.

    So professional stock analysts really are no better than an monkey throwing a dart at a dart board. I knew it.
