Apple was the safest of safe havens last quarterOctober 3, 2011: 5:00 AM ET
Up 13.59% in a quarter in which the NASDAQ fell 12.91%
In his Tech Trader Daily column last week, Barron's Tiernan Ray noted that the three months that ended Friday saw some spectacular flameouts in the tech sector, including Netflix (NFLX) down 56.88% for the quarter, AOL (AOL) down 39.58%, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) down 38.32% and Yahoo (YHOO) down 12.4%.
He didn't include a chart, so we have. And as thin blue line above makes clear, Apple, up 13.59% in Q3, was the safest haven of them all.
