FORTUNE -- Apple (AAPL) closed Friday with the stock still down 31% from its all time high of $705.07 set on Sept. 21, 2012, and down 8.65% for the year.

But fasten your seatbelts. With expectations running high for the special event reportedly scheduled in 10 days, it could be another bumpy September.
