• Apple bounces after Friday's drop

    Opens more than 5 points higher in advance of Monday's earnings report

    As might have been predicted, Apple (AAPL) shares opened sharply higher Monday morning after a Friday rout that knocked more than $10 off the stock's price -- and over $9 billion off the company's market cap.

    Many investors found the timing of the sell-off suspicious, pegged as it seemed to be on a bogus report that Deutsche Bank had downgraded MORE

  • Why AAPL dropped 10.32 points Friday

    Apple got whacked for no good reason in advance of Monday's earnings report

    I don't pretend to understand much about how derivatives work or what hedge fund managers do, but I've been watching the ups and downs of Apple's (AAPL) stock price long enough to recognize a pattern when I see it.

  • Apple daytrading: How to cash in on the Macworld keynote effect

    The buzz among Apple (AAPL) traders today is a thought experiment that Matt Haughey worked up at A Whole Lotta Nothing. He writes

    A few months ago I was thinking about Apple's rise in value after the iPhone and how Steve Jobs does a great keynote every year, and naturally I thought "I wonder if there's a way to make money off quick investments around the keynotes?" Then I thought "What MORE

  • Red flags and roadblocks for Apple investors

    There's a fascinating discussion underway on The Mac Observer's Apple Finance Board -- one of my favorite places for tracking the sentiments of Apple (AAPL) investors.

    The participants on AFB tend to be bullish on Apple and long the stock, but they're smart investors and have good antennae for anything that could affect their holdings -- up or down. So I was interested to see how they would respond when a MORE
