Been down so long it looks like up to Apple shareholders

FORTUNE -- After one of the longest bear markets in its roller-coaster history, Apple (AAPL) rebounded Monday, closing at $565.73, up $38.05 (7.21%) for the day, while pulling the NASDAQ (+2.21%) and S&P 500 (+1.99%) up along with it.

It was Apple's second best day since 1984 in terms of dollar gains, second only to April 25, 2012, when the stock rose nearly $50 on higher-than expected second quarter earnings. (See the spreadsheet below from

In terms of percentage gains, however, Monday wasn't even in the top 10. Moreover, because Apple has been down so long, the one-day pop erased only eight trading days of losses. It still has nearly six weeks left to go to get back to its Sept. 21 high.
