    Default AAPL sans Jobs

    Steve Jobs passed earlier today. AAPL is down 0.27% after hours. Does his death trigger a massive swing either way? Will AAPL be ripe for the shorting?

    I dont think so. It was known that he was unfortunately going to pass, plus the succession plan is already in place. It would have been different if he was fine and died in a car crash.

    Doubt it, the succession plan was performed flawlessly. I think a larger impact would have occurred if he showed up to the event this week. Tim can and will successfully run the company.

    He hasn't been CEO for a couple of months now. I don't think this will be a big deal for the stock.

    For the world though, we lost a great, great man.

    Agreed. Time Cook pretty much ran the company for the last year or so. Steve gave Apple the chance to continue his dream, and I honestly think what he has put together will bring opportunity for Apple.

    who knows - it might actually be a lot better. a genius in product design? sure. but his closed systems stifle innovation within and outside the company imo.

    AAPL doesn't build products for analysts and wall street, they build them for everyone. Take this info for what its worth and make your own decision...

    high-level look at insider trading at Apple Inc over the past 12 months. A total of 462,869 shares of Apple Inc stock was sold by insiders, totaling $152,741,391. Over the same time 12 month time period, no shares of Apple Inc were purchased by company insiders.

    Apple Inc (AAPL): $1,133,198 of stock sold by Jeffrey Williams; 1 Additional Transaction

    and I chuckled a bit reading this comment...there are really more pressing issues in the finance world to be concerned with than Apple sans Jobs.

    Apple's market cap: 353 billion, and people are leaving flowers and notes for Steve Jobs at Apple stores. Bank of America's market cap: 62 billion, and people are marching on its offices in protest. Capitalism- it can be done right, but most of you are doing it wrong...
