Is Apple's Afterhours Weakness Based On The Assessment Of A Less Than Credible "Doctor?"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

As is by now well-known, Apple stock is underperforming after hours following reports of an allegedly sickly-looking Steve Jobs leaving the Stanford cancer center. The National Enquirer has released photos supposedly of an emaciated Jobs, yet one who is not readily identifiable as the Apple CEO. The National Enquirer, who initially reported the news today (to be published tomorrow), talked to critical-care physician Dr. Samuel Jacobson,
who said, “Judging from the photos, he is close to terminal. I would
say he has six weeks.” That said, given the reliability of The National
Enquirer, waiting for further news before jumping to conclusions is
advised. Furthermore, as TNW reports, "We’ve done a little digging into Dr. Samuel Jacobson. Jacobson appears
to be a Florida based pulmonologist (breathing doctor) – not Oncologist.
Which would naturally make you wonder just how qualified he is to
diagnose someone via a photo, especially outside of his speciality.
" Obviously, a prudent question. While there is still no definitive confirmation either way, and Apple has not issued any statement, the stock has moved on the news, and we believe that this information should be shared as it is in the public doman and market moving.

The National Enquirer photo (via TNW).

And more from TNW:

It has been confirmed today that Steve Jobs is receiving treatment for cancer in the Stanford Cancer Center in Palo Alto, California. RadarOnine
reported today that it’s the same Clinic where Hollywood Actor the Late
Patrick Swayze was undergoing chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer in
April 2009.

There has been no formal confirmation of what type of cancer Jobs is
being treated for or if he is being treated at all for cancer from the
Apple spokes team. Jobs was not forthcoming about the reason he took a
medical leave of absence.

Photographs of the 55-year-old Apple CEO were taken on Febuary the
8th outside the clinic and are reported to be published by the The
National Enquirer tomorrow morning.

In one photo, Jobs was getting out of his car a day after a full day
of work at the company’s Cupertino campus. The photos show Mr Jobs
looking painfully frail and weak, with his jeans and dark top hanging
loosely on his 6ft 2in, thin body.

Jobs has previously withheld information on his health, such as when
he was treated for a form of pancreatic cancer in 2004 and underwent a
liver transplant in 2009, something that worries Apple investors who
feel the company’s future rests in his visionary leadership.

The Daily Mail spoke to Dr Jerome Spunberg,
a certified Oncologist with 40 years experience, who said: “Mr Jobs is
most likely getting outpatient chemotherapy at Stanford because the
cancer has recurred.”

He continues: “He is terminal. What you are seeing is extreme muscle
wasting from calorie depravation, most likely caused by cancer. He has
no muscle left in his buttocks, which is the last place to go. He
definitely appears to be in the terminal stages of his life from these
photos. I would be surprised if he weighed more than 130lb.”

Pancreatic cancer is almost always terminal. My mother died of that in 2009. It's just a matter of time before chemo can no longer hold back the cancer cells. Next you won't be able to eat anything. But IV can keep you going for weeks. Then it is all over.

I'm very sadden by this news -- it brought back painful memories.

Hey don't worry, this is obviously great news for AAPL and NASDAQ, both of which will somehow be up huge by tomorrow's close.  I'm guessing that they will surge on the news that this is all a hoax.  Some doctor will come out and say "the fundamentals of the economy are strong" ....oh wait, I have that confused with The Bernank.

I can't figure out why he hasn't detached his name from the brand. The poor guy can't even have cancer in peace. I guess he's probably in denial like I would be if I were terminal but I would have thought the company would have taken measures to isolate itself from the physical health of one guy.

A pulmanologist would be expected to see a lot of lung cancer, which frequently presets the same sort of profound wasting as some other cancers. That said, I do not find that photo ID-able to His Jobs.  

Besides, AAPL's True Believers know he'll just rise again on the third day . . . 

 

Edit: And What is the big deal about "weakness"? It's just given up what it made in the day trade. Yes, over 1% but it's been a high beta stock lately, so really, what's the BFD?

He changed the way the world looks at products by always pushing the envelope further.  Fantastic career, no two ways about it.

Steve Jobs has nothing at all to do with the Federal Reserve Pump and Dump schemes and to insinuate that he did is, frankly, silly.  Sorry you have a problem with other people's success.

Perhaps, too, you are revelling in a bit of twisted shaedenfreude yourself?  That's not healthy, either.

Bottom line is to watch how the stock reacts to the news.

That is all that matters to investors.

Jobs could live 6 weeks or 6 years.  But if the big boys decide its time to "unload", then the stock will get crushed regardless of what the true story is about Mr. Jobs.

Hats off to Jobs.  He has created some great products.

And no doubt, the run in AAPL stock will go down as one of the greatest of all time.

As poor Rasputin over at Wall St. Bear lamented, he had the chance to buy $15,000 worth of AAPL stock in 1995.  If he had simply held, he would be worth $675,000 today.

That's a 45-bagger....

ABC News is reporting that Obama will meet with top tech leaders tomorrow - including Steve Jobs.

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2011/02/steve-jobs-and-eric-schmidt-to-meet-with-president-obama-thursday-in-san-francisco.html

Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who recently took a medical leave of absence from his company, and Google chief executive Eric Schmidt will be among the attendees of President Obama's event with business leaders in San Francisco Thursday evening, a source familiar with the event tells ABC News.

Earlier today, ABC News reported that one attendee would be 26-year-old founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, according to a source familiar with the meeting.
 
Jobs has been the subject of tabloid rumors and rampant speculation about his health since announcing last month that was taking a medical leave for undisclosed reasons.

Schmidt on Tuesday told a conference he was "very, very proud" of Google executive Wael Ghonim, who helped organize the Egypt protests that resulted in President Mubarak leaving office.

Schmidt himself will step down in April as Google co-founder Larry Page becomes CEO.

Jobs, Schmidt and Zuckerberg will be among many business leaders in technology and innovation the president will sit down and talk to, as he continues to sell his State of the Union message.

“The president and the business leaders will discuss our shared goal of promoting American innovation, and discuss his commitment to new investments in research and development, education and clean energy,” a White House official said.

GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, whom last month President Obama named as chairman of the new White House Council on Jobs and Competititveness, also will be there, a source said.

I'm an internist & I think the 6 week estimation won't be too far off.  Guessing the prognosis  here isn't all that difficult considering his history, very cachetic appearance, and most probable recurrence of a very nasty cancer.  Btw, a majority of pulmonologists are critical care doctors and amongst the smartest and hardest working of all practicing physicians.  Trying to discredit this doctor is one of the few stupid things I've read in a ZH article.

The enquirer has more credibility with me than msm. The msm covers for politicians. The enquirer goes after politicians.

As another doctor i dispute the six week diagnosis. He doesnt look that bad just yet, unless he decides not to drag it out. However camcer patients often dont struggle to live as long as possible anymore, so you may be right. He may choose the easy way out rather than delay death as long as possible.

The root cause is not the doctor.  The root of the problem is the reverence of Steve Jobs and the mistaken belief that nobody else can do his job as well as he can.  And the people said, "put a king over us."  That's the root of the problem.

Where are the biotech companies which promised us the end of cancer, blindness, disability... back in the 1990s, and then in the 2000s? I remember having read things like "The end of cancer" in Time-like magazines when I was a child.

Or maybe the whole "biotech" thing is just an ugly bubble?

If doctors can't heal the most common illness among men nowadays, I guess them -- and scientists - are not so useful after all.

We're still waiting for an HIV vaccine, also.

Jobs gave his life to technology, and he is finally owned by a lack of medical technology. Sad paradox.

I watched a video of a man from california on youtube he is diagnosed with skin cancer on his nose . The doctor prescribes a chemotherapy cream which basically burns the skin off your face with some pretty ugly side effects . After the man looks up the medicine and sees the results he starts looking for another way and he does not treat with the chemo cream at all (very important - often alternative cancer therapies don't work after chemo from my researching for years on the web ) . The man finds article after article about cannaboids and buys hash oil in one of those legal pot shops in CA . He applies the hash oil daily and films what happens . As he goes through the treatment ,you see the oil "pulling up" all of the cancer to the surface of his face then it disappears .Also I have read of Vitamin D treatments working and many others which are unpatentable therefore unprofitable. The holy grail of Cancer is a cure that is profitable for pharmaceutical companies not necessarily a cure .

2. Certified pharmaceutical dog errrr Oncologist says nothing.

3. Cancer can be cured since 1934 FULLY.

4. Not only mass fraud in banking cartels, but also "healthcare" cartels i.e. big pharma.

Cancer was cured in 1929 by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife with his Rife Microscope that could see the viruses in their living state and with the Rife Frequency Machine that zapped the viruses at their specific resonant frequencies.  Cancer is also curable by a tea called "Essiac Tea" discovered by a Canadian nurse, Rene Cassie in the 1930's:

Cures for disease are bad for the business of unfunded liabilites.

 

Don't upset the birth/death models!!

I guess the $25 billion of "cancer research" since Nixon is a bit of a drop in the bucket when compared to the $25 trillion or so spent on bailing Wall Street, the real cancer in America and around the world?

After chemo and radiation 11 years ago for a locally-advanced, aggressive (triplenegative) cancer, can only say this: please don't speculate about anyone's outcome -- we need all the emotional support we can get. Would it that willpower and creativity combined could kill tumors. Nothing is more frightening and alienating than undergoing tests and treatment for cancer. Even if you survive, the black cloud casts its pall. Forever. And the stress on the family is enormous.

As long as Apple's only viable competition in the computer arena is Microsoft they have nothing to worry about.  Some time very soon windows will have to be discontinued because A: it wont fit on any disc anymore, B: there isn't enough network capacity for upgrades, or C: the liability of such an insecure system is just to great for anybody including pornographers.
