Hey Nasdaq, take it out of the index.  It no longer belongs in any index.  It no longer belongs on any exchange.  It needs its own exchange.

Watching the EURUSD fall also makes me believe a major investment fund blew up somewhere. The insiders know and are keeping it secret (while selling) until the sheeple find out they are hosed.

I think you´re being unfair. I´d say the success of Apple depends on four key products...Imac, MacBook, IPad and IPhone. 

 

But where are the people crying "bubble" on this one? When it comes to gold everybody is so eager to call the top.

iMac and MacBook are barely a drop in the bucket of revenue.  Apple's current price depends on iPad and iPhone alone.
