                    $AAPL drops $P from its in-car system: So much for $P's first-mover advantage in cars.

                            $AAPL buy back news are bearish: the money is already spent, the stock is still down, less money to spend going forward. Shares go up anyway

                                $AAPL, $AMZN, now $TWTR and $P - with margin debt at record highs, a lot of traders must be hurting. Margin calls may push stocks lower.

                                        • Andrei Volgin: Stop this "reinvested" nonsense. Just look at their balance sheet and income statement. You cannot reinvest what you don't have.
