    Nice to know Einhorn is loading up on Apple, while the many other hedge funds are dumping Apple.
    The question is, how does Einhorn's record compare amongst his hedge fund manager peers? He is either really smart right now, or really stupid, time will tell.

    He´s putting the money where his mouth was and personally I think that if he beleived the right thing was for Apple to raise the dividend and repurchase stock, he sould be buying sotck afterwards or at least hold his position. Consistency...

    Apple stock price volatility hasn't made any sense for the last 3 years. It's up a day, it's down a day. Everyone is an expert, and "told you so". Very illustrative how lame the whole game is. May as well start throwing darts. We're easily bored. How pathetic and manipulated we are.

    Einhorn doesn't have a "new stake" in GMCR...he's short, and has been for quite a while [Zero Hedge also incorrectly reported him as a long, quite sloppy]
