Market recap: The Dow and S&P 500 closed at five-year highs amid a rally in financial shares, led by BofA, and upbeat earnings reports from Avon, Fossil and Michael Kors. Techs lagged, as Apple was pressured after Tim Cook failed to provide any indication of a dividend hike. Crude oil gained 0.5% to $97.51, the dollar lost ground vs. the euro and yen, while 10-year Treasurys fell in price to yield 1.982%.

    iCook does not care about stock holder
    He has a big ego like Job but have nothing to back up that big ego
    It is time for stock holders to real put pressure on him and ask the board to fire him

    With AAPL Mkt.Cap. down, correlation between S&P500 and APPL is not as strong as it used to be.
