    $AAPL last-minute drop to pin @126 to wipe out options then shoot right back AH. If that's not manipulation, I don't know what is.

    • inside man 55: Something doesn't seem right that's for sure. I don't think it's manipulation, almost sounds like panic selling for some reason.

    • pocohonta: Both AP & Barron noticed "some" entities shorted 126 calls, long OTM puts, then dump shrs late Friday, so calls=0 & OTM puts suddently ITM

        If you are thinking of selling $AAPL, wait until 3/19 when $DIA index fund is required to sell $T and replace it with $AAPL

            rumor re: $AAPL Watch supplier having labor issues. Last time the worker went on strike because mgmt didn't give them "moon cake" & bonus.

                Rumor resurfaced about $AAPL joining the DJIA. Lots of hedge fund rushing in to own it, but index funds that will soon need AAPL has not.

                    If u have $AAPL deep ITM covered calls (>120), WATCH OUT 4 dividend arbs where call holders exercises and "steal" your dividend tomorrow.

                    • inside man 55: this was the reason I covered my calls. I am glad to hold onto my shares and will resell March calls once the dividend is paid. Good advice.

                    • pocohonta: Feb Wk1 weeklys only. Roll up to $120 strike, assume stock closes @120 today. If you don't, then your stk will be called away 2 days early.

                        my guess is that $AAPL will close at exactly 119 today (or 120 if market rally toward close) so that ATM options=$0

                        • inside man 55: It's a good bet poco, I will take 119 or 120 this week as we head higher into the dividend payment two weeks from now.

                            I'm extremely bullish on $AAPL w/earning tomorrow, BUT I'm buying some protective put & put spreads just in case people "sell on the news".

                                State of Union will likely include repatriation of foreign corporate cash toward domestic infrastructure. $AAPL will benefit.

                                    At an all time high of $114.31 after hour, $AAPL just touched the pre-split price of $800. Still long via 15 LEAP calls

                                        $AAPL $109 pin. My short 109 put now worth $0. So predictable, just like last Friday & most other Fridays.

                                                Obama said today he is open to Congress sending him "repatriation bills" and to use the $ on transportation infrastructure. Good for $AAPL.
