Taking stock: The X effect on AAPL

<article>
   <section class="page">
<p>A funny thing happened to AAPL’s inexorable trajectory to zero dollars a share.</p><p>If you play the ponies (otherwise known as investing in individual securities) and follow Apple, you probably heard that the failure that is the iPhone X (spoiler: not a failure) was driving Apple’s stock ever downward. Let’s review.</p><p>Oh, come on. It’ll be fun.</p><p>On April 27th, CNet bemoaned:</p>

<p>Apple's stock has dropped about 8 percent over the past two months. It closed Monday at $165.26 and was ticking upward slightly in premarket trading Tuesday.</p>

If it was worth noting then, however, it’s probably also worth noting that as of close on Thursday, AAPL’s now up 6.5 percent from that February position CNet thought was so important.
