Apple returns to $500 for the first time since January and a look at bond bearishness


Apple is up 10% this week and outperforming just about every major index out there. It was up on Monday, and then on Tuesday Carl Icahn sent the stock soaring. Today, the huge news is Apple crossed $500/share for the first time since January.

Sentiment on the StockTwits $AAPL stream absolutely nailed this move and in just one chart everyone learned about the importance of price patterns.

Apple may be one bright spot for the tech sector, but after the closing bell Cisco ($CSCO) plummeted 10%. They announced that they plan to cut 5% of their total workforce. However, some segments showed strong growth and now more than a third of Cisco’s market cap is in cash.
