Well, Apple (AAPL) – – which, like GOOG, I pretty much never trade – – blew the doors off again. It's trading about $35 higher than its close price and has slapped about 26 points onto the /NQ as of this writing.
The company is nothing short of amazing. Pretty incredible what consistently fabulous products and a well-managed organization can do for a stock price, isn't it?
I guess anticipation of this is a big reason why small caps totally outpaced the general market today (black is the Russell 2000 and blue is the S&P 500).
