Apple Corps

By -

My dear friend Rob Reid had a book launch party last night, which I attended. He’s written a massive new novel called After On, which I’ll do a post about once I manage to read the tome.

The big news in the markets, of course, is Apple, which is roaring to lifetime highs at this very pre-market moment, up over 6% on strong earnings. This is pushing the NQ higher too, of course, although its own gains have softened a little overnight (hence the black bar, instead of white) and which itself is NOT at lifetime highs. The NQ rocketed over 7% in the month of July alone, so I guess the excitement is already sort of built into the overall market.
