209 Hedge Funds Rejoice As Apple Passes $500
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/13/2012 09:33 -0500
Presented with little comment - AAPL trading $503.34:

Why is this good news for the “financial industry?” Because Apple is now the financial industry, with a record 209 hedge funds holding it (a number that has likely surged in the past 3 months). As Apple goes, so goes not only the entire Tech index, the NASDAPPLE, the global capital markets, but the entire 2 and 20 model. We wonder how long until LPs ask their hedge fund advisors why they paying management fees when everyone can just put their money into AAPL outright and bypass the whole “hegde fund” mockery.

Apple Responsible For 90% Of Intraday NASDAPPLE Gain
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/15/2012 10:27 -0500
With AAPL’s stock price up another 1.5-2% today, we thought it instructive for all those index traders, hedgers, arbitrageurs, and market prognostictors to comprehend the scale. 90% of the move in the NASDAQ today is directly due to AAPL.

$AAPL....this is monster...it turns NASDAQ to be NASDAPPLE.
