Icahn Gooses AAPL Ahead of Earnings


It seems that after every price swoon that gets AAPL-haters and shorts excited something or someone comes along to goose the stock, and panic the naysayers and shorts.

That was Carl Icahn’s tweets, which did the job this morning.

He was tweeting around 10:40 AM ET, when AAPL was circling 550.

His influence has popped AAPL by 1.2% so far, “Icahn pop” as the price-structure heads for a test of last week’s rally-high at 560.20, on the way to another challenge of the Dec-Jan resistance line, now at 564.80.

Only a give-back of the “Icahn pop” back under 550.00 will delay the timing of the expected thrust to test and hurdle the Dec high.
