Something tells us that Apple is headed for another boffo year in 2013, but first they have to endure the fickle nature of stockholders who lose confidence in the company with each new rumor of delays or any sign of trouble in Cupertino.

Is it a sign of the company "Applepocalypse," pre-quarterly earnings jitters or just business as usual? Only time will tell...

How about that Apple Inc.! Today marked the fateful day when the company’s stock price soared above the $500 per share mark, so there was likely a cascading fountain or champagne in ol’ Cupertino today. Definitely a nice early Valentine for Apple, but the week is young and there’s plenty more excitement to come, we’re sure. For now, let’s kick back and bask in the glow of a warm Monday, February 13, 2012, shall we…?
