It makes no sense for lawsuits to affect Apple because they have more money than God. Same for Google. Mostly it seems that some profitakers are at it and it is not the market or the labor news or European news that is driving the decline.

I have my eyes on the Splunk IPO and of course FB IPO which are due out soon. My plans were to sell apple in order to buy into FB or SPLK. However I have some cash I can move into my account if need be. I am not sure how much I should buy into FB all depends on what the price is.
If it starts out high like 80/share I will not get in too deep. If it starts at 50 I might go in the deep end and watch how high it flies.

Back in the day, and even four years ago, certain signature events all but guaranteed a full 24-hours of political press coverage. Win a primary campaign, dominate a televised debate, announce a major endorsement or deliver a policy address, and a candidate would be rewarded.
