It is interesting in several ways

firstly all these MoBo's were taken out of use or never got into front line service several years ago yet the Apple and Amazon stock price dropped.

Their current results won't be affected by this so why?

Bloomberg has been running a lot of attacks on other tech companies this year. Their principle target has been Tesla.

Now for the conspiracy theory.

APPL and TSLA are two of the most heavily shorted stocks on Wall St.

Shorters bet on stock falls.

So the shorters buy options on the target stock(s)

Their golfing/sailing/frat buddies release a story about something that happened years ago

The target stocks drop

The shorters sell the options before the end of the settlement period.

The shorters make money, sorry, make that LOADSAMONEY.

If only life was that simple eh?
