Apple stock takes a dive, then a leap, in the middle of iPad announcement

APTOPIX Apple

While techies marveled at the new iPad from Apple, stock brokers on Wall Street struck while no one was looking.

Apple’s stock dropped over 5 points from the day’s open just after the start of the unveiling at 1:00PM Eastern Time.

The stock has since gone back up over 3 points on the day, but not before, undoubtedly, some folks made a lot of money.

Since speculation about the mythical Apple Tablet, Apple’s stock prices have steadily risen.
