It’s official. One share of AAPL is now more valuable than the low-end iPad 2 with Wi-Fi (16GB). On Monday, Apple stock surged past the psychologically appeasing $500 level, setting a new all-time high for the stock, which shows zero sign of cooling. The traders I spoke with today at the Chicago Board of Trade say nobody was entering sell orders at $500 this afternoon because few traders and investors believe a price pullback is forthcoming.
