Big Shooting Star Action On Apple

TM Editorial Update: Many readers wrote in asking about the "mysterious 117.28 trade."  It turns out the trade did not happen. It was an artifact of the options market that looked as if someone had bought $1.26 million worth of Apple for 2% above market price.

11K traded 2% above market does not a market make.

Agreed, the author should fix this.

Not sure where the 117.28 high printed from... I'm pretty sure it is an error.
