09:48 AAPL Apple pulls back sharply from highs as CNN Citizen Journalist report circulates regarding Steve Jobs' health (100.71 +0.51) -Update-

According to Silicon Alley Insider, CNN Citizen Journalist says Apple's Steve Jobs was rushed to ER after a heart attack. CNN's iReport says "Steve Jobs was rushed to the ER just a few hours ago after suffering a major heart attack. I have an insider who tells me that paramedics were called after Steve claimed to be suffering from severe chest pains and shortness of breath. My source has opted to remain anonymous, but he is quite reliable. I haven't seen anything about this anywhere else yet, and as of right now, I have no further information, so I thought this would be a good place to start. If anyone else has more information, please share it."

This was a prank from 4chan.net I was on /b/ at the time when a poster made the fake story then created a digg article to get it read. Shows how much power a mass of bored people can have.

Share holders should be concerned that company value is so affected by one individual, so much so that just a rumor (the 2nd one in 3 months), can bring the stock price down. I not sure that MS stock would fall if Steve Ballmer’s health were similarly reported.

Yeah, and it is just a rumour. The news confirmed this!

this is pretty big rumor to start, it could really mess with the already fragile AAPL - Apple Stock
