Most if not all of the stock market is short sighted by default. It's far too easy to buy and sell.

Any company selling top of the line models only in a supposedly declining market and increasing both revenue, profit and also gross margin is a big achievement.

Esp. in the light of those stockholder panic from Steve Jobs being ill, this was without Steve Jobs at the helm and they did well.

Another case of buy on rumor, sell on news.
