Update: Reuters has now posted a brief story. LoopInsight also reports that both of the earlier late reports are false and Apple is expecting to deliver its products “on-time” at least according to its internal schedule.
It is interesting that both of these “late” reports were from investment bankers – ahead of the opening of trading – who could potentially benefit from market manipulation. Something smells fishy.
AAPL started significantly down – over 10 points this morning but has recovered somewhat.
