While Twitter was soaring, tech giant Apple(AAPL) continued to lose ground for a second day. Some traders speculated that activist investor Carl Icahn, who took a position in the company last year and has been pushing for a big buyback, may be unloading some shares.
"$AAPL I hope that was Icahn selling," said afernandez321. "Lets get rid of him. Now lets move on."
StockTwits user StrayTrader said it certainly smells like a large institutional investors is selling shares of Apple, but even if that's the case, he stressed that "there are plenty of us who believe in it."
"$AAPL Patience is the key, everybody knows Apple is the #1 smartphone maker in the world," added OwensInvestmentgroup. "Care less about a down day. Bullish."
