Well, unforutnately for Apple stock holders, each of these last 6 times Tim Cook has spoken publically Apple's stock has dropped.

I'm sure most Apple stock holders would be very happy if Tim Cook took a vow of silence. Huffington Post has more details.

Consider this: The last six times that Cook has put himself out there, Apple's stock declined afterwards. It's a streak that dates back to October 2012, when Cook introduced the iPad mini, and it is a trend that has gone unbroken for about five months now: When Cook appears, AAPL goes down
