AAPL then bobbed up to an intra-day high of 112.46 at 10:32am on before slipping underwater and stabilizing in the upper-111 area and then remaining in a narrow range near 111.75 for the rest of the afternoon on mild volume until 3pm when AAPL sunk near the lows into the close on low volume.

This morning in pre-market, AAPL picked up with yesterday's close and initially warmed up to the upper-11 area but soon sunk due to a UBS conference call to discuss iPhone procurement, scraping a pre-market low of 110.60 at 7:39am. AAPL is currently down 84 cents at 110.73 as we approach the open.
