Yet in the real world of early 2013, Apple looks both battered and confused. It is starring, so to speak, in two Wall Street movies that feature Bond-like suspense, with no certainty of happy endings. One movie turns on the convulsions in Apple's stock: the zoom in 2012 to $700 per share; the plunge within months to a range around $450; a wild dip in mid-April to -- wow! -- $385. Good theater, for sure (unless you happen to be a shareholder who bought a high-priced ticket to the show).
