iPhone Madness…

by Ryan on July 2, 2007

You know the market is gonna rally when all the business news is about a phone. It’s kind of like knowing that the market is going to rally when we have a major war going on in the Middle East and the world’s most popular headlines are Lindsay Lohan in rehab and Paris Hilton in jail.  Disclaimer:  This is totally conspiracy theory BS here but somehow it seems to me like when the media focusses on the rough and not the fluff, that the Dow moves down and when all we hear about is fluff and $600 cell phones, that the market moves up.

UPDATE:  USA Today actually ran a story with this premise in late 2009.
