Yes, Steve Jobs' health is a recent topic. Ok, so buy some puts to protect your position just in case. Other than that, what's not to like about AAPL?

Best strategy here is to buy puts a few days before earnings, and sell them the morning after earnings, because you can bet AAPL will sandbag the guidance. But KEEP THE STOCK!
