Apple I'm sorry, but I can't get around it any more. Over the weekend, we had a story in the reputable Wall Street Journal that Steve Jobs had a liver transplant two months ago in a hospital in Tennessee. This story got all over the Apple media - obviously - and was later confirmed by the hospital in question. All the usual questions arose about privacy, Warren Buffet had a remark about it, and so on. Let's get all these stories out of the way in one go.

That is really a stupid comment. He took leave of absence for six months with the full intent of being back. If he had quite his job fine no need to tell anybody anything but it was made clear that the plan as for him to continue as CEO.

It was also made very publicly known that Jobs had health issues, and anyone who knows any history about Jobs and Apple (which has been pointed out here should apply to any investor) would know that it takes a bit more than a flu (or "flew" if its the pig variety ;) ) to keep Jobs away from work, ergo it was obviously a pretty serious health issue for which he was taking leave. If that wasn't enough information for shareholders to make decisions then tough.
