Legal This is probably not entirely surprising. The European Commission has announced that it is investigating both Apple and Samsung because they may have breached antitrust rules with regard to patents used as standard in the mobile phone industry - otherwise known as FRAND patents. While the EC states it's investigating both Samsung and Apple, it's likely the investigation focusses on Samsung.

Samsung's price is up 4% and Apple's is down 3%. This suggests that Apple is in more trouble than Samsung.

Investors are worse than the parties involved - they can't even be labelled as squabbling kids.
They are panicky idiots most of the time.

A ban on iOS devices would be an unmitigated disaster for Apple.

Samsung without Android is still a $300 billion corporation.

That is how the markets think.
