Shares Of Apple Just Jackknifed Out Of Nowhere, And It's Close To An All-Time High

Shares of Apple just jackknifed out of nowhere, jumping 2% seemingly on no news.

The stock is a couple bucks away from its all-time high.

UPDATE: Chris Ciaccia at TheStreet.com points to this Engadget story on iPads getting some kind of retail clearance in China. The timing certainly fits with the spike.
