Thanks Denny yes I agree that the butterfly effect may be at work here. Just rumors from Chamanth in his tweet below, but they support the hypothesis that some hedge funds got hit quite hard (and I think are probably forced to sell off other shares to cover, which I suspect could be high growth stocks like some of ours). Also interesting that he is saying retail investors are buying.

In any case, it's never fun to lose money even if it's paper losses, but I do find Saul's posts on perspective have been helpful to sooth my overactive tendency to want to sell.

I do find it troubling that Apple could have such an incredible quarter and still be down after hours though. Not sure how to digest that one.
