Diabetes-focused bio-pharmaceutical MannKind (MNKD) reported this morning and is currently down nearly 2% in pre-market trading.

Upcoming earnings this afternoon include smoothie retailer Jamba (JMBA) and therapeutic drug manufacturer Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ).
AAPL had a roller coaster of a week, starting out at 120, rising to nearly 124 early in the week in what appeared to be strong a "divvy-run", then selling off on ex-div, yet still winding up a full point higher than the week started. AAPL dipped as low as 120.62 on Friday on relatively low volume and saw as high as 121.81. AAPL closed the intra-day session and week at 121.06, ending another OPEX.
This morning in pre-market, AAPL opened 3 cents lower on huge volume and dipped to the mid-120 area for most of the morning in conjunction with Futures. By late pre-market, AAPL regained 121 and hit a high of 121.24 at 8:47am on low volume before settling back down towards 121. AAPL is currently up 4 cents at 121.1.
Classic max-pain is 120.
