Looks like the SEC is checking out Apple's recent string of communications concerning Steve's health... as the article clearly states, there's no reason to assume any wrong doing, it's just a routine check, but interesting no less...
The Securities and Exchange Commission is looking into how Apple Inc. disclosed news about CEO Steve Jobs' health problems, according to reports.
Bloomberg News on Wednesday said regulators want to make sure investors were not misled over the months between when he appeared gaunt at a public appearance earlier this year and when he announced a leave of absence last week. It cited an unnamed person familiar with the matter who said that the review does not mean the SEC has any evidence of wrongdoing by Apple.
Bloomberg also reported last week that Jobs is considering a liver transplant because of complications from treatment for cancer, citing unnamed people who it said are monitoring his illness.
Jobs at first this month said he was seeking a "relatively simple" treatment for a nutritional ailment. A little over a week later, he announced a five-month medical leave, saying his health issues were "more complex." He was treated for pancreatic cancer in 2004.
Apple stock has declined 8.4 percent since the news of Jobs' medical leave, and dropped $4.13, or 5 percent, to $78.20 Tuesday. The company is scheduled to report earnings after the market closes on Wednesday.
