Hedge fund investors in Apple are "very worried" about the health of chief executive Steve Jobs, according to the New York Post. At a conference earlier this year, Jobs appeared gaunt. Apple blamed the weight loss on an unspecified illness that required treatment with antibiotics.
Someone we know recently contracted salmonella, which was treated with the antibiotic Cipro. This resulted in weight loss very similar to that seen in Jobs. But some investors fear something more serious. Apple's lack of disclosure about the health of it's powerful CEO is rattling some investors. In October 2003 he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a fact not disclosed for many months by the company. Apple is due to report its earnings later today.
