At first, the European Union's $14.5 billion tax bill looked bad for Apple stock.
When the news broke early Tuesday morning, AAPL stock fell as much as 2% in pre-market trading.
But soon after the market opened Tuesday, shares of Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) didn't plummet. Wall Street decided the Apple tax bill news wasn't so bad, after all.
