Apple's stock is trading nearly 5 percent higher, with one analyst calling a recent sell-off in shares of the iPhone and iPad maker "insanely insane."
Shares of Apple Inc. rose $25.24, or 4.8 percent, to $552.92 in midday trading Monday. Even with the gain, the stock is down nearly 22 percent from the record high of $705.10 that it hit in September.
Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White says the sell-off in the past eight weeks is overdone. He cites new "blockbuster" products for the holiday season -- including the iPad Mini -- as reasons for buying the stock.
Monday's increase is on track to become the biggest one-day gain since May 21, when the stock closed up 5.8 percent at $561.30.
