For most companies, on most days not even 1 percent of the total free float shares are traded every day.
Apple has 4.33bn shares in free float. Hypothetically, what would happen if nearly all the owners of the stock stopped trading in the hope that its price will rise in the future or in expectation of a dividend or some other incentive?
In this situation, let's say that only 100 shares are being traded every day by traders. Do they have absolute control over the price (Not Value) of the stock? Can they drive the price of stock to insanely low/high levels?
