It isn't an issue of the corporation being bigger than just one man. The SEC is investigating because it's a matter of whether investors were mislead by Apple's disclosures. Because while a CEO is just a man, he's a very important man within that corporation and his health and well-being does in fact affect share prices. Whether that should be the case is entirely irrelevant to the SEC's need to investigate.

A corporation is bigger than just one man, but let's put that in perspective:

/. is bigger than CmdrTaco, but if he had Jobs' health issues, it would still affect the readers in one form or another.
