If you don't want to pay $100, don't. I wouldn't. But at least if you really need one, they still have some available.
Seeing as stock prices are market determined while we are talking about a supplier determined price, your analogy fails pretty hard.
Pretty much the only time it would semi correspond is for an IPO, and most of those lately have been failing pretty hard.
Better analogy, if stock was price x and I decided I would sell it for 2x. Nobody should buy it because you can still get them at x if you look. Only complete idiots buy at the 2x price. Pretty much just taking advantage of people who are new or don't know any better.
