Why Is Apple’s Stock (AAPL) Still In The Red?

Apple's Stock (AAPL) has yet to recover

Well it looks like Apple’s stock (AAPL) is still in the negative since earning reports came out last week, though the stock has risen a bit, it is still much lower than it was over a week ago.

When we took a look at Apple’s stock (AAPL) last week, the stock had taken a dramatic 12% dive in stock value overnight. However the earnings reports were not bad, as a matter of fact it was the second highest earning ever reported by a U.S. corporation at $13.1 billion as reported by CNNMoney.

It seems that though the current status of the company wouldn’t lend to worries, most investors are looking to the future as they usually do.

The worry comes from the fact that there is a dropping interest in Apple products, mainly the iPhone and the iPad.

With many individuals looking to older versions of these devices at a fraction of the price, it makes it less likely for consumers to purchase newer versions.

In addition, competition is picking up on the open market, and Apple products are no longer exceptional or unique, thus causing a drop in Apple’s stock due to anticipated drop in demand for the company’s premium priced devices.

Looking at Apple’s Stock (AAPL) over the last few days it seems that there might be a slight upswing in stock value, however it is unknown how much it will increase in value, and if it will recover to pre-last week values, and possibly increase in value as it should have with earning reports being extremely good.

    Here's a fact for you.. Apple's iPad is not at 43% of the tablet market share. That's a staggering drop of 53% from 2 years ago when they had 97% of the market.

    Where are all those analysts who were saying how iPad will dominate until 2016 and Android tablets will barely reach 50%.

    By this time next year Apple will be lucky if they have 25% of the marketshare for tablets.

    Yes I will keep my apple stock. Simple question… Would the world be better without apple? Competition is a good thing… Hunger creates creativity.

    Your comment is completely unbelievably. Of course if the ipad is the ONLY tablet it will have a 97% share, once other tablets flood the market it cant keep that share. As the amount of tablets increase, Apple's share will inevitably decrease, it's impossible not to. I'm not sure why a decrease in tablet share is worrisome to investors, as long as they are increasing the amount they are selling, the total market share should be almost irrelevant.
