Two years after Steve Jobs’ passing, is Apple safe?

Talking Numbers

Steve Jobs passed away two years ago today. With Apple's stock lagging behind the market since then, is the company a good investment?

It was two years ago today that the world lost Steve Jobs. In a memo to Apple employees today, CEO Tim Cooke marked the passing by saying:

"Steve was an amazing human being and left the world a better place. I think of him often and find enormous strength in memories of his friendship, vision and leadership. He left behind a company that only he could have built and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

But recently, Apple has come under criticism for not innovating fast enough.

Over the past two years, the company's shares are up only 14% compared to the NASDAQ Composite Index's 46%.

Should investors be happy with the pace of new products and is the stock attractive at these levels?

On CNBC's Street Signs' Talking Numbers segment, Gina Sanchez, founder of Chantico Global, looks at Apple's fundamentals. Checking the charts is Abigail Doolittle, Technical Strategist at The Seaport Group.

Is Apple a buy? Watch the video above to hear what the fundamentals and technicals have to say about it.
