    Apple is on it's way to transitioning from a growth play to a value play

    Apple has some major issues at hand, including but not limited to, declining quarterly earnings (yoy), cannibalization of products, rapidly increasing product and pricing competition, declining profit margins, etc.

    Also, as I said before, Apple needs to continue bringing new products to market. Not just updated products. The reason is because once people own a product, they don't necessarily upgrade to the next release of the product. They may wait a couple/few cycles before they upgrade because what they have is either good enough, the cost isn't justified, or they're in a renewal cycle which prevents them from doing so without incurring fees/surcharges.

    New products, not just updates to existing, is essential to growing the business. It appears that Apple may be losing its way in regards to product innovation.

    My feeling is that AAPL, the stock, is going to have a tough road ahead and may only tread water at best for the forseeable future.
