Just too much competition for the iPhone, appl needs something new
The market is getting Flooded with other great phones. Too many companies right now make the same thing apple does that's cheaper, in some cases better. Yes apple innovated/changed the entire mobile phone market but has run dry. The company isn't a growth stock anymore, it's simply getting day traded now.
There's nothing special about the iPhone anymore that Blackberry, Huawei, Lenovo, Nokia, LG, Samsung, HTC, or Motorola can't produce. The market is too diluted.
I believe Cook and Oppenheimer knew this coming 9 months ago so they rallied the stock with GS and now we are getting the debris falling. This is one reason they remain secret and silent and just keep deflating any rally when they open up to speak. They do not have anything new good to say so the market is selling them and since they are cash rich they can afford to wait. I am sure they will be paid well when the new re-organzation pays out 2 years from now.
