Apple as an investment is junk. The stock is grossly underperforming the market and similar type stocks because Tim Cook, CEO is inexperienced as a CEO and has run Apple shares into the ground. The company has the best products available in the smart phone and IPAD area in the world. The reason the stock isn't at the $575-625 which is fair value based on competent analyst authority is Tim Cook's incompetence as CEO. It's time for a new CEO.
Apple share price has nothing to do with what the NASDAQ does. Apple is totally decoupled from the NASDAQ. Its' share price is based on the company product sales and net income therefrom. Apple is fairly valued by Xmas at $570 a share.
Even if the NASDAQ falls to 3,500 Apple is still worth $600 a share. Apple is decoupled from the NASDAQ in case you didn't know. Apple share value is solely based on its' Iphone and Ipad sales and profits which will grow over 100% next year worldwide.
Why is Google $1,042 and Apple $524. Apple is worth more than $150 billion more than Google market Cap and Apple sells the best technological produced products in the world and will double its' sales next year. Something's wrong. Answer they have the wrong CEO.
Reason for your resignation, just look at Apple's share price. The shares should be over $575 by now and heading well into the $600's by January, but not with an incompetent like you at the helm.
