They don't play well with others, they haven't had a brand new product since the IPad and their is a lot of redundancy in their products.
I'm not lamenting the lack of massive growth in its share price. I'm not disappointed that it's not at $750 or what have you by now. I'm lamenting the continuous release of dismal news regarding Apple's supply chain problems. That's it. Tim Cook is supposed to be a supply chain/operations master, so these issues are particularly peeving. The lack of product innovation does bother me, but I can't wholly blame and be pissed at Cook; he never was and still isn't an innovative, charismatic leader.
You add in a slowing global economy, the fiscal cliff fears, and the increase in capital gains tax and of course AAPL was bound to fall. But that fucker, Cook, has only managed to exacerbate the AAPL sell off by fucking up exactly what he should be a guru of. That annoys the piss out of me. Dude looks like a bitch too. Watch him on keynotes. No charisma whatsoever.
Yes, AAPL is most definitely oversold, but part of me wonders what AAPL's share price would be if:
a) The iPhone 5 resolved its initial supply problems within a couple weeks. If they aren't able to meet full demand
b) The new iMac wasn't rumored to have significant production delays due to manufacturing issues
