Apple stock drops slightly after iPad event
Investors obviously feel more or less the same as Apple shares dropped slightly in price after the event ended and since then have slowly rebounded so the company’s stock now trades at around its initial price.
What is your reaction to this past Apple event - was it more of a solid upgrade or an underwhelmingly expected bunch of announcements? Let us know your take on what’s going on at Apple.

So, could the introduction of the iWatch be the thing that Apple needs to regain some of its reputation and stock standing? Or would that just be met witht he same reaction. Expected but not impressive. Hmmm ...
Apple may need to hit that revolutionary new device to once again be considered one of the leading innovators of mobile technologies.

IMO, innovation from apple side left the building when SJ died. RIP Steve Jobs..

Meh. I suspect the price drop was more due to a squishy response to when would the mini with Retina display be shipping. No sales date = uncertainty, which markets hate.

MEH, as what I have said. The people expect something but to no avail. And it was a big let down. I was thinking it would overshadow the NOKIA EVENT(Not that I seriously do) But no, Nokia will be the big buzz in town..
But still impressive design Apple.

Nokia the big buzz? Is it 1999 again?
I did love my N95 though.

Move on hello kitty.

It's a well known thing that Apple's stocks drop a bit after an announcement. Let's see what the future will bring for them.

Just wait for their next earnings call. If better than expected then you'll see the stock price go up.

The devices were solid expected upgrades. I think wall street is missing the charismatic Steve Job who could convince you that a Apple design "pet rock" was the one more revolutionary thing. It is a testament to his great sales and marketing geniuses. Without his charm on the stage Wall street feels let down and Apple stock takes a hit. It's not Tim Cook fault it's just that his talent and strength lie in optimizing supply chains and manufacturing partners schedules. There was only one Steve Jobs. without him as Apple found out the first time he left, anything they bring out will do well but not as well as Jobs would have been able to market it to the masses.
All in all a good upgrade to both iPads but more so to the mini 2

Not really. When SJ was still alive he unveiled some pretty revolutionary products at the time: the iPhone, iPad and the iPods. However, now that Cook's CEO, it's been boring rehash after boring rehash.

it's been 2 years since steve jobs passed away. in that time they released the iphone 5/5c/5s, updated laptops, new mac pro, and now updated ipads. i agree it's going to be hard for apple to innovate w/o steve jobs, and don't think cook can do it, but i would at least give a little more time. i think the true test for him will be the iphone 6.

Dude no one cares about Nokia anymore. The stock prices drop slightly after every announcement.

To be honest, the iPad Air and iPad mini 2 exceeded my expectation. Look like Apple is feeling the heat of the competition after all.

Nothing like competition to improve the offering. The OG mini left a lot to be desired. Hopefully the N7 (2014) further raises the bar.
