Depite stock fall, Apple is slowly regaining public confidence

Depite stock fall, Apple is slowly regaining public confidence
MarketPsychData is a company that tracks hundreds of online sources like newspaper articles, blogs and tweets, to get a perspective of the public's emotional feeling toward 6,000 companies. With the data posted on a stock chart, professional traders use the information to make technically based buy and sell decisions. Based on the information collected by the firm, despite the recent collapse in its stock price, there seems to be as little more public confidence in Apple.

Apple shares have dropped sharply from the September 21st high of $705 (which not coincidentally was the date that the Apple iPhone 5 launched) to Friday's close at $390.53. Meanwhile, as optimism in the company slowly moves higher, the chart reveals that trust has really come off the bottom showing that the public is beginning to feel better about the Cupertino based company.

Could it be that rumors of an Apple smartwatch, dubbed the iWatch by the media, are making it seem as though Apple has its innovation mojo back? Or perhaps the rumored expansion of the Apple iPhone range to low priced models and different screen sizes is bringing a warm and fuzzy glow inside people once again.

An iwatch would not be innovative, the idea has been around for a long time and there are already smart watches confirmed to be in the works. There basically just waiting for flexible screens now.

The iWatch would be the most innovative concept ever.

Well the car has already been made, but look at the innovation the continues to occur in the auto industry. It's all about what you do with the product, that defines innovation javac. Apple could take the smart watch to a whole new level... You do remember a product called the iPhone that came out in 2007 don't you, we'll touch screen smart phones had already been made palm trek 750, Htc touch running windows mobile, but apple innovated. Now look at the mobile industry particularly google/Samsung.

I will agree the iPhone original was their greatest achievement but that's where it stops. They have been producing the same phone fir 6 years now. Androids issue was that they started out with a bad start. They had tons of issues and the iPhone did not. That's where the iPhone and android gets their reps from. Which both have become blurred over the years

"I wonder what's next®" Just look at already existing products and you will know what will be next from Apple.

Troll how have they copycatted Sony, other than the concept itself, when we haven't even seen the iWatch yet?

I think the most innovative concept ever was organ transplants. Something that actually saves lives. The iWatch will be cool, but most innovative concept ever...nahhh

It might be Apple's most innovative concept ever, not thee most innovative concept ever. Depends on what they do with an iWatch... Motorola almost had a watch with MotoActv. If they woulda added some extra things .....who knows... Like it was mentioned....its already been done. Dont know how much different Apple could do it. The orig iPhone was radically different than any other phone. It was a risk and it paid off for Apple. Dont see how they can do that for watches.

Yes because apple need not worry they only had 5 million iphone 5s returned. they need not worry about anything!! They are making a comeback!!! But in all honesty you can only stay at the top for so long. Apple is on its way out mark my words

Is there a deadline? They'll be dead in a year, 5 years, 10 years, or 50 years? What does your magic 8ball say.

trends come and go, granted Apple has had this iPhone trend going since 2007 but eventually people will move on and none too soon. in the 80's people wanted to deck out there appliances and door handles in that cheap ass gold, now its brushed nickle(which is a perfect example of how long term trends are) I hope i see the iPhones demise in the next 2-3 years because i dont know what else they could possibly do to sale the same ugly ass phone over and over.

admit it or not. apple is one of the best Mobile Manufacturer as of today.thats the reason why other mobile manufacturer (HTC, Samsung, LG, Blackberry, Nokia, Moto etc..) strive hard to compete with thier new, fresh and powerful products.and that is the reason why other manufacturers study the meaning of INNOVATION. for me apple really deserves to stay in the competition...

did i said something wrong on my comment number 3? im not blind on what is happening on apple right now..but sir simply used your mind please..have you ask yourself why Samsung , HTC and other manufacturer offers us the BEst android phone now?a powerful android phone? because they want to compete with apple.they want to be greater than apple.

you do realise samsung has the largest market share out of all of those right? and android outsells the iphone? android controls around 70% of the world market while the iphone only controls about 20% With apple having as many issues as they have been having things are only going down hill for them. But people will continue to think it is a better product because they are blind.
