Investment thesis - The end of out performance, revenue growth & margin risk
Apple was an exceptional company. Prior to Sept 2012, we were fervent advocates of Apple with bullish recommendations. A problem is that Apple's products are no longer cutting edge, in design or technology, The competition has caught up and product fatigue is setting in for example the iPhone 5 launch.
This has become a crisis. Radical changes are need or growth & margins will decline significantly more than expected; leading Apple to the same fate as Nokia & Motorola.
Weakening 2013 Q1 Results - rapidly slowing growth and falling margins.
