Apple Inc. (AAPL): The Company Isn’t Innovating Fast Enough

April 10, 2013 10:29am NASDAQ:QQQ NYSE:XLK

old phoneTravis Hoium: It’s been six months since the last major product announcement from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) , and the tech giant is allowing competitors to catch-up. Google Inc’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android, Samsung’s Galaxy S4, and even Microsoft’s

(NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows Phone 8 have had time to improve products while Apple has largely sat on the sidelines. Erin Miller sat down with Travis Hoium to see what Apple needs to do to excite consumers and investors again.

There’s no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology’s largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool’s senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
