Apple Stock Drop

Apple (AAPL) on Sunday evening announced that it sold more than 2 million iPhone 5 handsets during the phone’s opening weekend in China. The news put an end to speculation that China was giving Apple’s latest smartphone a chilly reception, however it wasn’t enough to put an end to investor concerns amid a new round of price target cuts. For the first time since February, shares of Apple stock fell into the $400-range in pre-market trading on Monday on concerns from a number of institutions that iPhone and iPad demand will not be as strong as they initially thought. Apple shares were down 2.12% from Friday’s close to $499.00 at the time of this writing.
