Apple's Cutting-Edge Challenge


The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Andy Cross, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, the guys discuss Apple's 10% selloff, following the release of its earnings report. While most companies would love to have the unbelievable earnings that Apple has, the company is a victim of its own success, setting the bar so high that it just didn't hit the sky-high expectations analysts had for it. They also discuss concerns over competitive threats to Apple, such as Samsung, and they talk about how the company will continue to innovate from here, and what it's going to do with all that cash on the balance sheet.

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, more importantly, your portfolio) going forward.
