Steve Jobs Died 2 Years Ago Today, Did Apple Die With Him?

Former Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, passed two years ago today. Apple has become a battleground stock in the years following his passing. The new CEO, Tim Cook, is a more-collaborative leader than Steve Jobs. He's obviously been a more shareholder focused CEO by instituting a dividend, a share buyback program, and meeting with large investor Carl Icahn. These are all worthy endeavors for Apple investors, but has the company lost the innovation that was famous under Cook's predecessor?

Numerous reports mentioned a "four-year pipeline" that Steve Jobs had in place prior to his passing. What should Apple investors look for in the upcoming two years? What are the possible "game changers" Tim Cook has referenced?

Finally, is Apple a victim of its own success? What does its low valuation say about its future plans?

In this segment from today's episode of Tech Teardown, Erin Kennedy discusses Apple two years post-Jobs with Jamal Carnette and Evan Niu, CFA.
