If Apple is indeed able to get innovation back, whether it be a watch, a television or something else, then these concerns that Yeung and many others have may subside. Innovation isn't dead at Apple, not with the majority of Steve Jobs' team still at the ship. So far, 2013 has been a lackluster year for products, as well as the share price.
"Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software, and services that we can't wait to introduce this fall and throughout 2014," Apple's CEO Tim Cook said.
Where Apple's share price goes from here is anybody's guess, but the company probably still has an ace or two up its sleeve. If Apple is able to execute on that and demonstrate to the market it needs these products, that'll get investors "thinking different."
