And the winner was officially announced on Tuesday, Dec. 4 after HSBC downgraded Apple AAPL to hold from buy. 

It also slashed its price target to $200 from $205.

The downgrade came after Apple supplier Cirrus Logic slashed its third-quarter revenue estimates. 

The company cited "recent weakness in the smartphone market" as the reason for the price target cut.
