On Friday Apple‚??s stock price closed at $527.68 per share (https://www.google.com/finance?q=aapl&ei=L8imUPizNcStwAODbw), the lowest it‚??s been in six months (http://www.crazyjoys.com/apple-inc-nasdaqaapl-stock-price-plummeted-to-6-month-low,20121552). Since September, the company has lost about 25 percent of its value from its peak of $702 per share. So what‚??s gone wrong?

Analysts say that Apple has had a string of misfortunes lately, ranging from missed¬*earnings estimates (http://arstechnica.com/apple/2012/10/liveblog-apples-fy2012-q4-earnings-call-today-oct-25-at-2pm-pdt/),¬*management shakeups (http://arstechnica.com/apple/2012/10/forstalls-exit-from-apple-conflict-with-execs-jubilation-from-employees/), missteps on mapping software (http://arstechnica.com/apple/2012/09/apple-ceo-tim-cook-apologizes-for-ios-6-maps-promises-improvements/), supply chain problems (http://arstechnica.com/apple/2012/10/iphone-5-shortage-hon-hai-says-theyre-hard-to-make/), and increased pressure (http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2012/10/study-shows-25-of-americans-own-a-tablet/) from competitors.

"I think it‚??s the perfect storm for Apple," Van Baker, an analyst with Gartner Research, told Ars. "There‚??s a combination of a lot of things, and add to that, people are starting to think that Apple won't bring out something that‚??s truly innovative every few years."
