In a month that's been a rough one for investors everywhere, it's been especially rough to be an Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) shareholder. The stock's down since October 1st, supporting the idea that Apple's prodigious winning streak has finally come to an end. Fueled by weaker-than-expected earnings, the company shares sit below the $600 a share mark, once again. Fortunately, the company has several reasons for shareholders to stay the course, including the recently launched iPad Mini and the iPhone 5, in particular. In this video, Fool.com analyst Andrew Tonner explains why Apple investors should not lose faith or get rattled by the recent earnings report.
