Cheap iPhone: Threat or Opportunity?

In the following video, Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker takes a look at two opposing calls on Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) made by analysts today, as speculation continues to swirl regarding the possibility of a downmarket iPhone later this year with a lower price tag. Would the increased market share that comes with reaching consumers that can't currently afford the premiums on Apple products be worthwhile? Or would the "iPhone Air," as it has been speculatively named, only cannibalize current Apple products, offer very low margins, and have no real impact on the bottom line, while risking damage to the Apple brand?

There's a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. In a curated report, Eric is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
